The City of Grand Rapids has recorded a 40% growth in population between the 2000 and 2010 Census.  The population increase in the City of Grand Rapids is largely, but not entirely, attributable to the City's annexation of a majority of Grand Rapids Township, which was phased in during the last decade. The completion of the annexation process in 2010 tripled the geographic area of the City, creating new opportunities for expansion, and increased population, from approximately 7,700 in 2000 to 10,869 in 2010.  Nearby large job generating projects, such as the Essar Steel Minnesota Plant and Magnetation, are expected to further contribute to population growth in Grand Rapids.

Grand Rapids, the Itasca County seat, is the regional center of government, industry, health care, cultural and recreational activity and shopping.  The 2010 Census population of Itasca County was 45,058, an increase of 2.4% over 2000, one of a few Minnesota counties experiencing growth.
