Plano has been named one of the 10 Healthiest Cities in America. This past July, TIME Magazine released a book on healthy living. It’s entitled, “Healthiest Places to Live”. The book features 10 U.S. cities. Plano is the focus of a chapter called “Best Place for Staying Safe.” The chapter was written by Dallas freelance writer J.K. Nickell. “We used different criteria for each chapter,” said Claudia Wallis, TIME editor. “Plano comes up at or near the top of almost every ranking on safe, low-crime U.S. cities because of the FBI Uniform Crime Report. Our story looks at Plano’s impressive police department and the high level of citizen involvement in keeping the city safe,” said Wallis.
This is the latest in a long list of accolades for Plano. WalletHub.com recently named Plano the 2014 Best City for Families. Livability.com ranked Plano #5 in the Top 10 Best Cities for Kids and Movoto.com ranked Plano the #1 safest city with a population over 250,000. TIME’s Healthiest Places to Live book will be on sale for three months on newsstands across the country.
