Guiding Documents

Guiding Documents

Our guiding documents shape how we grow and where we invest our resources. They create a shared vision for the long-term future of the City and are informed by resident opinion and crafted by City officials.

These plans and related documents are all public documents and available for viewing below.


Castle Pines Home Rule Charter

The Charter is a community’s “constitution” and most important guiding document.

The Charter cannot be easily amended, so great care has gone into drafting it. Residents overwhelmingly voted to approve the City’s first Home Rule Charter in May 2019. Under Home Rule, Castle Pines residents are given greater authority to create laws that meet the needs and expectations of the community.

Capital Improvement Plan

The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) provides a forecast of funds available for capital projects and identifies all planned capital improvements and their estimated costs over the five-year period. The most recent CIP is for the years 2019-2023. As the current plan is out of date, a more comprehensive CIP will be developed in 2021 for the years 2021-2025.
