“Niche has recognized what we residents have always known — Montgomery is a treasure,” said Mayor Neena Singh. “Families move to our township because everyone knows it is a safe place with strong schools and beautiful parks. Our township staff, local businesses, school leaders, and organizations have worked hard to put us on the map and earn the recognition our community deserves.”

Montgomery earned its rank by scoring an A+ for its schools, family-friendliness, and health and fitness options. Niche also lauded the township for its variety of outdoor activities, low crime rate, housing options and employment availability.
