Hoover named Best Place to Live in Alabama by 24/7 Wall St.
HOOVER, Ala. (WBRC) - Mayor Frank Brocato announced Friday that Hoover was named Best Place to Live in Alabama by 24/7 Wall St.
A celebratory marketing campaign called “Love to Live in Hoover” was unveiled.
The campaign, created by Hoover-based marketing company Content Logistix, contains several features:
- Bideo highlighting different sites around the city.
- Interstate banners overlooking I-459 at the Lorna Road Bridge and along I-65 at the Alford Ave. Exit.
- Social media landing pages entitled “Love to live in Hoover” on Facebook and Instagram.
- Three 8-foot hearts located at City Hall, along Highway 280 and along Highway 150.
- Posters and light poles banners to be placed throughout the City.
City officials say the pinnacle of the campaign includes more than 30 three-foot hearts placed around the city at beloved locations like Veterans Park, Moss Rock Preserve, Aldridge Gardens, Spain Park and Hoover High School, Tip Top and the Hoover Folklore Center. Each heart contains a small caption describing the designation. Residents are encouraged to take selfies in front of the hearts then post them to a campaign Facebook and Instagram page using the QR code found on each heart. Those pages are entitled: Love to Live in Hoover.
24/7 Wall St. ranks on four categories: economy, affordability, quality of life, and community.
“Our crimes rates are very very low, and our household earnings are high. We are a very diverse community. Our dining and shopping opportunities are outstanding. Access to world-class outdoors opportunities are abundant, and our neighborhoods are very desirable. To top it off, we offer a top-notch education for our children,” said Brocato.
Brocato said 24/7 Wall St. measured the four factors in cities across the state, and Hoover consistently came out on top.
Friday’s program ended with the releasing of 30 blue, heart-shaped balloons and refreshments.
“This is a reflection of the wonderful people who live here, the amazing businesses that choose to operate in our city, our amazing school district and our dedicated city employees,” Brocato said. “As Mayor, I could not be more proud of who we are as Hoover. I can honestly say - I love to live in Hoover.”
