New Home Communities in the Meadows

Are you thinking about relocating to the beautiful Meadows community at historic Castle Rock? Maybe you currently live here and know what a great place this is to live in and are thinking of upgrading your first home. Luckily there are several planned new construction communities popping up around us. Click here  to learn more about the 5 builders that are offering new homes here in the Meadows. Joyce Homes is building amazing green homes to help your energy bills stay low starting in the high-$200s.  Meritage Homes is now offering 6 floor plans, either ranch style or 2-story homes starting in the mid- to high- $200s. Oakwood Homes is building in the Morningview neighborhood and are offering unique homes beginning in the low $400s for semi-custom luxury. And last, but not least, Richmond American Homes building in 3 communities in the Meadows and getting ready to build by the new Aspen View Academy Charter School. These are just a few of the amazing opportunities available in the Meadows for new construction and I’d love to help you find a perfect home for your family.

Castle Rock Starlighting Ceremony

We are just about 3 months away from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Do you ever feel the pressure of getting those perfect gifts? Before you know it January is here and those great family traditions you wanted to start have slipped by because we are so busy with holiday parties and shopping. Well, start your season off right with a wonderful Castle Rock tradition. This is one my family has always enjoyed. Luckily the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce and Fire Department have been lighting the star on top of the Castle Rock for 78 years. Even with 50,000 residents living in the town it’s these type of celebrations that give us the small town feel that we love here in Castle Rock. This ceremony will be held the Saturday before Thanksgiving, November 23, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. and the star will be lit at 5 p.m. on Wilcox Square. There will be carriage rides, hot chocolate and caroling. Even Santa Claus will be there. Click here for more details & I hope to see you there!

 

Castle Rock Transportation Plan: North Meadows Extension

Who is ready to see the North Meadows Extension construction start?  Well, according to the town of Castle Rock that is expected to begin in the fall of 2013.  This major project is currently the number one transportation priority in the town.  As soon as CDOT grants final right of way clearance we should see big changes coming to the Meadows.  This new road will connect from the Meadows to U.S. Highway 85 to Interstate 25 via North Meadows Drive and Castlegate Drive.  Building this roadway will provide a second northern access in and out of the Meadows.  Luckily the Town is now able to fund north and southbound on/off ramps from Interstate 25.  This extension is vital to relieving traffic and congestion through the Meadows community, especially with Castle Rock Adventist Hospital now open for business.  The town of Castle Rock has a great site linked to the TAP (Transportation Action Plan) to stay up-to-date on the progress http://www.crgov.com/tap.
