Suburban Move: Woodbury, MN
Woodbury, Minnesota is 9 miles east of Downtown Saint Paul with a population of about 62,000. But you would never guess that based on how quiet it is compared to it’s neighboring Twin Cities. In 2014, Money magazine ranked Woodbury as the 12th best place to live in the United States. And this year Woodbury is a finalist for the National Civic League’s (NCL) 2016 All-America City Award!
This award is given to 10 communities across the country each year. It recognizes neighborhoods, villages, towns, cities, counties, tribes and regions that engage residents in innovative, inclusive and effective efforts to tackle critical challenges.
