Sorry, I'm not a realtor. The macro analysis of a giant neighborhood that says only buy a house in the middle of the pack makes me want a closer look.

I'm not saying clip the bottom off the entire data, I'm saying group by sections of Circle C. I've seen a realtor that posts that data in their advertisement in the CCR newsletter. I will see if I can find it.

Not all the details I was hoping for.

I should not have been defensive. Not being from here I can only give my view which is limited in comparison to someone that has lived here and has witnessed all the changes. I guess what happens is I see Williamson county as a really rural area. From what I'm hearing it must have been desolate before the growth. It seems surprising to me that these areas were so sparsely populated.

The other thing is I have a preconceived notion of what cities look like and the outgrowth of those cities. The city of Austin and the surrounding areas are still very rural looking to me.

I'm always saying I'm going to think before I speak but usually I speak before I think. I'm workin on that.

The population of WilCo grew from ~250k to 422k between 2000 and 2010 - a jump of 69%! Almost all that growth came on the southern side of the county, I suspect, and most of that in the Leander/Cedar Park/Round Rock area.

I pulled the older census results:
1960 - 35k
1970 - 37k (this is about the time I moved to WilCo)
1980 - 77k (this is the beginning of the original 'boom' that I am familiar with)
1990 - 140k
2000 - 250k
2010 - 422k

Georgetown
1980 - ? (sign from the 70's always read Population 7,000 something...)
1990 - 16,167
2000 - 28,466
2005 - 39,015
2010 - 47,400

Round Rock
1980 - 12,700
1990 - 31,745
2000 - 61,317
2005 - 86,316
2010 - 100k

My wife is a furriner - from Michigan. Yes, I have a mixed marriage. So her entire family, including kids, hadnt seen Austin til their Mom moved here. One thing they all say is it is amazing how quickly you can get in the country from Austin. Mopac south to 45, left on 1826 and you are in the country. Thirty minutes max from downtown.

You don't even have to turn left at 1826. Just stop at 1826/45 at Bubba's grocery store and get a cold one.

You dont even have to drive that far. Turn south on McKinney Falls parkway after arriving from the airport - make a stop at McKinney Falls State Park if you feel the urge. Youre only 6 miles from downtown but youre already in the countryside.

You are right about the state park. Very close to civilization. When sleeping in your tent and you hear those FedEx planes cranking up about 5 am you remember you are a lot closer than you thought! (Been there, done that!)

Cranking up 2 miles away. Considering that the runway is perpendicular thats as close as they get. When flights coming in from the west take a south approach they almost always fly directly over circle c and they are a lot closer to the ground than 2 miles. More like half a mile. I hear them flying over my apt on davis lane all the freakin time and they are a lot louder here than when im at that park.

Any day with a north wind would put the flight path on the base leg of an approach to AUS out toward Circle C, which is about 12 nautical miles away from the runway, but from reading the charts it looks like they'd end up well south of Circle C even with a fairly short final approach.

With a south wind you might have planes taking off and turning straight west, which would indeed put them right smack over Circle C (but also all of South Austin). I suspect they have noise abatement for some ways north, south, and west of the runway -- and they don't have any east/west runways, so nobody is ever taking off or landing directly into or out of Austin; it'd be the semifinal leg of the pattern that could be.
