Politics, history, and photography

Tomorrow night (Tuesday October 6th), Leadership Golden will present a forum where you can meet and listen to all of the City Council candidates. We have a big slate this fall–lots of choices! Learn more on the City website.

The Historic Preservation Board meets at 6:30 tonight in City Council Chambers. They will review plans for alternations to two properties in historic districts: a second story addition to 1109 11th Street in the 12th Street Historic District; exterior remodeling of 915 Illinois Street, located in the 8th and 9th Street Historic District. For more information, check their meeting packet.

Dave Powers braved the chilly weather on Saturday to catch both “lasts” for the year: the Farmers Market and the Golden Super Cruise. See the photos on our Facebook page.

And speaking of Dave…there’s a show of his photographs hanging at Higher Grounds Coffee Shop (803 14th St.). Stop by for a leisurely coffee or tea, and enjoy some splendid photography while you’re there!

The Golden History Center has been offering neighborhood walking tours this summer. The final one of the season is tomorrow (Tuesday) morning at 10: Courthouse Hill and the Colorado School of Mines Campus. Learn more at
