Don't get me wrong - I really like that area but OMG the traffic.

Several drops in the bucket...the 500 aren't all single. They'll also buy groceries etc. and support additional jobs. And companies will probably try to be near them. The last part could be a smallish effect or a very large one.

Is the 150 literally the number who move in per day? Or does it also factor the number moving out, births, and deaths?

I have absolutely nothing against Austin. I was just saying, 500 employees in a city the size of Austin won't be very noticeable. If it was 5,000 employees, yes that would be more noticeable.

Just note that I wasn't actually responding directly to anything you posted. I was making a general statement.

Like someone else pointed out, though, it's 500 employees and many of them will have families too. Construction and more traffic. Austin is growing rapidly and already has traffic issues, and this will add to the congestion.

But as I've already stated, I said from the start that either Austin or Raleigh were the choices that made the most sense to me, and I'm not surprised, or dismayed that Austin was chosen. Overall, I think it's a good thing.

Now that Austin has been chosen, you may continue this discussion in the Austin forum. This thread is now closed.
