Very good article and commentary Ralph
I suggest that people re-read this article . The author may only be 22 but he gets it. Denver is a very good model of smart urban growth and planning.
Colorado Springs on the other hand is a poster child of bad development practices and poor planning. The eastside sprawl is a tragedy. Our transportation system is a joke . East/West Corridors are insufficient for traffic, Powers is still not complete, Public transit has been cut back, the citizenry refuses to chip in and pay for improvements, affordable Downtown residential projects are rejected by neighborhood associations, parks and other public amenities are suffering and Doug Bruce is regarded as a hero .
It's time to wake up , we're on the Titanic and the band is still playing a waltz instead of reveille.
