Wellington has been named one of the “Best Cities to Live in Florida” for 2019 in a recent report by ChamberofCommerce.org.
The web site examined a total of 2,509 communities with populations above 25,000 and enough data for analysis and ranked the 100 best across Florida. Rankings were based on five factors: employment (number of establishments, median earnings); housing (owner-occupied housing with a mortgage, monthly housing costs); quality of life (work commute, poverty levels); education (percentage with a bachelor’s degree or higher); and health (obesity ratios). Wellington ranked 23 on the list, which can be viewed at www.chamberofcommerce.org/best-cities-to-live-in-florida.
“Receiving this recognition is an acknowledgment of long-term and intentional decisions by our Wellington Village Council members, superior execution by our staff and the realization that Wellington is a great hometown,” Village Manager Paul Schofield said
