November 15, 2018

The Sustainability Board will meet at 6PM in the Public Works building, 1445 10th St. They will compile feedback and draft preliminary recommendations for goals to discuss with City Council at an upcoming meeting.


Hunger Free Golden - Golden ColoradoCity Council meets at 6:30 in City Council Chambers. They will hear from Bethany Thomas, the Chair of Hunger Free Golden. This group has accomplished a number of things this year to ensure that low-income families in Golden have access to fresh, healthy food. They have arranged for GoFarm to distribute 311 local food shares. They have worked to increase enrollment in SNAP (formerly food stamps) and WIC programs. They set up a “Healthy Corner Store” pilot program at the East Tincup Market (17881 W. Colfax Avenue – Map). They’re doing good work.

After that, Council will adjourn to an Executive Session (no public access) “For Determining Positions Relative To Matters That May Be Subject To Negotiations; Developing Strategy For Negotiations; And Instructing Negotiators Regarding Property Lying East Of Ford Street Near 10th Street.” This often means that the City plans to buy some property. In this fall’s budget discussions, City staff has been emphasizing how tight our finances are, so perhaps it means something different this time. “East of Ford near 10th Street” is a pretty small area, so it will be interesting to learn what they’re discussing.
