Jan. 7 Council update

Jan. 7 Council update

The second reading of an ordinance to establish buffering requirements between dissimilar residential developments and a discussion to identify a process for pursuing a possible sister city relationship were both topics on Town Council’s Jan. 7 meeting agenda.

Here’s a more in-depth look at those agenda items:

  • Ordinance establishing buffer requirements between dissimilar residential developments finalized – Town Council approved (6-1) the second reading of an ordinance that establishes buffering requirements between dissimilar residential developments in Town. Dissimilar residential developments are properties where single-family detached homes are adjacent to either single-family attached or multifamily homes, or where single-family attached homes are adjacent to multifamily homes.

    The ordinance establishes a minimum 50-foot buffer between dissimilar residential developments to help mitigate impacts between varying types of developments. The requirements apply to developments that share a property line (in whole or in part) or those separated by less than 50 feet of open space. The ordinance also allows Council to waive the requirements if certain conditions are met.

  • Sister city program process discussion – Town Council provided input on the process for implementing a possible sister city program in Castle Rock. In February, input and interest will be solicited at CRgov.com/SisterCities. This effort is will be largely volunteer-led and meetings are anticipated to start in March.

Also on the agenda, Town Council reviewed the 2020 Major Projects List. The list is intended to forecast major projects for the coming year. It also serves as an outline for future updates to Town Council and the community.

Additionally, Castle Rock Public Works has a new leader. Town Council officially appointed Daniel Sailer as the new Director. Sailer has held several positions with the Town’s Public Works Department including Transportation Engineering Manager, Engineering Manager and Assistant Director.

Coming up

The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 21.
