City of Parkland Ranked 14th Best City for

Young Families in Florida

NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently

conducted a study to find the best city for young families in

Florida – and Parkland ranked 14th out of 180 cities and

towns with over 10,000 residents. Of Florida’s 54 counties,

11 have populations below the national median age of 37.3.

These younger places include some of Florida’s largest cities

— Tampa, Jacksonville and Orlando. The analysis was

conducted utilizing the following factors from the

US Census Bureau’s 2013 American Community Survey;

home affordability, prosperity and growth, quality of

education and family friendliness. Additional information

City of Parkland’s Crime Rate Drops By 33.6%

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office Parkland District

released the 2014 Annual Florida Department of Law

Enforcement (FDLE) Uniform Crime Report. The report

indicated that the BSO Parkland District saw a 33.6% overall

reduction in crime rate, and has the 2nd lowest crime rate

per 100,000 residents in Broward County. This reduction

cannot be attributed solely to the district personnel but also

to Parkland residents who contact BSO to report suspicious

persons and activity. Congratulations to the Broward

Sheriff’s Office Parkland District and the residents of

Parkland who assist in

keeping their communities
