GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - On Thursday, city leaders listened to residents’ concerns about the closing of Whitman Park. It’s the hang-out spot for several of the city’s homeless population.

Beverly Lampley, Grand Valley Catholic Outreach’s director, cites the meeting as important because it shows the way the community comes together to deal with tough issues. “I’ve talked to some of them, I expect some negative comments about what’s going on. I expect to hear some good ideas.”
