Money Magazine Names St. Peters as a Top 100 Best Place to Live

St. Peters checks in at No. 76 on the list.

For the third time in the last five years, St. Peters has named one of the Top 100 Best Places to Live. 

While not on the initial list, St. Peters was recently added to Money magazine's Top 100 Best Places to Live after the ’editors of the magazine discovered some erroneous job, cost-of-living and test score statistics were used in compiling the original listing The new listings are included in the November, 2012 edition and posted on the magazine’s website, money.cnn.com.

St. Peters checks in at No. 76 on the list. The city made the list in 2008 and again in 2010. 

"It’s always nice to have an outside organization verify what we know——St. Peters is one of the greatest places in our country to call ‘'My Hometown,'" St. Peters Mayor Len Pagano said in a press release. 

Money magazine looks in on U.S. cities with populations ranging from 50,000 to 300,000 and considers a number of factors in picking the best places to live. Among the items looked at by the editor are job growth, income increases, cost of living, housing affordability, school quality, arts and leisure options, safety, medical care, diversity and several ease-of-living criteria. 

According to the Money magazine website, money.cnn.com, the editors use statistics compiled from data services company Onboard Informatics. Due to erroneous information for a small number of places, St. Peters was mistakenly left off the top 100 on an earlier version of the 2012 Top 100 Places to Live list.

If Pagano had his way, there would be a CVS, Walgreen's, Menard's, Lowe's, Home Depot and any other business/factory he could suck in to St. Peters at every intersection, open land, farm land (is there any left), and your home! Buy St. Peters at surging 10f% sales tax! He would have a 6 lane highway running through the subdivisions that were left. Pagano for 2030 and beyond!
