The First Phase of a controversial development project in Grand Junction was approved early Wednesday Morning.

Dozens of concerned residents packed the Grand Junction City Hall auditorium to address the Grand Junction Planning Commission to have their say in the project that will be built on the corner of First Street and Patterson Road.

Recently, a former Mesa County Commissioner protested that the property would encroach his driveway that is next to the project.
However, that was taken off the table early Wednesday morning.

Traffic at the busy corner is a concern for residents, because the project will include residential and commercial space. Developers say the concerns have been heard, and planned for.

The first phase of the project was passed unanimously by the board, but residents say they will continue to protect what they say are pressing traffic concerns.
