The City of Grand Junction’s printed 2023 calendar began arriving in the mailboxes of city residents this week. This popular calendar contains beautiful photos of the natural beauty of the Grand Junction area while also serving as the city’s annual report. The calendar includes a letter from the Mayor, a review of 2022 projects and accomplishments, a directory of city services, financial information, a list of Boards and Commissions and their meeting dates as well as dates for City Council meetings, national and state holidays, trash and recycle pick up delays, and holiday closures for city offices.
“Residents start calling City Hall in the early fall to check on the date the calendar will be available,” stated Mayor Anna Stout. Anyone who doesn’t get a copy of this beautiful calendar delivered to their home, can stop by City Hall and pick up the 2023 edition.”
“Once again, the selection of pictures submitted by regional photographers presents us with breathtaking examples of the natural beauty that surrounds our community every single day. We are so grateful for their generosity and their skill capturing the moments in time we all get to appreciate as we turn the page on each new month,” Stout continued.
The calendar is printed and distributed each year to households throughout the city. The submitted photographs undergo a rigorous selection process. The Commission on Arts and Culture makes the final determination on which pictures are included in the calendar. This year 14 photos were selected including one for the front cover, one for each month, and one additional picture that appears on the inside cover.
More than 50,000 copies are mailed to city residents and calendars are also available to be picked up at City Hall 250 E. 5th St., at the Utilities Office at 910 Main St., the GJ Police and Fire Departments at 555 or 625 Ute Avenue, the Parks and Recreation office at 1340 Gunnison Ave., and the Visitors Center at 740 Horizon Drive.
