Citychild,

Please be careful.

I would hate for you to get your father in trouble for printing his private documents on the internet.

We are glad that you are here and welcome your participation, but I would suggest asking your dad before you leak that information.

Someone didn't forget Poquoson! :yahoo: And included Williamsburg... so that'd be 9 cities, although one could drive through 8 without going into a county.

Living in Tabb, I'm about a mile or less from Poquoson. All of the counties and cities that make up the Hampton Roads metro are listed so not all the credit belongs to me.

What is your obsession with Poquoson?

Because it's a forgotten city in Hampton Roads. I remember when I first discovered it. I have yet to go there, but I had no idea there was another city. I don't like to ignore places or let the wrong info keep going. I also let people in Richmond know that Church Hill is not the entire east end of the city. It's about the truth.

Well... don't bother with Poquoson. I prefer to call it "some gas station with a few diners and a Food Lion half-way between the state line and Richmond". That's pretty much it.

In all the years I lived in Hampton Roads I never once went to Poquoson. Is it a nice town with a downtown or "Main Street?"

Poquoson use to be a small sleepy residential town. They are so small that they share courts and police with york county. There is no real main street in poquoson. Like you would expect to see in most small towns. Poquoson's main street literally consists of three shopping centers across from each other and then the rest is all residential. Poquoson use to be know for the good ole boys (redneck for those who arn't offended by this) however, with shipyard and nasa scientist building homes, that image is slowly being changed. Shacks are giving way to 400,000 to million dollar homes and traffic has become a nightmare, because it is basically only two ways in to poquoson. One would be vicotry blvd., and the other a smaller road that takes you to Nasa Langley. Poquoson is not urban and probably will never be. They are content being a sleep backwoods town that nobody knows of.

Poquoson(sp) has a main drag. There is a McDonalds and a Post Office on it. We used to go over there for lunch sometimes when I used to work at NASA Langley.

In terms of population, I wonder why there is an increase. Is it due to the spending by the gov't on programs like DHS, and expansion of things like JFCOM in Suffolk? Eventually a responsible president will take office and say "Hey, 70% of the worlds debt is us. We need to cut back on Military spending" and cut some of the fat, taking out some of the better paying jobs in HR.

Or is much of this expansion people who saw huge appreciation in bubbly housing markets, and decided to do the right thing and cash out, moving to our cheaper market, picking up a nice McMansion and a few expensive cars?

I work for a small company that moved to Hampton Roads. So far the impression I get is those that have moved here to work for the company aren't that happy with the region. Also, they seem to claim to be unable to find local talent, having to bring almost everyone in from other areas. The truth is, I've referred them locals that would be a good fit for the company, but they do not seem willing to hire much from the local talent pool.

The growth in HR is actually pretty small. It's probably largely due to births to people who are already here. The Pilot ran an article when the 2000 census figures were released saying that overall population growth was slower than the region's birth rate. That meant the area was not attracting new residents, rather people were leaving, but the number of births made up for it. I don't know if that's the case anymore, but this area isn't seeing nearly the type of growth most southern and western regions are experiencing.
