Living Costs Revisited

I posted a blog on 5/16/04 calling attention to an article in Forbes Magazine that listed the Peoria Metropolitan area as the 3rd best in the U.S. in living costs. I wrote “I did not note any media picking up on this article; if they did I missed it. If they didn’t other organizations promoting Peoria should do so”.

Reviewing my files on Peoria, I found out the reasons why. An article dated 5/12/04 in the JS said “Peoria ranks 1st in living costs, but Forbes Magazine rates the city as 127th best place to live out of 150 metropolitan areas. Ah, ha. We slipped, we dropped from #1 to #3 and we were only 23 places from the bottom in best places to live. No wonder the JS didn’t brag about our 2005 ranking. (Maybe another of many reasons why there has been one retirement announced from the JSEB and rumor is maybe one more coming).

At this point I refer you back to my blog of 5/25/05 titled “Prosperity Almost Realty for Dreamville.”

Goodnight.
