All CT Cities Seeing Population Increases

This is definitely an encouraging read and also provides more fuel to the argument that transit will help boost our urban cores. Hopefully our state can really start to become a place that young people consider moving to instead of away from.

Wall Street Journal

The population grew by nearly 5% in both New Haven and Stamford and by 3.4% in Bridgeport, the first gain that city has seen since 1950. The state's capital, Hartford, grew by 2.6% over the past decade. Hartford has posted growth in only one other census since 1960. It lost more than a tenth of its residents between 1990 and 2000.

In addition, cities and towns with Amtrak or commuter-rail stations received 34% of the state's overall population growth. They attracted 33% of the state's new housing, about twice their growth share experienced between 1990 and 2000, the report showed.
