The Colorado Gambling Boom: An Experiment in Rural Community Development.
Stokowski, Patricia A.
Small Town, v22 n6 p12-19 May-Jun 1992
Three small Colorado towns that faced a declining economy as the mining resource ran out used gambling-based tourism as a strategy for community development. Although economic benefits to the towns have far exceeded expectations, negative social, environmental, and political changes, such as crime alcoholism, traffic problems, and conflicts between cities and county, have lowered county residents' quality of life.
