Meridian Idaho has been named America’s Best City To Live In by 247WallSt.com.
This ranking is the latest of many accolades for Meridian, but it’s no surprise to the 87,000 residents of the beautiful Boise suburb.
Criteria for the award included employment opportunities, crime rates, restaurants, educational attainment, housing affordability, and other important factors.
Here’s a look at some of Meridian’s attractive features:
- Population: 87,739
- Median Home Value: $193,900
- Unemployment Rate: 4.1% (national rate = 6.2%).
- Poverty Rate: 10.9%
- Percent of population with at least a bachelor’s degree: 27.9%
- Violent crimes per 100,000 population in past year: 80 (national average = 366).
Since late 2000, Meridian’s population has grown from 30,000 to more than 87,000 residents.
Since then, Meridian has blossomed into a vibrant small city with new parks, new schools, the Village at Meridian shopping mall, and numerous attractive subdivisions offering beautiful, affordable homes.
Given the careful planning, it’s no surprise that Meridian’s population has grown by 28% over the past five years (national average = 6.5%).
