Fargo will continue grow and flourish. Yes, right now West Fargo is growing much faster, but that is because young families are looking for new affordable starter homes. So young families with kids tend to move into the towns surrounding Fargo. Fargo itself continues to grow with new commercial and residential development, but they build a lot of twin homes and condo's...so smaller families tend to move in and live in Fargo. West Fargo gets the young families with 3-4 kids...Fargo gets the newly married couples or retired couples moving into town houses and twin homes.

Assuming everyone is including South Fargo with Fargo correct? In South Fargo, there are alot of families with Kids moving there as the housing falls in the range of what they can afford. I know, I am one of them.

Compared to what I saw when I was in Wisconsin, the amount of Forsale signs here is nothing compared to what I saw out there. and I am not talking just number but the concentration of them on each block. Also talking with relatives who live out there who were looking for a house were able to offer much less than what people were looking for.

Good for them yes, but considering they move alot, could bite them if the trend keeps going.

I think Fargo really doesn't have much more place to really grow. West Fargo seems more like "extended" Fargo than anything else.

Yes, South Fargo is included in the Fargo population, since south fargo is not its own incorporated city. West Fargo is its own incorporated city. People need to remember these are just estimates. When they do the actual census count in 2010, we will see the true picture. We might find that West Fargo hasn't grown as much as they estimate, and that Fargo has gained, not lost population. Example is over in Williston, ND...the census bureau says Williston grew by 48 people in 2005, and 168 people in 2006...yet...the town has over 2,600 more people working there in the last couple years according to Job Service ND. Half empty aprtments a few years ago, now have waiting lists, new houses are posted as sold and sale pending, while the house is actually just a hole in the ground getting ready to be built, and half empty trailer courts are now full. These are just estimates...wait for the 2010 census...it will show Fargo actaully grew.
