Hello, New South End. And the new North Tejon Street neighborhood.

It was an event to experience new downtown communities and to welcome the first men to a special public meeting of Artemis Women.

The Jan. 17 "Creating Neighborhoods" at Tim Gill Center for Public Media drew an overflow crowd of people.

The gathering was a project of Kathy Loo, one of the founders of Artemis, which for 11 years has motivated women to become involved in community as it "tries to make Colorado Springs a better place." Loo teamed with Darsey Nicklasson, with whom she is developing Blue Dot Place, an apartment complex for urban professionals being constructed on Nevada Avenue south of Costilla Street.
