Wellington has been named one of the Best Cities to Live in Florida for 2019 in a recent report by ChamberofCommerce.org.

The website examined a total of 2,509 qualified cities (those with populations above 25,000 and enough data for analysis) and ranked the 100 best cities across Florida. Rankings were based on five factors: employment (number of establishments, median earnings); housing (owner-occupied housing with a mortgage, monthly housing costs); quality of life (work commute, poverty levels); education (percentage with a bachelor’s degree or higher); and health (obesity ratios). Wellington ranked 23 on the list, which may be viewed here: https://bit.ly/2FrncTk.

"Receiving this recognition is an acknowledgment of long-term and intentional decisions by our Village Council members, superior execution by our staff and the realization that Wellington is a Great Hometown," Paul Schofield, Wellington Village Manager.
