Main Street fountain in dry spell

It’s been quite a while since water flowed freely from a public fountain at the northwest corner of Third and Main streets in Grand Junction.

The fountain, created in 1996 or 1997, was operational until a few years ago, when soil underneath its base subsided, causing a crack to spread in the cement, said Rob Schoeber, director of parks and recreation for Grand Junction.

The city began obtaining bids to have the fountain repaired, but the property was sold to the owners of Hawthorn Suites, Kevin Reimer and Steve Reimer.

At one time, city officials thought the space could be used as a small stage for performances, but the town’s core tended to move east.

“It kind of transitioned from a fountain to a work of art,” Schoeber said. “I’m not sure what the future will be.”
