Two Road Projects Starting

The City of Castle Pines will begin undertaking two major road improvement projects this year. Happy Canyon and Lagae will see the construction of a new roundabout which began the week of February 19 and will continue through June. Traffic at the intersection will be temporarily closed at certain points during construction to enable a more timely completion. The goal is to finish the roundabout before the BMW Championship is held at Castle Pines Golf Club in August, which will see a significant increase in nearby vehicle traffic.

The second project slated to begin in early spring is the revamping of Monarch Boulevard between Castle Pines Parkway and Glen Oaks Avenue. Work on the utility lines in preparation for the project began in mid-February. The work on Monarch is expected to wrap by approximately September 30.

All road project information can be found through a link on the home page of the City of Castle Pines website.

Parks & Recreation

After several opportunities for resident feedback, planning for Soaring Hawk Park is proceeding to the design phase. The park will be located just south of The Canyons development on the east side of I-25. An opportunity for resident input on new design concepts will take place on March 5, and then two plan recommendations will proceed for consideration with City Council at a meeting in June.

Wildfire Mitigation

Grant opportunities for wildfire mitigation opened February 14 and will remain open until March 29. Grants will provide 50% funding matches, with $5,000 available for HOA applicants and up to $250 available for individual homeowners per grant. The grant program helps fund work to reduce the risk of wildfires throughout Castle Pines. More information can be found on the City of Castle Pines website.

Urban Renewal Authority

A new Urban Renewal Authority (URA) has been constituted for the City of Castle Pines main commercial areas on Castle Pines Parkway. The URA includes members of the City Council and representatives from the Douglas County School District, Board of County Commissioners, South Metro Fire District and more. The purpose of the URA is to invest in business and commercial revitalization within the City of Castle Pines. Meetings of the URA are held the first Tuesday of each month as needed.
