Re: “City proposes incentive for company it will not name

Microsoft did select Cheyenne, Wyoming for a data center, as well as other areas. Just not Colorado Springs.…

I apologize. Intel had a presence-- not Microsoft.

Re: “Dinner Down on the Farm

Their corn muffins were fantastic, cinnamon rolls were wonderful, honey butter yummy, potato cheese soup to die for. I wish I had gotten the recipe for the potato cheese soup. I have looked for any of these recipes online for a few years and never found anything. If anyone knows of anything, please post here.

Re: “City proposes incentive for company it will not name

We are all human beings, and we dream of a perfect world in which it is joyful to live and work. But as we see it, our world is not like this. We choose new leaders, but it doesn't get any better. It seems to me that it is time to take responsibility in your own hands and really make the world a better place. And it is possible and even very easy. Join the global online international conference on the platform of Allatra's volunteer international social movement. Together we can change the world for the better.

Re: “Southeast shoulders one-third of city's pedestrian-vehicle fatalities

I see a lot of pedestrian shaming here that is shifting the blame onto the crash victims themselves. But the sad reality and facts are that a many of our streets are dangerous by design and are difficult, if not impossible, to traverse or cross comfortably and safely. The evidence is pretty clear that the built environment has a significant influence on both pedestrian and motorist behavior. Build the streets for high speeds and excessive traffic capacity to achieve the unrealistic goal of virtually eliminating any kind of motorist delay, and you should expect speeding and careless driving. Place the safe crosswalks far away or design them to be hostile to people on foot, and you get pedestrians making unsafe choices. If you want to encourage better behavior, start with building better streets, if not "great streets", rather than blaming people for doing what comes natural for them.

Want to learn more? Read the Academy Boulevard Corridor Great Streets Plan (2011) and the follow-up 2018 Progress Report that was authored in part by the Urban Land Institute.

Re: “City proposes incentive for company it will not name

Oh and 1 more thing- where was COS when HP was lured away to New Mexico? Sure, sure- they are doing layoffs, Xerox desires to buy them (God only knows how), and some poor management- but they provided good paying jobs and they still have a big base in NM. We actually lost a chunk of folks who needed those jobs and I firmly believe if we kept HP here- other IT companies would have found out that there was a lot to be garnered having a presence here. COS did not bid come to the table on incentives at all. Even the bit of Microsoft presence we had moved to NM.
Sure- who wants to live in NM? Well apparently the IT sector saw it differently some time ago. Now we have to regroup and begin with start-up's and call centers. Ugh.
It's too tough to do real business in this city. It's a big city without some of the infrastructure that one would expect.
We either need to stay small and keep that appeal (along with finding a way to lower costs here) else play with the big boys. You cannot have it both ways.
Our inability to pull in city like culture/cuisine/and technology is bizarre- probably based on our leadership.
I prefer the small town feel but we are pricing those types out so we best figure out where to go from here.

Re: “City proposes incentive for company it will not name

kmcolorado is right of course. No offense to this company- I was not impressed as I was invited to use their service and their outreach was light at the best in regards to feedback and so forth. They were also really cheap about it for being a startup at the time. I did not see anything different in the service they provide vs. others.
If it gets folks GOOD PAYING jobs- well awesome but I would not bet the ranch on them. They will be eaten up IMHO if they even get big enough. I just do not see innovation there.
BB- video messaging.

Re: “Southeast shoulders one-third of city's pedestrian-vehicle fatalities

The amazing thing to me is that as kids almost all of us were taught the rules for safely crossing streets. Yet as adults, many of us can't be bothered to follow these same rules or somehow feel they no longer apply to us -- as if we are above the law or that being an adult makes us invincible.

The rules, which Dave Hernandez spells out, are there for a reason, to keep us safe. And as he said, they are not difficult rules.

If the pedestrians would have just followed the law and these simple rules, we would have had only 2 or maybe 1 pedestrian deaths last year instead of 13.

Re: “Cigarette, vaping taxes pass in several Colorado cities and counties

There is something in the vape material they are suspending THC or nicotine that is not meant to be inhaled. I believe it is more present in THC vaping products due to way less oversight in the manufacturing/production of those products as opposed to a slightly more regulated nicotine vape product. There are tests for ingestion but these tests are mostly based on oral ingestion, not lung ingestion. It might be safe to swallow something as stomach acids can quickly dissolve it-but its a different story when you heat a substance and inhale it into your open lung tissue.

Incentives for 40 jobs?
This City Council will agree to anything as long as it means a new building.

They will even turn over open space to developers.

Re: “City proposes incentive for company it will not name

Works out to one new job per week for 48 months. Impressive.
Would like to see the average wage breakdown. How many above average and number below average. Guessing more at the $48k range or lower. When average wages are quoted, its a Red Herring.
Besides wages, does the average wage include benefits (medical, dental, sick leave, deductibles, etc.)and retirement packages which then takes real wages down?

Re: “Utilities' budget-billing customers get surprise charge

I had budget billing in denver and paid the actual Energy usage amount each month. I moved out of my condo in July 2018 and paid the bill in full. Excel apparently charged me for additional months even though I was no longer living there. I explained I had paid over the budget billing amount (the actual energy usage charges) each month so I would not owe anything after my last bill....does anyone have the name of a good attorney in Denver to help me fight these incorrect charges that should never have been added on? Thank you!

This is so true & is happening more & more as our Front Range population continues to explode. Visit Douglas Countys open space trails instead, they are still equestrian friendly & not so urban!
