Many community leaders — who affirm Menomonee Falls “has it all” — were not surprised the village was recently ranked No. 15 in Money’s Best Places to Live for 2020 in America.

Sun Prairie, the only other Wisconsin municipality on the list, came in at No. 40. 

Money, formerly a monthly magazine, is an online source for personal finance news and information, according to its website.

Chamber of Commerce director Toni Gumina said Menomonee Falls has been “very resilient during the pandemic” and said the village has strong retailers, diverse businesses and an exceptional police department.

But others say surveys like this do not account for people of color.

“A lot of times I see the headlines, and we (people of color) know the poll was not taken by us,” said Sean Lowe, who is Black and treasurer at the National Urban League Young Professionals.
