Join Golden Planning staff for an Open House to discuss new utility (water, wastewater, and drainage) rate structures on Wednesday, August 14, from 6 to 8 p.m in the Golden Community Center.

Stop by the Golden Utilities open house in the Golden Community Center on Wednesday, August 14 from 6 to 8 p.m. to learn more about your water, wastewater and stormwater utilities and potential changes ahead for how we charge for these services.

The open house will include stations that provide information about the water, wastewater and stormwater systems, water resources, rate study, water quality, and conservation. This is your chance to provide feedback on how Golden charges for utility services.

Your input is part of the rate study currently underway, to look at how customers are charged for water, sewer, and stormwater drainage services. A committee made up of experts and local residents worked for the past six months to evaluate the current system and ensure any changes are fair, equitable and tied to the demands that different types of customers place on the system.

The open house format is intended to be flexible to so please stop in at your convenience during the event!

Colorado Classic Bike Race @ Downtown Golden
Aug 23 @ 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

Colorado Classic Finish LineThe Colorado Classic comes to Golden on Saturday, August 24 and the route they have chosen will be an exciting day of fast-paced action right downtown.

On paper, Stage 3 in Golden looks like a sprinter’s delight with seven swift laps of a nine-mile circuit that starts and finishes under the iconic Golden arch downtown. But don’t be fooled as the short steep climb up the historic Washington Avenue is enough for a mini-Queen of the Mountain on the last lap. Seven laps means the racers will come through downtown SEVEN times – that’s a lot of great opportunity for spectating. New Terrain Brewery will also have a front row seat to the action, as the route will take the race right in front of the brewery.

Visit www.coloradoclassicgolden.com for all things race related, and watch an animation of the race route.
