What's ahead for Jan. 16?

You can view the full agenda online for the Tuesday, Jan. 16 meeting. During this meeting, Council will receive an update on local property tax rates for 2018. Here’s a brief snapshot of other items Council is scheduled to discuss. 

Citizen Advisory Committee recommendations
Town Council’s newly appointed Citizen Advisory Committee is helping implement the voter-approved, at-large Mayor structure. The seven-member Committee formally met Jan. 9 and will present its recommendations to Town Council Tuesday. The Committee’s recommendations will focus on the qualifications to become Mayor and a timeline for redistricting from seven to six districts.

Town Council authorized the Citizen Advisory Committee to help advise Council on necessary changes to the Town Charter not included in the November 2017 citizen-initiated petition. The Committee was also created to give recommendations for the transition plan to the new Town Council structure.

Accessory dwelling unit ordinance approval
Accessory dwelling units by definition are second small dwellings on the same grounds as a single-family home. This could include an apartment over the garage or in the basement, a tiny house in the backyard, or a mother-in-law dwelling.

Town Council will be considering an ordinance to update Town Code to allow for accessory dwelling units in some neighborhoods. This is the second reading of the ordinance. If approved, the ordinance would amend Town Code to allow for accessory dwelling units as a use-by-right in residential areas. That means homeowners would be permeated to use accessory dwelling units as long as they abide by zoning regulations.

Construction contract for Castle Rock Water Improvement Project

As infrastructure ages, replacement and rehabilitation are important issues for Castle Rock Water. The goal is to spread out the costs of infrastructure rehabilitation and replacement over time. Staff has identified four facilities that require improvements. Those improvements have been combined into a single project – the Castle Rock Water Improvements Project.

The project includes the replacement of the Baldwin pressure reducing valve (located near Baldwin Park Road and S. Valley Drive), the Canyon pressure reducing valve (located near Canyon and Oakwood drives), Meadows Water Treatment Plant transmission mains butterfly valve and the Maher Force Main manhole.

The total construction cost is estimated at $327,624 and will be paid for out of Castle Rock Water’s Distribution System Upgrades, Valves and Actuators, and Sewer Line Rehab funds.
