  1. Carolina Demography, "North Carolina's Fastest Growing Municipalities in Triangle and Brunswick County" by Rebecca Tippett, 05/27/2022 Excerpts: "On Thursday May 26th, the Census Bureau released 2021 population estimates for municipalities. Here’s what the new data tell us about how North Carolina’s cities and towns have changed since the 2020 Census." Population Milestones. "Winston-Salem's population estimate for July 1, 2021, was 250,320, an increase of 877 or 0.4% since the 2020 Census. The next North Carolina municipality to pass a population milestone may be Wake Forest: at 49,657 residents in 2021 and fast growth since 2020, Wake Forest should surpass 50K in the 2022 estimates." "Of the state’s 551 municipalities, 337 or 61% had population gains since 2020. ... The fastest-growing municipalities were in the Triangle and Brunswick. Wendell (18.1%) and Zebulon (15.3%) towns, both in Wake County, were the two fastest-growing municipalities in the state. The next three fastest-growing municipalities—Navassa (11.2%), Leland (10.9%), Northwest (10.1%), and Calabash (8.6%)—were all in Brunswick County, the fastest growing county in the state. Angier (Harnett), Sandy Creek (Brunswick), Fuquay-Varina (Wake), and Clayton (Johnston) rounded out the top ten fastest-growing places." "The municipalities with the largest numeric increases were more concentrated in Charlotte and the Triangle. Charlotte City gained an estimated 5,168 residents, the largest increase statewide, followed by Apex (4,114) and Fuquay-Varina (2,584) in Wake, Leland (2,547) in Brunswick, and Concord (2,511) in Cabarrus." "The municipalities with the largest estimated population losses are spread across the state: Asheville (-472) had the largest estimated losses, followed by Jacksonville (-463). Both municipalities had estimated population gains during the past decade, so these estimates suggest potential changes in local growth patterns that may reflect impacts of the pandemic. Chapel Hill and Carrboro, similarly, had strong growth over the past decade but had estimated losses between 2020 and 2021 (-198 and -131, respectively, the 8th and 12th largest losses statewide)." One-fifth of NC's Population lives in 5 largest places. "Most of North Carolina’s incorporated places—409 or 74%--are small, containing fewer than 5,000 residents. Combined, these 409 places have just under 590,000 total residents or 6% of NC’s population. In contrast, the five largest places—Charlotte, Raleigh, Greensboro, Durham and Winston-Salem—each have a combined population of 2.2 million or 21% of the state’s population." "In total, 6.1 million or 58% of the state’s population lives in an incorporated place; 4.5 million or 42% lives in an unincorporated area."

  6. Today's CBJ "Charlotte 49ers to double Jerry Richardson Stadium capacity as part of $100 Million Athletics growth plan" by Erik Spanberg Excerpt: "The Charlotte 49ers plan to double the seating capacity at the school’s on-campus football stadium as part of a long-term facilities plan released Tuesday afternoon. The initial phase, including expansion of Jerry Richardson Stadium and building a combination soccer-lacrosse stadium, will cost $102 million and depend entirely on private fundraising to pay for the projects. UNC Charlotte shared details today on proposed athletics facilities upgrades and expansions, along with some new venues, as part of what is billed as the EverGreen Athletics Facilities Master Vision. Kansas City sports design firm HOK and locally based Jenkins Peer Architects assembled the long-term blueprint for the school. The target for completing the multi-phase plan is 12 to 15 years." "Plans call for: "•Expanding the football stadium — current capacity: 15,300 — to more than 30,000 seats as part of a two-stage process. The first stage will add a tower on the site of the existing press box that includes 2,062 general admission seats, and 1,050 premium seats in a combinations of loge boxes, suites, and club seats as well as an outdoor terrace and mezzanine club. At or around the same time, 2,754 general admission seats will be added on the opposite side. That will push total capacity to 21,180. The next step will add 9,500 general admission seats, extending the second level of seating and increasing capacity to 30,680. Cost: $81.3 million." "•Adding a new baseball clubhouse with locker rooms, coaches’ offices, training areas, and a direct connection to the baseball stadium home dugout. It will include a roof-top terrace for fans to watch games. It will be built on the right-field line between the grandstand and indoor baseball facility. The existing fieldhouse will become home to the new women's lacrosse team which begins play in 2024-25. Cost: $6.975 million." "•Building a 2,000-capacity stadium to house the men’s and women’s soccer teams as well as the women’s lacrosse team. The soccer teams now play at the Irwin Belk Track and Field Center, where the running track encircling the soccer field distances fans from the action. Until the soccer-lacrosse stadium is completed, the lacrosse team will play home games at the football stadium. Cost: $6.825 million." "•Constructing a softball clubhouse with locker rooms, team meeting space, coaches’ offices, and a training room. The existing softball fieldhouse will be used to house future expansion of women’s sports. Cost: $3.25 million." "•Replacing the men’s and women’s basketball locker rooms at Halton Arena with player lounges and meeting space. Cost: $2.6 million." "The UNC Charlotte expansion of Jerry Richardson Stadium will be done in two phases. The finished project will take seating capacity to 30,680 at a total cost of $81.3 million."

  8. A portion of yesterday's and this morning's "Charlotte Talks" program on WFAE 90.7 FM discussed the stalemate at the Panthers new HQ and training facility in Rock Hill. One of the guests, Seema Iyer, chief legal correspondent with WJZY Queen City News, said that she had reviewed the contract which provides for emergency dispute arbitration. Ms. Iyer suggested that a Judge may have issued a Gag Order while negotiations are underway in the private arbitration process, and this would enjoin the parties from discussing the matter. If a Gag Order has been issued, that may explain the reason that Tepper & Tepper Sports and Entertainment have remained silent. Most of the withering commentary, recently reported in the media, has been made by state and local politicians who are not parties to the contract and thus not bound by a Gag Order.

  9. Yesterday, the U.S. Census Bureau (CB) released population estimates for Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and Combined Statistical Areas (CSAs) as of 07/01/2021. Below are the CB's pop. est. for the Triangle's leading cities, Raleigh and Durham, as well as 2 of their peer cities, Charlotte and Nashville, for comparison. Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) Raleigh-Cary MSA = 1,448,411 Rank: 41 Durham-Chapel Hill MSA = 654,012 Rank: 92 Charlotte-Concord-G'ville MSA = 2,701,046 Rank: 22 Nashville-Davidson-M'boro MSA = 2,012,476 Rank: 35 Combined Statistical Areas (CSA) Raleigh-Durham-Cary, NC CSA = 2,144,608 Rank: 31 Charlotte-Concord, NC-SC CSA = 2,864,830 Rank: 21 Nashville-D'vidson-M'boro, TN CSA = 2,143,407 Rank: 32 Notes: MSAs are required to have an employment/commuter interchange of 25%+ among the component counties, while CSAs must have an employment/commuter interchange of between 15% - 25%. CSAs are automatically designated for adjacent areas with an employment/commuter interchange of 25% or more. In adjacent areas with an employment/commuter interchange of at least 15% but less than 25%, the designation of combined statistical areas is based on local opinion, as expressed through the Congressional delegations.

  11. Today's CBJ "Charlotte Metro Area adds 31K-plus people last year," by Jena Martin Excerpts; "The Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia metropolitan statistical area grew by about 31,381 people between July 1, 2020 and 2021 to reach more than 2.7 million residents, according to the latest round of population estimates released this morning by the U.S. Census Bureau. That was the ninth-highest numeric increase of U.S. metro areas over the year period. And it just edged out the addition of 28,186 people in the Raleigh-Cary area, which had the 10th-highest increase to result in an estimated population count of about 1.45 million. The Durham-Chapel Hill metro increased by an estimated 2,820 people to reach a population of about 654,012. The Greensboro-High Point area's population rose by 2,087 residents to come in at about 778,848 residents. And the Winston-Salem metro picked up 5,069 residents to reach 681,438 people. On the western edge of the region, the Hickory-Lenoir-Morganton metro area saw about 1,206 people added to reach a population of 366,441." "The Charlotte metro's estimated population from 2020 to 2021 increased at a rate of 1.2%, which was 70th highest of its U.S. counterparts. In terms of counties, Mecklenburg's population over the year increased by 0.4% — nearly 4,000 people — to about 1.12 million, the bureau's estimates show. Mecklenburg has the second-highest total population in the state, trailing Wake County's 1.15 million residents. Wake added 16,651 residents over the year, more than any other county in the state." "The Charlotte metro area's population growth was fueled by counties like Lancaster in South Carolina, which hit a milestone by reaching 100,000 residents in 2021. It should be noted that, although not a part of the local metro, Cleveland County — about 40 miles west of Charlotte — passed that same threshold, notching an estimated population count of 100,359. Lancaster County logged the highest year-over-year growth rate of counties included in the local metro, at 3.8%. That was followed by Lincoln County in the northwest part of the region, with a 2.8% population increase, and Iredell County, with a 2.3% increase. Just one county in the Charlotte metro had a decrease in population last year. Chester County lost about 67 residents — a 0.2% drop."
