CENSUS: Brunswick Co. growth slowing


BRUNSWICK CO., NC (GREATER WILMINGTON BUSINESS JOURNAL) -- Brunswick County’s growth is showing signs of slowing, according to new population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau.

New population estimates clocked the county’s growth between April 2010 and July 2011 at 2.5 percent, making Brunswick County the 93rd fastest growing county in the nation — that’s down from 65th in 2009.

The county’s spot in the list of 100 fastest growing counties in the nation has continued to slide since 2006 when it was the 14th fastest growing county in the nation. In 2007, it was the 17th fastest and in 2008 it was ranked No. 28.

brunswick growth declining

with tax evaluations elevated well above actual market prices I can see this growth stopping. The tax review board in Bolivia changes no property valuations even though proper comparisions using the countys GIS and realtors sales in area are presented. The property should be valued at market price not just what an assessor claims the value should be. The tax administrator was terminated because of this practice in 2006. This new tax administrator should also share that fate.
