Even Charleston and Huntington, which have been slowly losing population, showed growth from 2008-2009 which is the first time in many years for both. Looks like my predictions for Huntington were right. If/when many of the current planned economic development projects occur, Marshall continues its growth and crime continues to fall (down 16% in 2008 and 7% in 2009), Huntington is poised for some good growth over the next few years. I would also guess that final numbers for Huntington in the 2010 Census will be higher once MU students are added into the mix.

Hopefully this will growth continue for WV as a whole and we can build our economy and start to build a plan to replace coal when it is gone or restrictions are so tight that its benefit is miniscule to our state.
