You can watch the full meeting online, but here is a brief update on Council action.
Animal Code discussion; Council gives direction on next steps
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. Proposed changes include a staff recommendation to replace the current breed-specific ban with a two-tiered, behavior-based system.
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 CRgov.com/animals.
