Village Square Revitalization

Re-energizing Our Commercial Core

In 2012, with the help of Downtown Colorado, Inc. (DCI), the City conducted a Community Visioning and Strategic Assessment to examine potential actions for short- and long-term community and economic revitalization. With the new library coming to Village Square in 2016, there was an opportunity to re-evaluate our community needs and fine tune strategies to spur economic growth in the area.
 
DCI defined the construction of a new library as a catalyst opportunity where Castle Pines can capitalize on this investment to encourage revitalization of the greater Village Square area.

Recommendations

Short-term recommendations included better defining the Village Square area through changing traffic patterns, improving landscaping, enhancing medians, and improving pedestrian access and amenities. Short-term recommendations also encourage programming – or activities that inspire interaction such as chalk walls, climbing walls, etc. – throughout the area.
 
Longer-term recommendations included a comprehensive wayfinding program, potential road realignments, and encouraging live/work development in the area.
