Letter: Too much growth, too fast

Posted

It's extremely sad, and frustrating, to see the unchecked growth in Douglas County, and the cities within the county.

We all understand that growth will happen, but it needs to happen responsibly. Douglas County commissioners have approved every developer, without considering the infrastructure.

One would only have to look at the volume of traffic from Lone tree to Colorado Springs. How many accidents have to happen, on the stretch of highway, before the county commissioners slow down their approval of all development? How desperate does the water situation have to get? How many projects should be approved for downtown Castle Rock before the town council realizes that there will be no parking, which of course will ruin long-running celebrations such as the Starlighting, Oktoberfest, movie in the streets, etc.?

Douglas County commissioners and the Castle Rock Town Council need to address the safety and quality of life of the current residents. New developers need to be secondary, and should only be approved with the proper infrastructure by the county and various city councils.
