The Golden Triangle Partnership (GTP) is a nonprofit organization formed in Jan. 2017 from the merger of the Golden Triangle Association, a volunteer residential neighborhood association, and Golden Triangle Museum District Association to create one organization representing all residential, business, civic, cultural and community stakeholders.
The Golden Triangle includes Civic Center Park, the City and County of Denver offices, the Colorado State Capitol, Denver Art Museum, U.S. Mint Museum, Clyfford Still Museum, Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, among many other iconic cultural institutions, state and federal offices as well as hundreds of unique business, retail and dining, and thousands of residents.
In June of 2016, the Golden Triangle was designated and certified as a Colorado Creative District by the State of Colorado. This Creative District designation advances the Triangle as an internationally celebrated arts and culture destination – by encouraging urban revitalization, economic development, and support for creative individuals and businesses.
GTP serves as the manager and leader of the District in relation to advocacy, programming & events, neighborhood beautification/maintenance, mobility/transit, neighborhood branding, marketing & communications, and small business and residential support.
The GTP Board of Directors is a volunteer board which oversees the wide range of committees, task forces, working groups and projects that collectively accomplish a wide range of advocacy, marketing, community beautification and economic development activities.
History of the Golden Triangle Leadership
The Golden Triangle Association Registered Neighborhood Organization (GTA) achieved significant accomplishments over the years. In 1994, the B-8-G Zoning Code was passed by the City, largely by collaborative efforts with the GTA. The zoning code laid the groundwork for the extensive development during the past twenty years. The first Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan was subsequently approved by the Mayor in 1998 after four years of collaborative work by a GTA committee, the board, and the city’s planning office. An Urban Design Committee was formed to oversee the neighborhood plan and interpret its vision to prospective developers. That plan served as a guide so that new development would adhere to its vision.
The current Golden Triangle Neighborhood Plan was adopted in 2014 with strong neighborhood support and community involvement. This plan presented great opportunity for community growth and enhancement.
