If City Offices and the Golden History Museum move to the new facility, perhaps consideration could be given to separating the Jeffco library into the two adjacent buildings; the current library could be an Adult library and the current History Museum could be converted into a Children’s library. As the Jeffco Library is a different governmental entity than the city of Golden, this may not be possible or may be difficult to accomplish, but it would be nice to accommodate the different library needs and uses of adults and children into two separate facilities.
Thank you for your thoughts. The library is a
very important part of Golden and we are committed to looking at different
partnerships that might exist for us.
Will you include workforce housing on some of the property if its acquired? This area has long been considered a good location for that land use so long as it truly is workforce housing. You could requires that potential residents submit proof of at least 32 hours/week in Golden like other communities such as Breckenridge and Pitkin County.
As we are in the early stages of
investigating this project, we are considering many different ideas. Workforce
housing could be a good fit for this project. We will continue to consider all
options and keep our community updated as we move forward.
How would acquistion of this property work with RTD for extension of the G line, as RTD has the ROW to do that? It could open up TOD and affordable housing options.
We are very interested in working
with RTD to expand transportation options in Golden including the possibility
of connecting to or extending the G line, whether this project moves forward or
if another use is identified. We will update the project page with any new
information on this and other topics, please stay tuned.
