Design Awards

Site Design Awards

Preserving Castle Rock’s community character is an important goal for the Town. It’s with that goal in mind that the Town created this program in 2009. The Design Awards honor outstanding building and site design that is consistent with the Town’s character.

Town identity

The Vision 2020 identifies four cornerstones for the community. The first cornerstone is Town identity, with the intent to “preserve Castle Rock’s character as a distinct and physically separate community that is the center of Douglas County.” It was with that cornerstone in mind that the Design Awards program was created.


Nominations are submitted to Town staff by a nomination team comprised of members of Board and Commission members and representatives of the building community.
