Heber City Ranked Among Top Small Towns

Press Release

July 23, 2014

Heber City — Heber City has been ranked No. 8 on a list of Top 10 Small Towns for 2014 by Livability.com, a national website that ranks quality of life and travel amenities of America’s small to mid-sized cities.

For this list of cities, editors analyzed more data on small towns than in any previous year. Using metrics from Esri, they started by looking at cities with populations under 20,000 and analyzed 41 different data points, including cost of living, health-care spending, racial and socioeconomic diversity, adult obesity, crime, civic engagement, air quality and natural amenities. After narrowing down the list, editors conducted a visual assessment of the cities and found out what visitors had to say about them and what residents liked about living there.

“Throughout the U.S., we’re seeing a resurgence of emphasis on downtowns in cities of all sizes,” said Livability.com editor Matt Carmichael. “It’s nice to see in the big cities, certainly, but it’s especially great to see these smaller towns not just holding their own, but also thriving.”

Heber City has a low crime rate, good schools and an excellent health-care system.
