The population of Remington has surpassed 500,000! As of October 19, 2006, the population of the region was 508,028. Much of this growth comes from massive growth in the far southern suburbs. The Remington Area Census Bureau will be releasing a census with data from each municipality soon.
There are several announcements along with this update:
1. The RDOT (Remington Department of Transportation) has announced a large expansion of the region's public transit, TRex or Transportation Expansion, which is centered around the creation of MetroRail, a regional heavy rail system. Also, an eastward extension of Highway 12 eastward to Highway 25 is in the process of feasibility studies at this time.
2. A new development, Paradise Island, is being constructed on an island in Hartsfield Bay. It should house around 1,000 residents at the most, but is planned to include very expensive and expansive homes.
3. The City of Remington will be undergoing a major redevelopment project to be conducted in conjunction with TRex. More details will be coming soon.
Sorry for the short update... the regional census should be released sometime within the next two or three days.
