Merry Christmas, Mr. Potter!

Some Black Forest residents fought for years to prevent development of Cathedral Pines, an upscale housing project north of Milam and Shoup roads in the unincorporated area north of Colorado Springs.
More specifically, they objected to the extension of Milam -- which was required so that Cathedral Pines residents could reach their homes -- and fought bitterly with Cathedral Pine's developer Dan Potter.
The squabble over the Milam Road extension has been resolved, but Black Forest residents haven't forgotten Cathedral Pines. Some have given it a derisive new name: Pottersville, reflecting the name of Jimmy Stewart's desolate hometown in his alternate reality in the Christmas movie "It's a Wonderful Life."
