GRETEL DAUGHERTY/The Daily Sentinel—Traffic flows north along 12th Street past an eight-acre parcel at the intersection of Patterson Road, where City Market has revived plans to build a store. The project would include a gas station and space for other retailers.


City Market is closing in on a longtime company goal: building a store at the intersection of 12th Street and Patterson Road. The Western Slope and eastern Utah grocery chain has filed its application with the Grand Junction Planning Department to build the long-planned store on a vacant eight-acre parcel on the southeast corner of the intersection. The company won approvals for the development in 2009, but never built.
