    Another land swap is on the agenda for Colorado Springs City Council. Under the deal, the City would trade parcels with developer David Jenkins for land located just west of the train tracks near America the Beautiful Park. Swapping the land would allow C-DOT to put in a better design for new storm water infrastructure that is building as part of the I-25 Cimarron Interchange project.
