Undeveloped land known as the Golden Overlook is home to a variety of flora and fauna and the C-470 bikeway. It has excellent solar energy potential. But it has now been targeted for industrial / commercial use by developers.
The Golden Overlook is a prime location for commercial solar energy, which can help Golden achieve its renewable energy goals. It also serves as a trailhead to the Green Mountain Open Space and hosts the C-470 bikeway. Learn more about this unique part of Golden.
A grassroots ballot initiative is now circulating in Golden to give all voters in Golden a chance to support open space, parks, trails, community gardens, and solar energy gardens in the Golden Overlook. Learn how to add your name to this ballot initiative.
