Census: Georgetown is fastest-growing city in U.S.

Georgetown is the fastest-growing city in the U.S. for cities with a population above 50,000, according to data released today by the U.S. Census Bureau. Georgetown’s growth rate was 10.5 percent from July 1, 2020, through July 1, 2021, resulting in a population estimate of 75,420.

“Georgetown continues to attract new residents for the same reasons many of us moved here — good jobs, safe neighborhoods, and unbeatable parks and events,” Mayor Josh Schroeder said. “But all those things may not be as important as the sense of community you feel when families gather on a Saturday afternoon on our Courthouse lawn or dance in the street at our annual Red Poppy Festival. People don’t just move here: They fall in love with this town.”
