Denver's number is pretty impressive. All the Texas cities (and Phoenix as well) have probably used annexation to boost their numbers and Denver does not have that option and is quite small in land area (155 sq. miles) compared to any of the others on the list.

As we are growing, can we not also assume that we are growing in all of the social economic groups? Or are we growing in only selected economic groups like white collar professionals?

Based on my personal perception, I think Jacksonville is growing across multiple economic, ethnic, and age categories. There is growth in housing throughout the entire city and at various price points and in diverse neighborhoods. We also have more infill development than we once did as evidenced by housing in Arlington, Beaches/Kernan, Springfield, Brooklyn, Town Center, Bartram, etc.

Chiraq spiraling down into the red with all of those murders. It still has strong anti-gun laws though.

1. Disappearing post OR
2. Someone will defend Chiraq

I think you are right, you can see it in the fact that many of the lots in the urban areas are seeing new homes built on them. JWB and WCP have purchased lots and are building new homes, many in historic neighborhoods. Its been quite impressive to see the new ones emerge.

The real key will be to look and see why people are buying them? Are they relo, are they medical related to care in the region, the NAVY is not ramping up new programs at NASJAX or Mayport, so what are the driving factors? Wage growth? New Mortgage/banking jobs?
