GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- While the Bureau of Land Management is restructuring and looking to relocate, Grand Junction is making a final push to be the new home of the federal agency.

A new campaign will roll out after the election, targeting leadership at the BLM. The Grand Junction Economic Partnership will be getting a billboard right in front of the BLM offices in D.C., send mailers out to officials there, and make a video of everything done in Grand Junction, to entice the BLM to move here.

It will cost $25,000.

"If we don't get the BLM headquarters, it will have been money well spent because we're pointing out what a great place this is, and all the things that we have and all that we can do here," said Robin Brown, GJEP.

GJEP, the Grand Junction Chamber of Commerce, the city and Mesa County will foot the bill.
