Assessing needs and optionsParking the car – it's something most drivers do multiple times each day. Usually, without much thought.
But as Downtown Castle Rock increasingly becomes a destination for residents and visitors, thought must be put into how best to meet the community's parking and access needs.
New regulations implemented
Prior to 2018, Town Code did not require parking for Downtown developments.
Town Council voted to change Town Code in fall 2018 to require one parking space for each residential unit built Downtown. Commercial developments now also require parking.
In addition to these code changes, parking enforcement is now being conducted by Castle Rock Police Department's Community Service Officer. Additionally, changes were implemented in 2017 to add nearly 20 parking spots to Downtown. View the slides (PDF) from a presentation to Town Council regarding these changes.
