As downtown Grand Junction prepares for the biggest months of the year for events and tourism, some changes are being made to enhance the downtown experience.

One of the biggest changes this year is the addition of volunteer Downtown Ambassadors. These people will be available to welcome both locals and visitors to the downtown area.

These ambassadors will be trained to answer questions about downtown including how to make spending time there more interesting and fun.

The ambassadors will generally be available Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. starting in late May.

Downtown Ambassadors will also be an important liaison between people downtown and Grand Junction Police ensuring a comfortable safe place for people spending time there.

The Grand Junction Police Department will also have more of a presence downtown by increasing the number of officers assigned to the Community Resource Unit.

In addition to ensuring safety, lawful conduct, and traffic and parking patrol, officers want to build friendly relationships with residents, businesses and visitors.

The officers will ride bicycles making it easy to respond to everything from simple questions to emergencies.

There are still openings for volunteer Downtown Ambassadors. Contact Lori Gregor at 970 254-3876 for information. The next training session will be May 23.
