In August, your city elected officials unanimously approved CH2M HILL OMI as the city’s partner to provide a range of municipal services, including administrative management.
With city management on board we now have a city website (www.cpngov.com) in place that will expand to meet the needs and desires of CPN residents. Our goal is to have this site contain past and current city information and records while being as easy and convenient to navigate as possible.
In late August, the Council unanimously approved rezoning of the Lagae parcel. With this action, work will now proceed on bringing a new park, new school, and new church to Castle Pines North. This parcel will generate more than $22 million in tap fee revenue that will directly benefit our CPN Metro District in their quest for renewable water. Council members worked hard and diligently to ensure every facet of this issue was thoroughly vetted before casting their votes. As mayor, it is a privilege to work with Council members so completely dedicated to doing what is in the best interest of our city.
The next hurdle we as a city face involves the November 4 election. The ballot will contain two questions that are of great importance to Castle Pines North.
The first ballot issue asks CPN voters to broaden the authorization granted under Ballot Question 2E which CPN voters passed in November 2007 by more than 68 percent.
The second ballot issue is what is known as a general “de-brucing” question. This would exempt city revenues such as building permit fees, interest on investment income, and grants, from the limitations contained in the State Constitution and statutes.
It is very important for our city that these 2 ballot initiatives pass.
PLEASE NOTE that neither of these ballot questions is a tax increase, nor is the city bankrupt! If you hear these false rumors, you are receiving incorrect information and I invite you to contact me directly at Contact by emal
City officials plan to have community meetings in the weeks ahead on the ballot questions as well as state of our city.
Our new city is proceeding forward and becoming stronger through the outpouring of fantastic citizen volunteers, the hard work of dedicated council members, and the citizens of CPN staying informed with the facts. On every issue that our city faces, it is your voice, your vote, and your input that will make the difference.
Be sure to cast a YES vote on the two ballot questions 2D and 2E. Both are of critical importance to CPN, as well as the initiative to bring a library to our city!
Say YES to a strong City! Say YES to the library!
For our city,
Maureen Shul, Mayor
