Överboda is located in western Umeå Municipality and borders Vännäs Municipality, a strategic location between these two municipal capitals.
Is Överboda a classic old farming community or is it now just a modern suburb of the city of Umeå? Both descriptions are probably accurate, but it does have a strong business community which now plays an important role in the area’s survival. We can therefore describe Överboda with these simple keywords:
- A dynamic farming tradition
- A diverse and interesting business community
- Modern suburb to the City of Umeå – friendly residential setting
- Acceptable level of infrastructure
