UA Named One of the Best Towns for Families

Family Circle Magazine has listed Upper Arlington, Ohio as one of its “10 Best Towns for Families for 2013.” Read the article here.

From the FamilyCircle.com web site: “With the help of Onboard Informatics, a New York City research firm that provides real estate, demographic and other data, Family Circle initially assembled a list of 3,335 cities and towns with populations between 10,000 and 150,000. From that, nearly 1,000 localities having a high concentration of households with median incomes between $55,000 and $100,000 were selected. We then assessed which places best met our family-friendly criteria—including affordable homes, quality schools, access to health care, green space, low crime rate and financial stability—and ranked them from top to bottom.”

Wendy Hinton Gomez ’87 was quoted in the article, praising Upper Arlington’s many family offerings and the the importance that UA traditions play in making this one of the most attractive communities in the nation.
