There is a place called Corvallis, Or that was added to Portland's CSA that's like 90 miles from Portland. Portland has a CSA of 3 million now.

CSAs just seem kind of silly to me. Columbus had Bellefontaine added to its CSA, and I'm not sure why. The only reason might have to do with Honda, though. A lot of people in the Bellefontaine area work for Honda in Marysville, so they're commuting in and out of the Columbus metro every day.

I guess this is a big let-down for the Cincy boosters.

But hey, Maysville is an undiscovered gem of a town!

I am just not convinced what the importance of a CSA is other than maybe bragging rights. Perhaps it is because I have not seen enough as to how it relates to any funding.

As far as private business investment, I believe they are perfectly capable of evaluating for themselves the potential of a given region without an official government declaration this is one big economic pot, especially when it is fabricated.

I'm not sure CSA really matters in the scheme of things either.

Here's a good article on the differences between the Dayton and Cincinnati economies:

Cincinnati, Dayton economies differ in key growth areas


Quote:
The economies of Cincinnati and Dayton, two metro areas near each other along Interstate 75, are traveling in very different directions, an analysis of labor data shows.

While the Cincinnati metropolitan area added thousands of jobs in 2012, the Dayton metro had the weakest growth of the state’s largest metros — Akron, Cincinnati, Columbus, Cleveland, Dayton and Toledo, according to employment figures from Ohio Department of Job and Family Services’ Labor Market Information....


....“These two economies do share a lot in common, but they’re also dissimilar in critical ways, which is why we’re seeing different outcomes,” said LaVaughn Henry, vice president of the Cincinnati branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland

Not sure if any of you saw this, but besides the MSA estimates that came out today, so did county ones. They have Hamilton County growing again, at 802,038, which is +1,350 from 2011. Montgomery County, however, was still losing, though the loss was slower than the previous year, at -616.

Where did you find that information at? Usually the losses for the county is blamed on Cincinnati. Hopefully this is because the city gained. With all that is going on Downtown im not surprised. Hamilton County has not gained population since the 70's. I heard Baltimore reversed a 60 year trend as well.

Well since you asked. Maybe because its 56 miles to Cincinnati and over 60+ to Columbus. And maybe because Cincinnati has more jobs. Anyway way more people From Cincinnati travel to Dayton than Dayton to Cincinnati. Odd but true. Mainly because of Dayton's urbanized area enters Cincinnati's MSA.


And if this does not explain it NOTHING will.
