It may seem that in this day and age the word “suburb” brings about pictures of cookie cutter homes, strip malls, and a town full of Stepford-wife types. Often there is a thirst for the convenience of having what’s needed nearby, with the charm and personality of a small town. Enter, the city of Westfield, Indiana.
“We are thrilled to attract families to Westfield,” said Mayor Andy Cook. “The amenities, schools and quality of life in Westfield are clearly what families are looking for when deciding where to put down roots.” Westfield, called WalletHub’s Best Small City of 2016 and 2017’s 3rd Best City to Raise a Family in Indiana, is becoming a beloved place to call home for people from far and wide. “Families continue to come to Westfield not just from other places in Indiana, but from all over the country,” Mayor Andy Cook said.
Several commuters choose Westfield because of its central location. With highway access it’s a convenient trip to Carmel, and just about anywhere else one would want to go. It’s the most excellent choice for those looking for a north side address, but travel regularly.
Hoping for a job in Westfield? “Westfield, IN is the best-field when it comes to jobs; it came in 3rd for the best cities for jobs in Indiana. A suburb of Indianapolis, Westfield boasts a low unemployment rate (5th overall) and strong future job growth (8th),” as stated in a study done by Zippia.
Picture a quiet morning walk to the local Farmer’s Market. How about a family night out in the park watching a movie on the big screen? Need a new place to eat? There are so many local restaurants nearby! With local boutiques, parks, walking trails like the Midland Trail, breweries, and city events, staying busy is never a problem.
At the core of it all is downtown Westfield and Union Street. As soon as you get off the highway, you’ll find numerous locally owned shops & restaurants. Here you can find Union Street Flats and Ashley Place Apartments, located in downtown Westfield and fostering the similar community and neighborly feeling you get from the City of Westfield.
Near both J.C. Hart Company Communities is Union Street Flowers. “I love being a part of the Westfield community. I feel like everybody is supportive of each other. it’s nice to have encouragement from other business owners. They want everybody else to do well. My mom and I have lived in Westfield our whole lives. We love Westfield. There is a lot of growth happening and a lot of neat businesses popping up. There are a lot of excellent events too, which are bringing people into Westfield,” Kristen Weiss, Manager of Union Street Flowers said.
Often partnering with local businesses, Union Street Flats is overjoyed to be a part of the community, and furthermore, is excited to bring that community to Residents through Resident events. By teaming up with Pat-A-Cakes Bakery, Grand Junction Brewery, Bash Boutique, and Union Street Flowers to name a few, Union Street Flats is able to introduce Residents to the heart of Westfield whether they were born and raised in Indiana or here from out of state and making Indiana home sweet home.
