Several discussions, including the proposed redevelopment project The View at Castle Rock and additional grants for Castle Rock small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, were topics on Town Council’s Sept. 1 meeting agenda.
Here’s a more detailed look at those items:
Also on the agenda, Town Council decided to reschedule the canceled July 4 fireworks show to 7 p.m. New Year’s Eve. The fireworks will be shot from the same location, from atop Santa Fe Quarry Mesa. The July 4 show was canceled due to high fire dangers.
Additionally, Council approved the first reading of the Proposed 2021 Budget. The $229.8 million budget includes $56.7 million in transportation investments, and water rights and infrastructure projects totaling more than $54 million. Numerous additional items – in parks and recreation, police and other departments – are included. Castle Rock Water rates are recommended to stay the same for 2021. System development fees paid for new development for water are recommended to increase by 4.9%. The second and final reading is planned for Sept. 15. View details at CRgov.com/2021Budget.
Council also decided to accept entitlement status in the Community Development Block Grant Program. The program provides roughly $220,000 annually in federal funding to focus on benefits for low- and moderate-income people.
