CSA's, especially for small markets like all of the ones discussed here can be misleading. Auburn, AL is its own place and is a growing college town, not dependent upon what Columbus does or how Columbus performs.

I think some combine all of this and think "I live in a city of 500,000" or whatever. Sure, having smaller communities as satellites around a city means more people using a core city for services, but let's not confuse the difference.

By the summer 2013 Columbus population will be over 200,000,and the metro area will be over 300,000. I can't say the same for Macon.

I think most people forgetting that Columbus is a business town. It will always grow,I think Macon population could be a lot larger if it was the same.


Before Columbus was consolidated in 1971,in the 1970 census,Columbus had a population of 167,000.

Why people insist on comparing the Tier 2 cities of this state is amazing to me. They all have the same issues such as attracting quality PROFESSIONAL jobs and the same huge positive: low cost of living.

They all have more in common and are more similar than different.

Not being a native or Macon or Georgia and having lived all over the country, I would sum up that Columbus and Macon are both small cities that are relatively unknown outside of the southeast. Listening to folks battle as if there are major differences in the two is quite hilarious.

No offense, but most folks outside of the southeast have never heard of either and probably never will. It is okay, really... stop with the Napoleonic complex.

HA ur so slow, Look up Downtown London
Big Ben is not Downtown
Downtown is up the street from that and its skyline is way better than New york
