The City of Grand Junction's vision to become the most livable community west of the Rockies by 2025 is realized by the community embracing and promoting economic vitality, livability of our neighborhoods and resource management. The Economic Development Division was created to foster programs and partnerships to achieve that vision.
The City of Grand Junction is located in the Grand Valley at the confluence of the Gunnison and Colorado Rivers. Nestled between the Book Cliffs and the Colorado National Monument, Grand Junction is the largest city between Denver and Salt Lake. I-70 and U S Highways 50 and 6 link Grand Junction with the State and the nation. BNSF Railway serves freight and Amtrak, and Grand Junction Regional Airport has daily flights to Denver, Salt Lake, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston. Combined with a friendly and efficient local government, the City of Grand Junction is more than capable of attracting and maintaining a diversified industry base.
But Grand Junction is about more than just business. It's a standard of living. Both the residents and workforce alike enjoy an active lifestyle in the midst of Colorado's beautiful outdoors. Camping, golfing, biking, hiking, skiing, rock climbing, fly-fishing and rafting head a long list of must-do activities for active employees and a more spirited workforce. Weekend or weekday, there is always plenty to do.
