Five Days Left to Apply for the Historic Preservation Board

We’ve still got one opening on the Historic Preservation Board, so if you are interested be sure to get your application in by March 31. Interviews are tentatively scheduled for the evening of Thursday April 20 at City Hall. The only hard and fast requirement is that you are a resident of the City of Golden. Otherwise, the main requirement is that you care about preserving Golden’s historic character and are willing to put some time into Historic Preservation Board’s efforts to do just that. I served on the Historic Preservation Board before being elected to the City Council and have a high regard for their mission and their efforts.

You should direct any questions to Steve Glueck, the city’s planning director (303-384-8097).
