Here is a more in-depth look at Tuesday’s meeting agenda:
- Ordinance establishing buffer requirements between dissimilar residential developments – Town Council will consider the second reading of an ordinance that would establish buffering requirements between dissimilar residential developments in Town. Residential developments are defined as single-family detached, single-family attached and multifamily homes.
If approved, the ordinance would establish a minimum 50-foot buffer between dissimilar residential developments to help mitigate impacts between varying types of developments. The requirements would apply to developments that share a property line (in whole or in part) or those separated by less than 50 feet of open space. The ordinance also allows Council to waive the requirements if certain conditions are met.
- Sister city program process discussion – Town Council will be asked to provide direction regarding a recommended process for implementing a possible sister city program in Castle Rock. In November, Council directed staff to produce a report to pursue a sister city relationship. Staff then reached out to Colorado communities with sister city programs to identify best practices. On Tuesday, Town Council will review staff’s recommended process and provide further direction.
Also on the agenda, Town Council will review the 2020 Major Projects List. The list is intended to forecast major projects for the coming year. It will also serve as an outline for future updates to Town Council and the community.
Additionally, Castle Rock Public Works will soon have a new leader. Town Council will be asked to ratify the appointment of Daniel Sailer as the new Director. Sailer has held several positions with the Town’s Public Works Department including Transportation Engineering Manager, Engineering Manager and Assistant Director.
