PTC gets national accolade: best place to raise kids
Peachtree City has been named one of the 50 “best places to raise kids” in the United States by Bloomberg Businessweek.
Although residents are well-versed in the myriad of recreational offerings available for the younger set, Bloomberg was concerned with public school performance, safety, housing costs, commute time and other factors including the percentage of households with children, adult educational attainment and diversity.
Median income and unemployment factored in too, and the result of all that data crunching put Peachtree City in the top 50 among some 3,200 cities from 5,000 to 50,000 in population from across the nation.
The online blurb of course offers the de rigeur nod to the heart of Peachtree City: its cart path system. But it also notes that the city boasts the “artificial” Lake Peachtree and also the fact that the city was named a “Tree City USA” by the Arbor Day Foundation.
Considering that the city is Georgia’s only representative on the list (one city was chosen from each state), it bodes well to help promote what is arguably the crown jewel of the southside metro Atlanta area. Especially in a time in which the economy is beginning to pick back up, as have visits from corporations considering moving here.
