Post Falls Leads Population Surge

Post Falls added 10,337 residents during the past decade and broke into the ranks of the state’s top 10 cities with 27,574 people, according to data released Thursday. Coeur d’Alene has 44,137 people, and the city of Hayden shot past the 10,000 population mark to reach 13,294. Spirit Lake also grew – adding 569 new residents – to 1,945.

Question: Will Post Falls catch up to Coeur d'Alene in population within 20 years?
