Gainesville: A Great Place to Retire
Where to Retire magazine named the City of Gainesville one of “8 Terrific Low-Tax Towns” and spotlights small cities in the nation as “Best Places to Retire” to enjoy a good, quality life while saving money. The article in the January/February 2008 issue notes Gainesville’s low taxes, prime location and highlights the community as “a Southern hot spot attracting boomers on the move.”
Also noted is Gainesville’s economic stability, mild seasons, high-end retirement communities, a “peachy” state tax structure that benefits seniors and free tuition to state universities. Photos of the Downtown Square and city municipal buildings are spotlighted in the article.
Kit Dunlap, President/CEO of the Greater Hall Chamber is quoted, “For those who want the convenience and access to Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, but desire a small-town quality of life with big-city cultural amenities, a host of outdoor recreational opportunities and access to high-quality healthcare, Gainesville is an attractive choice for retirees.” Copies of the article are available at the Greater Hall Chamber, 230 E.E. Butler Parkway.
