Update on Golden entrance sign Print Article Font Size

The Town of Golden would like to provide an update and clarification to the community regarding the new Golden entrance sign at the junction of Highways 1 and 95.

We are admittedly approximately one month behind schedule on this project. This delay is due to miscommunications and statements of priorities beyond our influence between our main contractor and their multiple subcontractors.

In light of this delay, we have worked with our main contractor to install a temporary banner at the site. We remind residents that this project – including the temporary banner - is entirely paid for from the Resort Municipality Initiative, a fund available only to 14 communities which must be utilized for tourism and attraction development and nothing else.

We are very excited to see this project finished and are disappointed that its completion didn’t meet our original desired timeline. The updated schedule we have received states that the project is expected to be substantially completed by early August.

Thank you for your interest in this project – we think it will be a great new attraction for us.

We welcome further comments! Email enquiries@golden.ca.
