The upcoming year brings with it one of the biggest and most exciting projects in Golden history! As a community, we have the opportunity to create the next phase of the Clear Creek Corridor and collectively set in motion a plan that will shape the Heart of Golden for generations to come.
Earlier this year, the City of Golden purchased 7.27 acres of land east of Ford Street along the Clear Creek Corridor. This enhanced corridor in the heart of Golden provides the community the chance to address several longstanding community goals:
- Enhancing civic and cultural community activities
- Realizing the potential of the creek corridor
- Consolidating and improving municipal facilities and service delivery
This past Saturday, the City of Golden kicked off its public engagement process for the Heart of Golden 2020 project. More than 70 people came to see the building that currently stands at 311 10th St. (part of the City’s acquisition) and then tour the full parcel of additional land available to us for redevelopment. Many people left comments and thoughts on maps of the area, and many others are providing feedback on our engagement website, www.GuidingGolden.com.
There are many chances ahead for you to get involved too! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help change the future of the Corridor, located right in the heart of our beautiful city. Visit the Guiding Golden website for the very latest engagement dates and other ways you can contribute.
