Thomson people. You need to Google Colorado Federal prison. They promised job to people in the community but it did not happen till now. Be care full what you wish for, because once it is sold there is no turning back. It would boost the community better if it was State ran, but you just want it open to anyone and your town will surfer more.

What do you mean nearly vacant? It is vacant. I don,t think you would like a federal or state prison there. I would rather see Gitmo . The people that are in fed and state prisons are still running their illegal drugs etc. from behind bars. Family members and friends move into the area and help them. With Gitmo there are no visitors. Like the other comment, you don,t want a fed or state prison. Better yet, we could fill it with ex and politicians like Illinois governors.
