I'd like to see a wall put up around the city and make people prove they have the means to support themselves before they're allowed to move here. One can dream.

I can't name just one thing. Get rid of the bums, ship them all off to Portland where they belong. Bulldoze the Olympic Museum nobody asked for. Hope the housing market implodes in on itself so things can return to normal and I can laugh all the way to the foreclosure auction.

Oh, and bring back Red Top Burgers!!!

I'd really like to see more high rises downtown. Its high time Colorado Springs got a proper skyline.

Some of these are interesting.

I wouldn't really change anything.

I'd prefer to live in Phoenix, or somewhere a bit cheaper where it didn't snow, but was still a mid to large sized city with adequate employment, and not Las Vegas or New Mexico....or anywhere in the South. :/

Other than that...meh. There's pros here that are good enough to take it worth it, that wouldn't exist without the cons.

A flying saucer that hovers over the city and zaps bad drivers (tailgaters, speeders, lane changers) all the way to Kansas.

I'd like a coffee shop where scantily clad women serve me a espresso.

You can make that change. Mike moved to Phoenix.
