Rankings Emphasize Livability in Small and Mid-Size Cities
Santa Fe has been named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of 10 Great Places to Live for 2013. The rankings considered metro areas with a population of one million or less that have good jobs, reasonably priced homes, decent schools and access to great health care. The rankings appear in Kiplinger’s September 2013 issue—on newsstands August 6, 2013—and available online.
“This is a wonderful recognition of the many incredible assets we have in Santa Fe. Our quality of life is deeply connected to our economy. The investments we have made as a community in things like parks, trails and in creating good jobs have enhanced that. I’m proud of the values that have made Santa Fe one of the best places in the country,” said Mayor David Coss.
“Each year we take a look at America’s cities and choose those that stand out in a particular category—say, for raising a family, starting out after college or enjoying retirement,” says Janet Bodnar, Editor of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. “The cities in this year’s rankings have a manageable size combined with a wide range of benefits that allow residents to enjoy a convenient and comfortable lifestyle.”
