    • The DRAFT Orchard Mesa Neighborhood Plan is available.  The Orchard Mesa Plan is a joint effort between the City of Grand Junction and Mesa County in developing the long range vision for the Orchard Mesa neighborhood. The Plan builds upon the 2010 Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan, adopted by Grand Junction and Mesa County.  The Comprehensive Plan includes the western portion of Orchard Mesa.  The 1995 Orchard Mesa Neighborhood Plan (revised in 2000) was sunset with the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan, so it is no longer in effect.  A new Orchard Mesa Plan complements the 2010 Comprehensive Plan for the area.
    • Thank you to everyone who participated in the Orchard Mesa Plan open houses. Your input is very important to us..
