Rating the Burbs: Fort Thomas No. 4

According to Cincy Magazine, Fort Thomas came in at number 4 as an overall community in this year's "Rating the Burbs" feature for the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area. Only Madeira, Union Twp. and Terrace Park came in ahead of the Fort (1,2 & 3, respectively). Suck it Indian Hill.

The fifth annual "Rating the Burbs" project was the magazine's biggest ever. With stats on more than 130 communities, including more than 65 school districts, the rankings provide a comprehensive look at life in Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky villages, cities and townships.

The ratings were based on a number of factors, including census data, crime reports, home sales, and schools among other criteria. The census provided data on more than 175 villages, cities, townships and census designated places in Kentucky's Boone, Campbell and Kenton counties as well as Ohio's Butler, Clermont, Hamilton, and Warren counties.

Here's what the article had to say about Fort Thomas:

The ever-popular "Fourth at the Fort," business districts with real character, and a renovated town center are just some of the attractions in Fort Thomas, a community along the Ohio River. Like its name suggests, Fort Thomas has a rich military history. Just minutes from downtown Cincinnati off I-471, the city is home to the historic Fort Thomas Military and Community Museum. Most homes are single family, and the parks are getting makeovers to provide even more recreational opportunities.

We've talked about this magazine's feature before, and I'm sure Darrin will have more analysis on this later, but right now I feel like George Jefferson.

Please click that last link. It will make your Friday.
