San Antonio on 2009 Best Performing Cities List

By November 19, 2009

The Milken Institute each year puts out a list of the Top Performing Cities in the United States, and San Antonio just missed the top 10 cut. Instead, the Alamo City came it at a still very-respectable 11th.

Nearby neighbor Austin was ranked number one based on a whole host of factors including economic performance and the ability to both create new jobs and maintain old ones.

Several Texas cities other than Austin and San Antonio were also on the list. In fact, Killeen/Temple/Fort Hood ranked 2nd, Mission/Edinburgh/McAllen was 4th, the Houston/Sugarland/Baytown area was 5th and Forth Worth/Arlington was 12th.
