City Council Meeting - Golden CO

Affordable Housing
Thanks for all the emails about yesterday’s post. Quite a few people showed up at last night’s city council meeting. Six citizens (three of them Planning Commission members) spoke in support of the resolution and eleven expressed concerns about its potential consequences. The resolution to add Affordable Housing goals to the City’s comprehensive plan passed unanimously.

School is out early today, so the library is hosting Freaky Friday from 2-3:30. They’ll have games, Legos, and crafts.

One Last Night of Terror
In case you need one last hit of Halloween, you have two options. Mines Little Theater Productions is presenting Dracula tonight and tomorrow night at 7PM at the American Mountaineering Center. The doors open at 6:30 and seats are first come/first served. Buy tickets online.

The other last-minute Halloween-ish option is the last Murder, Mayhem, and Madness tour for the season. Should be a good night for it–the moon will be full!

Benefit for Texas Bikers
The Buffalo Rose is hosting a benefit for Texas Bikers (remember the hurricane?) at 8PM, offering biker-themed comedy and music.  Learn more….
