Milliken - The small town of Milliken was cut off from the rest of the world by rushing water in September.
Major roadways have reopened to the community, but some neighborhoods in town have not.
Three weeks after dozens of families who live in the Evergreen mobile home park had to flee rising water, none of them can move back.
"No one's allowed in," park owner Tim Solomon said. "There's a 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew."
Solomon figures about half of the 33 homes in his park are a total loss.
The people who live in the area have salvaged what they can, but when it comes to putting it all back together - they're stuck.
So when Gov. John Hickenlooper dropped by for a look, he heard all about it.
"We've done this for 30 years Governor Hickenlooper, and we know how to take care of these problems," said the owner of an adjacent property. "Families are begging us to go home."
The governor pointed out he's not in charge of opening and closing areas; local governments have to decide when it's safe.
However, he did promise some help getting inspections done.
"We'll get people up here next week, and we'll just push it through," Hickenlooper said to the crowd.
What's gnawing at people is uncertainty over where and how they're going to live.
"The uncertainty creates frustration," Hickenlooper told 9NEWS. "And frustration when they've had to put up with so much else in these last few weeks. It just feels like the straw that breaks the camel's back."
In the meantime, people displaced by the flood are relying on the help of a lot of friends right now.
"My kids, everyone is in a different house," Angelina Flores said. "My pets are in a different house, too."
The governor said he hopes to shine a light on neighborhoods that could use more help.
After hearing that, this neighborhood is cautiously optimistic.
"At this point, we have had several different promises and there's several that have fallen through," Solomon said. "But we're hopeful and we'd like to see progress."
