If you still haven't managed to convince friends or family to move to Naperville, a recent report may finally change their minds. 

Naperville has been listed among the top ten "Best Mid-Sized Cities to Move to," according to real estate website Movoto

The list was determined by a number of criteria including the number of homes for sale per capita, unemployment rate, cost of living, median household income, crime rate and schools. 

Naperville was ranked No. 9 due to its "extremely low crime rate and excellent public schools," according to the site. 

The city was ranked first in the median household income category, with an average annual income of more than $98,000, according to Movoto. 

Naperville also received praise for being one of the safest mid-sized cities. The city was tied for first place with Frisco, TX, Overland Park, KS, Cary, NC, Thousand Oaks, CA and Sunnyvale, CA for having very low crime rates.

They haven't considered the major parking issue in downtown Naperville. If you work or shop there it is a major issue. Many employees have received tickets because of these parking restrictions. The most ridiculous is not being able to park in a 5 level garage that is practically empty before 9am. If your shift starts before 9am and you can't move your car for 4.5 hours, you don't have ANY options. Very frustrating and not friendly to the BUSINESSES OR THE SHOPPERS.

Parking for business owners and their employees is a low priority downtown. Somehow they figure you're within walking distance or you all carpool.
