Hi there. There's a post on Castle Rock Talk (Facebook) about a gas station and liquor store going in at the intersection of Plum Creek and South Lake Gulch Road. Is this correct? Or not so much?

The short answer is that there is no formal development application at this time. However, Town staff has had informal conversations with a development team proposing to build a gas station and small strip mall at the corner of Plum Creek Parkway and Gilbert Street. The development team has also submitted a Preliminary Project Application to the Town to request information from the Town about possibly developing this area. The preliminary application is not a formal land use application. Instead, it is a way for the developer to find out the uses that are currently allowed on the site and the process for moving forward, should they choose to do so. (View that application on our Development Activity Map - http://gis.crgov.com/hyperlinks/external/IYBY/BaldwinParkEstates_2.pdf   )  

Commercial uses are allowed; however any development of this area would be required to go through a public hearing for Interface Regulations, to be in compliance with the rules required on commercial properties next to residential uses.  At this time, that developer is still looking at what they would need to do before submitting and have not yet made a formal land use application to the Town, and there are currently several issues related to infrastructure, traffic and other things that need to be evaluated and resolved before the idea could move forward.

To see other preliminary applications and projects currently going through the Town’s development process, see our map at CRgov.com/DevelopmentActivity.
