During the four years I have lived in Falcon the growth has been both constant and notable. Moving from Aurora, Colo., for my husband’s job, we decided to plan a trip to Falcon to look for a home. The first time I drove down Woodmen Road toward Falcon from Colorado Springs it seemed to go on forever. I was sure we would approach a sign signifying that we were almost to the Kansas border. At that point, however, we had actually reached Marksheffel Road.”Are we there yet?” is usually the question my children impatiently ask on road trips, but that day I asked the question.As we approached Falcon, I noticed the Shops at Woodmen Hills were under construction. Nothing had been built on the other three corners at the Meridian and Woodmen roads intersection. My husband assured me there was a Safeway somewhere in the area. The drive to Colorado Springs now seemed like a short jaunt rather than a day trip.Looking around Falcon today I can hardly comprehend the growth that has taken place in those four short years. Shopping, restaurants, banks and a vast array of services are all right here. Soon, residents may not need to leave Falcon to seek amenities from the city to the west. I have met many Falcon residents who have lived in the area for a decade or two or three. Their stories of growth definitely out-match mine.In this issue of The New Falcon Herald, growth is highlighted – whether you agree with it or not, it is here. Kathy Wallace has written about the progress of the St. Francis Medical Center construction and the services it will offer our area. Natalie Gowen revisits covenant issues and how the guidelines affect both neighbors and the board that enforces the covenants. And Judi Tobias reports on El Paso County budget cuts that could affect all Falcon residents and future growth.Some Falcon residents see area change as a nuisance, while some see it as convenience. The truth is, though, no one can fully escape change. Falcon is a unique community with lots to offer its residents. I have grown to not only consider Falcon the place where I live but also the place I call home.– Stefani, Michelle and the NFH team
