Chart of the day: 2040 Growth Forecasts


In preparation for the Thrive MSP 2040, the update to the regional plan for the 7-county area, Met Council has released draft forecasts showing population, households and employment growth through 2040.  This is a map of the percentage change in population through 2040 in each city/township. Laketown Township is grey because the forecasts show zero population in 2040. I assume this means it will be fully annexed by then.
