A long-anticipated project that could result in the construction of new subdivision on the east side of Grand Junction remains in the planning stage, although with an extended schedule.
The Pinnacle Ridge subdivision will be built on a hilly and vacant 45-acre site near Mariposa Drive and Monument Road in a largely undeveloped section of the city.
The developer of the project, Robert Jones, president of the Grand Junction-based Vortex Engineering, has asked for a two-year extension on an earlier city approval of the preliminary plans for the project.
In city documents, the extension is being requested due to project construction delays as well as the current uncertainty of the economy.
In response, a staff report issued by the city’s Planning Department is recommending a new approval deadline that would not expire until April of 2022.
As earlier proposed, Pinnacle Ridge will have 72 single family home lots with at least a third of the site designated as open space.
The subdivision would be built in four phases, with some of the first phase homes measuring around 2100 square feet.
