I went to colorado with my father after a year in new york, i hated ny, i loved colorado even though i just stayed there for a few months, in a hotel, i dont remember much other than that...
#Colleen Shreve on Apr 11, 2016 :
Hi David Hood, I dislike northern OKLAHOMA STATE TOO! What do you think about Colorado springs cost of living? I don't think that it's higher than OK. I'm watching it now and saving money to move there. I'm going to have to lighten my load here, looking at 2-5 years before I can feasibly move. Would you like to stay in touch about your experience with moving to the springs?
#Dave Hood on Mar 05, 2016 :
So I'm thinking about moving to Colorado Springs,Co. I'm in Lubbock, TX. And hate it here. I love the outdoors. I was thinking about moving to Portland, Or. But not really not. I like CO. Any thoughts. Thanks

I am looking to move to Colorado Springs your stats are good but I would like a break down of the utilities.

I am interested in buying a town home or patio home. What would the average cost of each utility be for these type of homes?
If you can could you break it down per item , Electricity,heat,water,garbage,cable,phone,DSL,waste,gas etc.

Mladen, thank you for the information on how to change to imperial. That makes the site even more helpful. Brads missing out. But with an attitude like that I don't know that he's someone we'd want around anyways.
Thanks again.
#Jackie on Jan 04, 2014 :
This site has been so helpful, I'm planning on moving to colorado in 2015. Very excited! Thank you!!
#Mladen on Apr 14, 2013 :
Brad, good news to you, you can get data at this website displayed using imperial units, look at the link named "Switch to imperial measurement units" near the currency bar. Thank you.. P.S. We'd appreciate all new imputs for Colorado Springs!
#Brad on Apr 14, 2013 :
Your statistics are great and seem to be accurate when compared to other sites, but I buy my gas and milk in gallons. We are in America and dont use metric measurements. Sorry, I'll stick to sites where i dont need to convert every stat.
