Pesky neighbors? Or sunny-weather hot spot?

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. A brand new spot, complete with outdoor beach volleyball courts and a bar, is looking to take advantage of the sunshine in Western Colorado.

Some of their neighbors, however, are nervous about the possible outcomes.

'Volleys GJ' is located on 3rd Street just north of North Avenue and it's proximity to several drug and alcohol recovery facilities in the area is putting some of their neighbors on edge.

"People who are trying to get clean and sober and stay clean and sober, there's a good atmosphere within this two to three block area for those people that are trying to do that," says Salvation Army Major Dan Wilson.

The surrounding community hopes Volleys will be a fun and safe place for people on the Western Slope to enjoy.

But they say until they truly see it up and running, they'll continue to be a little nervous about their new neighbors.

Volleys is set to open this Saturday and they expect a big turn out for their opening weekend.
