Both areas are pretty nice, though I wouldn't want to be there during a flood!
Really nice homes but the Beach aspect of Hernando beach is rather misleading and while all these great homes are waterfront they have no access to the Gulf.

You are a minority when it comes to negative opinions of this area.
Much of that growth happened just after the year 2000. I would agree that BACK THEN people were coming to Hernando County in larger numbers. However, according to the US Census Bureau, Hernando County has only had a 1% change in population growth rate in more recent years. ONE PERCENT.

It would be interesting to see the demographics of that 1%, but I don't have time right now to research it.

The bottom line is, PRESENTLY Hernando County is not experiencing tremendous growth.

This is true for Hernando Beach South, but I believe Hernando Beach DOES have gulf access. It really shouldn't be called Hernando "Beach" since there is no beach to speak of. I tell you what though - you can get an enormous, lovely home right on the water there for a terrific price right now. I checked the other day and saw that there were several homes going for around 300K to 400K. That's pretty crazy cheap for Florida … but then again, you have to consider the location.

Between 2000 and 2010 the growth was 32 percent.

I have not seen rates for 2011-to date.

Here's another recent article about the growth of Spring Hill:

With growth down, what

I do agree with the article that the county needs some serious leadership in order to turn things around. I'm not smart enough to come up with all the necessary changes, but hopefully someday soon someone will step in and lead the county out of the slump it is in.

And here's some additional information that some may find interesting:

Population of Hernando County, FL - Census 2010 and 2000 Interactive Map, Demographics, Statistics, Quick Facts - CensusViewer

In sum, in 2000, the percentage of the population in Hernando County of children 4 years of age and younger was about 4.5%. In 2010 it was 4.9%. That's not showing a lot of growth among the preschool set.

The same goes for children 5 to 17 years of age. In 2000 they were at about 14.4% of the population. In 2010 they were at 14.8% Not a lot of growth among the school-age set.

So, it looks like Hernando County doesn't have much growth as far as children are concerned. The majority of people living in the county right now are older adults. It just makes sense that a community with low numbers of children would have less amenities for them. Hernando is not the place to go if you have young or school-aged kids … it just doesn't cater to them.

Slump?

I guess you have'nt been up here in a while. That article, from whoever they are, does not give any figures.

If we go by the US Census estimate

Population, 2013 estimate 174,441
Population, percent change, April 1, 2010 to July 1, 2013 1.0

That would be an increase of more than 1,700 new residents in one year.

Regardless of the growth rate, it is remains a great place to live.

Some things are just as dependable as the rising and setting of the sun each day.

About those younger children, or lack thereof:
Census reveals plummeting U.S. birthrates - USATODAY.com

That was 2011. Now 3 years later the number actually do show that the forecast was correct.

Why are you showing 2 sets of numbers for 2010?
