- CMU 20,000 (58.41%)
- Add more direct, daily flights to/from Grand Junction Regional Airport (51.11%)
- Grow the tech industry (45.80%)

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
Join us at the “2030 VISION” community workshop at 2 p.m. on June 6 to learn more about these initiatives! Representatives for each of the six topics with the most votes will have five minutes to talk about their topic. After that, we’ll open the floor to anyone who wants to make a last case for another topic listed above, or any of the topics that made it into the survey comment sections but didn’t quite sway the votes.
Once we’ve heard from the floor, you choose the topic you feel the most passionate about and join a half-hour group discussion to really delve into that issue and figure out how we can move it forward as a community.
Around 3:30 p.m. each group will get a couple of minutes to share back what you’ve discussed. And then, we vote. All workshop attendees can vote right on the spot and see the initial results live.
Can’t make the workshop? Don’t worry. We will tape it and post the workshop presentations to westcoeconomicsummit.com, with a link to vote remotely. We want to capture as many votes as possible, because each and every voice counts.
Together as a community, we will set a list of priorities (by majority vote) and check them off one by one.
