The City of Peachtree Corners takes pride in being included in this year’s edition of the Fortune 50 Best Places to Live for Families, ranking at an impressive #19 nationally and securing the top spot in Georgia.
A Place for Families
Fortune Magazine evaluated nearly 1,900 cities, towns, suburbs, exurbs, villages, and townships across all 50 states in the U.S. to compile this year’s list. The comprehensive process involved analyzing over 200,000 unique data points in categories such as education, aging resources, general wellness, financial health, and livability. The rankings specifically considered the challenges faced by multigenerational families, acknowledging the balancing act between raising children and caring for aging parents.
The evaluation took into account various factors to determine the best places for families to thrive. It considered the quality of local public schools, graduation rates, affordability of nearby colleges, availability of quality nursing homes, assisted living communities, and home health care agencies. The assessment also considered the risk of social isolation among older residents and the accessibility of reliable healthcare providers.
Acknowledging the Recognition
Mayor Mike Mason expressed gratitude for the recognition from Fortune Magazine and reiterated the city’s commitment to maintaining the excellent standards that have earned them this honor. The acknowledgment reinforces what the residents of Peachtree Corners have long known about their exceptional city.
Fortune also recognized the significance of diverse neighborhoods in their rankings. By comparing the racial breakdown of each place against state benchmarks, any location that demonstrated less than 75% diversity compared to the state medians was excluded. Socioeconomic, religious, and ethnic diversity were also considered during the data collection process.
A Thriving Community
City Manager Brian Johnson attributes the accolade to the unwavering dedication and hard work of the city’s exceptional employees. Their tireless efforts have transformed Peachtree Corners into a thriving community that families genuinely love.
