Now, parking is a concern?

It amazes many of us that some in the Castle Rock Town Council are now concerned about parking in downtown. Wait! Councilmembers such as Green, Valentine and Ford approved these developers. Developments are approved utilizing data from developers, and individuals from the Castle Rock EDC, but the planning commission and councilmembers are the checks and balances.

It is stunning that these developments will not have adequate parking when complete, and in fact will add to an already bad situation.

Why do members of the town council, and the county commission, approve all development, without consideration of the traffic on I-25, and the congestion within the Douglas County cities?

Finally, did certain members of the Castle Rock Town Council put developer’s interest over the Castle Rock quality of life?

I have no misconceptions that people should be able to move where they want, and that property owners should be able to develop their land. However, it is imperative that development include proper infrastructure.

Think about it! Where can citizens park for the star lighting, the Oktoberfest, the county fair parade or any of the other community functions that make Castle Rock a great place to raise a family?
