The southside community is expected to be the second fasting-growing county in metro Atlanta during the period behind Forsyth County. To reach that population between today and mid-century, Henry will add 152,000 people, the ARC said.
With that will come several demographic changes. The white population, which made up 46 percent of Henry residents in 2015, will dwindle to about 17 percent in 2050. The county’s hispanic population, however, will double at that time to about 15 percent on Henry Countians.
