Community Recreation Center Survey


At the beginning of February, the City of Grand Junction mailed a letter to a random selection of Grand Junction registered voters informing them that they are invited to participate in a statistically valid survey regarding a potential Community Recreation Center in Grand Junction. Residents are asked to check their mailboxes for the survey letter invitation and, if selected, to please complete the survey online or over the phone. The letter provides background on the process as well as instructions on completing the survey. Selected residents who do not complete the survey online will receive a phone call from a (717) area code to complete the survey over the phone. The purpose of the survey is to better understand residents’ opinions and needs related to a potential Community Recreation Center in Grand Junction.

The City of Grand Junction partnered with Colorado Mesa University and their research partner, The Center for Opinion Research at Franklin & Marshall College, to create and execute the survey. The survey results will be presented to City Council this spring.  The data from the survey will be critical to informing the City’s path forward regarding a Community Recreation Center. An indoor Community Recreation Center could include such elements as indoor and outdoor pools, a gymnasium, a walk/jog track, and other community spaces. 

“A Community Recreation Center has been a topic of discussion in Grand Junction for a number of years,” said Mayor Chuck McDaniel. “We are pleased to partner with CMU to help the City understand the community’s current preferences on this important topic.”
