Support Golden Businesses

May 16, 2019

City Council will meet tonight at 6:30 in City Council Chambers. This is a study session, so no public comment will be accepted. They will hear an overview of the proposed R-2 zoning code updates. These are the changes the city is proposing in response to citizen dismay regarding recent growth and oversized redevelopment projects.

They will also hear an update on the Family Justice Center and discuss new building, construction, fire, and electrical codes. They will hear an update on the use of our green circulator buses. Read their meeting packet to learn more about these topics….
