Springdale: Kid friendly

Posted By on Thu, Nov 19, 2009 at 8:12 AM

Business Week says Springdale is again this year the best city in Arkansas for raising kids. Criteria: School performance, number of schools, household expenditures, crime rates, air quality, job growth, family income, museums, parks, theaters, other amenities, and diversity.

Affordability, safety and school test scores were given the greatest weight.

Runners-up were Fayetteville and Rogers.

SPEAKING OF CHICKENOPOLIS: Tyson Foods has a new CEO, Donnie Smith, who'd been a senior VP.
