Westfield, Indiana: Where Small Town Charm Meets Big City Opportunity
July 24, 2018
It may be that the word “suburb” brings about visions of cookie cutter homes, strip malls, and a community full of Stepford-wife types. Often there is a thirst for the ease 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,” stated 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, branded WalletHub’s Best Small City of 2016 and 2017’s 3rd Best City to Raise a Family in Indiana, is becoming a preferred place to call home for folks 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.
Countless commuters choose Westfield because of its central location. With highway access it’s a timely trip to Carmel, and just about anywhere else in Indiana. It’s the best 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 concluded in a study by Zippia.
Envision a quiet morning walk to the local Farmer’s Market. How about a family night out in the park attending an outdoor, newly released flick? Need a different place to eat? There are at least a dozen local restaurants in walking distance! 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. Right off the highway with the ability to get anywhere quickly and conveniently, you’ll find numerous locally owned shops & restaurants. Here you can find Union Street Flats and Ashley Place Apartments, located in the heart of downtown Westfield and fostering the same community and neighborly feeling you sense 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 backing 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 unique 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 happy to be a part of the community, and more so, is excited to bring that community to Residents through Resident events. By partnering with Pat-A-Cakes Bakery, Grand Junction Brewery, Bash Boutique, and Union Street Flowers, Union Street Flats is able to introduce Residents to the heart of Westfield whether they are a Hoosier or here from hundreds of miles away and making Indiana home sweet home.
