Houston’s Growth Brings Potential and Problems


The most recent census estimates tell us what those who live in the Houston area already know. The city is growing. In fact, the population grew last year more than any other region in the country. This draw that Houston apparently has to individuals looking to relocate and grow their families reflects a larger trend, as Texas’ population grew last year more than any other state in our country. With a booming economy and the jobs that go with it as well as a cost of living that is not as steep as other large metropolitan areas, the city of Houston and the state of Texas are an appealing place to call home.

With new faces comes exciting possibilities. New businesses will open and more ideas in science and arts and industry will be birthed as minds come together. But, the possible growth also has the potential to create or exacerbate certain problems. Roads are more congested, lending themselves to more car accidents and angry drivers. People from different regions and backgrounds are working side by side, which brings, unfortunately, more frequent misunderstandings. Maybe someone moves to the area for employment in the oil industry and gets injured during the physically grueling work.
