The Board of Douglas County Commissioners announced early today that the variance requests to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for Park Meadows Mall and for  restaurants, places of worship and gyms within Douglas County – including Castle Rock – have been approved, effective immediately. The Board received the letter of approval on May 22, 2020.

Board Chair Roger Partridge said, “On behalf of our Board, I wish to express our thanks to all involved in the preparation and review of these documents, including our business community, Tri-County Health Department, our hospitals and the CDPHE. We are especially grateful to the citizens of Douglas County for adhering to the behaviors that led to the favorable public health data that supported this outcome.”

Castle Rock Mayor Jason Gray was one of those involved. He added: "We are encouraged that more business are now able to safely reopen and continue their way to economic recovery."

The Town will provide information  early the week of May 26 on what this variance will mean for the Castle Rock Recreation Center’s ability to reopen.
