[ARCHIVED] Dec. 21 Council update

Town Council Update: Dec. 21

An update on a feasibility study for a possible new indoor recreation facility and the design contract for the Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard Roundabout Project were both topics on Town Council’s Dec. 21 meeting agenda.

Here is a closer look:

  • Recreation Facility Feasibility Study update – Town Council received an update on the planning efforts for the Town’s next indoor recreation facility. Over the past year, the Parks and Recreation Department and its architectural design consultant have studied the feasibility and potential timing for Castle Rock’s next indoor recreation facility.

    While the study indicated an additional facility is feasible with the funding mechanisms in place for Parks and Recreation, existing and suitable Town-owned property is limited. Town Council recommended staff distribute a request for proposals to gauge interest in potential public-private partnerships. That information will be presented to Council at a meeting early next year.

    Possible future amenities could include a 25-meter pool, multi-court gymnasium, fitness area and meeting rooms. Actual programs and amenities will be determined during the design development process, which will include community and Town Council input.

  • Resolution finalizing an agreement for the Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard roundabout design – Town Council approved a service agreement with Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. for design work on the Crystal Valley Parkway and Plum Creek Boulevard Roundabout Project.

    Traffic at the intersection has increased due to new home construction in the area. Town staff determined a roundabout would best serve the community by increasing safety, improving reliability and reducing environmental impacts. An all-way stop and traffic signal were also evaluated as potential options; however, both options presented increased safety risks. The $349,000 agreement includes design, traffic analysis and right of way services. 

    The design is expected to be complete by summer 2022. Construction is estimated to begin shortly after and is scheduled for completion by spring 2023.
