Since the 1950s there has been a migration of people into the urban cities of the world. Urban populations continue to grow as people look for prosperity and improvements in their lives. With this urban growth there are certain challenges that cities must face as they expand and grow to accommodate more people. Austin Texas is now one of the fastest growing cities and metropolitan regions in the United States and is facing the challenges that are linked to its growth. The purpose of this research is to describe the attitudes and opinions of professional administrators about the challenges of future growth of Austin over the next ten years.

Purpose: Throughout the literature the challenges for growing cities is identified and the survey of Public Administration professional was developed from this framework.

Method: The findings show that the respondents were most concerned with the transportation issues that Austin faces along with housing challenges that are arising from the population growth. In addition to identifying the challenges that Austin faces in their opinions they were also to provide some suggestions that could be considered as Austin moves forward over the next ten years. These suggestions ranged from changing the building codes in housing to building more roads and mass transit in transportation.
