This is based on my personal experiences of driving to and fro and seeing many foreclosed homes open back up and thankfully get restored. New builds are at a stand still but buying and selling looks like its on the mend.

The growth in the rest of the county, Mesa, Cc/Rye/Beulah is minimal as usual. All of the growth has been happening in PDub, north side of Pueblo, south side a bit, down town a bit.
Good post...there were 2 houses near me that went into foreclosure and both have been bought.
(Pueblo West)

Whoever thought of the name 'Pueblo West' was dyslexia to begin with. That's like calling North Carolina 'Carolina North' or 'Dakota South'. Should of been West Pueblo, just my 2 cents.

No logic its the name of a town not the side of town (the city does have a west side or west Pueblo). So I think saying Pueblo West sounds better then saying West Pueblo.

I agree with Joss on this. Pueblo West sounds pretty natural to me, as does Denver West.

I first drove through Pueblo West in about 1976 or 1977 when we were on our way to the Royal Gorge. We stopped in at the new Best Western Pueblo West Inn off of McCulloch. They were serving all-you-can-eat King crab legs for 12 bucks. Although I was just 10 or 11, they cut me off at 3 lbs. YOU GO HOME NOW! YOU BEEEEN HEYA 4 HOUR! YOU EAT AW THE FISH!

My mom moved there when I was 3 and I went to Pueblo West Elementary School for kindergarten, 1st and 2nd. Then I moved in with my dad and grandparents in town. Back then there was not much there and I can remember when they made highway 50 4 lanes and now it will be 6. Also at the time my mom worked at Transamerica Title and was one of the ones who typed up the contract for Pueblo West in the late 60's.

I honestly don't see the point in changing the name if they are not interested in a vote to incorporate. I can see wanting their own identity if they were incorporating. But if the status quo isn't set to change anytime soon I don't see any purpose in renaming the place. As a CDP it'll never be considered more than a suburb of Pueblo. If it incorporated and made an effort to establish its own identity it could potentially rival Pueblo someday.

I agree Josseppie.....West Pueblo, East Pueblo, South Pueblo, North Pueblo are all parts of the city...

Regardless of whether or not the name is changed, it will always be known as Pueblo West/P-Dub to the natives. It's like the Broncos' stadium - regardless of the corporate name stamped on the outside, it will always be known to everyone as "Mile High."
