The Golden Triangle Association (GTA) represents the interests of property owners, businesses, and residents that are in the area bounded by Speer Boulevard, Lincoln Street, and Colfax Avenue in Denver. It was first organized in 1993.
The GTA consists of an entire volunteer board. This volunteer board oversees the committees, projects, and task forces. These three items work collectively to accomplish a variety of marketing, economic development, and advocacy activities. The Golden Triangle Association has one ultimate goal in mind. That goal is to improve property values, the quality of life in the community of the Golden Triangle, and improve the business environment on a continual basis.
Within the Golden Triangle community there are museums, galleries, live music events, restaurants, theatres, and beautiful architecture. Some of these famous venues include The Denver Art Museum, The Denver Public Library, the Byers-Evans House, and The Colorado Historical Society.
The Golden Triangle Association and board of volunteers are involved in many community projects such as graffiti remediation, liter clean-up, and pet waste stations. Any money that is raised is reinvested back into the neighborhood.
Some of the events that are held by the GTA are:
- Free First Friday Art Tours—these free art tours take place in the Golden Triangle from 5 to 9 pm every month. There is a free GTMD Art Bus shuttle that will take the participants of the art tours around the neighborhood to all the openings of the art shows. At the participating galleries, you can pick up a free map.
- Third Thursday Party—every third Thursday of the month the GTA has a neighborhood party from 5 to 7 pm. There are museum tours, pub crawls, and open houses.
In 1998, after four years of the board and planning office, they have an extensive development plan in place so that any new development to the area will have to adhere to the vision that the Golden Triangle Association has for this community.
Each summer along Speer Boulevard, the committee is in charge of funding, planting, and maintenance of the flower beds. They are hoping that this project will encourage all the property owners, residents, and businesses within the Triangle Community will work to improve the appearance of their property as well. The GTA is hoping that all they are doing will help to make the Golden Triangle a very desirable place to live, work, and play.
