Big Idea: Civic Center/Clear Creek Corridor

The City of Golden purchased 7.27 acres of land east of Ford Street along the Clear Creek Corridor which now gives the Golden community the opportunity to address several longstanding community goals:

Enhancing civic and cultural community activities

Realizing the potential of the creek corridor

Consolidating and improving municipal facilities and service delivery


What does a future Golden Civic Center look like to you?

What do you want to see along the Clear Creek Corridor?

Q&A

  • 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.

    Karen Oxman asked 10 months ago

    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.
