Castle Rock Star Lighting November 2005
by Lane Roberts
Congratulations to the Town of Castle Rock. Family Circle magazine recently selected the Town of Castle Rock as one of the “10 best Towns for Families” in the United States.
The article, which appeared in the August edition of the magazine, shares the results of the extensive research to find “the best communities across the country.” Family Circle searched for towns that “combine big-city opportunities with suburban charm, locations that offer an ideal blend of affordable homes, good jobs, top-rated schools, wide-open spaces and a lot less stress.”
Working with a New York research firm, Family Circle assembled real estate and demographic data to assemble a list of 1,850 places with populations between 15,000 and 150,000 and with an average income of $65,000. That list was then narrowed based on family-friendly criteria which included cost of living, jobs, schools, air quality, open space, crime rates, and healthcare.
Other towns selected included: Diamond Bar, California, Morton Grove, Illinois, Cedar Park, Texas, Derby, Kansas, Kennesaw, Georgia, Cooper City, Florida, Madison, Mississippi, Franklin, Massachusetts, and Chanhassen, Minnesota.
Castle Pines North carries the Castle Rock address but is part of unincorporated Douglas County. “We are thrilled for the Town of Castle Rock,” said Maureen Shul, Master Association president. “This is certainly representative of the amazing communities we have in our county.”
