According to my calculations, the Columbus MSA is now 286,123, up from 281,768 in 2000. Wow, I do hope BRAC comes through soon because the metro area definitely needs a population boost.

People forget that Lee County, Alabama (right across the river) has 140,000 people. Auburn/Opelika is its own MSA but is in the Columbus CSA. The Columbus MSA is not representative of the area. The Columbus MSA is around 300,000. Here is the breakdown of the Columbus region (within 30 miles of downtown Columbus).

Columbus Region

Georgia Counties

1. Columbus (Muscogee County) - 189,885

2. Harris County - 32,024

3. Chattahoochee County - 11,267

4. Troup County - 67,044

5. Talbot County - 6,865

6. Taylor County - 8,906

7. Meriwether County - 21,992

8. Stewart County - 6,058

9. Clay County - 3,183

10. Marion County - 8,742

Alabama Counties

1. Lee County - 140,247

2. Russell County - 52,947

3. Chambers County - 34,215

4. Barbour County - 27,457


Regional population for 2010 is 610,832.

BRAC is happening as we speak. Those 30,000 people will be here by September. Once they are here, Columbus will regain its place as Georgia's 2nd largest city.

What is the "region"? The CSA? Or an arbitrarily-designated region?

Wow. Just wow.. see, this is why I want to get out of Georgia. Just because someone isn't your skin color or is foreign to you doesn't make them the reason your town went down in value.

How is Taylor County in the "Columbus Region" when it's closer to Macon than Columbus?

Region IMO is a 30 mile radius of Columbus. Majority of that population is already the CSA. The 2009 CSA was 450,467.

Why are you looking to move away? Based on the post you quoted, the xenophobes are leaving voluntarily!

Open-minded people are free to stay. Just be sure to support your local tienda every so often.
