Unfortunately we have a mayor who while he did run on a campaign to improve the city actually had a different goal in mind. That goal was to build a monument to himself in the form of a stadium/convention center.... The city was far better off before we went to the strong mayor concept.
I considered moving to Pueblo, wasn't aware of utility issue... I think I will stay where I am at. I haven't heard anything good about the Black Hills company...
What do I like least.... inadequate public transportation, virtually non-existent in outlaying areas, even as close in as Rockrimmon....especially true of trans available for medically impaired. The contract that the city has with other companies is great if you are on dialysis but because of the number of dialysis patients people that are unable to drive and may need to go to physical therapy are not adequately provided for... tough if you don't have local family.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you call the power plant a blight... I call it a delight... virtually pollution free and keeping Colorado Springs Utility costs down....the clouds of steam that fill the sky provide a variety of shapes for those with imagination.... hurrah to the plant and BOO to those who consider it a blight... and this comment from an artist who realizes that there is more to beauty than what is on the surface.
Excellent coverage.... love the maps, they are a huge help... now what about mud/rock slides? Has anyone in the city been looking into that and addressing that? A huge downpour could cause serious problems in some of our neighborhoods.
