I know its growing very fast, but that fast? wow!!skate342 said:there's a photo thread for sioux falls, sd here:
it's about 150,000 with a metro of 200,000 expected to reach 300,000 in 5 years. the SE part of SD is growing pretty quickly between sioux falls and sioux city, but most other parts of the state are either declining or staying steady. overall the state's population is going up though.
i don't know enough about ND to make a comment for them.
I am sure North Dakota is attractive to businesses because the wage is extremely low, land values are probubly also extremely low and residential home owners pay businesses massive subsidies in this state.globill said:Grand Forks should pass 100,000 soon, which will make 5 in the region, 3 in Norht Dakota and 2 in South Dakota, so I voted for North Dakota.
Here is an article on Grand Forks from a recent Forbes magazine http://www.forbes.com/free_forbes/2006/0522/184.html
Interesting that all 5 of the Dakota metro were ranked in the top 30 of the best smaller cities for business by Forbes (4 of the top 6 even)
I'm pretty sure all 5 will show further growth in the coming years.
No its not growing that fast. I go there a couple times a month and the pace is nowhere near 50% growth in 5 years. I would say it will add another 10,000 to 20,000 in that time though.denvernative1982 said:I know its growing very fast, but that fast? wow!!
