Too many people forget about the altitude in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Moving here will put you at 6,000+...It's not pleasant! My top five reasons to not more to CO:
1.) The educational system is one os the lowest nationwide.
2.) Poor health system in Colorado Springs/Shortage of special therapist
3.) Insurance rates go up. People here are really bad drivers.
4.) It's actually EXPENSIVE!
5.) and finally, the altitude.

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.
