Election Commission finalizes plan for new six Council districts

News-Town3

Following the election last May, the Election Commission was charged with redistricting from seven to six Council districts. Town Council received the determination and final redistricting map at its meeting Tuesday. In total, the Election Commission’s determination found more than 16,212 voters (about 35 percent) will be changing districts.

The commission is required to keep the number of voters in each district within 15 percent of each other. That means the district with the lowest number of registered voters must have at least 85 percent as many voters as the district with the highest number of registered voters. Additionally, in this case, the commission was required to eliminate a district (District 7) to transition Council into the voter-approved six Council districts and a Mayor elected at large.

The new election districts are:

  • District 1 (western portions of The Meadows)
    • Generally, areas north/west of Butterfield Crossing Drive, west of Meadows Boulevard and adjacent to Coachline Road (some of these areas have moved from District 3)
  • District 2 (northeast Castle Rock)
    • West of Interstate 25
      • Castlegate, Promenade, Factory Shops and Castleton
    • East of Interstate 25
      • Diamond Ridge, Maher Ranch, Sapphire Pointe, Del Sol and Timber Canyon
      • Liberty Village, Cobblestone Ranch, Castle Oaks and Terrain (moved from District 5)
      • Metzler Ranch north of Founders Parkway
  • District 3 (eastern portions of The Meadows and Red Hawk)
    • Generally, areas south/east of Butterfield Crossing Drive and east of Meadows Boulevard, including the Town Center (some of these areas have moved from District 1)
    • Red Hawk and Castle Highlands (moved from District 4)
  • District 4 (Central Castle Rock and Downtown)
    • West of Interstate 25
      • Westside, Citadel Station and Castle Meadows
    • East of Interstate 25
      • Metzler Ranch south of Founders Parkway (moved from District 2)
      • The Woodlands (moved from District 5)
      • Castle North, Downtown (DDA boundary), Craig and Gould, and Memmen Ridge
      • Glovers and Fairgrounds (moved from District 6)
  • District 5 (Southeast Castle Rock)
    • Founders Village (portions moved from District 7)
    • Castlewood Ranch (moved from District 7)
  • District 6 (South Castle Rock)
    • Crystal Valley Ranch, Heckendorf Ridge, Plum Creek and Brookside
    • The Oaks (moved from District 7)
    • Young American and Homestead Village (moved from District 4)
    • Dawson Ridge

Election districts are important for Town elections – including elections for Town Councilmembers. Keeping the number of registered voters within each district as equal as possible helps ensure every neighborhood is represented equally at Town Council meetings.

According to Town Charter, the districts will be reevaluated again in 2021. More information, along with an interactive election district map that allows residents to enter their address to determine their election district, is available at CRgov.com/electiondistricts.
