The Grand Junction Economic Partnership says 2009 is off to a great start as several business have called them, interested in coming to the Grand Valley.

25 companies have contacted GJEP just this year, 13 of which officials call "hot prospects."

They say nearly half of all the companies they're working with are in the manufacturing sector and would bring better paying jobs and lots of capital investment money to our area.

And even though we're in the midst of recession, officials say prospect activity is looking way up.

"2008 was pretty quiet with the exception of around the election," said Ann Driggers, President and CEO of the Grand Junction Economic Partnership. "In 2009 we've really started to see a pickup in activity which is very exciting."

GJEP says it believes the declining costs of property and the fact that we have a lot more people available to work are things that have made the Valley more attractive to businesses.
