We're Very Satisfied

Pardon we while I brag on my community a bit.

 

We're Happy!In the annual Gallup poll measuring how satisfied residents were with the city in which they lived, the Fort Collins-Loveland area ranked #1 nationally. Gallup surveyed residents in 189 cities across the country. Fort Collins-Loveland topped the list, with 94.9% of its residents expressing satisfaction with the community. This is the third time Fort Collins-Loveland has ranked among the top cities, and it has always scored over 90% since the annual survey began in 2008.

 

Of course, none of this is surprising news to those of us who live here. We have long enjoyed a beautiful setting with instant access to all the outdoors has to offer us, a fabulous climate with over 300 days of sunshine annually, great education and healthcare systems, good public infrastructure, friendly and tolerant people, a downtown rich in cultural and social offerings, a dynamic university that is very much woven into the community fabric, and, by the way, more restaurants per capita than anywhere else in the U.S.

 

I have taken note of the happiness of people ever since I moved here, and I attribute a lot of the reason to our employment base. We have a very well-educated labor force, working in a well-diversified economy. Many of our employers offer innovative workplaces, and are involved heavily in the community. People are happy at work, and they take that back into the community.

 

How could we possibly be unsatisfied?
