Town values the voice of volunteers; board and commission applications due March 18

BoardAndCommish-NEWS

The Town of Castle Rock has two volunteer positions available for residents looking to increase their engagement in local government. Currently, there are vacancies on both the Board of Adjustment and Planning Commission. As a key part of Town government, boards and commissions acquire and study information; provide recommendations to Town staff and Council; and obtain public comment to reflect the community’s voice.

Castle Rock residents can apply by March 18 through CRgov.com/boards. The term of both roles will expire May 31, 2019. Applicants can apply for more than one board or commission; however, they can only be appointed to serve on one. 

Learn more about the boards:

  • The Board of Adjustment is responsible for hearing and deciding requests for variances from zoning and sign codes. The board is also responsible for hearing appeals to any decision or determination made by an administrative official. Decisions of the Board of Adjustment are final, subject to judicial review. Meetings are held at 6 p.m. the first Thursday of each month.
  • The Planning Commission reviews development requests, zoning change requests, and other related land proposals for future growth and development in the Town of Castle Rock, as outlined in the Municipal Code. The Planning Commission holds public hearings, requests modifications to proposals, and works to reach consensus on an advisory recommendation to Town Council. Meetings are held at 6 p.m. the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.
