Most areas of town are fine, save for some sketchiness in the SE corner of town.

Best if you tell us where you'll be working and/or your budget for rent.

Hi there- We just moved here due to orders to Schriever AFB. We've lived in a small town in Montana are wholes lives and have never had to think twice about where to live or what school to put our kids into. Were currently staying on Peterson AFB until we find our house- We are in the process of purchasing a brand new home located right near Hancock Expressway and S. Powers. I've researched my heart out and I'm still skeptical. Being from a verrry small town I'm trying to be cautious.

Anyone have any input on living in this area? Two small children to think about-

Thanks a lot!

The neighborhood should be fine there, particularly if it is newer construction, less so as you get further from Powers and closer to Hancock/Mission Trace area. I'm guessing elementary would be Soaring Eagles? I think that's okay, too. But I'm not as comfortable about middle/high school for that area.

That area is fine. I know a couple people (I work at Schriever as well) that have built a house in that area and they've had no big issues. Where abouts in MT? I was stationed at Malmstrom for 3 years.

Colorado Springs is one of the safest cities in Colorado it barely has any crime so im sure any part of the city would be a good place to live.

Default Wondering if anyone still uses this forum??

My family and I are relocating to Co Springs by early fall and don't know much about the area. I was wondering if some kind soul on here would let me post addresses of homes we are considering and let me know if they are in a decent or "not so good" area. I would GREATLY appreciate it, I'm trying to get the best fit for my family but stay within our budget. Thanks in Advance

Or find a Realtor that will tell you the truth...ours told us where to not look. Its technically against the Realtor's oath but you know a buyers agent wants you to be happy. [ mod cut ]

Wink Young and moving

So I am currently 21 and wanting to move to COS. I really love the area. My grandparents have lived there longer then I have been alive. I currently live in Texas.I plan to move up in the fall. My only problem is where are some decent apartments in COS? It will be only myself and my cat. I really don't care for crime but I told my Father I would stay away from the bad areas. As well where are some good locations for jobs? I need to start putting in some applications so when i come down in September i can actually have interviews. i would really love some tips, thanks!
