Welcome to the "New and Improved" DreamCity 2020 web-site that has been completely overhauled and enhanced to provide a wide variety of new tools and collaborative communications services to support the ongoing vision and mission of the DreamCity 2020 partners.

We have created this new web-site to support the ongoing communications needs of our Champions and to faciliate the direct and immediate participation by the general public to join in the discussions and participate in ongoing DreamCity Initiatives and Events that will help shape and form the future of Colorado Springs.

If you have suggestions and ideas on how we can make this web-site more responsive to the communities needs, you can register as a user, dive-in to the blogs, forums, or comment on the many posts and articles from a wide variety of users to make your mark and make a difference.

The Colorado Springs Gazette ran a great article yesterday showing what Dream City 2020 is doing throughout the community.

A couple quotes I like:

“We haven’t quite figured out what we’re going to be when we grow up,” said Sallie Clark, vice chair of the El Paso County Board of Commissioners. “It’s kind of like being in college and not knowing what career path you’re taking. It’s that strange adolescent time when you don’t know what you want to do.”

City Councilwoman Jan Martin was singing the same tune, with different words.

“If our community can catch a vision, there’s nothing we can’t accomplish, but we haven’t had a vision in the recent past,” Martin said. “We haven’t been striving to go anywhere.”

Kira P. says of her experience with Dream City 2020:

I am involved in this project because I love learning from others and hearing unique perspectives. I’ve lived in Colorado Springs for only a year and half and the best way to get to know a city is to immerse yourself in grassroots projects. I also believe citizens have a responsibility for the future of our community. We can not passively wait for city officials to decide our direction, but must take initiative ourselves. People are powerful when they are bound together by a shared vision and dream.

My vision for the Pikes Peak region is a community where people care for their neighbors and accept each other for who we are as individuals. We all bring a different flavor to this area, such as a religious or spiritual background, culture, dedication to the armed services, a love for volunteering, and advocacy on behalf of an issue or group of people. I want to see us consider opposing viewpoints and learn about an unknown aspect of our community. I believe people can do this when they work together to solve community problems or tackle challenging issues. We need to teach our children how to get civically involved and necessary civic skills as a young age so they can get involved as well.
