So the Census data is out. It’s always fun to see if the numbers match up with real-world experience. That’s something we’re going to watch the first half of 2011. I do know that when we bought our house in mid-2010, there were 6 homes for sale on the street (including ours). Today there are none. They all have new families in them. So where are all of us new Bluff Park-ers coming from?
We came from Birmingham-proper. So we certainly support the new Census data, of Birmingham losing folks and surrounding areas showing big gains. Not sure about every one else.
Here are the Hoover Highlights of the Census:
- Hoover was the 2nd fastest growing city (by sheer bodies)
- Hoover added 18,877 new Hoover-ites
- Hoover readched a population of 81,619
- That’s a 30% growth trend over the last ten years.
Pretty interesting stuff. Now I’m going to dig around on the interwebs and see if I can boil the numbers down to just Bluff Park. If not, we may just do or own Bluff Park census. So if someone with a clip board going door to door, it’s just us wanting to do a nerdy blog post.
Have a good weekend!
Bluff Park’s Bob and Barbara have busted up into the blogosphere! Bob’s strategic sign placement around the neighborhood caught the eye of BirminghamMom.com.

It sure is pretty when it snows a lot at night like this. I just wish pretty didn’t have to equal cold.
