Stay connected to Town Council

Your Town Council representatives meet twice a month, and during those meetings, Councilmembers make decisions that impact you, our residents and business owners. This email will help you stay connected with those decisions. 

Generally, Council meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Meetings begin at 6 p.m. in the Town Hall Council Chambers, 100 N. Wilcox St. These meetings are open to the public. 

What's ahead for March 6?

You can view the full agenda online for the Tuesday, March 6, meeting. Here’s a brief snapshot of other items Council is scheduled to discuss. 

Animal Code discussion
Following research and community feedback, Town Council is poised to hear and discuss an introduction to a series of proposed changes to the Town’s animal code. Proposed changes include a staff recommendation to replace the current breed-specific ban with a two-tiered, behavior-based system.

As a home rule municipality, the Town of Castle Rock has its own set of laws and codes. It's prudent for a local government to evaluate its laws from time to time to ensure they are up to par with current legal best practices and local culture. That's why Town staff started a review of the Town Code related to animals in 2017. 

Town staff will present recommendations, along with community feedback, to Town Council during Council’s regular meeting March 6. There will be time for public comment.

It’s important to note this is on the agenda for discussion and determination whether the proposed ordinance changes should be presented for formal consideration on a Town Council agenda at a later date. Council is not expected to vote on these proposed changes on March 6. Any changes to Town Code require two readings, which include two formal public hearings. Those hearings have not been set.

Construction contracts for annual Pavement Maintenance Program
Proper maintenance extends the lives of our local streets and makes the most of our investment in roadways. Town Council Tuesday will consider a series of work contracts to complete necessary maintenance as part of the Pavement Maintenance Program.

The Pavement Maintenance Program concentrates residential roadwork to one of five defined areas each year on a rotating basis. Additionally, primary and Downtown streets receive repairs as needed. The goal is to reduce costs by increasing efficiency, while reducing disruption to neighborhoods.

For 2018, the Town is planning work in Founders Village. View a map of proposed work at CRgov.com/PMP.

Council will consider separate work contracts for: asphalt overlay and full depth reclamation (PLM Asphalt and Concrete Inc.); Lantern Trail Reconstruction (Schmidt Construction Company); Wagonwheel Trail Reconstruction (PLM Asphalt and Concrete Inc.); curb, gutter and sidewalk replacement (Silva Construction Inc); Wilcox Street concrete pavement restoration project (PLM Asphalt and Concrete Inc.); Meadows Boulevard concrete restoration (Sabell’s Enterprises LLLP); slurry seal (Vance Brothers Inc.); and crack seal and mastic project (Avery Asphalt Inc.)

Work is expected to start in April and last though late summer.

Resident notification
While the Town works to improve neighborhood streets, we know it means a temporary inconvenience. Residents along these streets should watch their mailbox and visit CRgov.com/PMP to sign up for email updates.

If we will be working on your street, we will send you a letter about two weeks ahead of time, and our contractor will place a note on your door 48 to 72 hours before scheduled work. We appreciate your patience!

Castle Rock Water

Keep up with Castle Rock Water
Castle Rock Water customers have embraced the call to conserve. Whether it’s abiding by a designated watering schedule, participating in a Water Wiser Workshop or planning water-efficient landscape for the yard, this community knows that conservation is key. Town Council Tuesday will be considering a series of agenda items related to water. Those include:

Parker Water and Sanitation District Wheeling Agreement – this is the final agreement needed to officially bring WISE water to Castle Rock. The community should expect the first drops of the imported water by early summer.

2018 Water Use Management  Plan – Town Council will be reviewing the 2018 Water Use Management Plan Tuesday night. New to the plan this year is a watering schedule for HOA and commercial customers. Also, an expiration date for Water Wiser certification will be instated in 2018. Participants will now need to retake the workshop once every five years to maintain their Water Wiser status.

Several other plans including the Source Water Protection Plan and the 2018 Landscape and Irrigation Performance Standards and Criteria Manual will also be under review with Town Council.
