Spokane, Coeur d'Alene Will Be Combined Metro Area
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The Spokane metropolitan area is about to become a lot bigger.
Spokane and adjacent Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, will be combined into a single metropolitan area as a result of the 2010 Census. The Census Bureau said it will be called Spokane-Coeur d'Alene.
As a result of adding the 138,000 residents of Kootenai County, Idaho, to the 471,000 residents of Spokane County, the new metro area will have 609,000 people.
That will place it 87th among the nation's metro areas, just ahead of Lakeland, Fla. and just behind Boise, Idaho. The statistical change will not occur until 2013.
