Public Engagement

Fostering public involvement and engagement is a key priority for the City of Grand Junction. Public participation in government processes is an essential way for the city to convey important information, open avenues of communication with stakeholders and promote a transparent, equitable form of government.

Community Meetings

Thank you to all who participated in the 2021 Community Meeting series! Check back to this page for information on the upcoming 2022 Community Meeting schedule.

Community meetings serve a range of purposes, including neighborhood meetings, where staff provides residents with updates on City projects, to meetings on special topics, such as projects, plans, or the budget. In addition to providing information, staff use community meetings to seek input from community members.
