Re: “Rags to ... Rodeo Drive?

As someone who lives in the Stratton Meadows/Southgate area I have mixed feelings about this venture. This is one area where hard working lower income people are tring to keep the neighborhood nice and can still afford to live in a decent home. Everyone sane wants to see less crime. But when I drive downtown on Nevada I see empty new townhomes, vacant lofts and blank storefronts, I wonder how much more high end chain retail and cosmopolitan housing Colorado Springs needs. City's are ashamed of their working poor and seem to lust after billion dollar convention centers, million dollar lofts and spendy shops that cater to such a small segment of the population. As an underemployed overeducated local I just want to go to a nice clean park, feel safe, and shop at an affordable independent store and know my tax dollars support that concept. One can always dream.
