The results are in and once again, Horsham Township is one of the best small towns in America, according to CNN Money Magazine.
The magazine, in its September issue, ranked Horsham No. 34 out of 50 "Best Places to Live."
"Horsham may not have much of a walkable downtown, but with five high-end office parks that house more than 600 businesses (including several Fortune 500 firms), the town is more than just a bedroom community," the magazine states.
Horsham got the nod from CNN Money Magazine in 2011 when the 17-square-mile township was selected as No. 31 of the top 100 places to live. Horsham also made the list as No. 15, in 2007. And, in 2009, U.S. News and World Report selected Horsham as being one of the best places to live in Pennsylvania.
In the most recent ranking, Horsham was one of two municipalities out of 2,563 in Pennsylvania–West Goshen Township ranked 10th–that was selected as a best place to live.
Horsham Township Manager Bill Walker said the township's diverse housing community and "vibrant economy" help it to stand out.
Horsham Council President Mark McCouch said he appreciates the "positive exposure" that comes with the magazine's ranking.
"It is really a community effort in making our township what it is," McCouch said in a press release. "We have great residents, an excellent school district and an active business community which amplifies our quality of life. We are proud to offer the services that we do the residents and at the same time maintain our low tax rate.”
Councilman William Whiteside said that the Money Magazine ranking "helps to validate all the great things" the township is doing.
"With the township’s focus on redeveloping the former Willow Grove NAS-JRB and creating more jobs, housing opportunities and a vibrant town center, Horsham’s best days are yet to come," Whiteside said in the release.
