Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In August 2020, the Golden City Council met to determine their five strategic success factors for the community. City Council directed the City Manager's Office to develop a Strategic Action Plan that advances the five defined success factors as established by City Council. The five success factors defined by City Council are:

  • Active, Connected, and Sustainable: Golden thoughtfully plans to create comprehensive, connected infrastructure, services, and amenities and preserve a beautiful community existing in harmony with the natural environment.
  • Affordable and Thriving: Golden strives to reduce barriers to affordable living and nurture local business.
  • Safe, Inclusive, and Engaged: Golden is a safe community that works to engage and include all people and provide them with an equal opportunity to thrive.
  • Respected and Relational Governance: Golden builds trusted relationships through transparency, engagement, and collaboration locally and regionally.
  • Quality Services: Golden balances fiscal responsibility with creativity and innovation to fund and deliver quality public services today and in the future.

The Strategic Action Plan identifies organization-wide initiatives, actions, projects, and programs, which will ultimately move the City of Golden closer to reaching strategic success. It is important to note that this plan does not speak to every single action the City will take related to these success factors. Rather, City department directors are committed to providing the necessary training, professional development, work plans, and assignments, so that City staff at all levels can contribute to our overall success through their daily work.

The Strategic Action Plan is fluid. There may be some items included in the Strategic Action Plan is fluid. There may be some items included in the Strategic Action Plan that, over time and through due consideration and research, are determined to not be in the best interest of the City advancing out success factors. Additionally, there may be other unforeseen opportunities in the future that might take priority over these items. Budget considerations, especially for items that require substantial and currently unidentified funding, may impact the ultimate timing of implementing those items. In any case, City Council and City management is committed to regularly reviewing and adjusting this Strategic Action Plan.

Finally, City leadership is dedicated to regularly reporting on the City's collective effort and progress toward achieving the items in this Strategic Action Plan. A comprehensive dashboard of the measures of effectiveness related to the five strategic success factors will be released soon and will be made available through this Guiding Golden page.
