Community Listening Session with Golden Police
Golden Police Chief Bill Kilpatrick and Golden City Manager Jason Slowinski invite you to a virtual listening session focused on the topic of Racial Equity issues at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 29. The primary goal of the session is to listen to questions, suggestions, feedback, and stories from the community to create better understanding between the city and community members, particularly community members of color. Golden Police strives for our residents, visitors, and college students from across the globe to feel safe and welcome. This virtual event is one of our first steps in the process to make Golden a more welcoming place.
The next step will be to host a virtual Community Town Hall to take a deeper dive into the topics brought up during the listening session. Stay tuned for details on that.

Proclamation Reaffirming Golden’s Continued Commitment to Being a Welcoming and Inclusive Community
Golden has long been a welcoming and inclusive place to live or visit. Almost 70 years ago, our community erected an iconic arch across Washington Avenue to welcome residents and travelers to Golden. Lu Holland, a civic leader and the owner of the Holland House (now the Table Mountain Inn), intended the arch to “proclaim to one and all that they are valuable and precious to us and we’re glad that they are here.”
