As of recent, the community has expressed concerns about growers cultivating marijuana in residential areas. In an effort to address this issue, a new ordinance is set to be presented at next week’s Town Council meeting.

Developed by Castle Rock Police Department and the Town attorney, talks will begin about proposed restrictions for growers. “I know that’s been an issue of much concern in the community,” said Bob Slentz, Town Attorney for Castle Rock.
