2020 census

PADUCAH (WSIL)---The 2020 Census says Paducah is growing.

It says in the last 10 years, Paducah has grown 8.4%. That means more than 2,000 people have moved into the area.

Mayor George Bray thinks it's a step toward the future.

"And so every year when you'd get that estimate, and it was only up a couple hundred or even down a couple hundred, you know, you'd wonder about it. But seeing the actual number makes us feel really good and it's really what we think of as a springboard to bigger and better things," said Bray.

Mayor Bray hopes the current projects Paducah is investing in will keep drawing people to the city.
