|A not very good picture of one of Broomfield work-type buildings|
The chamber of commerce map asserts that Broomfield is a planned community. I am beginning to think the plan was to push visiting drivers to the brink of insanity. Either that or the community does NOT like to waste names. As we are driving around, we encounter Interlocken Loop, Interlocken Parkway, Interlocken Cresecent, and Interlocken Boulevard. There are several street names used over and over with a different suffix attached.
Driving all these streets with the same first name coupled with the community plan of having streets loop and circle around each other reminds me of square dancing instead of driving.
Since we don't know the area, we find ourselves asking questions such as, "Do you know where there is a laundromat?" etc. Nine out of ten times the response is, "I am not from here. I just work here. I don't know." So here we have Wal Mart employees, gas station attendants, business customers, but none of them are from Broomfield. Here are some of my questions: where do the people from Broomfield work, shop, and hide out? Are babies born and raised in Broomfield, or is the common method to import people to inhabit the town when they reach age 21? After the imports move in here are they advised to shop in other cities?
In spite of my frustrations as a visitor without kith or kin to advise me, Broomfield is a clean, new, nice community.
