Coffee with Councilors

Councilors Saoirse Charis-Graves and Casey Brown will have Coffee With Councilors this morning at 10, at the home of Patrick and Lisa Vitry, 618 Golden Eagle Circle (map). There’s a lot going on in town, including the 120 day building moratorium, the disposition of the Astor House, and the imminent $12.25 million acquisition of the Coors office building and property in Goosetown (to be voted on this Thursday, April 11th). Here’s your chance to discuss it with the two District councilors.

The Jefferson County Volunteer Fair takes place from 11AM-2PM at Foothills Animal Shelter, 580 McIntyre Street (map). If you’ve been looking for an organization to support with your time, you’ll find many options at this event.

There are still a few slots available for the Library’s Fuzzy Friends Sleepover. Drop off a favorite stuffed animal today, then attend a slideshow and storytime at 1PM tomorrow to see the critters’ sleepover antics.

Please dress warmly and bring a headlamp or flashlight. Hiking poles and footwear traction devices will be beneficial if the trails are icy. Program details….

Golden History and Warm Feet

November 17, 2018

Golden History ParkThe Golden History Park (formerly Clear Creek History Park) is offering a Homesteaders’ Day today.  Drop by the park any time between 10AM and 2PM to experience 19th century homesteading, explore the historic cabins, try woodstove cooking, learn about blacksmithing, and take a lesson at the one-room schoolhouse. This is a free event.


At 3:30, the Golden History Roundtable meets at the Library. There are a few people from Golden’s pioneer era who are highlighted again and again–particularly William Loveland, Edward Berthoud, and George West. Those guys were all incredibly important to Golden’s founding, and they deserve all the attention they get, but there were other, equally important founders. One of these was Charles Welch. Welch was active in the industries that put Golden on the map, including mining, railroads, irrigation, and real estate development. He donated the land for the Golden cemetery and for the first Colorado School of Mines building. The Welch’s Addition neighborhood (approximately 19th-24th, Ford to Cheyenne) was his doing, as was the Welch Ditch that bisects our town. Councilor Paul Haseman has been researching Welch and will tell us all about him!  Note:  Yesterday I said the roundtable would meet at 2:30.  We’ll meet at 3:30!


Warm Socks for Cold Feet in Golden ColoradoThe #1 thing most needed by homeless men, women and children is NEW socks. Drop off unused socks during the month of November at the Golden Visitors Center (1010 Washington), Golden City Hall (911 10th St.), and participating schools and churches.


During Thursday night’s City Council meeting, the City Manager mentioned that they had received 5 proposals for redevelopment of the Astor House.  No word yet as to the content of the proposals.

Jefferson Symphony Concert in Parfet Park - Golden CO

The Downtown Development Authority meets tonight at 6:30 in City Council Chambers. They will consider two requests for sign grants: a $2500 request to fund half the cost of signs for the new Colorado Plus Cidery and Pub going in at 1100 Arapahoe Street (the old laundromat), and $200 to help finance signs for Adventure West Tubing, a seasonal tube rental business running in the Golden Mill parking lot.  The Jefferson Symphony Orchestra has requested $8500 to pay for the annual concert in Parfet Park that marks the end of the Fine Arts Festival. This year’s concert will take place on Sunday, August 19, 2018.  See the meeting packet for more information.

Tuesday Preview
The Railroad Museum will have their monthly Storytime and Craft tomorrow morning at 10. The Library will have Lego Play & Build at 4PM. The Lookout Mountain Nature Center will offer Nature Yoga at 5PM (register now–they usually fill up). The Library’s monthly book group meets from 6-7PM, discussing The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick.

Nature Yoga at the Lookout Mountain Nature Center

The Local Licensing Authority meets tomorrow afternoon (Tuesday, June 19th) at 2:30 in City Council Chambers. They will review several applications for new licenses: a new restaurant (called “Launch) at 18455 W. Colfax Ave.; the new “Origin Red Rocks” hotel at 18485 W. Colfax Ave., and a new restaurant (called “Tributary Food Hall) at 701 12th St. Public hearing for each of these licenses will be held on July 25th.

Foss Liquor - Golden ColoradoThe judge will also consider three request to modify premises for existing liquor licensed businesses: Barrels & Bottles plans a 5th anniversary party on September 2nd and 3rd, and they want to use the parking lot north of the building for their celebration. Dirty Dogs Roadhouse plans a special event on July 14th and they want to sell liquor in their parking lot that day. The Foss Company is reconfiguring the space for their liquor store at 1224 Washington Avenue. Based on the drawings provided, it looks like the new version of the store will be smaller and will be located only on the west side of the building. The storefront on Washington Avenue will be dedicated to a new retail use.  See the meeting packet for more information.
