Columbia/Ellicott City:Best Places to Live

Posted by David Keelan on Monday, July 17, 2006

At the county council public hearing this evening both Ken Ulman and Charlie Feaga brought to our attention (although I heard it on WBAL this morning) that Columbia/Ellicott City were listed as the fourth best place to live in the US.

The Sun posted an article this mornging.

Hayduke has a post on it.  We’re number 4!  I need not add anything to it accept to repeat what David Wissing said.  Ellicott City made it to number 20 in 2005 on its own merits and Columbia didn’t even make it to the top 100.  Regarding Hayduke’s position that Columbia did all the heavy lifting I can only say this.  Ellicott City lifted Columbia up, and Columbia propelled Ellicott City to number four.  What a partnership.  The Republican’s in Ellicott City and the Democrats of Columbia work pretty well together to create a community where diversity of every kind (including opinions) can flurish in a beautiful environment.

I hope this does not slow down implementation of the Rt 40 task force recommendations.
