GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Making Grand Junction the most livable city west of the Rockies by 2025 is the goal and city council members are meeting to check up on the progress.

The Grand Junction City Council had its mid-year review with the city attorney and city manager over lunch Tuesday.

The city leaders mainly discussed progress on the city's long-term economic development plan, which the city manager has been working on by implementing changes to staffing and structure.

"Letting us know how that's working," Grand Junction Mayor Phyllis Norris said. "He started the first of the year, so mid-year you really need to know are we moving forward still or do we need to revamp what we're doing."

Grand Junction has seen slight, but encouraging increases in sales tax revenue, jobs and real estate activity.

"We're actually seeing some results," Mayor Norris said. "This is really exciting for us and it's important for our economy here in the valley."

The Grand Junction City Council will meet again at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 3.
