Fruita City Manager Mike Bennett gestures toward the area where a 10-foot-wide paved trail will be located in the 68-acre Greenway Business Park. The business park is located south of Highway 6 & 50 in the 16 Road area, and Bennett said that the city is hoping to attract light manufacturing businesses.

It’s this combination of easy interstate and railway access in a Wild West setting that Fruita leaders hope can attract some light manufacturing outdoor retailers.
