More residents are moving to urban centers across Colorado, especially in the Denver-Boulder area, while the number of Hispanics in the state soared, according to 2010 Census data released Wednesday.

We will see a trend toward re-population of cities and decline of suburbs and "bedroom communities" as commutes become more time consuming and costly. In time, the suburbs will become the new ghettos.

No, suburbs grew faster this decade.They are the US future because city becomes too expensive (housing), too polluated, too much crime.

That was yesterday. America's last fling with cheap energy allowed that. That's over. And the folly of ever-expanding suburbs is about to come crashing down--as it should.

They tried housing project in the 60's. Didn't work out too well unless you're a crack dealer.

This ignorant article suggests that "downtown" (whatever that means) is growing fastest.

And yet, if you look at the data, it's Weld, Douglas, Elbert, Arapahoe, and Adams counties that really grew over the last decade. It's not urban centers like Denver, it's not old suburbs like Jeffco, and it's certainly not Boulder (whatever Boulder is).

The reality is that people want safe, clean, family-centered neighborhoods like those you'll find in the suburbs and exurbs and Denver, so it's not surprising that it's those areas--not the city itself--that's growing quickly.

Or we could just allow the methods of natural selection to run their course.
Those with the means to commute from the suburbs to city/work areas, whether by retaining loads of cash for fuel, or bicycle/public transit.
While those still living in denial, but running low on resources fade away on their own.
Hey, 10-20 mile bicycle commutes never killed anyone....did they?
Not I anyway.

Anyway on a more serious matter, I could see the draw of Colorado and its metro areas.
One, I've been getting routed to and through there on a weekly basis and I find the entire area extremely truck-friendly when it comes to getting deliveries and pickups performed.
Truck-stops near the city-centers, no one giving a second thought towards why that 80' vehicle is rolling past the house.

I'm just beginning to realize how accommodating the mountain-states in general are towards accepting persons from all walks of employment.
