Between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016, the Naples-Immokalee-Marco Island area added 8,566 residents and grew 2.4 percent in population to 365,136. That tied the area with Port St. Lucie at eighth among the fastest-growing metro areas in the state and 17th in the nation, according to census data.
By 2040 the county’s population is expected to reach more than 482,000.
