Grand Junction was named after the Grand River, which changed it’s name to the Colorado River in 1921.
Its the Junction between the Colorado and the Gunnison rivers.
Around 62,000 people call Grand Junction home.
A major draw to the area is Colorado Mesa University.
St. Mary’s hospital is also very good, adding many jobs and medical services to the community.
The skyline to the south east is the Grand Mesa, the largest table top mountain. I enjoy recreating there, and saved a collection of the remote homes on the Mesa, here.
To the south of town lies the Colorado National Monument, a series of canyons.
Mesa County School District 51 serves the area.
The recreational opportunities abound from fishing on the Mesa to hiking and mountain biking. The river beckons paddleboarders and rafters.
Many of the surrounding lands are public and managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
Grand Junction is in Mesa County, so you’ll want to check out the resources there.
The Community Development page is a wealth of resources for a builder.
I love this development map the city put online.
