In fact, it was featured by Forbes in 2014 as one of the “Top 100 Best Small Cities for Business and Careers”. It makes for a wonderful place to set up roots, raise a family or even retire to. It stands out as a city that focuses of efficient service delivery which led to it being awarded the prestigious Gabe Zimmerman Award for Public Service.
What about residency? It is a great time to buy in this city. U.S. News and World Report featured it among the “Top 50 Affordable Places to Buy a Retirement Home”. Many other independent and reputable experts and organizations agree on this. Folks can thus acquire beautifully and conceptually built homes for reasonable prices.
