All I've heard is "negotiations" and "plans", it isn't a done deal yet. As for livlihoods, there are very few people living in that area
because of lack of water, uncontaminated water that is, drought and sparse graze.
Personally I wouldn't mind if they did take the land and then move most of Ft. Carson dependents down there into military housing. We are congested
with more and more military moving in here, causing traffic problems, cost of living increase and just plain congestion everywhere. Ship two thirds
of the people living on and around Ft. Carson to Pinon Canyon and this might be a nice safe place to live again. US Army brats bring crime, gangs,
shootings, drugs to quiet neighborhoods. Many military men can't drive worth a darn. My '77 Pontiac was hit by a GI running a red light in his
brand now '06 Mustang and Mustang pieces scattered all over the road while the Pontiac just wobbled a bit. I was able to drive across the street to
get out of traffic's way while the Mustang laid in the street broken. My Pontiac is on the road again and the Mustang now sits in a salvage lot.
This is common all over the city of Colorado Springs. Let them take the land and get rid of these people we don't want here.
