The Golden Triangle Partnership (GTP) is a newly-formed 501c3 nonprofit organization into which the former Golden Triangle Association (GTA), a Denver Registered Neighborhood Organization first formed in 1993, has merged its operations. The Golden Triangle is the area bounded by Speer Boulevard, Colfax Avenue and Lincoln Street. The mission of the GTP is to advocate and promote initiatives which represent the best interests of residents, businesses, institutions and others who live and work in the Golden Triangle.
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 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 Neighborhood Plan was adopted in 2014, again with strong GTA support and community involvement. This plan presented great opportunity for community growth and enhancement. The GTA actively solicited input into the implementation of this plan, and collaborated with the many other organizations and institutions in its creation. In 2016, the Golden Triangle was designated a Colorado Creative District, a designation that reflects its characteristics, with multiple galleries, museums and other creative businesses.
The GTA merged all its operations into the GTP, effective January 1, 2017. Also on January 1st, the Golden Triangle Partnership welcomed its new director, Leslie Horna. (See the News page). We look forward to a new phase of creativity and growth in the Golden Triangle.
