BELL COUNTY - Central Texas’ rapid growth shows no signs of slowing anytime soon, and Bell County is one of the top destinations for transplants.

With 849 new residents, Bell County was among the counties with the highest net inflows from out of state. Lee Peterson, president of the Temple Economic Development Corp., said that while the area may be going through some growing pains right now, the continued growth will have an overall positive effect.
