Horizon Drive to Receive New Artwork

Horizon Drive ArtworkThe Horizon Drive Business Improvement District Board has chosen two local artists to paint the city owned transportation signal boxes (TSB’s) on Horizon Drive. Pavia Justinian, who has had public art in Palisade, Grand Junction, Longmont, Westminster, and Moab, will paint her bike riding Kokopelli on the box located on G Rd and Horizon Drive. Josh Anderson, a cartoonist and graphic designer, will paint his piece representing iconic desert landscapes with fun animated local animals on the box located on Crossroads Boulevard and Horizon Drive.

Electric Art, as the project is known, was started last year with the painting of two signal boxes on 4th Street and 5th Street and Main, as part of the Downtown Art Festival. This year we are extending the reach to our gateway corridor on Horizon Drive to welcome visitors with more art! The boxes are scheduled to be painted the first part of May. Electric Art is a program overseen by the Grand Junction Commission on Arts and Culture.

Seeking Community Input on Grand Junction’s Future

Display Ad.png

You are cordially invited to help the City plan for the future! The City of Grand Junction is conducting a 2020 Comprehensive Plan update over the next 18 months and we would love to have your input.


COMMUNITY WORKSHOP:  Tuesday, April 9 at 6 p.m. at Two Rivers Convention Center, 159 Main Street

Feel free to bring your children ages 4+ – activities will be provided onsite by Parks and Recreation staff


What is a Comprehensive Plan? 

A Comprehensive Plan is a critical road map to guide decisions about a community’s future and may include elements such as housing, recreation, tourism, the economy and transportation. A new website has been launched to help in the Grand Junction planning effort.

Our update is a long-range plan that will look at issues such as where and how we will grow over the next 20 years. The Plan will include planning for residential and commercial growth and needed services and infrastructure (parks, utilities, roads, police, fire, etc.) and will also evaluate potential changes to the City’s growth boundary, identify risks and vulnerabilities of natural and human caused hazards. Perhaps most importantly, the Plan will work to identify goals, strategies and actions that reflect the values and vision for the community as a whole; one Grand Junction.

Please plan to take part. For additional information, you may also visit the City’s website.
