Parks, Recreation, Open Space (PROS) Master Plan

The City of Grand Junction is in the midst of completing a Parks, Recreation and Open Space (PROS) Master Plan. This effort is growing out of the Comprehensive Plan process. A $56,250 Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant was secured towards the end of 2019, which is paying for about half of the cost of the plan. A full inventory of amenities will be completed and parks, recreation and open space needs will be assessed in a Level of Service analysis. The Master Plan also includes completing a feasibility study and concept designs for the most needed indoor and outdoor recreation facilities.

The PROS Master Plan, derived from citizen and stakeholder input, will provide clear direction for services, facilities and amenities for the next 5 to 8 years. This is an action step in the draft Comprehensive Plan that is up for Council Adoption in later 2020.  The PROS Master Plan will dovetail and build off of the Comprehensive Plan.  The City last completed a Master Plan in 2001. The 2001 plan served the community well with many components having been completed, including an outdoor amphitheater, Las Colonias Park and Canyon View Park.

Meaningful community participation is the driving force in this Master Planning effort  with the following methods: a statistically valid survey sent to 6,000 households, open link surveys distributed, public input from focus groups, community meetings, engagement with City Council and staff, and regular interaction with a City Council appointed PROS Master Plan Advisory Committee.
