Community Engagement

Community engagement is a key element necessary for great living. So said Golden Valley residents who participated in Envision Golden Valley, the City's visioning process.

To promote and support that concept, the City Council created a framework to help connect businesses, organizations, and individuals who want to improve their city and get involved in their community. The City of Golden Valley offers several opportunities to serve your community. There are also a number of ways to connect with others in the community through grass-roots initiatives and existing organizations.
