[ARCHIVED] Town, County seek input on proposed amendments to land use agreement

Town of Castle Rock and Douglas County are proposing to amend a 2004 intergovernmental land use agreement and are seeking public input regarding the potential changes. A public open house has been scheduled for March 31 at 6:30 p.m. at the Douglas County Events Center, 500 Fairgrounds Drive, Castle Rock.

The IGA established land-use goals and policies, which are tied to planning areas within the boundary of the Town and surrounding land areas within County jurisdiction. The amendments are based on direction from Town Council and County Commissioners regarding language and map revisions and requested property owners’ inclusions. These include:

  • Map revisions to reflect the new corporate limits of Castle Pines North.
  • Potential inclusions into the Urban Service Area: Five lots in Twin Oaks, adjacent to the Southwest Quadrant Planning Area, and two lots adjacent to Waverton Ranch, the Plum Creek Wastewater Plant and U.S. Highway 85.
  • Potential revision to Region A to change the designation of LaGae South from nonurban to urban.
  • Language revisions to protect unique natural features, including skyline / ridgeline protections, address the urban-nonurban interface areas and clarify notification and referral procedures.

    Following the public meeting, the proposed amendments will be presented to the Town and County planning commissions, likely in May 2010, and Town Council and the Board of County Commissioners in June 2010.

    Castle Rock residents and the business community are encouraged to attend. Additional information, including maps, can be found at CRgov.com/iga.
