Yes, there are numerous Park 'n' Ride lots throughout Evergreen, Conifer, Pine, and Morrison. The buses are reliable.

An AWD car to commute is a very good idea, but a FWD with good snow tires should work fine for everyday in-town driving in Evergreen.

Evergreen is a very nice and clean community. However Kittridge and Indian Hills are more rural although from Indian Hills you can be in Morrison quickly. A good friend lives off of Parmalee Gulch there and he can be to Home Depot, Target, etc. in about 12-15 minutes.

Any of those towns will be a huge improvement over MPLS.

Not that we need any more people here but western MT and North Idaho have tons of lakes, plus mountains, but without the mosquitos and humidity!

If storefronts start coming into the area to support Candelas, I could potentially see Coal Creek Canyon getting more developed as well. Could be interesting.

Yeah, apparently Candelas is supposed to have a Town Center (shopping, dining, and entertainment) in the future which would put all those amenities a 10 minute drive down the canyon, even if the canyon itself wasn't further developed. Jeffco also recently made a $6.75M open space land purchase in the canyon and will be developing more trails. Property values are much more affordable in CCC than other foothill communities so now is the time to invest, haha.

No rush though needed. I'm enjoying the very little traffic, Amazon Prime has free two day delivery just like everywhere else, Walmart has their "To Go" service for most groceries (order online; free pickup on the way home from work), and a scenic 26 minute commute with no freeways to Broomfield is hard to beat.

I can't see Candelas getting a shopping center anytime soon. They are building a King Sooper at the Indiana intersection, but the master plan has for office buildings and all kinds of crap. When you consider that Flatirons is over 50% vacant I can't see many storefront business thriving for that small of an area. They say the Jeffco HW will be built, but that's 10 yrs away if that ever happens. Candelas lost the apartments which is good and the custom homes builder took over those lots. But living in CCC isn't a bad option if you want to be close to things in a rural setting. I consider it from time to time.
