    I would like to comment anonymously.

    A decade I knew someone intimately who worked in Pueblo West involved in its civil engineering. On a daily basis I felt like an unpaid psychotherapist for this person helping alleviate or displace copius amounts of irony, one might even say cubic-yards of irony. Once advertised as a Planned Community beneath the surface it seemed anything but sticking to a plan. Changing these as they had made for any number of hi-jinks that were either laughably temporary to permanently upsetting. I too in my trade also had to work out there as a painter.

    I don’t get Pueblo West, I guess. It seemed so desolate at times. It’s just where I had to work. It seems such a contrived place, a bedroom community then, whatever that was. You had to drive quite a ways to the two places that had convinience stores. There weren’t any public spaces. So…the place seemed anti-social. It just followed that a certain kind of anti-social people wanted to live there. And of course it was cheaper for sales tax, plots to build a house.

    Perhaps it’s the monoculture or lack of natural vegetation that really drives me insane about it too. People would plant Aspen or willow trees and water the heck out of them and try to transform it into something it is not. Why not just move to where the trees are located? The dust and wind also drive me bats. The shale made the place look like Mars in spots.

    I don’t hate the place, but I sure don’t like it. I kinda can stand the all night long clanking noises of the steel mill. They become reassuring of enterprise and human continuity. So it costs more to live and build in Pueblo, so what? You get what you pay for.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. It may cost less, short term, in PW for developers and home buyers but it costs all of Pueblo City and County more in the long run. Best, Justin
