The environmental upside of the recession


The environment upside of the recession

KRCC the local NPR radio station out of Colorado Springs recently sent out an email discussing the upside of the recession. HUH? Due to reduced tax revenues the city has turned out some street lights. And if  residents are so inclined they can "adopt" a street light for approx $160 a year. Read more about it here. The upside is that residence can now possibly appreciate the glory of nature, specifically the stars!

We often forget that city lights are a form of polluntion. Not only is energy required to turn these city lights on but they actually disturb some forces of nature.

If you think you would like to see the stars again, would like to rid yourself of blackout shades and enjoy a lower tax bill, let me show you some properties a little "out there." You don't have to go off the grid to enjoy the show!
