If you love wide open spaces, mountain views, the Colorado River and don’t mind sharing the road with tractors, you will love Loma!
Loma is located in Mesa County and has a population of approximately 1,324 people and right around 463 households. There is not a lot of commercial or residential development in Loma and Mack, which is just the way most people who live out there like it. Most of the land is zoned agricultural, and there is no existing infrastructure to accommodate higher density development, which stops future housing. Loma and Mack are agricultural communities and because there is no sewer systems will likely remain that way. Loma can offer urban dwellers a hobby farm if that is what they want. There are quite a few subdivisions in Loma, some of the more popular are The Canyons, Gold Lake, Kuhl, Red Canyons, Loma Country, Golden Hills and Tierra Bonita. Many of the homes are in areas that are not in subdivisions and do not have any CC&R’s. Home choices include ranches, large and small acreage homes from luxurious to very affordable and some older homes
The old Loma School dating back to the early 1900’s is still standing and the only students are the pigeons. There is an elementary school in Loma, but middle and high school children attend schools in Fruita.
Shopping and services is very limited and commuting to Fruita and Grand Junction for groceries, restaurants and entertainment is easy to do on I-70 east.
