As the Castle Rock Town Council debates various options about how to pay for continued growth, projects continue to pile up.
With a growing population of more than 75,000, making Castle Rock the 15th-largest municipality in Colorado, both commercial and residential projects are moving forward.
Director of Development Services Tara Vargish updated the council on several ongoing projects, including the Canyon South annexation, Miller's Landing rezoning and the multi-family Promenade project.
Vargish said some projects are moving to the final stages while others are just beginning.
Fire Chief Norris Croom said growth has him concerned. Fire department staffing levels are meeting current standards, but Croom said the Canyon South annexation proposal is a good example of more land coming into town limits, pushing the department to its limits.
Projects currently planned in Castle Rock include:
Canyon South annexation and zoning: The 409-acre property proposed for annexation is located north and east of Founders Parkway, north of Crimson Sky Drive and Spanish Oaks Trail, and west of Castle Oaks Drive. The proposed development plan consists of 474 single-family detached homes, a neighborhood retail center, community parks and miles of trails. Over half of the property will be zoned as open space.
The annexation continues to go through the eligibility process and has not been officially approved by the town council.
Promenade Apartments: The Planning Commission is expected to review the site development plan for the Promenade Apartments on July 22. The council is expected to vote on the project on Aug. 17. The project is located inside Promenade at Castle Rock shopping center, south of La Loma and west of Sam's Club along Promenade Parkway.Forum Investment Group is proposing a multi-family residential project, consisting of four buildings, each of which would be four to five stories tall with a total of 300 apartments across all buildings.
Miller's Landing rezoning: Miller's Landing is a 48-acre parcel located northwest of the Interstate 25 and Plum Creek Parkway interchange. This property is currently zoned as an Interchange Overlay Planned Development, which prohibits residential use. The rezoning proposal is asking the town to allow residential use. If approved, the amendment would allow 900 dwelling units, and 460,000 square feet of retail space. The project is still going through the town's eligibility process and has not been discussed by council.
Other continuing projects in the community include:
Black Trail at The Meadows: Located on Melting Snow Way east of Red Hawk Drive, the project consists of 209 single-family homes being constructed by Richmond American Homes.
Castle Rock Auto Storage: Located at 650 S. Interstate 25, construction continues on the 23,800-square-foot indoor automobile storage facility.
Liberty Carwash: Located at 1039 Aloha St., construction continues at the 4,800-square-foot single tunnel carwash.
Olinger Andrews Caldwell Gibson Chapel: Located at 407 Jerry St, the 8,500-square-foot building is a replacement for an existing building that will improve accessibility and overall needs in the community.
Red Hawk — The Grand Collection: Located at Melting Snow Way and Knobbie Circle, the project includes 29 single-gamily homes. With land being cleared by home builder Lennar Homes, actual housing construction is slated to begin in September.
Sunstone Village at Terrain: Located south of Highway 86 and north of Ridge Road, Meritage Homes is in the process of building 381 single-family detached and attached homes.
