Lubbock Is Growing

While many cities and counties in West Texas lost population over the past decade, Lubbock actually increased it’s population. That isn’t a shock to anyone out here, but some officials are surprised by just how much Lubbock increased.

The city’s 2010 Census count is 229,573 people, a 15% increase over the 2000 Census. That’s about 30,000 more people that live in the city of Lubbock since 2000. Lubbock County grew by about 14.9% which means the total population in the entire county is 278,831 residents.

So why the strong growth? Pretty simple, just look around. Texas Tech, LCU, SPC, and Wayland are all thriving right now and seeing higher enrollment numbers. Lubbock also has a fantastic medical community that you just won’t see until you get to DFW or Albuquerque. It’s also fairly cheap to live in and around Lubbock, though it does cost more every year. We’ve also seen major businesses set up shop in Lubbock. Add all of that up, plus the relaxed style that Lubbock has (no traffic) and you’ve got a great recipe for growth.

Lubbock has been growing and just about everyone I know can see it. I’ve seen so much growth since I got here in 2001 and I for one am happy to see it. We’ve seen new restaurants, night life, apartments, homes, and other businesses pop up all over the city.

Lubbock is a great place to live and I’m sure we will see continued growth in the future.
