Long Range Planning
The City of Grand Junction understands the importance of planning for the future. The Community Development Department initiates and facilitates long range planning efforts for the City. Over the years the City has adopted long range plans for the entire urban area, neighborhood planning areas, street corridors, area plans, subarea plans and overlay districts. Some plans are planned jointly with Mesa County and adopted by both entities. The City's One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan took 22 months to complete and was adopted by the City Council on December 16, 2020. The Plan supersedes and replaces the 2010 Joint Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan adopted by the City and Mesa County in February 2010.
2020 One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan
Grand Junction's Comprehensive Plan is a blueprint for the City and the foundation of the Plan is the community's vision for its future. This vision guides the goals and strategies included in the plan that ultimately informs city priorities, future growth, services, and development in Grand Junction.
The Plan was derived directly from ideas and themes generated during the community outreach process. The Plan can be downloaded here:

City of Grand Junction & Mesa County Wireless Master Plan
The purpose of the Wireless Master Plan (WMP) is similar to the goals and objectives of other long-range infrastructure plans, such as roadway improvements and the extension of water and sewer lines. The WMP for cell tower sites combines land use planning strategies with radiofrequency engineering models to create an illustrative planning tool to help manage the development of future sites. A comprehensive approach to wireless development will help align the needs of wireless broadband service providers with government and community objectives, allowing for infrastructure planning and development that will accommodate multiple providers, improve public safety, and help to attract and retain residents and businesses.
The Wireless Master Plan is a joint plan, prepared and adopted by the City of Grand Junction and Mesa County.
