This past Monday morning we were pleased to learn that we had earned the ranking of the #2 Best Place to Live in America according to MONEY magazine for 2016. They released their Top 50 Best Places to Live for cities with populations of more than 50,000 — which is something they have done every other year.
You may recall that we were ranked #1 in 2010 and then #3 in 2012. This newest designation means that we have occupied all top 3 places within the last six years.
We are very proud of these rankings and attribute it to all those who live and work in Eden Prairie.
Here is the video from the Tuesday evening City Council meeting where we discuss how the rankings work, including the rationale by MONEY magazine for our #2 ranking:
