....welcome to City-Data. Hope you make it back to Denver area.

For more info on Arvada, go the main Forum page for Colorado and click on Search this Forum, enter search-term ARVADA, click on Show Posts, then hit enter. Up will pop ALL the info on Arvada which is already here, and there is bound to be some. This will save you a lot of time, and the regulars here won't have to key in the same set of answers again.

Also try the main city-data home page, go to Colorado, then select the city for population demographics and much data.

s/Mike

Default Parker

hi there,

we just visited parker a few weeks ago and fell in love with it. We're in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. Great open space, nice people and the price is right for a home. Small town feel too!

Good Luck

There are some very nice places in Parker to call home. My favorite new home community is by Village Homes, it has a community center with an outdoor pool, lots of open space, trails...good schools.

Wink have you thought of Brighton?

I lived in Thornton several years ago, and all of that area up north of Denver was starting to really grow. But Brighton was still in easy commuting distance, but small town feeling. You might check it out...

Default drilling?

We are also moving from Long Island, and were all set to buy a house in Creekside - Erie. However, we just read about the 100 ft gas drill that went up near Erie Commons, and the home builder we were about to sign with may be going bankrupt! So is drillling in people's backyards just a common part of life in Colorado? Isn't anyone worried about the health effects?

michele2714 -Just read about it for the first time myself... It appears the drilling will be done within 40 days. We'll be there next month to witness it first-hand. Not very excited about it, but a few weeks won't matter. Good luck to you!

I think the wells will stay after the few weeks of drilling, but I was more worried about where they will drill next.....

Default firestone

I havent been to FIrestone yet...though I arrived to Colorado before the storm, now I am sitting tight waiting to venture out...but the schools did not get as good of ratings as the others on great schools.net...just a note...

Another IMPORTANT NOTE: the friendly people. I am so impressed. I have had anumber of interactions with random people and I feel heart warming going on....One lady even stopped to ask if I was ok when I was lost in the blizzard...She told me how to get back to Denver...Thank You Colorado...

Colorado is great. I live in Ft. Collins now,very safe and good schools. Loveland is also a good area. I have lived in Northern CO for many years now and the only area in northern co I would stay away from is Greeley and Evans. If you want to live in a small town, you could check out Windsor.
