An open letter (subject to additions and edits)
Dear Colorado springs,
If you want to improve the airport – quit focusing on people leaving! Push tourism. Revamp downtown, bring homogeneity with the north and east side with the rest of the city. If it’s religious tourism you want, make it happen! Support *gasp* the Bach plan for a stadium downtown. The solution is not in encouraging people to leave, but encouraging them to visit! We have breweries, we have music, we have a scene, build it and they will come! Let’s move away from this isolationism lest we become a tumble weed in the wind. This is a beautiful town with a lot to offer, it’s time to quit cowering in Denver’s shadow and clinging to the past. It is time to move forward, time to change, time to grow.
A Tourist Stuck for a Long While
