Are there any plans to construct a full-sized ice rink in Castle Rock?

The Town knows hockey and ice skating are popular in Colorado. Most ice rinks in Colorado have been built through either a public/private partnership or by a dedicated funding source, such as taxes. (Some of that is due to the cost to build and maintain them). While there has been some interest from the private sector in building a new ice rink in Castle Rock, no construction is currently planned. 

One recent idea has been presented through a Preliminary Project Application. The Preliminary Project Application is not a formal application. Instead, it is a way for developers to solicit comments from Town staff regarding the required processes for a proposed project. The proposed idea would have to go through zoning, site development, construction document evaluation and erosion control processes – some of which require public hearings and neighborhood meetings.

Currently, the Downtown Development Authority has its seasonal Rink at the Rock Downtown at Fifth and Perry streets. It’s generally open each year from Starlighting in November through Presidents’ Day.
