Pueblo - Colorado Springs. The Springs is bigger but Pueblo is more important to the region, mainly due to location.

Pueblo totally sucks balls. How is Pueblo more important than CO Springs? CO Springs is home to the Air Force Academy and NORAD, that automatically makes them more important than Pueblo.

If you are speaking from a military stand point then the Springs is one of the most important cities in the country.

However, I am speaking from a regional shopping and business stand point. Most people from southern Colorado shop in Pueblo as all the main roads lead to Pueblo, Highway 50 for the major east - west route and I-25 for the north south route. That is proven by the fact Pueblo county is a sales tax net gainer, that means more people shop in Pueblo then the population would indicate. That is also why Pueblo is going to get the federal court and not the Springs.

People in Colorado Springs say Colorado Springs - Pueblo just like in Minneapolis they say Minneapolis - St Paul and people in Pueblo say Pueblo - Colorado Springs just like people in St Paul say St Paul - Minneapolis. In fact people in St Paul consider themselves more cosmopolitan and call Minneapolis their largest suburb. That is how I feel about the Springs. Also, the local stations do both, just depends on the station.

I suppose technically you are right but I will never put Colorado Springs before Pueblo! Plus they are not that much bigger then Pueblo and we are growing so I suspect the gap will shrink as growth tends to hit cities un evenly but over time balance out.

You can see that is how we grew. First Pueblo had a growth spurt and was bigger then the Springs did and became bigger now there is more development planed for Pueblo is the next 20 years, in fact in the latest census Pueblo is starting to grow faster then the Springs.

Are you on crack? St. Paul is the more ghetto city of the Twin Cities. Minneapolis is the slightly larger, more cosmopolitan city. And they're only separated by the Mississippi River, not over 40 miles like Pueblo and Colorado Springs.

The twin cities are more developed then the Pueblo/ Colorado Springs area but they were not always that way and had to start somewhere. That is how our region is now and we are growing. Here is a map of the largest development that brings the city if Pueblo to the El Paso county line:






The developer is a Las Vegas developer who is planing on building the states largest tech park called the Pueblo Springs Tech park. Here is what CU Boulder has to say about it and our downtown:

Pueblo County - Historically, Pueblo County has experienced moderate population growth. This trend will change when the Pueblo Springs Ranch is complete. The 23,000-acre subdivision in northeast Pueblo County is expected to have about 75,000 households, or 200,000 people when completed. The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk Project has begun to pay the economic dividends its creators intended. In August 2007, the new 44,000-square-foot headquarters of the Professional Bull Riders Association was dedicated, and new restaurants and other establishments have opened near the new building.

Pueblo is also seen as more urban as the downtown is larger and the Springs is seen as more suburban as the city covers more land area then even the city of Denver.
