Lodging Tax and Retail Marijuana Information Open House @ Council Chambers
Aug 3 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm
City Council is considering placing two ballot measures on the November 2021 election. One is regarding the authorization of a tax on overnight commercial lodging visitors to our community in hotels, motels, campgrounds, and short-term rentals. The second item City Council is considering is a measure that would adopt new regulations permitting retail sales of marijuana to adults within the parameters of Amendment 64 and to impose an excise tax on the commercial sales.
Join us for an Open House in Council Chambers (911 10th St.) on August 3 from 5 to 6 p.m. to learn more about these issues and provide input on what you support including parameters or funding scenarios. Learn more about both potential ballot measures at www.GuidingGolden.com.
Stick around after the Open House for the Houselessness Panel presentation, which will immediately follow.
Community Meeting: Presentation on Houselessness @ Council Chambers
Aug 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Come share your questions, ideas, and thoughts about issues involving our Houseless community with city leadership.

The first meeting was on June 28 with a focus on the City listening to your feedback on the topic.

This second meeting will be August 3 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in Council Chambers and online. The meeting’s focus is for the City to respond and talk about what some of the causes are of homelessness locally and what the City is doing about it. The panel will discuss what is happening regionally and locally in terms of the unhoused population. Our Regional Coordinator Kelli Barker will be there to share data and information from the county level, our Homeless Navigator Rebekah Rudabaugh will speak about her work in Golden, and the City Attorney will discuss the constitutional and legal rights and boundaries involving the people who are unsheltered. The panel will end with information about how the City is addressing houselessness and discussing some of the challenges.
