Economic Development

The City of Grand Junction works with its economic development partners to recruit, retain, and expand business activity within the City. The City supports these partners as they perform economic development activities.

Economic Development Plan

On May 7, 2014, City Council unanimously adopted the City's first Economic Development Plan (PDF). The plan marks an important step for the City of Grand Junction in formalizing the approach to bolster business here and address economic development head-on, especially in an economy that has been slow to recover.

In 2013, City Council undertook a focused effort to develop a plan that they feel accurately captures their vision for the economic vitality of this community.
