Why is shopping locally important?

As a Town focused on character, your unique business is vital. You’re part of Castle Rock’s fabric and small-Town feel.  

At the same time, the Town relies heavily on sales tax to fund police, fire, snow removal, roadwork, parks maintenance and other services our community needs.

You see, residents pay, on average, just $35 per year in property tax. That funds about 17 days of fire and police services. Funding for the rest of Town services for the rest of the year is from sales tax.
