Most of the population loss in Buffalo of this decade happened between 2000 and 2007. I think it will shrink until 2020, then by 2030 the metro will grow, then finally in 2040 the cuty itself will have HUGE growth

None of the above. The city's population loss has receded, now state resources in the form of $1 000 000 000 are slated for the city. The housing market is well positioned for newcomers, growth may be anemic but will pick up as industries consider Buffalo as a cost-effective alternative to Toronto and the eastern Great Lakes/Upstate New York area.

Growth is slowing in Phoenix, Nevada, Florida.. even the rate of growth in the Carolinas, Colorado and New Mexico won't continue much longer, we've seen decades of growth to these low density locations, costs are rising quickly and the perceived benefits begin to be fewer as the cost of living rises and the need to tax for services become evident. The markets once left in the 50s-00s (i.e. Northeast, Upper Midwest) become the next frontier for those wanting to move, try something different and look for an opportunity elsewhere. Much as the flight from Detroit is beginning to taper, the lure of $100 houses and steals on the market has brought in local and national investment realizing that the city was too big to shrink much more and prices would turn around. This process of growth and jobs in the city starts small, but I think the city surpasses 300 000 again by 2025 and perhaps 400 000 by 2050. There is just too much untapped potential and room for growth.

Good! I'm looking for a planning job and the one region I'd really like to work as a planner in is the Buffalo/Niagara Region. Let's just hope something good out of the billion dollars will come to fruition.
