The Seattle metropolitan area has more than 3.6 million inhabitants making the metropolitan area. The significant growth of the city’s population has negatively affected how the city settles its residents. In 2006, after the city grew by more than 4000 residents per year, the Seattle regional planners thought of expanding the city to accommodate the increasing population (Singh, 28).
The City of Seattle, which is a Historical Core Municipality, grew 8.0 percent from 564,000 in 2000 to 609,000 by 2010. This means that the area experienced a healthy increase. The modern-day Seattle is completely different from the historical Seattle. The expansion of the city and the population in the metropolitan area has been intense (Singh, 45). Currently, Seattle city now constitutes to less than 15% when it comes to the metropolitan region population. In 1950, Seattle city had almost two-thirds of King County population and by 2010, the city was less than a third of the population in King County. While the city has continued to reduce in terms of the region’s population, the downtown region is losing its impressive dominance. By 2009, the area had fallen to 8% in terms of the region’s employment (Diers, 32).
The inner suburbs thus the areas that are outside the Seattle city account for almost 90 percent in terms of growth. Inner suburbs in the metropolitan region include the Eastern, southern and the northern part of the King County. These regions experienced 50% of growth thus 1,170,000 to almost 1,320,000. At least 150,000 new residents resided in the area. On the other hand, the outer suburbs areas, which include the Snohomish and the Pierce County, grew 15.4 percent thus nearly double Seattle growth. Alternatively, the exurban areas growth rates almost resembled the outer suburbs growth whereby the population of these areas grew by almost 15 percent (Singh, 76). Most of the urban and population growth in the Seattle region is associated with the need for people to have jobs and a better life.
