The following is an excerpt from the Greenville News on May 5, 2017

A Report released in May 2017 by the U.S. Census Bureau probably won't shock many who've watched the fast-paced development and influx of jobs in Greenville within the past decade.  

The city has been investing steadily in infrastructure, such as a new city park planned west of downtown, and has seen surpluses in tax revenues that will be set aside to accommodate further growth in population, he said.

The city's revitalization downtown has paid dividends in attracting people and development, whether it's renovation of homes in the North Main and Augusta Road neighborhoods, new homes slated for the massive development of the Verdae properties or the proliferation of luxury apartment growth in the West End.

The July 1, 2015, Census population estimate for Greenville was 64,579, a 9.2 percent jump from April 1, 2010, at just below 60,000. 

Ten of the 15 fastest-growing cities, with populations of 50,000 or more, were pinned across the South last year. Four of the top five were in Texas, with Conroe, near Houston, growing the fastest at 7.8 percent, the Census report showed. 

Meanwhile, a new analysis of the entire Upstate predicts that the region will welcome more than 300,000 new residents, reaching a total population of almost 1.75 million people by 2040, an increase of 64 percent since 1990 and bypassing growth forecast rates for the Charleston and Columbia areas.
