Spring Hill's new population certified at 40,436

Census Results

The results of the City of Spring Hill’s latest special census have been certified by the State verifying Spring Hill has gained 3,906 residents within the past two years since the last special census.

The 2018 Spring Hill Special Census was conducted between Oct. 1, 2017, and Feb. 28, 2018, and collected residents’ names and addresses. The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development’s (TDECD) recent certification of the official population of Spring Hill now stands at 40,436, a 10.7 percent increase from the 36,530 residents certified in 2016.

The City of Spring Hill would like to thank each and every resident who participated for recognizing the importance of responding to the special census to verify our new population. The higher population truly benefits every resident as the state returns to cities five types of state-shared revenues, totaling $131.95 per resident. Those revenues include $83 in State-Shared Sales Tax, $0.50 in State Beer Tax, $2.05 in Streets & Transportation Revenue, $11.40 in TVA in lieu-of-taxes, and $35 in State Street Aid (gasoline & motor fuel taxes).

The City of Spring Hill Special Census, conducted by Dempsey, Dilling & Associates, was done at a taxpayer cost of about $157,000 in the 2017-18 fiscal year. The additional residents counted will result in $515,397 in new State-shared revenue to the City of Spring Hill, an annual return on investment more than three times the cost of the census.

“We were pleasantly surprised with the 2018 special census results, which came in just above our initial estimates,” said Assistant City Administrator Chuck Downham.

“When we started the special census in 2017, we projected our new population would be about 40,000, based on housing permits and utility hookups in recent years. Our City will put these funds to good use tackling the many pressing needs that come with this uniquely high level of growth.”

The additional funds will augment City revenues that provide much needed services, such as police, fire protection, library services, utilities, and expansion of our roads and parks, in response to the continuous growth.

“Spring Hill has continued to attract and retain new residents who are looking for an affordable diversity of homes near top-ranked schools, and a high quality of life,” Mayor Rick Graham said. “As Spring Hill transitions from being less of a bedroom community, as we attract more good-paying jobs, we expect the population of our great city will continue to rise as people want to be able to live where they work.”
