mpls: Back to the Population Future?

Story in the Downtown Journal about how, maybe, someday, in the future, Minneapolis will have as many people as it once had in the past...
The population of Minneapolis is growing at a significantly faster rate than earlier projections — planners now expect the city to swell above 466,000 residents by 2030, for an 18 percent increase over the last U.S. Census.

Downtown and Uptown are the growth leaders, accounting for much of the anticipated boom, although the Hiawatha Corridor also is expected to see significant development.

That's amazing, unless you consider the fact that the Twin Cities metro has tripled in size since 1940 . . .

More population + more development + higher property values= all positive things for the city of Minneapolis in the form of a reviving tax base. Bring it on!!!!!!!
