About the Economic Development Commission

The Economic Development Commission (EDComm) was established by Golden City Council in June of 1999. After applications were accepted for appointment to the Commission, candidates were interviewed by City Council and eight members were appointed in August of 1999. Each member has a broad base of professional and complementary expertise in the fields of finance, advertising, retail, and economic development.

The Commission’s duties include developing a structure and strategy for marketing/promoting the Golden community. Membership is for staggered four year terms.
