The ground-breaking for Castle View Park has been delayed until early 2005. According to the CPN Metro District, land issues have temporarily postponed construction of the new 22-acre park. “We hope to have phase one of Castle View Park out for bid early in 2005,” said Charlie Fagan, Metro District Parks and Open Space Manager.
The Metro District already has 17 acres of land for the new park. This includes a 10.5 acre portion previously owned by Douglas County.
The District is working out the final alignment of the access easement and roadway alignment into the park. Lagae Road will be extended northwest through the commercial properties into Castle View Park. “The roadway alignment is the major issue we are trying to resolve,” said Metro District Manager Judy Dahl. “Without access, we cannot build the park.”
“We apologize for the delay of the park construction,” said Fagan. “We are still negotiating with the landowners for a five acre piece of land adjacent to Castle Pines Parkway west of the Xcel power lines. To date, we have more than 75 percent of the land needed for the park. We hope to be able to finalize the negotiations very soon.”
Phase One of the multi-year park project is expected by be completed in the summer of 2005. For more information about Castle View Park, please contact Charlie Fagan at 303-688-8550, ext. 20, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
