Town Council unanimously approved the 2030 Comprehensive Master Plan in 2017. The Comprehensive Master Plan defines the Town's broad and long-term direction - guiding its growth, development and planning efforts.
Incorporated in 1881, Castle Rock is a vibrant and spirited community with a rich history and heritage. Our community theme is "a world-class community with small-town character." Over 140 years later, this theme remains central to our growing community.
