Westfield named one of the ‘Best Cities in Indiana’ to raise a family

The Consumer Advocacy site, NerdWallet, released its annual study, “Best Cities for Young Families in Indiana” and ranked Westfield No. 2 out of the state’s 109 cities that the company researched.

“Building a community and connecting families is my goal for Westfield,” stated Mayor Andy Cook. “Being recognized for something city employees and community members work so hard to achieve is rewarding on so many levels. Westfield’s trail system, school district and our sense of community is why families are locating to Westfield.”

The study revealed Westfield has the highest percentage of families with children in the state. It also pointed out the city’s close proximity to Indianapolis. NerdWallet analyzes cities with more than 5,000 residents in Indiana. The advocacy site takes into account U.S. Census data and considers home affordability, prosperity and growth, quality of education and family friendliness.
