Mayor Bob Huber is pleased to announce that Simi Valley has been named fourth on the list of “Pleasant Places to Live in the U.S.” The term “pleasant” was defined by a mean temperature between 55 and 75 degrees with “no significant precipitation or snow depth.”
As reported by CaliforniaCityNews.org, the list of “Pleasant Places to Live” was created by Kelly Norton, who compiled National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data for the past 23 years and determined that Simi Valley has averaged 156 “pleasant” days per year. The City of Oxnard was named third on the list with 166 “pleasant” days per year, and the City of Los Angeles was named number one with 183 “pleasant” days.
Norton is a designer and software engineer who resides in Georgia. He decided to identify “pleasant” climates after flying between Atlanta and New York throughout the month of January.
“We are very pleased that Simi Valley has been recognized as one of the most pleasant places to live in our country,” Mayor Huber said. “Our residents would definitely concur that the weather here adds to our quality of life.”" [GD: Post leached in full]
Simi Valley also still ranks high in the Safest Mid-sized Cities (well usually at least) category too... :)
