What was/is wrong with it? I'm interested in Lafayette and Louisville because I believe the proximity to Boulder must elevate those areas somewhat higher/better than Broomfield...?

A number of years ago, Louisville was a sleeply town with older houses and a history of coal mining. Now it's total suburbia of growth with new houses, new shopping, etc. Lafayette seems to be going in the same directorion, but is not as far a long as Louisville.

Broomfield is big, so there are lots of options there. I have the same impression of housing prices (house prices for Louisvile are higher than in Broomfield), but you'd have to check that out for yourself.

Thanks for the information. What is the "culture" or feel of the three towns, Louisville, Lafeyette and Broomfield? Are they safe? I like the town of Boulder but prices are too high. I guess I am looking for charming in a sense.

As far as distinct culture of those towns compared to Boulder: they are all suburban and not "Boulder". The older sections of Louisville and Lafeyette have a sense of culture, but the newer parts feel like anywhere-USA. Marginally I'd say Louisville (right now) has a more consistently upper-middle class feel, Lafeyette is a bit more middle class and more hispanic flair, and Broomfield is all over the map.

You'd have to check out crime stats about safety. I have no problem with any of these town going around with my family and young children. If I was to by a house in one of them, based on saftey, I'd probably be swayed to Louisville... but it's really the neighborhood that would dominate that, not the town.
