Yes, what brightdoglover said. I'd like to move to CO, thus adding to the population, so I can't say that I'd like the number to go down.

There are towns which apparently could benefit from growth, more people, more jobs. Others are probably too crowded.

No, because then that would mean we're doing something wrong/moving backwards

It is 2016. Wasn't someone supposed to be living in Arizona by now?

It's amazing to me that people find ways to blame so many others for their problems.

What do you want Colorado to end up like Michigan?

I am fine with the current population, although I wish growth would slow to a more reasonable rate so that the state could afford to keep up with the infrastructure needs and this over inflated demand for housing would subside to a reasonable rate of demand still allowing appreciation but without the costs making a large portion of the population house poor just buying or renting a basic property.

No. When the steel industry crashed, and Pittsburgh lost population, it was a mess, throughout the whole region, the whole state actually. You think it's problematic to have to build new schools, try having to close some for lack of students. And so forth. It's not a pretty sight. I remember going back to my hometown to visit in October 1982. The headline in the Sunday paper, the Beaver County Times was the location of the various food banks in the county and who could use them.

Why? And by what kicking people out? Make everyone leave and give the state back to the Ute tribe?

Nope as that would negatively impact my real estate holdings.
