Lubbock has once again received five stars from a national publication.
Lubbock has been named a "Five Star Quality of Life Metro" by Penton Media's Expansion Management, a business magazine for executives of companies actively looking to expand or relocate their facilities.
The distinction of "Five Star Quality of Life Metros" is awarded to the top 20% of metro areas in the study.
The rankings evaluated housing affordability, crime rates and public schools, as well as the standard of living, traffic and commuting and much more.
Lubbock placed among the top ten of US metros for traffic and commuting.
