    Many people are becoming wary of using online lists and marketplaces to buy and sell. Adult content, stolen items, spam are just some of the reasons. The current economy is also motivating people to seek sites that have a connection with their communities. One family in Colorado Springs, CO, recognized the need for change and Colorado Spring Vibe was born.

    The site was started and is owned by a Colorado Springs retired Air Force family. Their goal was to provide a safe place for area residents to buy and sell their homes, find local news and information, and locate coupons and deals from local merchants. The site has been very successful, and has expanded to include forums in which local residents can interact about topics of the day, tips for living frugally, military life and senior issues. The site also has categories for discussion and information on teens, fitness and divorce, and over 50 clubs are represented.

Area businesses benefit through support by residents and putting local money to work within the community.
