Grand Junction Downtown Development Authority

The DDA was established in 1981 by the City of Grand Junction after receiving approval through a special election of the Downtown property owners and businesses. The Authority was the first such organization in the State of Colorado and this private-sector initiative exemplifies the strong dedication and support which has helped to shape Downtown Grand Junction. The primary responsibility of the DDA is to support and facilitate economic development efforts to enhance the vitality of the Downtown community through capital investment and construction.
