Scott tops county growth

Associated Press

LEXINGTON - Scott County is the fastest growing county in Kentucky, according to projections by the U.S. Census Bureau. Scott County's population grew by 2 percent between July 1, 2012, and July 1, 2013.

Missy Winchell, a Scott County real estate agent, attributed the growth in part to Toyota's plans to build Lexus sedans at its Georgetown plant in 2015.

"We're seeing a lot of relocating auto-industry workers," Winchell said. She also said the county gets a lot of retirees. And she noted that Scott is conveniently located off both Interstate 75 and Interstate 64.

The census estimates were developed using the 2010 federal census as a baseline. Population change each year was calculated using births, deaths, administrative records and survey data. According to estimates, Oldham was the second fastest growing county, with a 1.6 percent population increase. Shelby and Montgomery were next, each with a 1.4 percent growth rate, followed by Bath with a 1.3 percent rate.

Finishing the top 10 were Simpson, Bullitt, Warren, Jessamine and Spencer counties.

All of the fastest-growing counties benefit from their proximity to large cities. Eight are on interstates.
