I searched this forum, but I don't find one that discusses Charlotte's population or growth. Man y'all slack.

Report indicated Union County is the fastest growing in the state. I think I heard the population is close to 200K. Correct me if I am wrong.

Huntersville is now in the top 20 biggest cities/towns in North Carolina, coming in at number 19.
Huntersville started the decade with 24,960 people, and finished it with 46,773.

Mecklenburg grew from 695,454 people in 2000 to 919,628 in 2010.
Charlotte is far and away the biggest city in the state. It's new population number is 731,424, a huge jump since the 540,828 it had in 2000

I agree about Charlotte, but if you look at the bigger picture, Raleigh and Charlotte Metros are almost identical...(Wake and Meck have over 900K residents), both experienced greater than 25% jumps in population over the decade, and surrounding counties are very similar.....

People from up north are flocking to the Charlotte and Raleigh metro areas. Meck and Wake should have over 1 million people in a couple of years. Huntersville's growth is reminding me of Cary.

Wonder why the Triad area isn't growing nearly as fast.

Part of Charlotte's population growth within the city probably has some to do with Charlotte's aggressive annexation of unincorporated areas of Mecklenburg County. I remember when I first moved here in the mid 90s, the Charlotte city limits were much smaller.

Charlotte isnt sleepy like it was in the 20th century.
Part of it is annexation but since the 90s new vinyl home neighborhoods,McMansions, Condos in, Dilworth, Plaza Midwood, South End and Uptown. Also all new apartment complexes too.
