Golden is already recognized as a regional cycling destination with access to the foothills. On summer weekends, thousands of residents and visitors enjoy walking through Downtown Golden and along Clear Creek. To address the needs of managing Golden’s growing popularity for pedestrians and bicyclists, Golden Planning staff, with the help of Muller Engineering, is working to develop a Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan that will provide the groundwork to ensure everyone—residents, visitors and commuters—has access to safe and efficient multimodal travel. More than just infrastructure, the Plan will focus on expanding our walking and biking culture through partnerships, programs and policy.
We want to hear from our community as we kick off this effort. Join us for a Bike and Pedestrian Master Plan Open House on Tuesday, August 30 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in Council Chambers. You can also take a survey and get involved on GuidingGolden.com.
