This year, MoneySense took a new approach to tackle the lowest ranking cities our list. We’ve narrowed our gaze to focus on the worst performers in each of the most important categories in addition to listing the lowest overall scoring cities.
The goal here is not to chastise these cities and the no-doubt spirited people who live there but to highlight areas where city officials and residents can work together for positive change. Of course there’s not much anyone can do about the weather but there’s a lot we can do to make our cities more safe, accessible and fun.
