AUSTIN (KXAN) Austin is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, but a new report suggests that explosive growth has only just begun.
For the twelfth consecutive year, the Austin-Round Rock-Georgetown metropolitan area was the fastest growing region in the country, among large metropolitan areas. Texas was the only state that had more than three cities in the 15 fastest-growing large cities and towns based on numerical change and the exchange rate. The Red Raiders at Texas Tech University also look good in green, as the Lubbock-based university ranked No. In other words, municipal projections show that the population of the Austin metropolitan area will grow by around 90% in the next four decades, while the MoveBuddha report indicates that it will grow by more than 210 percent during the same period.
Texas had the third fastest housing growth with a rate of 2.3 percent, compared to Utah, which had the fastest growth at 3.3 percent. To enjoy university Christmas much closer to home, Austin residents can head downtown, to the University of Texas at Austin, for Longhorn Lights, a new light show Christmas. The latest findings from the Census Bureau add more validity to reports that fewer people are interested in living in Austin proper and are seeking residence in the suburbs.
