Recently, Palisade residents have been contacted by telephone scammers! If anyone calls stating they are the IRS, a government official, or a relative recently jailed, and asks for money, it is probably a scam. Do not send money to strangers asking for a wire transfer, or money order to clear a warrant. Please verify with your family or relatives if there is a reported arrest, or injury first. No one from the police department will ask you to wire money in any capacity, nor will they have an official, or advocate ask you to complete a wire transfer of funds.

Palisade receives economic development grant for Sport Shooting Complex
Palisade, Colorado/ USA
December 17, 2014
TOWN OF PALISADE, Colo. - The Town of Palisade has been awarded a $2 million dollar economic development grant from the Colorado Department of Local Affairs, bringing the proposed Sport Shooting and Education Complex at the decommissioned Cameo Power Plant closer to reality.
In partnership with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, the Town of Palisade had submitted a state Energy and Mineral Impact Assistance grant request for the funds in continuing efforts to develop a world-class shooting range in the Grand Valley.
The project was reviewed based on a variety of factors, including its connection to energy impact, degree of need, measurable outcomes, amount of request and relationship to community goals, level of local match and community support, management capacity and readiness to go.
We are pleased to have been awarded full funding.
This is a formal partnership with Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The Town of Palisade will purchase the land and then lease the site back to CPW for the design and construction of the facility.
As planned, the facility will have ranges for archery, pistol, rifle and shotguns and will feature a focus on outdoor education.
The Palisade Town Board of Trustees has pursued this project as a means to establish a year-round facility that will bring visitors to Palisade and the Grand Valley.
Hunting and Fishing is a $1.8 billion dollar industry in Colorado. Nationally, sport shooting has a total economic impact of $27.8 billion dollars and sportsmen contribute $2.9 billion every year for conservation with an additional $4.95 billion in annual federal tax revenue.
The Town of Palisade is widely known for our great peaches and wine. We believe in growing our outdoor and indoor sports opportunities is beneficial for the regional economy.
