The hardest City Council meeting to get to. Like ever.



I make it through the gates.

Yesterday, I navigated a Pac-Man maze to get to a City Council/Colorado Springs Utilities meeting. And I wasn't destroyed by Blinky, Pinky, Inky or Clyde.

OK, perhaps I'm exaggerating a little. But not really. The meeting was held at 855 E. Las Vegas St., which I soon found out was a waste treatment plant with restricted entry. After trying to reach the building through the most direct route, I was faced with a closed gate. Helpful employees guided me to a different gate, where I had to show my driver's license, and explain why I was there. I was then given a badge.

From there, I followed blue signs and drove through a strange and winding series of parking lots, around pools filled with equipment and some content-looking ducks. Finally, when I was sure I was lost, a man in a golf cart appeared and guided me to a back parking lot. I parked, and climbed metal stairs that looked like they were designed as a fire escape.

Inside was the Council meeting. Apparently, it was being recorded via iPhone.

If they were trying to keep citizens away, all I can say is "bravo." Even the Council members got lost.

Over the river and through the woods ... so to speak.
