space and not 118 new residences? There are so many negatives against developing that area.
The Town has specific requirements for notifying residents of new development activity. For The Meadows Filing 16, a description of the project, the vicinity map and site plan were made available to the public on the Development Activity Map in July 2018, when the application was first received. The Development Activity Map is accessible from every page on CRgov.com through a link at the top of the page. Further, public notice signs have been posted on the site since Nov. 28, 2018. As to your question about a donation, the developer donated over 200 acres of land for the construction of Philip S. Miller Park, and more than 40 percent of The Meadows’ land area is reserved for open space. For more information and to stay up-to-date with public notices, visit CRgov.com/development.
This land is owned by Castle Rock Development Co. The horses belong to a private owner leasing that land.
We are new residents, and were told by the realtor that Castle Rock prohibits building along crests of hills in an effort to not block out views. My question pertains to the CityScape development by Richmond (on Meadows Boulevard just west of the hospital). It is not on a crest, but the homes are 4 stories tall, and completely blot out the high mountain range, leaving only sky visible. They are actually on land that is lower than our homes across the road, but they are very tall. I'm just wondering if there are any protections in place that relate to existing homes and views?Castle Rock does not have any regulations regarding existing homes and their views. Our Skyline/Ridgeline ordinance limits building height in specific protected areas that are designated on the Development Constraints Map. (See link below.) Some homes built in these Skyline/Ridgeline areas have reduced building height, additional landscaping, limited to earth tone colors, or have gone through a variance process to not have these limitations (based on detailed criteria). The CityScape homes are not limited due to this ordinance and are being built within the allowed building height of 60 feet for this Town Center neighborhood.
This area will be additional paired homes from builder KB. (Northwest corner of Celestial Avenue and Low Meadow Boulevard). Further to the west at Jonquil Street and Celestial Avenue will be single family homes from Lennar. You can learn about what’s being built around Town with our Development Activity Map.
