Re: “UCCS inspires new thinking

The college students of today are the 'young professionals' of tomorrow. The ones grabbing a degree in one hand and a ticket out of town in the other. Often for just as far away as Boulder, Greeley, or Fort Collins.

The thinking exhibited here seems a 'win-win'. Drawing more attention and people to the downtown area - providing a moderate boost to core merchants - perhaps might even lead to development of downtown housing of the loft type seemingly of great appeal to those who would wish to both work and live downtown.

A more 'current decade downtown' may be the start to lure business from outside the state to not only Colorado Springs - but to the downtown area. The increased transit proposed from downtown to UCCS could also encourage more trips by riders along the route to shop downtown.

Perhaps it is time to engage the younger generation in planning and send the Downtown Solutions Team back to the El Paso Club for a nap.
