Wow! Augusta doesn't have a better identity than Columbus. Nothing in Augusta is larger or known than Fort Benning or Callaway Gardens. I could even say THE GEORGIA STATE THEATER & NATIONAL INFANTRY MUSEUM,give Columbus a edge over Augusta.

And playing "what ifs" about Savannah-Chatham consolidation is pointless; with 8 municipalities in Chatham County, it can never happen.



Using your logic, that it's not fair to compare consolidated cities and traditional cities, then Augusta shouldn't be allowed to claim title of "Georgia's 2nd-largest City." If this density issue is such a big deal to people, maybe Augusta should have only incorporated parts of Richmond County where people live? Otherwise, you get what you got: A low-density city of 195,000 people in 308 square miles.
Augusta would actually have more 50k in the year 2012 similar to Greenville, SC(26 sq mi)..

The people living in Columbus bring up the 'second largest city' title daily... 85% to 90% of the people from Augusta hardly ever mentioned that... The 'second largest metro' does get brought up often...

Neither city really has a substantial identity, but Columbus's major problem is sharing its name with a much larger state capital. In Georgia or parts of Alabama, people might know you're talking about the Georgia city when you just say "Columbus," but otherwise you're going to have to specify. Augusta doesn't really have that problem and it does have a national high-profile annual sporting event, even if it is just for one week. Still, neither one really has huge name recognition.

I think your original statement was that in certain circles, Savannah may have a more positive reputation than Atlanta--which I could see being the case in leisure travel circles in particular. But name recognition is something entirely different and yes, Savannah's is high but let's not kid ourselves; Atlanta's is indisputably higher for a number of reasons and has been for some time now.

Columbus is also known to have one of the best sports complex in the Southeast. South Commons made a boom last Saturday.Golden Park is a rich name in the south. Everyone want to play ball there.

And so would Columbus. Hello? That sports complex you just bragged on was built for the 1996 Games.

I didn't know Golden park was build in 1996 for the Olympics. Golden park was build in 1905,A. J. McClung Memorial Stadium 1916. The civic center wasn't build for the Olympics. Now the soft ball field was built for the Olympics!
