And in other parts of town you're saying nobody harasses employees in parking lots and no buildings ever go on lockdown? Because I've lived in the neighborhoods you all are referring to all the way from fountain to rockrimmon, and the only differences I've seen are architecture and diversity. Personally I enjoy diversity and classic looking old buildings so I enjoy the southeast neighborhoods alot more.

If you want city amenities but lower crime, think about Falcon. In the 70s it was a crossroad. Today it has about 20,000 people (in and nearby), three shopping centers (including Wal-Mart), three rec centers. A new library will open in Sept. Housing costs vary widely as do lot sizes (from postage stamp to 5-acre). Lower taxes because it's in the county. If you're looking for a house, the zip is 80831. Plenty of homes for sale as well as rental. No apartment buildings here yet, tho.
