July 16 Council Preview

Stay connected to Town Council

Your Town Council meets Tuesday, July 16. View the full agenda online.

Town Council is scheduled to discuss several items, including the possible annexation of a 70-acre property known as Ridge Estates. If the annexation, zoning and development plan are approved, the property, located south of Crystal Valley, would include a residential neighborhood consisting of 52 dwelling units on half-acre lots designed to preserve the natural features in the area.

Council will also be asked to approve a proposed accessory dwelling unit near Downtown. Accessory dwelling units by definition are second small dwellings on the same grounds as a single-family home. 

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

  • 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. This agenda item was continued from the June 19 Town Council meeting. 

  • Update on potential development under consideration near Town Hall – Council will receive an update and provide direction on a potential development under consideration near Town Hall. If approved, Encore Castle Rock would bring a mix of office, retail and residential space to the block immediately south of Town Hall. The site would replace the old liquor store, two former car-care centers and the Town Hall parking lot. Once complete, the potential development would bring 300 public parking spaces, a new civic plaza gathering location and the railroad quite zone – meaning train engineers would no longer be required to regularly sound train horns through Downtown. Additional Council discussions on this topic are planned for the Aug. 20 and Sept. 3 meetings.
