These numbers aren't bad. Columbus should start seeing population growth again in 17-2018.


And the valley as a whole remains strong.

1/2 of a percent loss for Muscogee County isn't too bad. I hope we do see that population growth. The Auburn area and Harris County are growing nicely though!

I hope Muscogee can see more growth as well. Unfortunately though I don't think that will happen until we see another BRAC round. That's why I'm hoping congress approves a new round of BRAC for 2019. It would be an excellent opportunity to pick up new missions.

Benning will likely pick up more units. Seems to be the case as of late. Units between 500-1500 people.

Does anyone know what the population density is for Columbus? Wikipedia says it's around 900, but I think a recent newspaper article said it was somewhere closer to 480. Just wondering...

Most sources have it around 900 including census.gov so if anything I would trust the numbers closer to 900.

Phenix city is apart of the MSA, and Auburn-Opelika is the CSA

Hoping Columbus and AO join metros soon. Much better representation of the true size of the area.
