Help Define Golden's Character!

Golden is a unique community full of eclectic neighborhoods, diverse architecture, and historic streets, and we need help cataloging them. Golden Building Blocks is a new, community-driven exercise where the City is asking you, the community, to help us put the best of Golden’s character on display. Over the next several months we want you to take pictures of the buildings and city blocks that you feel best represent the community of Golden and its character.

This exercise will help the City better understand the elements of our city’s homes, buildings, and streets that best reflect Golden’s small-town character. Through this understanding, we will be better able to preserve the character of Golden through future city initiatives. Is it a roof, a yard, a porch, a building’s orientation? Is character best reflected by the sum of all the houses along a city block? Is it the landscaping? You tell us!

How to Participate

As the days are getting warmer and we are all in search of sunshine and exercise, we think this is a great opportunity to break our COVID-19 blues. We are asking the community to take photos of the elements that best capture the spirit of Golden and post them below with a description of how the element contributes to Golden Character. All photos will be on display for the public to view and react to, and who knows? Maybe the photo with the most "likes" will receive a prize!

We hope you will help contribute!
