The State Department of Finance, yesterday, released new statistics that estimates California's population growth, and indiciates that Riverside County will more than double it's population by 2050, making it the State's second largest county.

Expect a lot of the new development in Riverside County to go up along the 215 Freeway between Perris and Murrieta, according to Riverside County Planning Director Ron Goldman.

The department is so busy that he's hiring 10 people who'll start in the next month.

Imagine what Menifee will look like 40 years from now.
