For this reason, the WSJ’s top ten list and Climate Alpha’s own preferred “Zoomtowns” varies considerably. While the former touts mid-sized metros that are affordable today — such as Springfield, MO and Lafayette, IN — we focused on destinations projected to retain (or enhance) their desirability in the future.
Using our proprietary Resilience Index™ scores as a baseline, we applied a methodology similar to the WSJ’s and arrived at a list ranging from Portland, OR and Colorado Springs, CO to the outskirts of Nashville and Columbus — along with the “west coast” of Michigan.
