Action Strategies for Healthy Housing:

  1. Complete inventory of lead service lines to homes, as the foundation for a lead service line replacement initiative.
  2. Implement city-wide education programs related to indoor healthy and safety hazards.
  3. Establish a rental registry to assist in identifying housing health hazards.

Rental Registry Engagement:

The City of Golden staff are exploring the benefits and drawbacks of implementing a rental registry. As the first step in determining the future of a rental registry, renters, landlords, property managers, and other interested parties are encouraged to participate in several engagement opportunities. These includes listening sessions, written feedback, and options for one-on-one meetings with the City's Affordable Housing Policy Coordinator, Lauren McKinney. Please see key dates for more information about the listening sessions or email lmckinney@cityofgolden.net to provide private feedback.

Background:

Golden is proud to have been a part of the Community of Practice for Healthy Housing Equity, led by the National League of Cities (NLC), to develop community-wide approaches that support healthy housing in our community. Golden joined five other cities, towns, and villages from across the nation to do intensive work on healthy housing and health equity.

Through this effort, the City hopes to bring a stronger focus to its existing housing stock with a focus on preserving existing housing in the city while addressing inequities and improving the quality of life for our residents.

Golden's Healthy Housing Community Vision:

All residents have a home that's free of health and safety hazards.

  • Residents will have homes in healthy neighborhoods (access to green space, healthy food, and active transportation).
  • Senior residents will have fewer health emergencies in their homes.
  • Children will have improved air and water quality within their homes

The Golden Healthy Housing team is comprised of leadership from City Council, Public Works, Community Development, Housing, and Sustainability with the goal of bringing resources from all these departments to address ways to improve the health of our existing residents through the housing in which they live. Work is expected to continue on Action Plans for this effort through December 2023.

The Community of Practice is an extension of the NLC Healthy Housing Local Action Challenge. To learn more, please visit the Healthy Housing Local Action Challenge webpage.

  • As part of the City’s efforts to promote Healthy Housing, City staff are exploring the benefits and drawbacks of implementing a rental registry in Golden. As the first step in determining the future of a rental registry, renters, landlords, property managers and other interested parties are encouraged to participate in several engagement opportunities detailed below.

    The purpose of a rental registry is to create and maintain a comprehensive list of long-term rental properties and relevant contact information of landlords, tenants, and property managers. This information would enable swift and effective communication from City staff in emergencies or for official city matters related to rental properties, and help the City gain valuable insight into the long-term rental properties, including aspects of health and safety, transit, and affordability.
