The total state population was estimated to be 18,680,367 on April 1, 2007, an increase of 2,697,543 over the 2000 census count of 15,982,824 (16.9 percent growth over the seven-year period).

Slower growth is expected during the first decade of the 21st century with Florida's population expected to grow to 19,620,532 by April 1, 2010 (a 22.8 percent increase over 2000).

Should our state or counties start advertising the areas that can adsorb 940,165 plus of individuals that are expected by 2010.

The attached map and link provide information on all the counties. The north central and northwest part of the state can benefit from the development for new residents.

If the majority of the 940,165 individuals relocate to central and south Florida they will probably saturate the areas. I do know that we have families leaving the state, but should an exodus of 4 million be a reality?

Where are all those people comming from and why? Florida's economy is in shambles and the property tax situation is to blame. I look forward to Peak Oil to finally stop Florida development.

Maybe I am reading this wrong but I only see a increase of 940,165 new residents between now and 2010 that not really that many to be worrying about over saturating Florida.

hhhmmmmmm, clicked on the link, but the only thing that popped up was the same map, no text????
I, for one, am leary about more unchecked growth here in Marion County. We already have the dubious distinction of being one of the worst urban sprawl areas in the US, believe it or not!

I made a mistake in the number, I'll update my OP.

But this is a large number (940,165) and I believe this is an estimate that can make areas already limited in jobs, affordable housing a bit more complex...

Well lets hope the state does a better job of preparing for the next wave.

They can help out though. If you're going to vote, just go to a school in Lake Worth. No lines, ho hassle, in and out quickly.
