Udall’s visit focuses on monument
U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., will discuss whether to see a change in the designation of Colorado National Monument to that of a national park when he visits Grand Junction on Saturday.
Udall, whose suggestion of a designation change in 2010 drew hundreds to a town hall meeting and sparked a yearlong study, will discuss how changing the monument to a park would boost the economy and create jobs in a 10:30 meeting in the Grand Junction Police Department training room, 555 Ute Ave.
Udall also will meet with veterans at 9 a.m. in the same room.
Also on Saturday, Udall will tour WPX energy’s water-production facility in Parachute, at 1058 County Road 215.
Udall is making a swing through western Colorado and another stop includes a visit at Fiberforge, 1420 Devereaux Road, Glenwood Springs, at 3 p.m. Friday.
