A land use bill with unfunded mandates and higher density requirements that are not right for Castle Rock continues to make its way through the State's General Assembly. Senate Bill 213 (https://leg.colorado.gov/bills/sb23-213) has passed the Senate and is scheduled to be heard tomorrow, Tuesday, May 2, in a House committee.
The Castle Rock Town Council remains opposed to the bill and encourages residents to share their opposition with State representatives — particularly those on the House Transportation, Housing & Local Government Committee (https://leg.colorado.gov/committees/transportation-housing-local-government/2023-regular-session). A suggested message to share, and a list of the committee members' email addresses:
I urge you to vote no on Senate Bill 213. Please do not place unfunded, onerous mandates on local land-use matters. Local residents and representatives should be able to decide what is right for our community. Please reject this legislation and have the State work with local communities to improve housing affordability. Thank you.
