Your Town Council meets Tuesday, Feb. 19. View the full agenda online. An informational study session to provide an overview on water and public safety will begin at 5 p.m. Study sessions are open to the public, but no public comment will be taken. The Council meeting will begin at 7 p.m.

Town Council is scheduled to discuss several items, including the 2018 Sales Tax Report. Staff carefully monitors sales tax projections for budgeting purposes. While trends remained steady in 2018, revenue showed a decline of .7% from budgeted amounts. 

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

  • Resolution for a Site Development Plan in south Meadows – Town Council will consider a proposal to construct a neighborhood of 58 paired homes, 116 single-family units, on a 27-acre site just west of the Park Preserve development on Wolfensberger Road near Coachline Road/Plum Creek Parkway. Proposed amenities include two neighborhood parks and direct trail access to the Philip S. Miller/Ridgeline Open Space trail system.

    This item was continued during the Jan. 8 Council meeting. At the time, Council felt more time was necessary to review the proposal and determine how it lines up with current development criteria. The proposal will be revisited Tuesday.

  • Ordinance to update Municipal Code regarding fireworks – during the summer, fire dangers can be a problem in Colorado. The current Municipal Code regulates fire restrictions and the sale and use of fireworks in Castle Rock. Currently, under Stage 1 fire restrictions, the use of fireworks is prohibited, but the sale of fireworks is allowed. Under Stage 2 fire restrictions, both the use and sale of fireworks are prohibited. This language has caused confusion in the past, as residents could purchase, but not use fireworks, under Stage 1 fire restrictions.

    This update would modify the Municipal Code to restrict the use and sale of fireworks during any level of fire restrictions – both Stage 1 and Stage 2. The goal is to reduce the potential for wildland fires and eliminate confusion surrounding the use and sale of fireworks during fire restrictions.

  • Resolution approved 2019 conservation measures – Castle Rock residents know, conservation is key for the community. Tuesday, Town Council will be reviewing the 2019 Conservation Rebate and Incentive Program in anticipation of the upcoming irrigation season.

    Two changes are being proposed for 2019 – the maximum rebate amount for the nonresidential SmartScape renovation program would be increased, and the per-square-foot reimbursement for both residential and nonresidential turf replacement would be increased.

    Additionally, Town Council will be reviewing the 2019 Water Use Management Plan. The plan helps manage peak season demand by staggering customers on an every-third-day format. If approved, the watering schedule for 2019 will be in effect May through September. As in years past, watering during the daytime hours of 8 a.m.-8 p.m. would continue to be prohibited. This format helps customers use water outdoors during the most efficient and effective times of day.
