Janesville and Beloit record population growth
Assistant Beloit City Manager, Steve Gregg, says the latest figures puts Beloit's population at 37,110. Gregg says Beloit has seen moderate growth of 3.7% since 2000, and they're happy with that.
In Janesville, the number is higher. Manager of Planning and Services for Janesville, Duane Cherek, says growth is 5.5%, which represents an estimated population of 63,540. That is also considered "moderate growth", according to Cherek, and right where Janesville wants to be.
