Austin, second fastest growing city!

February 19th, 2011

According to KXAN.com , Travis County is the fastest growing in Texas during the last decade. This growth propelled the county’s population to 1,024,266 which was a 26.1 percent increases. Austin’s population growth of 20.4 percent pushed Austin into the 2nd spot for growth out of all cities in Texas and making Austin the fourth largest City in Texas. This population growth has obviously had a positive impact on the Austin real estate market

While this news shows that many people are migrating to Austin it could pose potential problems if infrastructure is not adequate. On Thursday, at the Austin city council meeting, the council approved a $700,000 budget to study a possible $1 billion urban rail project for Austin.
