I'm leaving in 12 days for a 2 week long roadtrip with my business partner to find our new city in either the South, Midwest, or Texas. We have 10 cities on our list that all have stable economies (relative to the current recession) and will appeal to us.

I created a checklist for our trip that will be filled out as we travel and observe, and also using the internet to research statistics (for categories like crime and climate).

I figured since it might be helpful to others, I would offer it here for anyone else looking for a new city. I suggest you modify it to fit your own needs- for instance I don't have schools on here since it's not a priority for me.

Hope you find it helpful!

The pdf can be found here- Select All and paste into word- but you might have to redo the "comments" line.

Thread too old, I guess; it's gone away. Too bad, sounded like it would be really helpful for us.
