Planning

Honoring past commitments

In a thriving community, it’s no surprise that growth is on the mind of many Castle Rock residents. Colorado is experiencing unprecedented growth, and the Town of Castle Rock is no exception. While keeping up with the steady pace of growth is challenging, the Town insists that new development be high quality and consistent with our community character. How are we doing that?

Much of Castle Rock was zoned beginning in the 1980s, and landowners are legally entitled to develop the land according to previously approved zoning requirements. While Town Council is obligated to honor the legal contracts of the past, there are plans in place for responsible, quality growth.
