Net Zero Energy Code Project Update

The Community Sustainability Advisory Board invites you to join this special meeting tomorrow from 6 - 8:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers room at City Hall (911 10th St.) for an update of the Net Zero Energy Code project.

Since the Boards’ efforts last summer, a consultant has been hired and will present their findings at this meeting which will address:

  • An evaluation of recent legal challenges to natural gas bans in other cities,
  • A recommendation of a code strategy that could meet Golden’s energy goals in the context of emerging legal obstacles and
  • An evaluation of the efficacy and feasibility of implementing a net zero energy code for new construction.

The consultant will be available to answer questions of Board members. This meeting is open to all interested members of the public and will be hosted in-person and will stream online on our Agendas & Meetings page.

Overdose and Fentanyl: Facts, Prevention and Response

March 25, 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. 

Miners Alley Performing Arts Center (1100 Miners Alley)


Overdose and Fentanyl: Facts, Prevention and Response is part of a series of free classes offered to the Golden community by the Rotary Club of Golden.

With rising rates and an ever-changing drug supply, overdose is something that affects us all in some way, and for many of us, this includes on the job or when volunteering. Fentanyl has brought the topic closer than ever, and it’s important to have the correct information to feel safe and confident in our environments while helping others stay safe too. This 60-minute training is intended to provide information, prepare participants, and get everyone talking about overdose, fentanyl, and naloxone (Narcan) – all important knowledge that can help everyone save a life. 


Speaker: Carrie Hankins, MPH, Harm Reduction Education & Resource Coordinator, Jefferson County Public Health.
