Proposed changes to be formalized into draft ordinance

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. 

Following research and community feedback, Town Council heard a presentation on proposed changes to the Town’s animal code on March 6. Council discussed the proposed changes and heard from community members during public comment.

Ultimately, a majority of Council directed staff to come back to a Council meeting at a later date with a draft ordinance to formalize the proposed changes. Get details of the proposed changes and provide feedback at

Watch a video of the Council discussion. 

Ordinances require two readings, which include two formal public hearings. Those hearings have not yet been set.

During this review, the Town has considered community feedback, researched legal authority and studied neighboring communities' laws and more. We want to know what you think of the current recommendations
