On Monday, September 15th, Livability.com announced that Madison has been named the number one most livable city in America! I was joined by Matt Carmichael of Livability.com, Alder Skidmore, Alder Demarb, and Alder Subeck to accept the award. The folks at Livability, along with the research team at the Martin Prosperity Institute, looked at several factors including a city's economics, housing, amenities, infrastructure, demographics, social and civic capital, education and health care.
From number five last year to number one this year, it is clear that we have a come a long way in Madison. I am proud of our success, but our work is not yet done. We must continue to focus on ways to keep making Madison the great place it is!
