[ARCHIVED] Wellington Ranks Among Fortune's 50 Best Places to Live for Families

Wellington ranks as Fortune Top 50 Places to Live

Wellington is proud to announce its inclusion in Fortune's esteemed list of the 50 Best Places to Live for Families. The Village has secured its position as one of the top 10 cities, coming in at an impressive number 8. This recognition highlights the exceptional support systems and quality of life that our community provides to its residents.

Fortune conducted an extensive evaluation, considering nearly 1,900 cities, towns, suburbs, exurbs, villages, and townships across all 50 states. Their rigorous assessment examined more than 200,000 unique data points, focusing on five key categories: Education, Aging resources, General wellness, Financial health, and Livability. The evaluation sought to identify places that offer high-quality amenities while fostering a strong sense of community.

“Wellington's success in this ranking is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team. By continuously delivering best-in-class services, we have made Wellington a great hometown that meets the diverse needs of our residents, said Village Manager, Jim Barnes.” “We extend our sincere gratitude to everyone involved for their vision and commitment to making Wellington a community of choice for all.”

Fortune specifically emphasized the challenges faced by multigenerational families, who often juggle the responsibilities of raising children while caring for aging parents. The ranking took into account factors such as the quality of local public schools, graduation rates, affordability of nearby colleges, availability of nursing homes, assisted living communities, home health care agencies, risk of social isolation among older residents, and access to top-notch healthcare providers.

Affordability was another crucial consideration. Wellington emerged as a place where residents can purchase homes without breaking the bank, as Fortune excluded locations with home sale prices exceeding twice the state median and/or 2.75 times the national median.

Furthermore, Fortune recognized the importance of diverse neighborhoods and incorporated factors such as racial, socioeconomic, religious, and ethnic diversity into the evaluation process. Wellington's vibrant and inclusive community reflects the richness of its diverse population.
