San Jose's "Fast" Bay Area Growth

5 posts in this topic

"It's not a really rapid growth rate; it's not phenomenal - it's not like what's happening in Riverside County, or San Bernardino or Placer County - but it's fast for the Bay Area," Johnson said of Santa Clara County's growth.

San Jose's nearly 16,000 new residents in 2006 was nearly double the 8,745 new residents San Francisco added, and more than three times Oakland's 4,158 new residents, the finance department said.

Even as California's population growth has slowed this decade, San Jose's growth has accelerated, according to population estimates released Tuesday by the state Department of Finance. The city gained more people in the past two years than any two-year period this decade, reaching 973,672 residents, according to data through Jan. 1.

I think one thing we have to look at is the fact that San Francisco is less than 50 sq mi in area, but San Jose is about 180 sq mi.

Sacramento's rate of growth is probably greater than both of them.

Yeah, I've heard about the 'scrapers you guys are getting. Too bad San Jose can't build tall like that. Their skyline looks so boxy and unappealing.
