What is annexation and how does the process work?

Annexation is the process by which a property becomes incorporated into the Town of Castle Rock’s jurisdiction. With that annexation, the area benefits from services the Town provides, such as public safety, snow removal, street maintenance, park maintenance and more. It also means taxable units or sales tax from that property help pay for those services. All annexation proposals must follow a State-mandated process, which includes public hearings. As part of that process, Town Council must make three decisions:

Substantial Compliance: Does the annexation petition comply with State Code?

Eligibility: Is the property eligible to be annexed in accordance with State Code?

Annexation: Should the property be annexed?

The Town has several proposals under consideration. Learn more and view the annexation proposals at CRgov.com/Annexation.
