Ridge Estates Proposal
The applicant, Putnam CVR, LLC, has submitted to the Town of Castle Rock a petition for annexation of unincorporated property in Douglas County, known as Ridge Estates (formerly known as Sellers Creek Estates). The property is located generally south of Loop Road and west of Lake Gulch Road and east of Medallion Road. It is approximately 70 acres. (See map below.)
This property is currently zoned in Douglas County as Agriculture One (A1). The existing zoning on the property allows for places of worship up to 350 seats in the main sanctuary, public and private schools and single-family residential development on lots ranging from 2 to 35 acres.
Status and Events
The proposed zoning is being reviewed by Town Staff.
Public Hearings before Planning Commission and Town Council have not yet been scheduled.
The applicant is proposing to annex into the Town of Castle Rock and change the zoning to allow 100 single-family dwelling units and a gross density of 1.43 dwelling units per acre. The road system is proposed to connect to Crystal Valley Ranch. A gate-restricted emergency vehicle access is proposed at Sellers Creek Road, a private residential road. Water and sewer service would be delivered via connection to the Town infrastructure.

What’s the process?
Annexation proposals like this one must follow a state-mandated process, defined in the Colorado Revised Statutes.
That process begins with Town Council determining if the annexation application meets statutory requirements and is eligible to start the annexation process. Then, public hearings can begin in order to determine if the property should be annexed to the Town.
To aid in Council’s decision-making, staff reviews the project and studies the potential impacts on Town roads, water and overall levels of service. Input is also gathered from other agencies such as Douglas County, local service providers, nearby Homeowners Associations and the Colorado Department of Transportation. The Town’s goal is to ensure every application matches the community's vision and makes technical sense.
Once the review process is complete, the applicant must go through a series of public hearings including before Planning Commission and Town Council.
