The City of Middleton was named the "Best Place to Live" in America in the August 2007 issue of Money Magazine. With an outstanding quality of life, the "Good Neighbor City" is a dynamic hub of commercial activity, recreation, entertainment, dining/night life and environmental treasures on the western edge of Madison, the Wisconsin state capital. Unlike most other cities of its size (approx. 17,000 population), Middleton features the amenities and activity of much larger cities while maintaining its own unique small town charm with friendly and spirited people.
Middleton benefits from close proximity to Madison, as well as the University of Wisconsin and the U.W. Research Park. The business community features a strong cluster of high-tech, biotech, pharmaceutical, medical research and agri-businesses as well as emerging and expanding commercial enterprises. The City's tax base has grown from about $1 billion in tax valuation in 1998 to about $2.5 billion in 2007.
The City of Middleton embraces a vast interest in and enhancement of quality of life amenities such as: The Performing Arts Center (PAC); Middleton Municipal Airport-Morey Field, Pleasant View Golf Course (27 Holes) and a nationally ranked and highly respected public library.
The Middleton/Cross Plains Area School District is a state leader in test scores, academic achievement, athletic performance (including several state championships in a variety of sports) and civic participation. The quality of our teachers and students is second to none, and Middleton and Wisconsin receive national recognition regularly.
