Although local restaurants, bars and retail stores are suffering due to the Corona Virus, military bases and the support needed in the surrounding community continues to operate and expand. The Colorado Springs Business Journal wrote: “The Business Journal’s editorial board recently pointed to the Pikes Peak region’s strong military presence as one reason Colorado Springs is more insulated from wild economic swings.” Colorado Springs is home to 4 major bases; Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base, United State Air Force Academy, Schriever Air Force Base, and was recently awarded to be the home of the U.S. Space Command for the next 6 years. In December of 2019 Congress passed a Defense Policy Bill that established the United States Space Force. In the Bill it designates the Air Force Space Command to partially evolve into this new Space Force.

According to the Colorado Chamber of Commerce, once fully up and running, the United States Space Force will total 15,000 in personnel. When “Space Force” is typed into a job search for Colorado Springs on Indeed, it results in 81 active job postings as of the day of this writing. Job postings in the last week for employment on the local bases totaled 71 on USjobs.gov and local contractors such as Jacobs, Caci and Linquest posted many positions likely related to staffing up for the new Space Force.

With consistent paychecks coming in for these military and contractor families through the pandemic, the demand for support in the local community is still viable. From fast food, to retail, to healthcare, these families have spending power. One industry showing strong evidence of the demand is healthcare. Centura Health and UC Health are amongst the many healthcare providers investing and expanding in the metro area. UC Health’s Sports Medicine Clinic, located near North Nevada & I-25, is well into its construction phase. The facility is set to be a 65,000 square foot medical office building mostly dedicated to sports medicine. In addition, Centura Health anticipates to build a hospital with up to a 300 - bed capacity, at the intersection of I-25 and Interquest. This would be the third hospital for Penrose St. Francis Services, owned and operated by Centura Health. UC Health is last week’s top job poster along with Centura Health and Anthem ranking in the top 15.

Continued opportunity in Colorado Springs during the pandemic is appealing to many across the nation. With over 300 days of sun, endless activities available for all, and open jobs for any age, what’s not to love.
