But to be honest the correct list by land size not Pop..

Atlanta
Augusta
Columbus
Savannah
Macon
Albany
Athens
Warner Robins..........
if Atlanta could Annex all the land it want there would be no Macon/Warner Robins Metro, or Columbus Metro. Just to be saying

If Fort Benning gets as many BRAC jobs as expected over the next 5 years.. it will likely overtake Augusta as the state's second largest city. The two cities are separated by only about 8,000 ppl or less.. Growth for both cities has been stagnant... The Iraq war caused Columbus' population to decline.. but as those troops are pulled out and return as promised by Obama by 2010, then Columbus should see a population spike and coupled with BRAC, may be able to top 200K. Though I think the lable of 2nd largest city really doesn't mean a whole lot.. I mean we are often talking about differences of less than 10K ppl.. I guess it gives one city bragging rights over the other, but beyond that, it really doesn't mean that much.

physically, they are gone, but as for census data, any troops currently deployed in a war zone should still be included in the population count for columbus. so troops returning home wouldn't inflate any numbers, because they're already accounted for.

do you have the numbers from before and after the start of the war?


correct me if i'm wrong, but i'm pretty sure that's how it goes.

I believe it was the July 2007 census estimates where Columbus had seen a dramatic drop in its population (about 4K), all of it was attributed to the deployment of troops at Fort Benning. The returned of the troops corrected the data skewed data. Including the abnormal spike, unlike other mid-size cities in GA Columbus has enjoyed a steady controlled increase in population. The inclusion of BRAC troops, civilian personnel and normal growth will push Columbus well over the 200K mark. I suppose, when the actual 2010 census is taken Columbus will be the second largest city in GA again. For what it's worth. The problem we are having is trying to prepare for such a large number of people over a short period of time (housing, schools, hospitals, roads,...). It is a major undertaking, during a recession nonetheless, but I believe Columbus can pull it off. Columbus has a good group of men and women on the city council. It has dusted itself off from the demise of the cotton mills in the 80's and transformed itself into and high tech, financial, industrial and medical town.
