On February 5, the Greenwood Village City Council commended Steve Goldman with an engraved plaque and other mementoes for his service on the city’s planning and zoning commission (P & Z). District two Council Members Anne Ingebretsen and Dave Kerber pointed to his dedication and the example he set as someone who understood “the goal of the city and which direction we were going in.” 

Accepting the commendation, Goldman addressed the council, saying that he “couldn’t have been working for two finer bosses than Anne (Ingebretsen) and Dave (Kerber).” 

Looking back on when he began serving on P & Z in 2015, he said, to Mayor Lantz, “Freda (this reporter) sat right next to me on the dais and both of you, through the last 8 1/2 years, have continued to be good mentors, excellent mentors in helping me along and have done so again and again over that time period.”

Steve Goldman was appointed to P & Z in 2015 at the recommendation of then-GV District Two Council Member Leslie Schluter. He is the only resident of the Landmark Towers who has ever served on P & Z or any other GV board or commission. His replacement, appointed on February 5 via a resolution introduced by Ingebretsen and Kerber, is Jeffrey Litman, who lives elsewhere. We asked Goldman if he felt it was important that the Landmark Towers have a representative on P & Z. He told us, “It’s not imperative, but with about 500 residents living here, it would be fair.”
