Since 2011, the Town has commissioned a resident and business survey in each odd-numbered year.
For 2021's survey, the Town partnered with third-party research firm ComEngage (formerly Northwest Research Group).
The firm's work included a scientific study, in which randomly selected households were invited to participate, as well as a supplemental survey through which the entire community could provide feedback. Town-licensed businesses located in Town were also surveyed.
As a follow-up to the 2017 survey, the Town conducted an online focus group to provoke in-depth responses regarding the topics of value of services; growth; community character; parks priorities; recreation development at Rueter-Hess; and education on the Town's water plan. Those conversations occurred in June and July 2017. Read the report provided to Town Council regarding that process.
In 2015, the survey indicated Castle Rock is a place where the grass is greener. More than 700 residents responded to the survey. View the 2015 survey (PDF).
As a follow-up to the 2015 survey, the Town launched an online focus group to provoke in-depth responses regarding the topics of growth; transportation; parks, recreation and special events; and communications. Those conversations occurred from October 2015 to February 2016. View the 2015 Focus Group report (PDF)provided to Town Council regarding that process.
