Westerville Named one of America’s Friendliest Towns

 In Columbus, Ohio, Residential

My home town of Westerville Ohio was named the fifth friendliest town in the United States according to Forbes and a Nextdoor.com.  Westerville was the only town in Ohio to make the top 25.

Some of this is attributed to the number of park, Westerville Community Center, 4th Friday celebration in the old uptown Westerville, Otterbein University’s activeness in the community. Also a factor is the nearly nonexistence of crime in the community.

“In determining America’s friendliest towns, Nextdoor.com first looked at more than 1,000 towns across the country and narrowed that to 500, based on its own neighborhood engagement index, which considers the number of active website members and the amount of content those members post.”

The list was narrowed further to towns with populations of less than 150,000 and a point-system based on percentage of college graduates, percentage of owner-occupied homes and charitable contributions.
