My goal in this monthly column is to inform our readers about current and planned changes going on around the Town of Castle Rock without making judgments or editorial comments.

A Message to Readers:
Frequently on social media, I see negative comments regarding the expansion and development of Castle Rock, Larkspur and surrounding communities. Unfortunately for those nay-sayers, change is both inevitable and predictable given the increase in the population of Douglas County. There are opportunities to participate in the planning process and give your input to government of cials. The Castle Rock Town Government and Larkspur Town Hall are always looking for volunteers to serve on commissions, advisory committees and councils to participate in the community and economic development process. Anyone who has the time and talent might want to consider becoming an active volunteer to positively impact these changes within our community. My goal in this monthly column is to inform our readers about current and planned changes going on around the Town of Castle Rock and Larkspur without making judgment or editorial comments. ~ Wade

Douglas County Slash and Mulch Drop-Off Site Now Open
Since our Federal, State and Local governments have issued “stay-at-home” orders, folks have been working on their lawns and property. As a result, this has created more than usual lawn waste for disposal. Rather than placing this lawn refuse into your weekly trash collection, we have an alternative. Douglas County’s slash-mulch site, at 1400 Caprice Drive in Castle Rock, opened April 4 and will remain open on Saturdays only from 8 am – 5 pm through October 31. The perfect place to dispose of limbs, shrubs and brush, the site also gives residents the opportunity to
go home with fresh mulch. Acceptable items at both sites include tree limbs, loose pine needles, shrubs, brush with a maximum length of 6 feet and a maximum diameter of 12 inches. Please note all loads must be covered upon arrival to the slash-mulch site. Due to the current COVID-19 public health crisis, please follow any instructions from on-site sta , stay in your vehicle until you are ready to unload and observe the social distancing mandate of at least 6 feet fromothers unloading their vehicles.
