I agree with you on high tech jobs, that is the main reason I am happy about the Pueblo Springs Ranch and the tech park. It will be the largest in the state, I was told that by Pueblo's planing director, and the company really wants to bring some major tech companies here, I was told that by pedco. There should be a public meeting on it soon, I will go and post here what I find out.

As far as the Vestas we are the production part of the wind turbines. They bought 800 acers and right now only used 200 acers for their 700,000 square foot facility, that is the largest of its kind in the world. The rest will go to the companies they use, such as suppliers etc., who will be located by the plant. So in the end it will mean a lot more then the 550 jobs we are getting now, why they state and city gave more incentives to Vestas for this facility then the ones going to Brighten or Windsor.

I know I am a optimist but from the things I hear going on I think the next 11 years will be an exiting time to be in Pueblo. Just to give you one example I have heard from the highest officials in Pueblo, sorry I cant say who, that Pueblo has a 70% chance of getting a major corporate headquarters next year and they will build two office towers one 23 and one 16 stories high.
You sound like Eeyore from Skyscraper forum!

I truly believe in beauty from ashes. From the ashes of what was seemingly defeat many times in this city will emerge a beautiful city. We should really be praying for the city officials, state officials, for the businesses that are deciding to make Pueblo their permanent home, & don't forget the citizens of Pueblo. I am overwhelmed with joy & excitement for the bright future of Pueblo & it's citizens. We will see you all in June 2009. Pueblo Family Church coming soon! Growing in Faith, Family, & Service. God bless you all.
Pastor Bill,

You should like it here, we are a friendly community that is the perfect mix of urbanism and suburbia and we have the "Goldie lox" weather, not to hot and not to cold lol. If you have any questions I will be more then happy to try and answer them for you :-).

If you or anyone is interested in another site that talks about Pueblo and our largest suburb Colorado Springs (just kidding Springs residents! ) there is a good page on skyscrapers forum, here is the link:

It looks like I'll need to bring some good ol Kansas City BBQ tho. I didn't see any BBQ joints in town. Any suggestions?
BBQ?? Yes! We've got that now! Pricey but good! Dad's Barbeque on Prairie just a couple blocks north of Pueblo Blvd on the east side of the street!

I went there for some chicken ( a bit overdone...tough, but tasted ok) and brisket and beans! I just wanted some quick takeout for dinner and didn't want to spend more than 20. They accidently sent me home with a rack of ribs! OMG! It costed 24 bucks for that and I squared up with them, but man those ribs were good! Had the babybacks too. It's like 18 bucks for half a rack of those.

The cats don't usually beg for food when we're eating, but those things were about to bite our fingers off!
