As seen in CNN’s Money Magazine, The Colony ranked No. 20 among “Best Places to Live”, making us No. 1 in Texas within the 50 “Best Places to Live” in the nation among small towns. Highlighting our lake access and amenities, job opportunities, affordable homes and living,
The Colony moved from rank No. 68 last year to No. 20 this year. This has certainly boasted the pride within our community and with good reason. It’s the people, the residents, the volunteers, the schools, teachers, churches, and organizations with such big hearts that each contribute to making The Colony such a great place to live, and for this, we Thank You!
Money’s website reads, “America’s top 50 small towns are not only thriving economically, they’ve also got all you could want in a place to raise a family: plenty of green space, good schools, and a strong sense of community.” And indeed there is a strong sense of community here in The Colony.
You can see the growth, shopping strips filling, new buildings along Hwy 121, and the excitement of TopGolf and Nebraska Furniture Mart opening, and the Grandscape area developing. There are not only new retail venues opening but also improved amenities and community development programs. The Colony is truly a wonderful place to live, work, and play.
“Such a prominent ranking among the nation’s best places to live confirms what we here in The Colony already knew, which is that our community offers an excellent quality of life that will only get better as we continue to grow,” says Mayor Joe McCourry.
From the City, it’s Boards and Departments to the Chamber, it’s Members and Businesses on to you, our residents, our volunteers, our organizations and our community – THANK YOU, for making The Colony, our great city, No. 1.
