Local Business Resources


If you already own a business in Mesa County, we don’t need to tell you why it is the best place to live, raise your kids and enjoy the outdoors (#WestSlopeBestSlope).

But we can help you ensure that your business grows and stays successful. GJEP works closely with the local municipalities, other area economic development organizations and the local business community to help companies with their expansion plans.
