Neighborhood's new name: Village at Castle Pines

Gated community makes change to distinguish itself from adjacent areas

Posted

Lilly Harmon moved with her husband, Ross, and their two children from the Cherry Creek area to the gated Castle Pines Village five years ago in search of a private area, close to nature and with good schools.

“It's a sanctuary,” she said, coincidentally while at The Sanctuary golf course in Castle Pines for an event thrown by the homeowners association.

Residents of Castle Pines Village gathered that day by the hundreds at the exclusive golf course, which boasts expansive views of the Front Range, for an announcement from the Castle Pines Homes Association, which manages the community.

Castle Pines Village is no more, board members said. As of Sept. 11, the community has changed its name to The Village at Castle Pines.

The Castle Pines Homes Association was created in 1981. Members of the board and residents said the growth of the greater Castle Pines area (there's also the City of Castle Pines and the Castle Pines North Metro District) means the name Castle Pines no longer distinguishes The Village from neighboring areas.

From now on, they're placing the emphasis in their name on “The Village,” which is how most locals already refer to it, they said.

The Village at Castle Pines comprises 1,700 homes on 2,800 acres and is home to 1,400 children, board members said. Board president Len Jacob said he expects that The Village at Castle Pines has room for approximately 200 more homes before it reaches full buildout.
