Palm Coast and Flagler County: #1 in Population Growth

In an article published on Forbes.com today, Flagler County is mentioned in the number 1 spot in terms of population growth between 2000 and 2009.

The article opens stating:
" Residents of Flagler County are likely contending with busier highways and more crowded classrooms than they did about 10 years ago. That's because Flagler, like several Florida counties including Sumter County, St. John's County and Lake County, have been magnets for movers over the last decade; here, the balmy climate and a booming housing market drew retirees and families before the bubble burst, according to new population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau. "
A slide show counting-down from the 10th spot to the first spot for Flagler County, shows statistical data showing the population in April 2000 vis a vis April 2009, and growth as a result of domestic migration...



Here is the original Flagler County Forbes Article.

It appears in these times of a slowing economy, and despite some reverse migration, Palm Coast and Flagler County continue to preserve their spot as the fastest growing micro-area in the United States.

We're glad to be doing business here. :)
