Castle Rock Industrial Park’s Annexation Petition was accepted and filed with the Town Clerk on August 30, 2016.  The Annexation Petition was then reviewed by Town Council in two hearings as prescribed by State statute; a Substantial Compliance hearing on October 4, 2016, and an Eligibility hearing on November 15, 2016.  Town Council found the Annexation Petition to be in substantial compliance with Section 30 of Article II of the Colorado Constitution and also found it to meet the required statutory findings concerning its eligibility for annexation.  The Annexation & Zoning application was then presented to the Planning Commission on March 23, who voted 4-0 to recommend approval.  On June 20, 2017 (1st reading) Town Council voted to approve the annexation application as presented 6-0.  The 2nd reading was scheduled for July 18, 2017 however the applicant elected to table the 2nd reading until further notice.

What's the process?

Annexation proposals like this one must follow a state-mandated process, defined in the Colorado Revised Statutes.

That process begins with Town Council determining if the annexation application meets statutory requirements and is eligible to start the annexation process.  Then, public hearings can begin in order to determine if the property should be annexed to the Town.

To aid in Council’s decision-making, staff reviews the project and studies the potential impacts on Town roads, water and overall levels of service.  Input is also gathered from other agencies such as Douglas County, local service providers, nearby Homeowners Associations and the Colorado Department of Transportation.  The Town’s goal is to ensure every application matches the community's vision and makes technical sense.  

Once the review process is complete, the applicant must go through a series of public hearings including Planning Commission and Town Council.
