Belmont’s Population Continues to Rise

Take a look at Belmont’s growth in the last three years.

Belmont’s population increased by 2 percent between 2010 and 2013, according to new U.S. Census data released this week.

Belmont had 24,761 residents in 2010 and that number rose 571 to 25,332 in 2013.

The 2 percent figure for Belmont is higher than the 1 percent median growth rate among Massachusetts communities that was reported by the Boston Business Journal but well below the 10 percent population increase in Cohasset, which saw the most growth in the state.

Communities near Belmont also saw an influx of residents: Lexington 4 percent increase, Arlington 3 percent, Watertown 3 percent, Cambridge 2 percent and Waltham 2 percent.

This is hardly a surprise. 'Build itr and they will come" Projects such as Wellington, and now the Underwood Pool boondoggle, attracts people with kids. And virtually EVERY one of those families are a NET TAX LOSS to the Town. EVERY single one of them will never pay as much in taxes as they consume in Town services. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Progressive Democrat town politicians who promote such projects are destroying Belmont's fiscal stability.
