The City of Jackson has again gained statewide recognition. Earlier this year, Jackson was named the sixteenth safest city in Georgia, and this week Jackson made a list of the state’s best places to live.
Rent Application. com released its annual “Best Places in Georgia” report for 2016 this week. The list of the 46 best places to live in Georgia ranks the City of Jackson at 40th. Roswell, Georgia ranked # 1.
To compile the report, Rent combined data from the U. S. Census, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Education Rankings, Citizen Satisfaction ratings, Natural Language Analysis and their own research to create a ranking of the best places to live in Georgia. The data collected reflected census, education, wealth, happiness and internal systems of government.
According to their website, Rent is a real estate portal devoted to helping home owners, renters, and cities better understand their communities. The site is devoted to all things real estate. Their rankings and research have been seen on Fox News, UPI, USA Today and hundreds of local media outlets across the United States. Millions have viewed Rent rankings on their website.
“Ours is a bucolic town known for being “clean, green and safe,’ remarked Jackson Mayor Kay Pippin, ‘residents have easy access to local and regional jobs; home values, while still affordable, are inching up at an acceptable rate; unemployment rates are low; our schools are preparing a good workforce for the future; our streets are clean and safe; and natural resources including water and green spaces abound.”
“Our residents already know Jackson is a great place to live, but statewide and national recognition is absolutely thrilling,” stated Mayor Pippin.
