Building and selling new homes in Colorado Springs, we know what an incredible asset our military is to our city and to our nation. The Gazette recently released a perspective piece that shows just how big an impact the military has on our economy and our future. Today, Colorado Springs’, “five local military installations have an annual local economic impact of $5.7 billion, and include approximately 40,000 uniformed and 13,000 civilian personnel.” Equating to more than 44% of the local economy, Colorado Springs is an epicenter for the country’s defense including the future of cybersecurity and space command as well.
Not only has Colorado Springs been voted one of the top places to live in the country, for Veterans and civilians alike, but across the Pikes Peak region Department of Defense contracts are positively impacting job growth for sectors like construction, scientific services, education, health services and more.
Memorial Day is just around the corner and we would like to take this opportunity to recognize how special our community is and how privileged we are to be a part of such a large military presence. For our part, Saint Aubyn makes sure our neighborhoods have easy access to all of the local military installations because we know how important that convenience is to our military families.
Everyone at Saint Aubyn Homes would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to every soldier who has given the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country as well as military families and the dedication and sacrifices they make as well. Memorial Day is an important time to recognize where our freedom comes from and the impact our soldiers make for our country at large and to the benefit of our local communities. Make sure to thank the military members in your life and their families for their service. Is there a soldier in your life you would like to recognize?
