BusinessWeek magazine names Tinley Park
‘Best Place in America to Raise Kids’

Tinley Park has been named top winner on this year’s Best Places in America to Raise Kids list compiled by BusinessWeek magazine, a prestigious national honor announced annually on the publication’s Web site.

“Of course, we’ve known for years that our Village is a great place for families—a wonderful town in which to live, work, play and raise children—but it’s exciting that our Village is recognized now by a national and highly respected magazine that specializes in understanding what makes a place highly livable and special,” said Mayor Ed Zabrocki.

This is the fourth year that the publication has researched towns across the country, analyzing such factors as school performance, affordability, safety, cost of living, air quality, job growth, racial diversity and accessibility to local parks, ball fields, zoos, recreation centers, museums and theaters.

The selections were limited to towns that have at least 45,000 residents and a median income of between $40,000 and $125,000. Affordability, safety and school test scores were given the greatest weight. Based on top scores, an overall national winner is determined.

The researchers gave Tinley Park the highest scores for its “top-rated schools, low crime, beautiful parks, relatively affordable houses, and easy access to jobs,” according to the announcement posted Tuesday on the magazine’s Web site at http://tinyurl.com/yjg2nql. The announcement also noted Tinley Park’s “family-friendly atmosphere.”

“Honors like this one are always appreciated,” said Mayor Zabrocki, “but we don’t just rest on our laurels. We’re always looking for new ways to continue enhancing the quality of life for our residents.”
