Naperville has been named to Money magazine’s prestigious “Best Places to Live” list seven times since 2004, ranking No. 10 on the 2016 list, and was named the best place for early retirement by Kiplinger in 2013. Naperville was rated the safest city in America again in 2017 by Niche.com as well as Homes.com. Naperville was named the sixth safest city in late 2016 by SmartAsset.com and was also rated the third most successful city in the United States based on high median income and low poverty levels by Zippia.com, a career resource website. Also in 2017, the National Council for Home Safety and Security named Naperville number 14 on its list of the Top 100 Best Cities to Raise Kids in the U.S. The group touted Naperville’s education system and used crime data and health insurance coverage to compile its list.

In Naperville, the City aims not just to serve the community, but serve it well. Part of serving the community includes stewardship over the natural resources that drew town founder Joseph Naper to this area almost 200 years ago.

In 2008, Naperville’s nationally accredited Public Works Department received the U.S Green Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification for its new Public Works Service Center and commitment to producing a source efficient building that is better for our environment and better for our community.

Work

Economic development and a successful business community are cornerstones of Naperville.

What Works Cities Initiative

Continuous efforts for openness, accountability and honesty within the community are of high importance.  In June 2016, Naperville was selected as the first city in Illinois to participate in Bloomberg Philanthropies’ What Work Cities initiative – one of the largest-ever philanthropic efforts to enhance the use of data and evidence in the public sector. This exciting new partnership will allow the City to continue its focus on innovation, efficiency and openness to our community.
