Saline, MI Named in Money Magazine's Top 100 Places to Live

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Missy Caulk TEAM

 Welcome to Saline, MIchiganArea residents and business people in the Saline Community are celebrating today the fact that Saline has been named to CNN Money Magazine's annual list of "Best Places to Live:  Top 100 in the United States".  The list represents extensive demographic research that examines areas like financial performance, housing, education, quality of life, leisure and culture, and health.  A complete list of the study's details is on their website (http://www.money.cnn.com/).

          The City of Saline, located in the heart of Washtenaw County in Southeast Michigan, was one of just three communities in the State to make the list (#59).  The other two were Plymouth Township (#37) and Farmington (#55).  In 2005 Saline was also made this list.  According to Saline Mayor Gretchen Driskell, "We're all really proud to be on the list again.  It's a direct reflection of the dedication of all the people who live in our community".

          The Saline Area Chamber of Commerce is planning an award presentation honoring this outstanding recognition and accomplishment.  "Considering the study looks at tens of thousands of communities in the United States, the list is narrowed down to 3,500, and then the final cut is made down to a scant 100, making the list is a real honor", said Larry Osterling, Executive Director of the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce.  "Everyone who calls Saline home can take pride in their contribution and that includes our folks in the surrounding areas of Pittsfield, Lodi, York, Bridgewater, and Saline Townships.  We have some really terrific small towns in Washtenaw County and it's great to see this type of recognition come our way."

Wow, check out the person above me!!!! Mr. or Mrs. "by" was so shocked by this news that he or she couldn't even write a comment.

I assume homebuyers are going to flock to your city now. Go get them my friend.

Stephanie, it is always a shock when a small town so near Ann Arbor wins this award. First a "cool city" award and now this.

Great job Missy!  Is Saline close enough to commute into Detroit?

Neal, I don't remember about Weston, but I didn't look closely at all 100 cities.

Leah, we are about 40 minutes to Detroit Metro Airport and about 50 to downtown Detroit. Close enough to get to the airport in good time. Many people live here and commute into the city or into Canada, which is under the tunnel or over the bridge. We also go into Detroit to Tigers, Pistons games and to see Broadway shows that travel here.

Missy--Congrats to Saline! I think Chaska, MN was #1 and Vadnais Heights, Minnesota, where my office is located was also listed in the top 100. I think Eden Praire was #8. Saline must be a great place to live as the MN communities that made the list are awesome!
