We have Grocery stores that are incredibly crowded due to an incredibly minuscule amount of stores for the population. Is there large retail space at the new Dawson trails area?

The Dawson Trails property, on the south side of town, west of Interstate 25, is zoned to allow around 600,000 square feet of commercial retail spaces where a grocery store could go in. The property owner is working with retailers interested in grocery operations, which include discussions with a Costco Wholesale Club. There is additional property within the Town zoned for commercial grocery store uses. If King Soopers, or other grocery store chains, seek to expand or open new stores, the Town is ready to work with them.  Much of Castle Rock was zoned in the 1980s; however, it has taken decades to build out to current levels. Additional residential uses in the Founders/Terrain areas have been planned for some time, and the retail/grocery market will respond with expansion or new stores when needed. To learn more about the approved zoning for properties within Town, view the zoning map.
