A national magazine has released its top 100 micropolitans communities for 2015.

Site Selection magazine says four Oklahoma cities, Bartlesville, Durant, Enid and Miami made the list. Coffeyville in southeast Kansas was also on the list.

According to the article, a micropolitan is defined by the Office of Management and Budget in the White House as one or more adjacent counties that have at least one urban core area of at least 10,000 population but less than 50,000. It also must have an adjacent territory that has a high degree of social and economic integration with the core as measured by commuting ties.

  • Durant [#13]
  • Coffeyville [#39]
  • Enid [#39]
  • Miami [#73]

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin praised the state's four cities who made the 2015 list.

“Oklahoma continues to attract economic development projects in both urban and rural areas.  The addition of hundreds of jobs to cities like Durant, Enid, Bartlesville and Miami are significant and highlight the fact that every part of the state has something to offer to prospective businesses. I commend the Oklahoma Department of Commerce and the local economic development organizations for their efforts to see these projects through to success,” said Governor Mary Fallin.

Fallin says in total, 13 projects from Durant, Enid, Bartlesville and Miami will result in more than an estimated 975 jobs for the state.
