Anything you read about Windsor is what was true 5-10 years ago. It's not that place anymore. City officials allowed uncontrolled growth with no thoughts to infrastructure. There has been a huge increase in crime and traffic in the last 5 years. This is not a friendly city. The people here are extremely rude. Housing prices are insane to live in a town with absolutely nothing to do. This used to be a nice little town, it is now a nightmare of what happens when you issue infinite housing permits with no mindfulness of the impact on schools, roads, police departments, etc.

Windsor is a great town that still values small town qualities. Even though Windsor is growing quickly the charm still remains. Full of parks, and kids friendly activities I could not see my family living anywhere more welcoming. With all the necessary amenities our small town is exactly what new and growing families need. This is a town that is easy to call home!
Windsor is a town that blew up overnight due to overzealous property tycoons, and the large part of it is a bland sea of cookie-cutter homes between 200 and 300k and barely any yard. Like some of SE Denver's newer areas, a lot of it didn't exist 10 years ago, so not many trees. People in Weld County believe they are "country" but are really just living in an extended suburb, never more than 15 min from a Starbucks. I am from and have lived in much smaller towns than Windsor (in midwest), but they somehow had more going on and didn't feel manufactured. Also it is completely flat prairie.
