Transportation Plan

The Town of Golden is working to develop a community wide Transportation Plan to help shape the future of transportation in Golden over the next 20 years.

Transportation is a big part of our daily lives, it affects how we move throughout town, how our community looks and feels, and how we interact with one another. The Transportation Plan will recommend short, medium and long-term improvements that will help residents of Golden move through the community in a more safe and efficient way whether by car, on foot, or on wheels.

Final Plan Summer/Fall  2022

Through the planning process, the Town will work to identify various strategies and projects to improve the transportation network for all users. The final Transportation Plan will provide medium and long-term plans for capital improvements required to accommodate projected growth and anticipated developments, respond to new transportation needs and trends, and develop a strategy for prioritizing the capital improvements. This plan will provide the basis for creating a road Development Cost Charge (DCC) applicable to developers to help offset the costs associated with road improvements related to future growth. This would provide another funding tool, in addition to taxation and grant funding.

Public Engagement Round 3: Draft Plan Check-in 

The draft Golden Transportation Plan was provided to residents of Golden for review and input from August 17 to 30, 2022.

Next Steps

After we analyze the feedback collected in August, staff will make further adjustments and refinements to the plan before presenting it to Council for their endorsement by the end of 2022.
