Get Involved

Your Voice, Your City!

Local government works best when the community gets involved – we want to hear your voice!

It’s our goal to provide different ways for you to share your perspectives, ideas and questions on issues that impact the community. Whether that means coming to a public meeting on a specific date or logging in on your computer after a long day of living your life, we want – need – to hear from you. After all, it’s Your Voice, Your City”!

Guiding Golden

Not everyone can drop everything and come to a public meeting at a specific date and time. That’s why your online voice is just as important to us.

Guiding Golden provides a place for our community to gather online on their own schedules, and engage on issues that matter. From neighborhood plans to long-term construction projects, you can learn about issues with both short- and long-term impact, and help guide the decisions being made today that will direct where we are headed in the future.

Community Engagement Calendar

This calendar shows all of your opportunities to get involved and engage with our City government. We invite you to attend any/all of these events, based on your interest in the various topics. Thank you for taking the time to make your voice heard, and make a difference!
