I just want to say as a resident who built a brand new home in Stratmoor Valley you are all wrong and ignorant. There is nothing wrong over hear never had an issue. There are some older homes and you can tell which ones are rentals and which ones are owned sometimes, but if older homes make it a bad neighborhood then you all haven't lived anywhere near anything bad. I have lived here 2 years now and I love it. There is nothing wrong with the neighborhood.

I've always had the notion that if you are "good" people, and move into a "bad" neighborhood, the neighborhood becomes a better neighborhood. The converse is obviously also true...

Boy, somebody has a case of ostrich syndrome if I've ever seen it. Do yourself a favor, go to the CSPD website, pull up their crime maps, and see for yourself where the majority of crimes are committed and where most of the meth labs are concentrated.

Numbers don't lie. I've lived in both the Stratmoor valley, and Pikes Peak Park, near Circle/monterey. I came home one day, and the police had my street blocked off, because an 8 year old boy was gunned down in front of his house for a Sureno gang initiation. Stramoor, especially near B street/85-87 area is a nasty garbage hole. I lived near south academy for a brief period, just east of I-25, I had my house tagged in broad daylight, my truck stolen twice, my Harley once.

I don't care what you say, the Stratmoor valley is trash, all of it. Putting up new homes doesn't polish a turd.

"You are all wrong and ignorant" - how awesome is that? Clearly that is the case. Everyone else who has experienced it came to the same conclusion, but you felt differently and that makes us all ignorant. I meet ignorant people every day - and the best way to identify them is not by the fact that they concur with a diverse group of individuals about the relative safety of an area.

I would probably look elsewhere than Stratmoor Valley. I'm assuming you're Army: Stratmoor, along with some of the B-street corridor, have the typical "right off base" vibe of dumpy houses, no amenities and run down areas of pawn-shops, liquor stores, tatoo places etc. A little bit further out (toward Powers Blvd, or off Mesa Ridge for example) you will get newer construction and nicer areas for your dollar. What's it really worth being really close to work, if you have to worry about your car being broken into? I grew up in the Springs, the south side has plenty of nice areas.
