Thanks for your response. I hear you about the flatlands- my wife grumbles that we might as well move to Kansas!

Lac Amora has nice sized houses, but it is an older subdivision, for Colorado anyway. There is nothing wrong with that except that you might find that most of the kids are older, too. I would suggest driving around and looking for evidence of kids the ages of yours: toys in the yard and driveway, moms walking babies in strollers, whatever. The other problem with Lac Amora from my perspective is that it is on the west side of Highway 287, sort of separate from a lot of the rest of Broomfield. If you have small children, it will be a long time before you let them ride a bike to a friend's house east of 287.

Default Broomfield Neighborhoods

Hi, we're looking for a neighborhood to move to in Broomfield. We're looking for the pretty typical stuff, low crime, nice neighborhood, both older and newer is fine. Any suggestions? Any areas to avoid?

It depends on how much you want to spend. Broomfield has a mix of old and new, high and low prices.

We're renting the first year maybe two since we have a daughter that will be a jr in high school this year. We are renting to give us time to find an area that we want to buy at. So I am looking for a good neighborhood for a rental. I want to spend no more than $1600 a month on the rental.

You should be able to do that. You'll have to come out and look at these properties yourself. If you do find a house to buy outside of BHS attendance area, it is usually not too difficult to open enroll, especially if the reason is to stay at your previous school.

Have you tried looking on Craigslist? Or other classified ads online? That's usually a fairly good indicator at what is being offered for a particular going rate. I think $1600 a month could get you a fairly sizeable home (2500 square feet +) in a well-kept suburban neighborhood with other kids your daughter's age. I think there is a rental a couple of blocks from my house actually. (I'll check tomorrow morning when I walk the dog and let you know.)

You are wise not to trust the reviews you read. You never know the reviewer's agenda. Disclaimer: my kids went to Monarch; did gymnastics at Broomfield, so those are the schools I am knowledgable about, moreso MHS than BHS.

Both are good schools. BHS has a more diverse student body. MHS is more "preppy". MHS is fairly new, opened in 1998 with my oldest daughter as a freshman. BHS is a much older school. The present building was built in, I believe, 1959. BHS is about to undergo an extensive renovation starting in January, hopefully.

I have friends whose kids go/went to Legacy, plus a lot of the kids my daughters did club gymnastics with went there. Good school, by all reports. SL I know very little about. Appears to be a good school. Is located in a decent area, so there shouldn't be any problems with it.

Default May be relocating. What do you know about Broomfield?

How are the schools? Family friendly? Progressive? How is the traffic?

Thanks!
