Why are you equating smugness only with ppl in large cities?

BTW Chicago definitely gets my vote.

Plus you see one crane and there is one more building a tower at the downtown hospital, that is a level 2 trauma center!

You can apologize in public or private, its up to you..

umm...unless it has two campus locales CSU is only in Ft. Collins. However Pueblo is the 4th home of Colorado University.

Now, the very first thread on there is "pics of Pittsburgh. Look thru them and tell me how or why you think that dump Pueblo is similiar to Pittsburgh. Now you're trying tom compare it to NYC? Especaially the "skyline"? Paaaaaaaaaaaalease!

hey last i heard NYC was FAR AND AWAY from producing any sort of MEDAL OF HONOR recipient. Pueblo is called the "HOME OF THE HEROS" for a reason. get your facts straight before hating on an honest town like Pueblo.

2. The proposed Colorado energy park that will be 21,000 acers and the largest in the country.

BOISE, ID--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AEHI) signed an agreement with a representative of the proposed Colorado Energy Park (CEP) southeast of Pueblo, CO to negotiate contracts on land and water rights for multiple large advanced nuclear reactors. The current CEP site is over 21,000 acres and is valued at $83 million, including substantial water use rights. CEP can host a mixed portfolio of renewable energy including solar PV and CSP, wind, biomass, small-hydro and nuclear. AEHI will seek a complement of multiple clean energy providers to fully utilize the large site and share the nuclear plant's transmission, water, road and rail infrastructure. When fully developed, CEP will help meet the state's and region's growing demand for electricity. At CEP, AEHI will help the US achieve energy independence, and meet the goal of increasing sources of green energy to reduce CO2 and toxic emissions from the global environment. The CEP as a merchant site should be able to wield power east of the Rockies as needed to meet demand.

3 A new heavy industrial park south of town that even Colorado Springs cant match and we have companies like Vestas building the worlds largest wind turbine plant and possibly a foundry.

Colorado Springs economic development officials have listed alternative energy as a target industry for creating local jobs. Friday's announcement is not a loss for Colorado Springs, said David White, executive vice president of the Colorado Springs Economic Development Corp.

"Even though it would have been nice to attract this company into our region, the reality is we just don't have any rail sites. We don't have the kind of heavy industrial capabilities the city of Pueblo has," White said. "It's really a win for southern Colorado. Not everyone who works at this plant will live in Pueblo."

4. Large scale developments like Pueblo Springs Ranch that will have the states largest tech park.

oPueblo County - Historically, Pueblo County has experienced moderate population growth. This trend will change when the Pueblo Springs Ranch is complete. The 23,000-acre subdivision in northeast Pueblo County is expected to have about 75,000 households, or 200,000 people when completed. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk Project has begun to pay the economic dividends its creators intended. In August 2007, the new 44,000-square-foot headquarters of the Professional Bull Riders Association was dedicated, and new restaurants and other establishments have opened near the new building.

Why Pueblo? Due to our location and infrastructure. Denver and Pueblo are the only cities in the state to have all of the best infrastructure and look what happened to Denver last century now its our turn to grow.
dude you ROCK!

population got NOTHING to do with it. example: Atlantic City NJ has less than 40,000 people yet it has a VERY distinctive skyline. Here's another: Bellevue, Washington has just over 100,000 people yet it has a skyline to rival many moderately sized cities across the nation. Pueblo (last I heard) has roughly 120,000, but keep in mind that Denver overshadows EVERYTHING Colorado has, plus Pueblo hasn't been around nearly as long as a city like Chicago has, nor does Pueblo have the extra benefit of a massive lake to provide a port as extra means of income/jobs. With that in mind, do remember that the size of the city doesn't make a skyline, it's what the city has to offer.

well no. as a resident of a city less than 20 miles away from Boulder, all Boulder really has to offer is the Engineering College of Colorado University. If you want more info on Boulder just take a look around...you'll find PLENTY about it.

Pueblo is a run-down old industrial city that never grew like the others...
Sooo with that said, I felt bad for it and voted for it.
