Decisions are made by those who show up

Here are this week’s city meetings.  These are all open to the pubic.  Remember–it’s far more effective to weigh in on an issue before a decision has been made than to be angry about it afterward.  Decisions are made by those who show up–so show up!

Tonight:  the Downtown Development Authority meets at 6:30 in City Council chambers.  They will review a feasibility study for bike-sharing in Golden.  They will consider grant requests from the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, Golden Fine Arts Festival, Golden Music Festival, Golden Chamber for the August Street Fair, Golden Library, Spirits in the Wind Gallery, and the Regis Company.  They will review a survey of the alley between 14th & 15th, and discuss RFPs for holiday lights and two new transit shelters in Parfet Park.  For more information, check their meeting packet.
