Thank you so much for all the responses! It seems pretty unanimous that Woodland Park is not the way to go. I knew that there was only 1 way in and out, but I don't have any experience with making the trip east/west across town. I didn't even think about that.

I have kids in school, so a short commute is pretty much out of the question due to the quality of schools in D49. I will concentrate more on the Black Forest area and take another look at Monument.

Question about the Woodmoor area, though. I read in a thread a month or so ago that there are water issues in Woodmoor and that water rates are going to rise. Ladyjag, or anyone else, can you provide any info on that? How much are they going up? How much is water now? How much is it in the springs?

Thanks again!

Navypilotwife, check out Pleasant View Estates. Beautiful neighborhood of mostly 1/2 acre treed lots near Fox Run Regional Park (Gleneagle/Northgate area). Homes are a range of older and newer. Excellent schools (Discovery Canyon Campus for grades K-12 in D20.) A lot closer to Shriever than Monument/Woodmoor. My husband drove out to Shriever every day for 5 years when we lived there. Took him between 45 and 60 minutes - but it was a beautiful, peaceful drive. His only complaint was that he had to drive "into the sun" on the way out in the morning, and again on the way back home in the evening. Not much you can do about that though!

The water issues have been solved by the purchase of JV Ranch's water rights, which is said to increase our water bill by $50 a month. Most of the homes in our housing area do not water their lawn, (we don't), because unless grass is planted, most people have prairie grass. Therefore, our water bill is not a lot to begin with.
