Re: “Your Turn: Let's be like Denver

wow, you two sound pretty bitter... i get what drew is saying and i, for one, completely agree. this town has some major deficiencies that need to be addressed. the blame can't be placed on a specific thing b/c the problems spur from 100 years of city building/planning in the western united states. it's not that we need to be like denver, it's quite the opposite. the idea that there is a single way to plan and build a city is a misconception that has only been realized too late. the majority of western us cities were based on the trials of urban theory tested in los angeles, which is just now starting to dig its way out of that mess. the springs has the potential to be a forerunner in how a modern city (based on modern principles) can correct and refocus development in areas that are in need. This town is not as big nor has the spatial limitations of denver which leaves me optimistic that we can get this town right. but we need to start at the core and work our way to the peripheral.
