Castle Rock seeking input through community survey

Results measure public opinion and help inform town budget

The Town of Castle Rock is conducting its official community survey, which it has conducted every two years since 2011, to gauge what community members want to see from their town.

Thousands of Castle Rock households were randomly selected to complete a 30-minute survey about how the town is performing, according to a town news release. The survey period began the week of Feb. 27 and should be completed by April 2.

Every licensed business was also invited to participate through a 10-minute survey. The selected households will be contacted by email, mail or by phone.

Come April, the general community will be invited to participate through a supplemental survey. Go to www.CRgov.com when a link to that survey becomes available.

Results of the survey are expected to be reported to the town council in May and will help inform the town budget. Results will also be posted at www.CRgov.com/2017survey.

Community survey results from 2015 found residents prioritized supporting the town’s aging population. Residents were split on the need for public transportation. Their top concern, however, was growth — including urban sprawl, increased traffic and a loss of the small-town feeling, according to the final report. More than 700 of the randomly selected residents responded to the survey, according to the town website.

Overal, residents praised the quality of life in Castle Rock, rating it at just under 4.5 stars on a 5-star scale.

Results of past surveys are available at www.CRgov.com.
