BRIGHTON, Mich., June 15, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RelocateAmerica has published its " TOP100 Places to Live " report in its 14th annual listing of the top communities in America. Despite continued economic gloom & doom still grabbing the headlines there are a number of areas that still rate quite favorably among leaders, businesses and relocating consumers.

"One of the factors we look for in communities as we determine the annual list is a strong show of community support among its local population" said Steve Nickerson, President of RelocateAmerica, "We believe that this comes from having influential local government and business leadership. These areas tend to be really great places to live, work and play in." 

New for this year on RelocateAmerica is the roll out of a year long initiative to give the local residents and leaders direct input about how their town rates in various breakout categories. Released throughout the upcoming year will be 6 different breakout categories that range from the top areas for education to the top areas for recreation and several other categories of interest to consumers. 

The first TOP10 breakout list will be determined by input gathered on the website starting on June 7th and running to July 31,2011. The results will be released on August 2, 2012. Visit http://top100.relocateamerica.com to vote.
