Upcoming Public Meetings on the Grand Valley River Corridor

September 30th, 2021
What do the Grand Valley’s rivers and riparian (riverside) lands mean to you? Do they provide your favorite places to bike, or irrigation water for your crops? Are you concerned about the potential for flooding or erosion? Would you like to see more recreational access, more riverfront businesses, or would you like to see it left alone?
The Grand Valley River Corridor Initiative, a partnership coordinated by One Riverfront, RiversEdge West and the Hutchins Water Center at Colorado Mesa University, is seeking public input to help develop a unified community vision for the river corridor and identify activities to realize that vision.
We invite you to join us for one of the following focus groups, depending on what your primary interest in the corridor is:
  • Residents and community groups representing people who live near the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers: October 12, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Colorado Mesa University, University Center Room 213
  • Recreational users, businesses and nonprofit organizations with interests in the river corridor: October 29, 9:15am – 11:15am, Mesa County Public Library – Central Branch.   
  • Any interested person who didn’t make one of the earlier meetings: November 10, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, Colorado Mesa University, University Center, Meyer Ballroom 235 West
You can learn more about the Grand Valley River Corridor Initiative and RSVP for one of the meetings at www.ColoradoMesa.Edu/Water-Center.
