Hall County’s population will grow by 64 percent to a little more than 328,000 by 2040, according to a forecast by the Atlanta Regional Commission released Thursday.
That would be an additional 127,000 residents for Hall County.
The regional planning agency predicts more than 80,000 of those new residents will be Hispanic, which would make Hall’s population 42 percent Hispanic, a jump from 28 percent in 2015.
ARC also forecasts the age 65 and older population to grow to 17 percent from 13 percent.
Also, ARC expects 38,650 additional jobs for a growth rate of 41 percent.
The ARC is “the regional planning and intergovernmental coordination agency for the 10-county area including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry and Rockdale counties, as well as the City of Atlanta,” according to its website.
