SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - New estimates from the U.S. Census bureau report many Utah cities are growing and three cities are now large enough to be considered medium-sized by the bureau.

The census report shows that in 2013, the populations of Saratoga Springs, Washington City and Farmington each surpassed 20,000 people for the first time.

That means they’re now considered medium-sized cities.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1t71Q09) the populations of South Jordan, Lehi and Kearns each grew by more than 2,000 residents in 2013 from the year before.

Nine other cities added more than 1,000 residents in 2013.

They include West Jordan, Salt Lake City, Saratoga Springs, Sandy, West Valley City, Herriman, St. George, Farmington and Layton.

Utah now has 37 cities and three unincorporated areas with populations greater than 20,000 people.
