Was in Colorado Springs this spring and it has really been affected by the economy. Street lights turned off, parks closed, swimming pools were not to open, streets in awful condition, lots of closed businesses, libraries will close if the bond doesn't pass.
I lived in CS for 31 years and it was so sad for me to see this thriving gorgeous city so depressed. If you are going there and have a job that is a different situation as the city will come back but probably will take a while. Great schools Academy D#20 is awesome, housing is affordable, lots to do, traffic is not as bad as Denver.
