Springdale has jumped two spots to become the 6th fastest-growing small city in America for 2017, according to a recent study from WalletHub.com. Last year Springdale ranked number eight on this list. A "small" city is defined as one with fewer than 100,000 residents.
"More and more families are choosing to move to Springdale because of our job opportunities, top-tier school system, and safe, family friendly environment with high-quality amenities," said Mayor Doug Sprouse. "We have a strong economy in Springdale, and this population growth helps to support the entire community by increasing the City's sales tax base that pays for vital services such as police and fire. Population growth also helps to support local businesses that create jobs."
Springdale ranks 17th overall nationwide, and is the only city in the state of Arkansas to make the top 30 in the overall ranking of fastest-growing cities.
