Partnering with Cartographic Edge Inc., RCC recently completed a survey for upcoming improvements at the Grand Junction Regional Airport for Armstrong Consultants. Armstrong is the lead consulting engineer for upcoming improvements, and contracted RCC to develop an accurate topographic map of the project area. RCC established a network of ground control which CEI used to combine aerial imagery and LIDAR mapping to develop a high accuracy base map from over 3,000,000 data points. Expanding our local airport is an important economic development project, we are excited to be part of the design team! Stay up-to-date with our latest news and announcements.

One of our owners, Ivan Geer, recently started a 5 year term serving on the Grand Junction Housing Authority board. The Grand Junction Housing Authority is a top notch organization with decades of experience providing sustainable housing solutions to meet the needs of a variety of constituents groups in our community. Through the efforts of Executive Director Jody Kole and her staff, our local housing authority is competitive at obtaining funding for land development and construction projects. As a result, residents of Mesa County receive both the housing assistance and the economic benefits of employing architects, civil engineers, surveyors, and construction professionals. Mr. Geer looks forward to volunteering for the housing authority as his six year term serving the Twenty-First Judicial Nominating Commission for Mesa County, Colorado, comes to close at the end of 2017.
This week Mesa County received two positive economic indicators. First in real estate, where sales have continued to increase in both price and volume through the 4th quarter of 2016, and inventories continue to fall. In addition, the Mesa County School District has experienced an increase in student enrollment. Continuation of these trends bodes well for the land development and construction industries. River City Consultants is excited to continue to provide survey, civil engineering, utility locating, and environmental services on future projects that will result from some moderate growth.

River City is proud to announce one of our projects gaining state-wide attention. We performed survey, civil engineering, and we are completing floodplain modelling and FEMA mapping services for this project: https://www.gjsentinel.com/news/articles/short-and-sweet-little-salt-wash-trail-wins-state#When:05:23:00Z “A short, but well-used section of trail that connects north and south Fruita is a recipient of a Colorado Lottery Starburst Award. The Little Salt Wash Trail is eight-tenths of a mile, but it allows non-motorized access under Interstate 70, U.S. Highway 6 and the Union Pacific railroad. On any given day, pedestrians, bicyclists and dog walkers mingle on the path that connects the city with the James M. Robb Colorado River State Park.” Congratulations to the City of Fruita for developing such a widely used public amenity!
