Neighborhoods are the backbone of driving the growth and energy of Colorado Springs. One area of the city that is seeing enhancements and investment is Southeast Colorado Springs. From a new Amazon distribution center to the development of Panorama Park, activity abounds on the southeast quadrant of the city. The progress is spearheaded by individuals, developers, government agencies and community groups, all playing a role in creating economic opportunity and community empowerment throughout the southeast. On Tuesday's "The Extra", guests Yemi Mobolade, small business development administrator of the City of Colorado Springs; Darsey Nicklasson, developer of Mosaica (artist rendering shown), a new planned multi-family community; and Joyce Salazar, community outreach coordinator with RISE Coalition joined host Shannon Brinias to talk about the initiatives.
