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1995 Orchard Mesa Neighborhood Plan (revised in 2000) was sunset with the adoption of the Comprehensive Plan, so it is no longer in effect.  The new Orchard Mesa Plan complements the 2010 Comprehensive Plan for the area.
