No. We currently have more than 27,000 homes in Castel Rock, and more than 54,000 entitled residential lots that can be built in Castle Rock. Residential and associated commercial and industrial growth is likely to occur with or without annexation.

Annexations require a coordination with a wide range of participants that include: the property owner, Town staff, County representatives, affected HOA representatives, interested citizens, many state review agencies to include the Colorado Department of Transportation. All annexations require public hearings for all to participate in front of the Planning Commission and the Town Council prior to any official approval/denial.
Public hearings are the best place to voice your opinion. However, use of the Town’s website and writing letters to staff, the Planning Commission and Town Council are also good ways to voice your opinion.
Annexations increase traffic in and around Town borders. Prior to any annexation, a transportation study identifies the necessary road improvements to handle the increase in traffic. The annexation and zoning processes also include a Development Agreement, and that agreement decides how the development team of annexed property will pay for the necessary road improvements.
Castle Rock Water has a long-term water plan in place that accounts for existing and future Council-approved developments. Properties that annex into the Town must also 1) convey all existing ground water rights under the property or at Council discretion pay cash in-lieu if they do not have enough ground water rights to support proposed development and 2) provide adequate renewable water resources for proposed development of the property to the Town to ensure the appropriate amount of water is available.
