As a home rule municipality, the Town of Castle Rock has its own set of local laws and codes. From time to time, those local laws need to be reviewed. A topic currently being discussed relates to animals, and the Town wants resident feedback.
The Town will host an open house from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 11, in Town Hall, 100 N. Wilcox St. Learn about the current ordinance, and give your feedback on provisions you agree with as well as what might need to change. If you can’t attend, visit CRgov.com/animals to provide feedback online.
Tell us about dogs, cats, chickens, bees, or other animals. The Town is also looking for feedback related to licensing requirements; the number and kinds of animals allowed; breed-specific bans; regulations related to pet shops, kennels or doggie daycares; as well as handling activities such as fostering, rescues and feral cats.
Resident feedback will be provided to Town Council and will be taken into consideration regarding changes that may be made to Town Code related to animals. An update to Council is anticipated as early as May. Please note that these codes are separate from HOA rules and regulations.
Updates will be posted at CRgov.com/animals.
