New Census figures were released today.

http://www.census.gov/popest/counties/tables/CO-EST2004-03-12.xls

From July 1, 2003 to July 1, 2004:

Miami-Dade gained 27,460 residents for a total of 2,363,600.

Built out Broward slows its growth. It only gained 25,977 for a total of 1,754,893. It gained well over 30,000 a few years ago.

Palm Beach is where the most growth is happening in South Florida. It gained 30,835 for a total of 1,243,230. Palm Beach has a ton of developable land for suburban type sprawl, so expect a lot of growth in future years, especially with Broward built out. Palm Beach and South Miami-Dade are the only places in South Florida where suburban sprawl can continue.

Broward growth

Thanks to the protected natural areas of west broward nothing can ever be built west of the Sawgrass Expwy north of I-595 and west of the cities of Weston, P' Pines, SW Ranches, and Miramar south of 595.

This has forced Broward to become more and more urban very quickly.

All new growth in Broward is infill with the exception of a very few empty lots scattered around.

To create space for more people, Broward county has been really incouraging infill growth to be focused in East Broward.

Remember? last year or in 2003 FtLaud approved a change allowing an extra 13,000 units to be built in their downtown.

13,000 units is the equivalent of 50 condo towers with 260 units each!!!!

The idea here is to make D'town FtLaud into a 24hr urban village like you see in cities like New York, SF, Vanc'v'r, Chicago, Portland...

If the growth that census shows continues, east Broward is going to be even more urban. Cool!

Hopefully, these growth stats will strengthen the county's chances of getting funding for the planned light rail system.

LOGYbogy and evryone else :) This Proves one big thing about the growth of the Three counties combined, the MSO population of Miami-Dade, Broward % Palm Beach Counties is about the third ( 1/3 ) of the State of Florida to date. :cheers:
