This isnít randomly picking places, so not all of the Rocky mountains or just in the Rocky mountains, a gateway city for the Front range will be Albuquerque. And if you lived in Jacksonville your in a gateway city of both PAM and Florida strategic economic regions while not in the Megapolis of either. I said it's two different things, I think thatís what yall are confusing over. Your looking for specifically Megapolises, and that's specifically the Raleigh-Birmingham corridor only, which I have said.

Oklahoma City and Tulsa have absolutely nothing to do with the Texas Triangle. Furthermore, how would Oklahoma City and Tulsa be gateway cities but Little Rock and Shreveport wouldn't be?

I still think that regions are trying to make themselves bigger by combining more areas then should be in one region. I know it looks better on paper but just because its smaller does not mean its less important. For example for the Front Range I think they should only include Pueblo Colorado on the south end to Cheyenne Wyoming on the north end. Texas triangle should only be in Texas let Oklahoma have its own region and the same is true for PAM. Let Jacksonville be its own region.

But the Megapolis is Raleigh-Durham, Piedmont Triad, Charlotte, Upstate South Carolina, Atlanta and Birmingham only. The area Around the Megapolis is the entire strategic economic region yes itís most of the southeast but itĎs smaller than Texas. Obviously the pull of what happens on the corridor itself will effect the entire region and especial in logistics gateway cities have a economic role. If the port of Savannah become busier it would benefit PAM so itís two things the specific developing Megapolis and the strategic economic region.
Thanks for clearing that up. I was always confused by "gateway" cities but your posts puts all that in perspective.

Doesn't OKC have economic ties to Texas?

I wouldn't consider them the Texas Triangle either (obviously), but OKC is a part of the I-35 Corridor. I don't think Shreveport or LRock is part of a growth corridor like that.

I think "I-85 Corridor" makes more sense for the Atlanta-GSP-Charlotte-Triad-Triangle corridor. Birmingham has ties to Atlanta, but in terms of growth and economy, it isn't quite the same as the I-85 corridor.

How important is the DAL/OKC relationshop vs. the relationship with LR and SBC?

My five and in no particular order:

The Texas Triangle
SOCAL, from LA to San Diego
Southern Lake Michigan, from just N of Milwaukee through Chicago east to South Bend, IN
The front range of the Colorado Rocky Mts
The FL corridor, from Orlando to Miami
The SE, from Atlanta through North Carolina up through Virginia into the nation's capital.

You can ride off Phoenix and Las Vegas (the boom is over for the long term) due to overall lack of industry, few 'good' jobs available, terrible education, oppressive summer heat, no access to water and major national/international trade routes.

Yes OKC & Tulsa have ties of course but I don’t see it having any more significant ties to DFW than Little Rock or Shreveport just my observation. So if Oklahoma City and Tulsa are Gateway cities than my argument is Little Rock and Shreveport should be also. Many DFW residents go to Shreveport to gamble. The city of Shreveport in essence depends heavily on the gamblers from North Texas pumping money into their local economy.

I think that OKC and Tulsa should be included in the Texas Triangle as regular cites, not gateway cities OKC and Tulsa area have many contracts with the oil companies in Texas. Oklahoma is home to large oilfieds and Natural Gas pockets in its on rights.

Dallas is closer to OKC than it is to Houston.
