Your Town Council meets Tuesday, Oct. 16. View the full agenda online.


Council is scheduled to discuss several items including Castle Rock Water being awarded the Gold Level of the Colorado Environmental Leadership Program. The department was recognized for its efforts in voluntarily going beyond compliance for environmental laws and regulations. Additionally, Tuesday night will be the formal oath of office and badge pinning for new Castle Rock Fire Chief Norris Croom. 
 
Here’s a look at a few other things on the agenda:
  • Parks and Recreation Gold Medal Award – Town Council will receive an update regarding the Parks and Recreation Department’s acceptance of the National Recreation and Parks Association’s 2018 Gold Medal Award.

    The Gold Medal Award honors communities throughout the United States that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management and innovative approaches to delivering superb parks and recreation services. This is the highest award given within the parks and recreation industry. View the department’s application, watch the 5-minute submittal video and read other award materials at CRgov.com/ParksandRec.

  • Your Town Academy Graduation – the participants of the 2018 Your Town Academy will officially graduate Tuesday. Town Council will be presenting certificates of completion to the 30 class members.

    The eight-week class aims to maintain governmental transparency by increasing community awareness of Town operations. The Town’s major departments – Police, Fire and Rescue, Public Works/Roads, Parks and Recreation, Development Services and Water – all host an evening of information and interactive demonstrations regarding their service areas. More information is available at CRgov.com/YTA.

  • East Plum Creek Trail Extension – East Plum Creek Trail is the main trail that travels through Town. It is not only the Town’s most widely used paved trail, but it is also part of a larger statewide trail system. Now, a project to expand the existing trail an additional 2.05 miles is underway. Town Council will consider a construction contract with Hudick Excavating, Inc. Tuesday.

    The expansion will be a 10-foot-wide, multi-use paved trail from South Perry Street to Crystal Valley Parkway. The Town was awarded a $1 million Great Outdoors Colorado Grant to help offset some of the costs of construction. However, the terms of the grant require the Town to match funds of an additional $1 million and complete the project within three years of the award date.
