Meridian Reviews

My family and I have lived in Colorado for 16 years now. We have been in our current city for the last 3 years. The location itself is a very desirable place to live in all of the state. The cost of living however is very high. The rental and housing market are very steep with new people moving here daily it continues to climb. The job market compared to other states is pretty good. The wages like most could be better. The schools in our current area are some of the best if I had to choose. Not many people including ourselves are happy about the "common core " being pushed into the schools. The schools in this area and surrounding are ranked very high for public schooling. I believe we will continue to keep this area as our home and raise our family here. Overall it's a great place to be with all four seasons everyday, things to do for all ages and pretty safe compared to most. In the future I do see huge growth and the cost of living going up. That's a price we are willing to pay to be here.
