Who is moving to Austin, and where are they coming from?
“We’re in Austin, not California.”
“Must be the influence of Californians.”
“We’re full. Go back to California.”
Those are phrases you hear quite often around Austin these days. It’s completely understandable to loathe the rapid population growth in Austin, considering that Austin has been the fastest-growing large city in America. But it’s also completely inaccurate to blame the growth on our friends out west.
