It's nice to live and work in Milton

It may be one of Georgia’s newest cities, but Milton is already one of the best places to live in the state, according to a new study.
The study conducted by Business Journals and based on the U.S. Census Bureau's 2009 American Community survey, ranks the City of Milton as having the highest quality of life in Georgia, and the ninth best in the south.
Milton Spokesman Jason Wright tells WSB the study looked at economic factors, as well as quality of housing and education.
"It's a beautiful place with very intelligent, engaged residents," said Wright.
More than 96 percent of Milton residents older than 25 have a high school diploma, 66 percent have a bachelor's degree, and more than 20 percent have advanced degrees.
According to the survey, Milton had a median household income of $117,608, more than double the national median of roughly $50,000. It also had a tremendously low poverty rate for families of only 2.82 percent compared to the national average of 11.1 percent.
Wright says as a young city, they're constantly trying to put themselves on the map, both literally and figuratively.
"We are only five years old and this was the first time that we've ever been recognized for anything like this," said Wright.
