Macon and Augusta will be head to head for area growth and jobs due to interstate access.
You can look at growth spread on both maps to see a great advantage.

Macon does look the closes to Augusta. The one big diffrence is, Macon only has yellow going into dark red around Warner Robins. Augusta dark red goes into 4 diffrent suburbs Evans, Martinez, North Augusta, and Aiken.

These charts don't say anything about growth... just population density. It does show that Augusta and Macon has more sprawl than the other cities... not sure that's a real positive.

Exactly. It has absolutely nothing to do with job growth. For that matter, Columbus and Augusta lead the way. Columbus is one of the few cities in the country that is expected to have positive job growth in 09.

Correction....Ft Benning will have job growth etc as per another members info(previous posts yesterday)
If your info is true why hasn't the city done ANYTHING whatsoever in anticipation of this massive influx of people.....? rofl
They are waiting on fed/state handouts as they have done in the past.
I think you contradicted yourself on prevous post and have once again challenged your credibility.

Dear Lord we all thought you were gone for good

BTW, here is your credibility http://www.usatoday.com/money/econom...-graphic_N.htm

Can't dispute quality data. Curious to see what bogus response you give.

Study up and have a great evening

Actually the heading says the same thing we have all been saying...........Jobs MAY rebound by 2010....lol

Here are some more recent facts that you always seem to miss......read slowly and take it all in.

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) -- The Columbus area receives a failing grade, in a new air pollution survey.
A report released Wednesday by the American Lung Association shows Muscogee County had 17 unhealthy days from 2005 to 2007, due to high ozone. The "State of the Air" report shows them as "orange alert" days, when air is unhealthy for people with sensitivities.
Russell County was scored with ten orange alert days, which also earned a grade of F in the report. Sumter County had nine, which earned the Americus area a D grade.
By comparison, Fulton County had more than 50 ozone alert days. Atlanta was ranked 23rd among the worst U.S. cities for ozone pollution.
The report gave Muscogee County a D grade for particle pollution. Six orange alert days for that form of pollution were counted. Russell County was worse, with an F for nine alert days.

Columbus with nearly a third of what fulton county had for the same period of time....??

Chris come quick....we need an explanation...ahhem..I meant excuse.

I'm still waiting to hear what these "maps" are supposed to prove or show. They don't show growth, just population distribution and density... they do show, that Savannah and Columbus MSAs are more "compact" and "dense" and Augusta and macon are more spread out.. covering a larger area. Sprawl is really not a positive thing, not if you value vibrant downtowns.

Ok, two little kiddies have been destroying the thread with their little fight, so let me just say this...

http://bestsmileys.com/signs11/19.gif (broken link)

Now that the kiddies will be on Romper Room for a nice long stay, let me also say this to anyone else who wishes to behave like someone who's still on formula and diapers...

http://bestsmileys.com/signs11/3.gif (broken link)

Stay on topic. Don't insult other posters. Keep personal jabs out of it. Or - we say byebye. This isn't a teen room, and we don't act like that here. Discuss, add to it, debate in a HEALTHY way if you will, but do not poke, jab, and insult others. See your shrink if you need to exhibit your issues somewhere, but don't do it here.

Back to discussion.
