Default 96% of residents are happy in Cookeville

So far out of those who have returned the surveys the city mailed out in mid-April, 96% are either satisfied or very satisfied with living in Cookeville. Considering that people are more prone to complain rather than praise when it comes to things like this, I think that says a lot about the quality of life in Cookeville.

Welcome SKPinTN - we're glad to have you I saw somewhere else that you just moved from Jax, FL. What brought you to God's country?

Thanks Amber My Mom was born and raised in Livingston and moved to FL as a teenager, where she met my Dad. My husband and I have been talking and praying about getting away from Jacksonville with all the stress and crime for a little over a year. God answered our prayers, because here we are!

Now Mom & Dad are up here looking at houses. They will go back to FL and put their house on the market and see what happens. We have been here a little over a month and absolutely love it!

It is great to hear that the residents of Cookeville are very happy with the way things are run there. I'm very happy to have chosen this area for my planned retirement.

We have communicated before on this site. We too live on the left coast and have been counting the days until we can leave Calif. and get to Cookeville. Well, we are 5 months away. It was two years just yesterday. We hope to share in the happiness and make it 97%. Our home in White Plains is calling to us.

Hey everybody, thanks to JMT, here is a photo of the new home in White Plains waiting for my wife and I. It was taken by a friend after the last snows and if I say so myself, it looks like a Hallmark card.
