Levittown Chosen As 41st Best Place To Live By Money Magazine
Money Magazine, in its annual Best Places to Live 2016 edition, has named the Levittown section of Bristol Township as the 41st best place to live in America. Levittown is the only Pennsylvania community to make the list. The magazine cited jobs, affordable housing, property taxes, public schools, healthcare, recreational opportunities, and low crime as their criteria for the methodology in determining their rankings.
Council President Craig Bowen said that it was a great accomplishment to be recognized by a highly-regarded national publication such as Money Magazine. “The Township Council made some very difficult decisions to reduce the cost of government and invested millions of tax dollars to improve Bristol Township,” Bowen said. “It’s nice to be saluted nationally. ”Bowen noted that the Council’s priorities of job creation, improving housing stock, lowering property taxes, and investing in technology to bring the police department up to date to fight crime have clearly paid off.
