2009-08-21 Liz Wageck With the focus on cycling in CO, I would love to see Colorado Springs embrace it more--with more paved bike paths and extended shoulders (esp. through areas like Black Forest) with painted bike lanes. I spent some time recently cycling the bike paths connecting communities in Summit County and similar from Aspen to Glenwood this summer. How about similar here with a path encircling the city? Make it easier to get around on a road bike. How about paved paths to Denver? To Pueblo and other areas? Motorists would no doubt appreciate seeing some of the cycling enthusiasts moving from roadways to bike paths. Make this a beautiful cycling mecca--yeah! Then more cycling events sponsored by various groups could bring visitors in, etc. The natural beauty. I've recently moved back after many years away. Feels good to be back to a welcoming community.
2009-08-21 Micha City wide ordiance about light pollution. Business lights that are necessary for security should be on motion sensor's. The only lights should be street lights. The EMPTY car dealer's down south bright lights pollute the whole city. Light pollution is a BIG problem. The city would look much nicer without so much light pollution. The scenery and the parks, however a lot of parks aren't safe because of the bad neighborhoods nearby. When I can help on a project, and feel that idea's are important
2009-08-20 Dana Haefner A peaceful, culturally rich community which has implemented measures to protect its biggest asset: the natural environment. A Gaia-centered concept which includes everyone with good social services. The natural environment. The formation of a Jewish/Muslim women's group in which we talk about issues large and small in our lives and try to think of ways to take our spirit of peace, understanding, and spirituality to the larger world.
2009-08-19 Nancy Poe I would like to see the city grant major tax credits for the establishment of a "Hollywood in Colorado" to bring in artists and producers from Caflifornia. We have land available east of Colorado Springs to build "Hollywood" and many private parties and agencies (profit and non-profit) that could support the building and sets. Most outdoor settings from the sand dunes to Denver to the mountains and ski slopes are available within 100 miles of Colorado Springs. We are the perfect location for "Hollywood in Colorado". If we build it, they will come. Natural surroundings, clean air and water, and climate. Right now!
2009-07-26 Lyn Segina To grow recreational activities around nature and link energy efficient transportation with the city and surrounding communities. The natural beauty of the area and outdoor parks. Waking up after my 1st night in CS in December of 2005, and seeing the snow falling.

2009-07-20 Jan Erickson My vision is to have a light rail system between Colorado Springs and Denver/Boulder. To develop more clean energy and give credits to companies who use their roof tops for solar energy. To keep our parks and ponds clean and continue to develop open space and trails. To have our independent businesses thrive. To control urban sprawl. To value our teachers and support our public schools--to be known for quality education for all children. To be a dream city that other cities want to emulate, The beauty, the weather, the open space, clean air, the diversity. There are several--From enjoying one of our parks, to supporting a community organization to, volunteering as a tutor, to attending a concert at Colorado College.

2009-07-17 Spencer Kalata Since academy boulevard is such a main thoroughfare through the city, It should be beautified or made to stand out in some way?? also, the area on dublin blvd (between academy blvd and Union) needs to be kept up better regarding weeds,sidewalks, etc. number of trails for hiking and biking etc. the friendly warm welcome I received upon moving here
