Movoto Real Estate recently put together a list of the top ten communities to raise a family in Illinois, and we weren’t surprised to see that Plainfield made the list at number 5! Movoto took a look at the US Census, the FBI Uniform Crime Report, and GreatSchools.org to collect their data and create an unbiased, fact-based list using family friendly criteria.
Some of the data used in the criteria included:
- GreatSchools score
- High School Graduation rate
- Percent of Households with children
- Crimes per 100,000 people
- Cost of living
- Unemployment rate
- Commute time
- Childcare facilities and providers per capita
- Parks per capita
A look at the above list and then at Plainfield, and it becomes totally clear why the community made the top 5! The village of Plainfield is full of families—56.12 percent of the village’s residents have kids. And the graduation rate in Plainfield is at an impressive 96 percent, the highest in the state.
Plainfield is a great community to raise a family—great schools, beautiful natural resources, easy access to major highways, and plenty of dining, shopping, and recreational options. And at Springbank of Plainfield we have an amazing Aquatic Center, miles of bike paths, a future on-site elementary school, and builders who are ready to build you a great home for your family.
