Have a voice in Town government; board and commission applications due April 22


Residents know Castle Rock is a great place to live. Our Town is consistently listed among the safest and best places to live in the state. As our community thrives, it can feel like change has become the new normal. But, maintaining Castle Rock’s character has always been a top priority. Help make sure our community is headed in the right direction by volunteering for a Town board or commission.

Every year in May, each board and commission has positions with terms that will expire. Incumbents must reapply if they are interested in continuing their service. The Town currently has several vacancies within its boards and commissions.

The 11 advisory boards and commissions provide public feedback to Town Council and staff regarding community issues. The Town Clerk is currently accepting applications for these vacancies.

The Town’s boards and commissions are:

• Board of Adjustment
• Board of Building Appeals
• Design Review Board
• Election Commission (3 year terms)
• Historic Preservation Board
• Parks and Recreation Commission
• Planning Commission
• Public Art Commission
• Public Safety Commission
• Public Works Commission
• Utilities Commission

Most terms are two years unless otherwise noted. Interested applicants must be a Castle Rock resident. They can apply for more than one board or commission; however, they can only be appointed to serve on one.

Applicants must submit a Board or Commission Application form by 5 p.m., Friday, April 22. Applications are at, and should be sent to the Town Clerk’s office, 100 N. Wilcox St., or by email at

More information on current vacancies; the overview, purpose, and responsibilities of the individual boards and commissions; and the volunteer application, are available at
