Johnson County remains one of the fastest-growing counties in central Indiana, which is bringing more places to shop and a better market to sell your home.
The county’s population is 145,535, according to the 2013 estimate from the U.S. Census Bureau. That compares with 139,654 reported in the 2010 Census.
That 4.2 percent increase over the past three years puts a little more stress on local police to handle emergency calls and schools to find class space for students, and local streets may wear down quicker with added traffic. But with more people coming into the county, homes are becoming easier to sell and new retail stores are opening.
