Colorado's safest city? Boulder and Longmont are both ranked in the top 5, according to the latest report from CQ Press. Their City Crime Ranking Report for 2011-2012 was released earlier this month, and uses data reported each year to the FBI. For this ranking report, they used data from cities with populations of 75,000 or more, and ranked the top 5, safest cities in Colorado as follows (in order):
- Ft. Collins
CQ Press has been releasing these annual city rankings since 1999, and this year it is nice to see Northern Colorado represented so favorably. When you combine this study with so many others that rank Boulder County cities so highly in other areas such as the Boulder real estate market, it's no wonder this is such a great place to live, work and play!
We recently published some interesting real estate market statistics on the Boulder market in general, and on Boulder Condos. It's always interesting to contrast and compare our local market with regional and/or national trends, and you can get a general review in both of these recent articles.
