  2. 2. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) Naperville was ranked as the 4th “Snobbiest mid-sized city in America” by real-estate blog Movoto. The criteria included Naperville luxury home prices, income, number of private schools, population with a college degree, number of country clubs and number of art galleries. Naperville, IL had the highest percentage of residents with a college degree (66%). Naperville also has the second highest household income.
  3. 3. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) Mayor George Pradel, considered to be Naperville’s most passionate advocate, took this in a positive light, saying that this recent survey has put Naperville on the map again. “If you look at their statistics, the background, homes, income, education, one could assume that this could be a snooty area. But it’s not until you actually get out in the community when you find out that’s really not what’s happening here,” says Mayor Pradel. “That’s just kind of looking at it on the surface. You find that this is a very, very friendly city with generous people who care about each other.”
  4. 4. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) Mayor Pradel has all the right reasons to say so. Here are the top reasons why Naperville is NOT a snobby city: Naperville IL has been ranked 3rd Best Place to Live in America. Money Magazine rated Naperville as the third best place to live in America in 2005. Other citations and rankings Naperville IL has received are: •America’s Best Place to Be A Kid (U.S. Census Bureau, 2005) •Top 10 Small Towns for Senior Citizens (AARO, 2000) •One of the Top 10 Best Walking Towns (Walking Magazine, 1999) •Seven-time Top 1 Best Public Library System (American Library Association)

  6. 6. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) Strong Sense of Volunteerism and Community Service Naperville has a strong sense of community. You get a sense of how much people care about local and national citizenship through the overall amount of volunteer work and contribution done by its residents. Naperville offers numerous opportunities for volunteer work and community service opportunities. Even its famous landmark, the Riverwalk, was originally built by voluntary labor.
  7. 7. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) Cultural Outreach Program Naperville’s Cultural Outreach Program was created by Mayor George Pradel to help foster connections with its residents of diverse cultural backgrounds. Amongst these cultures are European, Asian, South Asian, Hispanic, African-American, American Indian, Alaskan, Mixed and more! Mayor Pradel’s Outreach Program was created to ensure that all cultures were connected and well represented to make Naperville a better city by bringing these communities closer. This active promotion of interracial unity proves that Naperville is far from being socially exclusive, as the term “snobby” might imply.
  8. 8. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) Naperville is Named the “Safest City of Its Size” in Illinois The crime level in Naperville is far lower than is typical for Illinois’ largest cities, according to NBI statistics. One big reason why Naperville has less crime than most other cities is the relative lack of gang activity in town. This is mainly due to Naperville’s proactive approach in implementing anti-gang programs. Since the 1980’s and 90’s, when gangs were starting to gain hold of other cities in the State, the Naperville city government, with the help of its citizens, has been working to keep gangs from gaining a foothold in Naperville.
  9. 9. Top Reasons Why Naperville Is NOT a Snobby City (Part 1) The police have built strong partnerships with citizens and groups in Naperville. Many residents participate in anti-crime programs like the Neighborhood Watch and Community Radio Watch to help make Naperville safer. It’s not just one person or group that makes crime rates low in the city, it’s the whole community of Naperville residents who care about their city’s safety. Safety has always been one of the first things people look at when deciding to move, and that’s one of the reasons why a lot of people are moving into Naperville, IL.
