According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune the population in the Twin Cities is growing – but just ever so slightly. Apparently the Metropolitan Council reported that the seven-county metro area increased by only 12,000 residents in 2008-2009. The growth since 2000 has been 9 percent; we’re up to 2.88 million in the seven-county metro area.
The 15 fastest-growing communities between 2000 and 2009 are, in order,
Shakopee, Blaine, Woodbury, Lakeville, Maple Grove, Brooklyn Park, Eden Prairie, Prior Lake, Rosemount, Hugo, Farmington, Chaska, Savage, Plymouth and Ramsey.
