Suggestion[edit]

This article needs some help. Although I generally believe that prose is best, listing all the cites within the front range corridor looks messy. My suggestion (and I'll do it myself if need be) is to list (bullet) principal cities in Bold text and non-principal cities in normal font. For example, Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, Pueblo etc... would be principal cities ... and Westminster, Arvada, Lone Tree etc... would be non-principal cities. Just a thought. I do think this article is important, however. Trodaikid1983 00:00, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Multi-MSA Municipalities[edit]

Ten municipalities in the Front Range Urban Corridor span two MSAs:

Image:FRURC.PNG[edit]

Image:FRURC.PNG illustrates what is known as the Colorado I-25 Corridor. This is not the same area as the Front Range Urban Corridor which stretches from Pueblo and Cheyenne. You could create a new article for the Colorado I-25 Corridor.

merge[edit]

I propose to merge what little content is in Eastern Rockies Corridor here and set up the redirect. AFAIK, Front Range is the right name for the area. CosmicPenguin (Talk) 03:26, 10 November 2007 (UTC)

OK with me. --Buaidh (talk) 19:03, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Urban?[edit]

It amazes me how Americans define "urban" areas. This particular "urban" area is half the size of England, but has one 12th of England's population, i.e. it is one sixth as densely populated as England. England is mainly rural, but Americans define an area with one sixth of England's population density as an urban corridor! Abberley2 (talk) 12:57, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Only a small percentage of the total area an urban corridor consists of urban areas. The notion of an urban corridor is an assemblage of urban areas that are linked by commuting patterns. Most of the area of the Front Range Urban Corridor consists of mountain and range lands with less than one person per square kilometer. --Buaidh (talk) 13:20, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Extent[edit]

Cheyenne is the "southeast" Front Range? I hesitate to roll this back as vandalism, but ... huh? JacquesDelaguerre (talk) 16:51, 2 December 2009 (UTC)

I think they mean southeast Wyoming, but that isn't very clear. Whats is the purpose of that column anyway? CosmicPenguin (talkWP:WYOHelp!) 05:08, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Beats me! I'll take a look in spare time and see if I can rationalize it all. JacquesDelaguerre (talk) 07:02, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, think CosmicPenguin is correct about the editor's point. I think the column means, "What region of the state in question does the Front Range traverse?" Guess I was incorrect to challenge it, though perhaps it could be improved in clarity. JacquesDelaguerre (talk) 15:32, 3 December 2009 (UTC)
I changed the urban region names. Yours aye,  Buaidh  15:33, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

2000 Pop. for the City and County of Broomfield[edit]

I think there needs to be a note clarifying the fact that the 2000 census stats. reflect the population of Broomfield as 0. Since this table is listing county populations, it would be inconsistent to list the city's population (it didnt become a seperate county until 2001). Maybe putting N/A with a note giving the date it became a consolidated city-county? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.234.181.78 (talk) 20:59, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

I've added a note. Yours aye,  Buaidh  16:00, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Article title[edit]

The scope of this article is apparently the "Front Range megaregion" as defined by the Regional Plan Association, so I am wondering if that should not be the article title. Is the name "Southern Rocky Mountain Front" widely used by other sources to refer to the same area? I'm aware of the potential for confusion with the Front Range Urban Corridor, which is not generally understood to include the NM areas. I just want to make sure the article title reflects the sources and isn't OR. Camerafiend (talk) 15:55, 20 September 2013 (UTC)
