GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) For those who enjoy adventuring in the area around Monument Road, there could be even more space for fun in the future.

Mesa Land Trust is looking to buy more land near Lunch Loop and Three Sisters to connect the recreational areas. The organization asked the Grand Junction City Council for some funding for the project at a meeting Monday.

"It would provide for new access points for hikers and bikers and dog walkers to get out and enjoy that beautiful scenery on Monument Road," said Rob Bleiberg, executive director of Mesa Land Trust.

Mesa Land Trust is asking for $150,000 to supplement grants and fundraising.

"We think that these projects are a great addition for the community and for developing our tourism base and for attracting people to live in our community that love the outdoors," Bleiberg said.

Council members did not vote on the proposal Monday, but will bring the topic up for a vote in the future.
