Isn't Lafayette the fastest growing metro percentage wise in Louisiana?

I believe so. Baton Rouge has a pretty good job market but I don't know if the population is increasing as much as Laffy

If we look at census data comparing 2000 to 2009, Baton Rouge has the highest growth at 11.5%.

Baton Rouge +11.5
Lafayette +10.2
Alexandria +6.3
Houma +4.4
Shreveport +4.1
Monroe +2.4
Lake Charles +0.3
New Orleans -9.6

But, when comparing 2008 to 2009:

New Orleans +1.8
Lafayette +1.3
Baton Rouge +1.0
Lake Charles 0.6
Monroe +0.6
Shreveport +0.5
Alexandria +0.4
Houma +0.1

At least we are all growing...

Of course, let's consider the context: in 2005 (after Katrina), the NO area had a HUGE population loss. Since then, normal population growth/anyone returning to town/new people moving in will make it seem like there's this population boom......

Correct. That's why I presented both scenarios, both of which paint a misleading picture of New Orleans' growth.

I've heard that the city and metro are growing at a nice clip. Does anyone know how revitalization of areas like the 9th ward have come along?
