April 9, 2007 St. George Fastest Growing Metro Area
Many of you maybe saw the news last week from the U.S. Census Bureau announcing St. George City as the fastest growing metro area in the nation. St. George area great by 39.8% between 2000 and 2006, this rate is almost 9% higher than the second metro area (Greeley Colorado at 31%). St. George is not the only Utah metro area to make this list…Provo-Orem metro area grew by 26% since 2000, ranking them 6th nationally. You can read and watch the KSL news story here or read the Census Bureau press release here.
On another note I’m looking forward to spending this coming week in the fastest growing metro area in nation for our 2007 Midyear Conference.
