Is Omaha's growth from people settling or is it from annexation?

Wow, Fremont lost people.  I assumed being next to a metro like Omaha would rub off a little bit on them and they would of seen growth.

They are filling in all the holes in the tattered western and northern city limit. This was for 2012.

The population of those neighborhoods annexed is 13,445 but the overall population increase for Omaha between 2010 and 2012 was only 12,612. That's not so good.

I am sure some are, but even their micro area lost people.  A little surprising.

Fremont losing population is more or less a sign of the times.. its hard for people to cough up 4$ gas to drive into the city only to avoid the Big City life. I wonder if its possible to look up how many of these people leaving are younger people. It would make sense for early 20 somethings to be moving to Omaha for the nightlife improvements over Fremont.

There is a sort of a push pull effect when two larger cities begin to approach each other. Call them spheres of influence if you will. Initially, the larger city will begin to pull jobs and people away from the smaller city, after all, why locate in the smaller city if a larger city is so close? Eventually, though, the smaller city will either transition into an edge city or a standard suburb. The same thing is currently happening with Boston and Providence, where Providence is losing people and businesses to the rapidly approaching Boston.

If it weren't for various annexation laws, I bet sometime in the next few decades that Omaha would try to absorb Fremont. Along with the rest of the state.

And speaking of annexation, I found this gem on Urbandictionary.com

A tumor on Nebraska's |expletive| that will eventually consume the state.
Omaha will soon annex Lincoln and then move on to Scotts Bluff. If you move away from Omaha , Omaha comes and gets you

Yeah, I talked with a family member that has a pretty good grasp on Fremont's happenings.  What I took from the conversation is that city is far to conservative, not politically, but just highly unwilling to change anything or try something new.  Fremont just joined the Greater Omaha Chamber, apparently that has been in the works for over two years and some Fremont officials didn't want to join because "they would just get Omaha's smoke stacks."  Like for some reason Fremont is too good for industrial jobs.  I also mentioned that the city is unwilling to put in any sewer extension east of 275 right now.  Basically reducing the highway we spent so much on as a bypass of the city instead of trying to use it as an asset.

Between the lakes, a downtown area with some potential, a quickly growing Midland University and the proximity to Omaha they have the bones to be a pretty solid option for people.  Hopefully they can buck the trend in the coming years.

Fremont is one of the stogiest communities of its size I have ever visited.  It is boring as heck.  I can't imagine anyone under 60 wanting to live there once they have seen the lights (and cultural opportunities) in a larger city, like Omaha.

Uh, maybe because Fremont is a 15 minute drive from Omaha?

And let's exercise a bit of perspective here. I could ask you, how could you live in a 'boring' city like Omaha, once you've seen the lights and cultural ammenities in a larger city like Chicago or New York? Heck, Kansas City makes Omaha look like a farm.

Not all of us desire to live within the city limits of Omaha, and trust me, we aren't missing a darn thing. People seem to have this misconception that because someone lives outside of the hustle and bustle of the city, that we're out here forging our own steel and milling our own grain, which is incredibly retarded.

Yeah even if the estimates are a little off, Nebraska is growing a lot faster than WV.  Looks like we will be 37th for a long times though, I can't see us catching New Mexico and the only state I possibly see jumping us eventually is Idaho and they are still ~250K behind.

School enrollment growth is about 2% a year in Omaha area school districts on the Nebraska side of the river.

Omaha 50,461 @ 1.1% growth per year
Elkhorn  6,276 @ 6.8% growth per year
Millard  23,075 @ 1.4% growth per year
PLV      10,415 @ 2.75% growth per year
Bellevue 9,726 @ 1.00% growth per year
Gretna   3,347 @ 6.5% growth per year
Benning 1,557 @ 11.0 growth per year


I imagine both Council Bluffs and area rural areas drop this growth rate but it cannot drop it to under 1.75% per year. Well, there's also the private schools. So assuming mere disaster in all other school districts, I guess the lowest metro-wide school enrollments could hit 1.5%[/url]

Restless America: state-to-state migration in 2012

Here's a fun chart to play with that shows the migration exchanges between states during 2012. Hover your cursor over each of the states and it'll show you how many people moved in and out. Put it over one of the links that pop up between states and it shows you those figures for each state. The chart's maker only drew links between states if there were over 10,000 people exchanged. In Nebraska's case, that was only Iowa.

The July 2013 State population numbers were released today. Nebraska maintained its slow, steady track of gaining just a bit more than 13,100 people in the past 12 months.

http://www.census.gov/popest/data/state ... 013-01.xls

Iowa gained a bit more than 15,000 during the same period.
