“The Grand Valley is a perfect size to grow our business. The community provides us the amenities that we require, but we’d get lost in the shuffle of a larger community. Our employees are happy and healthy because they are able to partake in all the outdoor activities that abound in the Grand Valley.”

– Sarah Shrader, co-owner, Bonsai Design
