There’s a reason Colorado natives are proud of their home state, and Colorado’s popularity is only increasing. Our state continues to gain tens of thousands of residents annually. Perhaps this influx also contributes to Colorado Springs’ seven-year-high for economic growth in 2017. Today, we’ll tour some of the most attractive up and coming neighborhoods that are emerging in Colorado Springs to accommodate our state’s excellent growth rates.
