Xcel Energy is planning to perform maintenance on gas mains located under Ford Street beginning February 10 and running through February 29.
The work requires the closure of Ford Street from 10th Street to 7th Street during this time period, but detours will be in place to guide traffic around the closure. It is not anticipated that this activity will close the adjacent Tucker Gulch Trail, which can serve as an alternate route for pedestrian and bicycle traffic.
Please email J. Puhr at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
In the November 2019 election, Golden voters elected then Ward 4 Councilor Laura Weinberg to serve as the new Mayor. On January 9, Weinberg resigned her Ward 4 seat to be sworn in as Mayor, leaving the Ward 4 seat open and requiring a special election be held to fill the vacancy.
If you are interested in serving as the Ward 4 representative on City Council, you must be a resident of Golden living in Ward 4 and meet the following qualifications:
- Be an elector of the City.
- Be a citizen of the United States for at least five years.
- Be a resident within the City of Golden for at least one year immediately preceding the election.
Voter registration status may be checked online at govotecolorado.com or by contacting the Jefferson County Elections Office at 303-271-8111.
Check the map of Council Wards and Districts to determine whether you reside in Ward 4.
Each candidate must circulate and submit a nomination petition to the City Clerk’s Office. The petition must be signed by at least 25 registered electors who reside within Ward 4. Candidates are encouraged to obtain more than the required 25 signatures.
Nomination petitions are available in the City Clerk’s Office in City Hall, 911 10th Street. The last day to return and file nomination petitions with the City Clerk’s office is February 18, 2020 by 5 p.m.
The City Clerk will validate petition signatures and declare the official candidates in the Special Election.
The survey starts with a six-minute video introducing the Heart of Golden 2020 project, followed by a few questions that will take about 5 minutes to complete. We can’t wait to hear what you have to say!
Golden, Colorado is rich with culture, outdoor activities, scenic beauty, thriving businesses, and friendly people, but the City’s origins are largely thanks to another valuable resource – gold. A small amount of gold discovered in Clear Creek attracted the area’s earliest settlers in the mid-19th century and Golden City quickly became an important supply stop for gold miners seeking their fortunes in the adjacent mountains. Farmers soon discovered the rich soil in the valley that is now home to the Coors complex, and Golden City further swelled as coal mining and clay extraction industries settled in the area, utilizing the region’s ample natural resources. Golden City became the capital of the federally recognized Colorado Territory in 1862, and the territorial legislature met from 1862 to 1867 in the building that is now home to the Old Capitol Grill restaurant. By the end of the 1860s, Golden City had been elected the seat of Jefferson County and the capital of the provisional Jefferson Territory. Locals were outraged when neighboring Denver snagged the honor of becoming capital of the newly formed state in 1876, but the loss of name distinction did nothing to dampen Golden’s vital growth – business was booming. Today, with the official name of City of Golden, the town continues to thrive. It offers residents and visitors an abundance of recreational, cultural and culinary opportunities. Come live, work and play with us in our modern town with an old west flair!
