COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE
THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN UPDATE
The City of Castle Pines Comprehensive Plan was first adopted in 2016. While the Plan continues to provide clear and realistic direction for future growth, some changes are needed to reflect recent Plan implementation efforts, development activity, and demographic shifts within the City.
As the community evolves and grows, so do the needs of its residents. With your help, this Plan Update can be a guide for city leaders, businesses, and residents, as the City more than doubles in population over the next two decades.
The Comprehensive Plan is a community-driven process that establishes the vision for the future of the community, identifies goals and objectives to help guide development decisions, and lists key activities that shape the built and natural environments.
The Castle Pines community had the opportunity to review and provide comments on the 2021 Castle Pines Comprehensive Plan Update via an interactive online tool. View the Plan Update Adoptions Drafts at the links below.
To learn more about the Plan Update, watch the recorded City of Castle Pines Community Development Department virtual open house that took place on April 22, 2021. This open house presented the highlights of what’s new or changing in this plan.
Remember to mark your calendars for the May 27 Planning Commission Adoption Hearing.

• For residents and visitors, the Plan identifies details like locations for future commercial amenities, housing, parks, trails, facilities, etc.
• For business and property owners, the Plan includes land use recommendations and development policies.
• For City leaders and decision-makers, the Plan provides direction on the topics of development, policies, programs, and services, as well as gives guidance on budget and timing for capital improvements and development reviews.
To build a community where residents can live, work and play requires public investment, commercial development, and cooperation among community organizations to maximize funding and services.
