Population Doubles Since 2000, 2010 Census Shows
2011) The 2010 census counts were released for North Carolina
yesterday, and they show the 2010 census population of Steele Creek
at 52,014, up 106% from the 2000 census count of 25,282. Mecklenburg
County grew by 32% from 695,454 to 919,628, so Steele Creek has been
growing at a rate three times that of the county.
If Steele Creek were a city, it would be the 17th largest city in
the state, just behind Chapel Hill (57,233), and above Burlington
(49,963), Wilson (49,167), and Huntersville (46,733).
Steele Creek increased from 3.6% of the county's population to 5.7%.
New county commissioner and school board districts will redrawn
before the 2012 election to divide the county's population in 6
approximately equal parts. If Steele Creek remains in tact in one
district, it will make up 34% of that district.
