Strategic priorities highlighted in Town of Golden’s quarterly report

Not everything the Town of Golden accomplishes is visible to the community, but a quarterly report highlights the Town's achievements.

Not everything the Town of Golden accomplishes is visible to the community, but a quarterly report (covering the first two quarters of 2014) highlights the strategic priorities that have been accomplished, as well as what is currently being worked on.

“It’s an interesting report, and sometimes when you see it all compiled you can really see what’s being done,” said Mayor Christina Benty “Not everything is obvious, yet everything is very important.”

The report not only brings to light the strategic priorities like a renewed Permissive Tax Exemption Policy (which has been completed), but also the work plan highlights such as the Kicking Horse River ice jam monitoring and actioning.

Council’s strategic priorities have been separated into three categories – now, next and advocacy. It is expected that by the end of the year 90 per cent of the original and collective “now”, and 80 per cent of the original and collective “next” priorities will be complete.

The report allows Golden residents to see exactly what the Town has been working on, how much of each project is complete, what the next priority is, and why it has been deemed a priority.

The report is available to the public both on the Town of Golden website,, as well as on their Facebook page.
