Not sure why everyone is so anti more people moving here. I think Denver's quick urbanization is a boon, but that's just me. As someone who likes to live in cities (of which Denver is) how can you possibly complain about the amount of people. That's what a city is, its a place where mass amounts of people live. Oh no, this city is growing! Oh no, more people live downtown! Shut the fuck up and learn about the basics of what a city is. Don't like people? There's got a be a solution! Think hard.
