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, Parker, Colorado Springs and Larkspur without making judgement or editorial comments. ~ Wade
Castle Rock –
Talus Flats Apartment Complex
Availability and a ordability of housing in the
greater Castle Rock area is becoming quite the
challenge to folks wanting to live here. Prices
of homes and condos are skyrocketing and as
a result, not everyone can a ord to purchase a
home in this area. Fortunately, there are several
large-scale apartment complexes currently
being built which should help mitigate this
problem in the near term. In The Meadows,
just west of the Town Center, the Talus Flats
Apartment Complex is under construction and
should be ready for occupancy by summer 2021. Once complete, this complex will have a total of 110 rental units, a high-end  tness center, outdoor pool, game room, courtyard, outdoor grills, picnic area and will be pet-friendly. Each unit will have a well-appointed kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, bedrooms will have walk-in closets, all rooms with window treatments, in-unit washer/dryer and built-in vacuum system. Pricing for these new apartments have not yet been announced. The apartment buildings are 4 stories tall, and residents will be within walking distance to numerous stores and restaurants, including facilities for medical care. It is one block from Castle Rock Adventist Hospital.
