Starting on this issue’s front page, senior writer John Hazlehurst reports that the idea of a dynamic new Summit House atop Pikes Peak has progressed from a dusty concept to the brink of reality, with a request for proposals going out for design in a matter of weeks. When you look at renderings, not just… Continue Reading Summit House – worth the wait

Airport loses again; no more D.C.

Comments Off

Next weekend, on Sept. 20 to be exact, Colorado Springs will endure another bad-news story about airline service as United shuts down its nonstop flights between here and Washington’s Dulles International Airport. At least this news is no surprise. United made the announcement in mid-May, saying the flights (one each way, on smaller regional jets)… Continue Reading Airport loses again; no more D.C.

The year’s most overblown story

Comments Off

One month ago, the most controversial new business of 2014 in El Paso County opened its doors to overflow crowds. Naysayers had insisted the business would cause a major disruption to the area and perhaps even affect the future of our military presence in the Pikes Peak region.

Every year, several dozen people from Colorado Springs take what’s well known as the Regional Leaders Trip, visiting cities to see what they have that we might replicate.

Beware of Pueblo’s rising ire

Comments Off

As our elected leaders continue finding new ways to avoid cooperating on important issues, there’s a growing sense that perhaps doing nothing beats making a serious mistake. So, once again, we’re hearing rumbles that the stormwater fee for El Paso County property owners might not make it onto the November ballot, after all.

Regional leaders bring their ideas

Comments Off

When the subject has been economic development in the Business Journal, usually the focal point of the conversation has been the Colorado Springs Regional Business Alliance, and understandably so. But sometimes it helps to hear other opinions, especially when they’re coming from others in our midst who also have an ownership stake in the regional… Continue Reading Regional leaders bring their ideas

Poll sends forceful message

Comments Off

Every week, as regular readers know, the Business Journal submits a question to our audience by way of our website and daily email. We try to make the topics, and the wording, as neutral as possible to attract a legitimate weekly response. Such was the case for our latest simple query: What should be Colorado… Continue Reading Poll sends forceful message

Council shows weak side again

Comments Off

Just when we thought we couldn’t be surprised anymore by certain members of the Colorado Springs City Council, we found out differently in the past week. Already, we had seen and heard enough to suggest in our editorial two weeks ago that City Council no longer should serve as the board of Colorado Springs Utilities.… Continue Reading Council shows weak side again
