Jan. 21 Council update: roles and responsibilities of the Design Review Board discussed; Castle Rock Fire and Rescue’s strategic plan approve
A study session to discuss the roles and responsibilities of the Design Review Board and final approval of Castle Rock Fire and Rescue’s 2020-2024 Community Driven Strategic Plan were both topics on Town Council’s Jan. 21 meeting agenda.
Here’s a more in-depth look at those agenda items:
- Study session to discuss the Design Review Board – Town Council held a study session to discuss details behind the Design Review Board. The board was formed in 2010 following Council’s adoption of the Downtown Overlay District. Both were created in response to the community’s desire to revitalize and improve the Downtown area. The board is currently made up of members from the Planning Commission, Downtown Development Authority, the Historic Preservation Board and two Downtown property owners. The board’s primary responsibility is to review Site Development Plan applications submitted within Downtown boundaries.
Past projects in which the Design Review Board has been involved include The Move office building, Riverwalk, the Acme Water Tower and Encore.
The discussion will continue during a future Council meeting.
