Happens all over. Visit the Texas forum and look at the Dallas vs. Houston back and forth. Down right comical at times.

Im only responding, because you made this comment before. Fort Gordon, Savannah River Site, Plant Vogtle, and Phinizy Swamp all occupy acres of empty land.

Augusta's urban population is larger than Savannah's. The census recognizes the job market in Augusta is large enough to attract more residents from surrounding counties. The MSA is larger than all including Chattanooga based on that.
