Pueblo is more industrial then we are ghetto. Yes we have are bad areas of town, every major city does, but I love the rustic and industrial look of Pueblo and am glad we kep most of the historic buildings instead of torn them down like most other cities that grew in the 1960's and built their 60's tastic buildings instead.

And the roads still aren't plowed in Pueblo or Pueblo west, explains part of the reason its so cheap; not providing essential services for public safety.

If you love CHAMA, NM as much as I do, than think Trinidad, Co. Much cheaper than Chama, not as harsh of a Winter and right in the neck of woods to be. Been, looking at land near Trinidad and am quite please of their prices. it is about an hour South of Pueblo too. Stationed once in Pueblo and wasn't too much of a fan of it because it was too far from the mountains but other than that just fine.

Haven't seen too many people mention Chama before, but we just love it. I spend several weeks in the fall there every year in the same cabin.

If I didn't love Trinidad so much, I'd probably be in Pueblo.

Deb, your a lucky to live in such a nice town. We will be retiring in a few years and selling a ranch which might take a little while to sell. Anyway, I've look at a lot of real estate in and near Trinidad and get confused on property taxes. Been mostly looking around the Weston area. Is there a set guide to property taxes and what is your sells tax. Does Trinidad have a grocery tax? Thanks, Debbie at Bountiful

Yeah, isn't it great?

If you don't like the snow, you can sit at home and watch Penn & Teller... or you can do something about it.

Haha, I gotta buy myself one of those
I like the snow I just dont like having to drive in it when it could easily have been cleared.

Also west 16th st is not at all ghetto at least compared to the ghettos im used to. It's a very nice neighorboorhood. This isnt like some parts of Mattapan in Boston or New York city where its unsafe to leave your home at any point of the year.

There is no way Pueblo west could plow all the roads if it wanted to. They have just as many roads as Pueblo with only 35,000 people. Most of the roads are dirt. If you live there that is one thing that you have to understand.

BTW I hear Colorado Springs cut back on snow pllowing too. So its not just a Pueblo issue.
