The Pros and Cons of Thornton, CO - 9/4/2009
I've lived in Thornton for the last 2.5 yrs and I have to say its a great, well located town to live in. My job demands alot of travel , so I'm 20min from the airport, 10 mintues from downtown and 45 min from the closest ski resort. I will admit that traffic is bad during rush hour (1hr+ to South Denver on I-25) & during big downtown events, but there are always alternative routes. Due to the fact that Adams County has had so many foreclosures, the housing prices in Thornton & the surounding areas are a bit depressed, but then they never zoomed out of sight either. Looking for a modest starter home under $200,000? - You'll be overwhelmed by the selction. I would caution anyone looking at relocating to spend the time to seriously investiagte the neighborhood as their are pockets of crime/older construction/ bad elements that will butt right up to a newer, more affluent neighborhood. (The growth pattern of the city is interesting...) City services have been great and the community tries hard to be inclusive to newcomers, with varying degrees of success. I have to say my interactions with city hall, police & fire/rescue personnel have all been very positive as have my dealing with the neighbors. Overall, its been a positive experience.[read more...]
