It’s been nearly four years since I wrote about the potential for change in the Downtown area of Grand Junction, given all of the vacant, unused property along one of its major streets, Grand Avenue.
Since that time, the face of Grand Avenue hasn’t changed all that much. The economy has certainly played a part in that, as evidenced by the sign above. The First Assembly of God property was initially sold, with plans to develop it along the lines of residential and commercial multi-use as identified for this area in the City’s Comprehensive Plan (24 dwelling units and/or 96 jobs per acre). Apparently, that has fallen through.
This location factor, as well as the property’s proximity to City Hall and the County Administration Center, makes me wonder if this wouldn’t be a better location for a Public Safety facility.
City Council and administration, what do you think?

Enough said. Enjoy your day.
