City of Golden

Educating the community on Golden’s sustainability initiatives and resources is a key component in creating a Greener Golden. We encourage community members to actively take part in sustainability as a public value that supports cultural, economic and environmental health for all citizens. Our goal is to create effective, ongoing two-way communication that informs, educates and inspires community involvement in city-wide sustainability efforts.

Have Your Say on Guiding Golden


Have an opinion about something happening in Golden? lets you have your say on issues important in our community. With forums, surveys, Q&As and more, each project on the site offers different ways to engage, with staff always listening and standing by to answer questions.

We have several ongoing projects, and some that are brand new to the site so it always pays to check in regularly. The most recent addition to the site is an opportunity to weigh in on the 2019/2020 Biennial Budget Process. A good portion of the budget is always used to maintain our existing infrastructure, including water systems, street repair, snow plowing and parks. The City wants to look beyond maintaining infrastructure, however, to see how we can make Golden the best place it can possibly be for our residents and is asking for your ideas.

Another new project looking for ideas comes from the Golden History Museum & Park looking for possible items to add to a 2018 Time Capsule. In November of this year we will be unearthing a time capsule buried 50 years ago and replacing it with a new one. What should we add to the new time capsule for future generations to uncover?

Council Connects is a special feature on the site offering a glimpse at articles City Council members are reading and issues they are thinking about in between meetings.
