KEEPING OUR BUSINESS OWNERS IN MIND:
On March 16, 2020, Mayor Tera Radloff has issued a Declaration of Emergency in response to COVID-19. The declaration secures access to future funds for business owners impacted by the coronavirus diseases.
“Our small business owners are vital to our economy and a staple to this community,” said Mayor Tera Radloff. “Our swift and aggressive action now will protect and ensure businesses in Castle Pines, who have supported our City, to receive uninterrupted access to necessary resources.”
These proactive steps to declare an emergency set the foundation to ensure business owners in Castle Pines receive access to loans with low interest rates, federal funding from FEMA, and grant programs to prevent and alleviate damages, loss, hardship or suffering.
“During this time of uncertainty, I ask that we come together and support our local businesses,” said Radloff. “They are a part of the necessary foundation that creates the quality of life in Castle Pines that we value. I ask that we come together and support our local business owners.”
