Boulder Still Growing

Niel Robertson passed on this article to me this morning, stating:

Only 13 out of 381 metropolitan areas are actually growing, he says. According to they are Boulder, Colo.; Lafayette and Louisiana, La.; Bethesda, Md.; Jacksonville, N.C.; Binghamton, N.Y.; Oklahoma City; Okla.; State College, Pa.; and Brownsville, El Paso, Laredo, McAllen, and San Antonio, Texas.

Even with the economic doom and gloom, Boulder still seems to be growing.

We are seeing the slowdown, there is no question of that, but as a whole, are weathering the storm better than most spots of the country.

    Louisiana, LA? I think a slip of the fingers. Was there another LA city?
