St. Lucie County is the 44th fastest growing county in America
based on percent of growth between January 2000 and July 2006
for all counties that began the period with more than ten thousand inhabitants, according to recent U.S. Census Bureau
St. Lucie County which was established in 1844, grew in

marked the beginning of the 21st Century, the county increased
the number of inhabitants by 31.2 percent bringing the
