Data on new residents moving into Pella was recently compiled for the first three-quarters of the year. Kat Whitson, Director of Positively Pella at the Pella Chamber of Commerce, says their have been a total of 125 new households, consisting of 299 individuals that have moved in so far this year. That compares to 187 new households and 421 individuals at around this time last year. Despite the decrease in new residents, Whitson says the quality of education available and the sense of community continue to be big draws in bringing new people to Pella.
