​​​​​​​BUDA - There is simply no city in the Austin area growing as fast as Buda.​ 

​Over the past five years, Buda has grown an astounding 81.4 percent, rising from a population of 7,556 in 2010 with the addition of 6,149 new residents.

The U.S. Census announced Georgetown to be the nation' fastest-growing city with more than 50,000 residents.

Austin Business Journal's analysis of those numbers also highlighted Leander's growth as the fastest in the region with a population of more than 25,000.

But when you include all of Austin's cities, no one can hold a candle to Buda. ​The Hays County city's population rose by 19.8 percent between 2014-2015 to 13,705 with the addition of 2,263​​ residents, according to the Census.

Austin, in contrast, grew by about 2 percent during that time and Georgetown's population spiked 8 percent.​​​​​
