Colorado Springs Realtor - Cherise's Blog: Peterson Air Force Base Economic Impact

Peterson Air Force Base Economic Impact

The Colorado Springs Business Journal provides pertinent information about our local economy. Contained within this blog are some excerpts about some salient economic points.

There are some distinct advantages to having five military bases located in the Springs. Yet, when glancing at how one of the bases positively affects our local economy, for a small business owner, the numbers are soothing.

Over the last two years, Peterson Air Force Base had an estimated $2.3 billion dollar impact on our regional economy. 11,277 civilian and military employees support an annual payroll that exceeds $500 million dollars.

Colorado Springs Realtors covet the opportunity to work with those affiliated with Peterson Air Force Base because they typically qualify for real estate financing. Based upon nearly 5,000 jobs in Colorado Springs, the average salary computes to around $44,000.

Paula - I really want to be there for you if you need anything that is forthcoming.  Good talking with you yesterday as well.  Hope my voice didn't sound too startled.  I've been overdoing it lately so I think I'm kind of tired.  Cherise
