This town's getting too big

This is why I'm starting to get annoyed with Central Oregon's growth. The population in Bend in the last year gained nearly 9% -- up 5,150. So we're up to about 63,000. That amount of growth in one year is insane. Only one city in Oregon grew by more people: Portland went up 6,960, which is only a 1% increase for Portland. That's scary to me that the biggest city in the state is the only one to get more people. Percentage-wise, Central Oregon exploded with Redmond (8.3%) and Sisters (32.4% -- yes, you read that right) sitting on top of the charts as well. Full story.

But that PSU Study also showed that, while we gained nearly 7,000 in the major cities in Deschutes county, the county's population only went up by 4,000. Huh? Yes, it's a confusing mess, and, needless to say, the County and PSU are looking into the disparity.
