Mauldin, Greer among fastest-growing cities in South Carolina



"Greenville city's population continues to grow, showing a 1.8 percent increase from July 2007 to 2008, and a 5.7 percent increase since 2000. Its 2008 population was estimated at 59,988."

It's now 2009 and Greenville should be able to add 12 residents! lol

I didn't say anything because I know how small the city limits are. 26.1 square miles. That's the issue. Most of the growth is just outside of the lines. The only way for the city to show growth on paper is to annex or infill. A lot people use the city like myself who don't live in the city. Its apparant to me that businesses coming to this area must be using different info to decide to locate here.

Just curious on why the city has not annexed more areas, though I think I know the answer... Seems like most SC residents do not want to reside in a town or city... not sure if that is the case in Greenville or not.

How did Charleston and Columbia reach 100's of sq mi's but Greenville is only like 26 sq mi's? To tell you the truth I do like Greenville's current size land wise...

I think this makes MUCH more sense. It's better for the city to develop itself if that size.

When they have too much sprawl and spread, then it seems they just let massive areas of it 'go to hell' so to speak.

I'm impressed by Greenville for bucking the trend of not just annexing stuff to annex for the sake of 'population' figures.

Dont know much about Charleston's land area.. but about half or a little less than half of the City's land area is Ft. Jackson and the majority of that base is undeveloped. The city does benefit from the population of the Fort as well. If you look at a detailed City Limit map.. they are using the Ft as a means to annex the NE section of the Richland County. It is interesting that Greenville does not pursue annexation on the scale of Charleston and Columbia..which may in fact allow it to focus services and development on a much more limited area, which may have its advantages.

It's definitely more useful to look at the area's overall metro population to gauge the "size" of Greenville, as much of the metro works in Greenville, but lives elsewhere. The city is the center of a quite large metro, so it has both small physical size, and the amenities of a much larger city (and then some!).
