New population figure, growth trends suggest Spring Hill could pass Brentwood soon in size

The City of Spring Hill is now the 17th largest city in Tennessee by population size, having passed the West Tennessee City of Germantown, based on the 2018 Spring Hill Special Census that counted 40,436 residents.

And according to city Communications Director Jamie Page, based on current population trends, building permits issued, and new utility connections, Spring Hill is on track to potentially surpass Brentwood, pop. 43,889, by the 2020 U.S. Census.

Tennessee has 347 incorporated cities and towns. Of those, 57 currently have populations of 10,000 and above.

According to certified figures from the Center for Economic Research in Tennessee, Nolensville joined the 10,000 and above list after a 2017 special census showing 11,097 people, up from 7,936 in 2014.

Since announcing on June 29 the results of the 2018 special census, the TNECD Center for Economic Research in Tennessee released its annual certified population report in July. It shows that Spring Hill’s new population, with the addition of nearly 4,000 residents in the two years since the previous 2016 special census, passed Germantown, a Memphis suburb which has 40,123 residents.

For context, after the 2010 Federal Census, Spring Hill ranked 24th in population among all Tennessee municipalities. By the 2016 Special Census, when the population rose to 36,530, Spring Hill ranked 18th, at that time surpassing seven other cities – Columbia, Gallatin, Lebanon, LaVergne, Cookeville, Oak Ridge and Morristown.

Thompson’s Station grew from 2,681 in a 2013-14 census to 4,726 with a 2016-17 count.

Fairview went from 7,720 in the 2010 U.S. Census to 8,002 in a 2015-15 special census.
