Ranked by CNN's Money Magazine as the sixth best small city within the United States in which to live, Norman is run by a city-manager government in order to offer the quick response and local understanding a thriving community needs to grow. Home to many scientific ventures, Norman also boosts its economy as a Fair Trade town. One out of only 17 Fair Trade towns in the country, this means that the city supports the purchasing of goods from the local community itself. When goods cannot be purchased locally, the city will then support buying from producers abroad who meet Fair Trade standards.
Ideal Homes is proud to be a builder of new homes in Norman.
Norman also enjoys many arts and culture events sponsored by the in-town university, including music centers, theaters, and one of the largest French Impressionist painting collections in the United States. The Museum of Natural History has one of the largest and most important Paleozoic exhibits in existence.
