People seem to be moving to the Charlotte region in droves. Our growth has been nothing but short of explosive in the past decade. The Queen City ranked #2 among the country's 25 largest cities for population growth between 2010 and 2013. Of the top 10 fastest growing cities in North Carolina, Charlotte ranked #1 in growth from 2010-2015, increasing population by 12.4% during these five years. In fact, Charlotte added more residents in 2016 than all but 10 cities in the USA, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. This growth has also fueled significant growth in the Charlotte suburbs.
