GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- On Monday, the Colorado Riverfront Commission presented its formalized strategic plan to the Grand Junction City Council.
The main goal of this plan is to encourage events and beautification projects along the trails to help bring visitors to the Grand Valley.
This plan was two years in the making to formalize future goals and strategies.
Officials hope to implement projects that will encourage restoration and conservation of riverside lands.
“In writing the strategic plan, we feel that by writing a small document, we can pass it on to our successors that we're all focused on the same goals. Some strategies we can implement these as time goes by,” said Brad Taylor, co-chair for the Riverfront Commission.
The Colorado Riverfront Commission is a group of volunteers who aim to inspire change among the community to care for the Riverfront rather than neglecting it.
The Riverfront Commission will be presenting its strategic plan all week to various Mesa County officials.
