West Chester named top place to live in Ohio
Number 38 in the U.S.A and Number 1 in the State of Ohio. Money Magazine released a new list today naming the “Best Places to Live in Every State” and West Chester topped the list for Ohio.
Money Magazine calls West Chester “a quintessential family community—and an affordable one.”
West Chester has ranked in Money Magazine’s top 100 communities across the country seven times, including the No. 38 spot in 2018. The magazine, a publication of Time, Inc., narrows the field of eligible communities based on independent data collection and then gathers more subjective information from a visit to the community and interviews with residents. West Chester was the only Ohio community to make the national list in 2018.
West Chester was first named to the Money Magazine Best Places to Live in America list in 2005 and has been included in the top 100 on the six most recent lists – 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016, 2017 and 2018.
“Money Magazine highlights the demographics that make West Chester such a wonderful place to live, but those who live here know the story runs even deeper,” said Larry D. Burks, Township Administrator. “More than 60,000 residents and 3,500 businesses give West Chester a unique point of view as a vibrant community with great heart.”
