Your Town Council meets Tuesday, June 18. View the full agenda online.

Town Council is scheduled to discuss several items including the annual audit of the Town’s financial statements. Castle Rock Fire and Rescue will also be asking Council to approve the 2019 update to its 2016-2019 Strategic Plan. Additionally, Council will be receiving an update related to the development of the Town’s next neighborhood park. The Cobblestone Ranch neighborhood was selected as the next priority for park development during a selection process completed in 2017. Council will receive an update on the request for proposals and master planning process. 

Here is a preview of a few other items on Tuesday’s agenda:

  • Construction contract for intersection improvements at Founders Parkway and Allen Way – Town Council will be reviewing a construction contract with Noraa Concrete Construction Corporation for the Founders Parkway and Allen Way Intersection Improvements Project. The project includes improving Founders Parkway from I-25 to Allen Way. Additionally, several new turn lanes, a second lane through Allen Way and Allen Street, and an additional I-25 northbound on-ramp are included in the project scope.

    If the construction contract is approved, work is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks. Weather dependent, the project should be complete this fall.

  • Ordinance amending the Town’s animal code concerning ducks, miniature goats and miniature pot-bellied pigs – Council will consider an ordinance allowing ducks, miniature goats and miniature pot-bellied pigs in Town. Town staff reviewed regulations from a number of Colorado municipalities and found that several communities allow these animals in residential neighborhoods. If approved, the ordinance would allow ducks. Miniature goats and miniature pot-bellied pigs would be allowed with some restrictions. The animals would need a microchip or collar, appropriate vaccinations and would need to be spayed or neutered. Additionally, owners would need to adhere to strict size, breed and licensing requirements.

  • Resolution approving the Downtown Mobility Master Plan – Due to the unique character and historical nature of Downtown, for the past year staff has looked at creative ways to increase mobility in the area. Town Council will now be asked to review and approve the Downtown Mobility Master Plan. The goal of the plan is to identify transportation improvement projects that will maintain mobility, reduce congestion and improve access throughout Downtown. Additionally, the plan anticipates future growth and prioritizes projects based on need. 

    If approved, there are a number of recommendations to improve traffic flow, pedestrian safety, sidewalks and other items in the Downtown area, which can be considered in the future with additional public input and allocation of necessary Town resources.
