Columbus Growing

by Maureen McCabe on July 10, 2008

According to  “Columbus grows while rest of Ohio shrinks” written by Sherri Williams of the Columbus Dispatch,  Columbus grew 4.49% between 2006 and 2007.  The population of Columbus is now 747,755, according to census estimates.  The Columbus Dispatch article focuses on Cleveland shrinking as much or more than it does on Columbus growing.  Cleveland’s shrinkage is only second to New Orleans natioanlly… Enough about Northeast Ohio!

The Central Ohio  communities of Powell and New Albany have grown over 90% and 60% respectively, according the Columbus Dispatch.  Inner ring Central Ohio suburbs including Grandview, Upper Arlington and Worthington have lost about 5% in population.  The Columbus Dispatch says “It’s a common phenomenon as people have moved farther away from the city’s core seeking larger lots and, at least in perception, better schools. “ Better schools huh!?!
