Cleveland has recently been ranked number 15 in CNN's 15 Quickest Commutes in America with a median commute time of 9.9 minutes.

According to CNN's Website, the data was collected from the Best Places database, which reported that the residents from the 15 towns enjoy the shortest commutes to work.

Mayor Billy Nowell was "extremely happy to hear" of Cleveland's latest title and believes the town will continue to hold it.

"We have easy access and good infrastructure," said Nowell. "Our intersections are not too time consuming. You have to plan your commute since Cleveland is a fairly busy town."

"I feel like it will continue to be an easy commute," said Nowell. "Being a small town, while we continue to have growth, we will continue to keep people moving at a quick pace."

Nowell also noted that a quick and easy commute time contributes the overall pleasantness of small town life that Cleveland has to offer.

"It really helps you to be able to accomplish a lot more errands in a day's time that you're not able to do in most places…" said Nowell. "We're all very proud of this, and will work hard to maintain it."
