Beaufort / Hilton Head should become part of the Savannah CSA before Statesboro.

Hannahan, near Charleston. According to his profile anyway.

Because they're a lot closer and more economically / socially integrated with Savannah. We're talking about the area DIRECTLY ACROSS the Savannah River from downtown Savannah. Where I sit right now at my home on Wilmington Island, it is 10 miles by boat to HHI. I have tons of friends who live here and work there, or vice versa. It's kinda a no brainer.

It does have a downtown, but it is about a mile up Main St. from GA Southern. GA Southern almost feels like it could be its own separate town, it's that big. Most of the shopping centers are located on the city's east side along Hwy 80 near the bypass.

Except for the usual dime a dozen shopping places there, which I dislike looking at even more than the slums of many South GA towns, Hinesville is very boring. What really is so special about the place? I have never been to Statesville yet, but I really want to check it out soon and I surely will.
It was apparently big enough for the CB to give it MSA status. Although I will say that Hinesville has the advantage of being a two county MSA. Statesboro's micropolitan area is just Bulloch County.

Long County has a 2010 census pop of 14,464.
Liberty County has a 2010 census pop of 63,453.

Bulloch County has a 2010 census pop of 70,217, making it bigger than both Long and Liberty, but smaller than both combined (which is what Hinesville's MSA is). If Statesboro covered another county (like say Screven or Candler County), it's pop would outdo Hinesville's MSA.

HHI is close by the way the crow flies, but you can get to Statesboro faster from nearly all parts of Savannah...not to mention it is in the same State. HHI is included because both it and Savannah benefit from the association.

Ohhhhhh, okayyyy. Hanahan has become a big time 'synthetic' looking suburb in the past decade or so. Do not have any desire for those places. I'd much rather have an old antebellum house than a house that is so pre-fabbed and might fall over if you get mad and hit the wall during a football game, lol.

Alright, thanks a lot. well, those shopping centers can stay over there out of my sight too, lol. There surely is nothing i want to see there, same old same old scenery everywhere near a shopping district, lol. Many college campuses are even bigger than the towns they are in, with how much they have expanded over time. You can really see who has the money these days, can't ya? That and so many big new modern churches going up. i'd really like to know how a church can get so rich though. Sometimes I wonder if they aren't just a big corporate business anymore. Off topic- but the state of the church has saddened me these days. many churches that I have been to have become simply a meeting place for women to brag to other women how much and what all hubby just bought them, where they are going on a trip, etc- basically just to boast about whatever they can, and so forth. Then there are many men who want to show off their new vehicle they just bought and whatever. Yes indeed, values have gone down the port-a-potty in today's world.
