Community Workshop – Tuesday, April 9, 6:00 PM

The Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan cannot be completed without the participation of residents, property owners, and other stakeholders from throughout the community. Your input and ideas are important, and the City needs to hear what you have to say.

The first opportunity for the entire community to get involved will be a Community Workshop. The purpose of this workshop is to allow residents to provide input, before any plans or recommendations are formulated. The workshop will: (a) review the purpose of the Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan, the planning process to be undertaken, and the schedule for the project; and (b) hear resident’s views on problems, issues, and assets within the community.

Bring your children 4 years old and up to enjoy games and activities with Grand Junction Parks and Recreation staff while parents attend the Community Workshop.
