I just have not heard any 2008 numbers yet. Either way I agree that the Springs is a major city.

It doesn't feel like one tho!

My husband is considering a job in South Fork. I don't want to live in a town that small, so we will have a residence in Colorado Springs (where the kids will go to school) and also have a residence in South Fork. We currently live in Florida and have never been to Colorado. We have two teenage girls and want to live in a good scool district and an area of Colorado Springs that would be more convenient to commute to South Fork. I prefer homes and neighborhoods with character and would probably want to rent for awhile before making a commitment to buy. Any suggestions?

Well, if you live toward the south end of the Springs, as in, say, Fountain, your commute will probably be about 45 minutes less than if you live at the north end, around, say, Monument. If you lived in Pueblo or Canon City, you'd save maybe another half hour on the commute. Either way, you're looking at a commute of 3-4 hours each way. As for the south end of the Springs, good districts would include D12 (Cheyenne Mountain), D8 (Fountain) and D3 (Widefield). D12 has the highest test scores of these 3, but personally I don't think that proves it is a better district, there are other factors involved. You could find several nice older homes with character in D12, and a few in D8, and a few in D3. Those homes will cost more in D12, generally speaking.
