2019 community survey completeSince 2011, the Town has commissioned a resident and business survey in each odd-numbered year.
For 2019's survey, the Town partnered with Northwest Research Group.
The firm's work included a scientific study, in which randomly selected households were invited to participate, as well as a supplemental survey through which the entire community could provide feedback. A business survey was also conducted.
The scientific survey was fielded through in February and March, with the supplemental survey immediately following. View a preliminary report of the results, which was presented to Town Council in April.
A four-page document summarizing the results is also available. Further, the final, full report also includes results from this year's business survey.
2019 results highlights
- The Town overall remains a 3.5-Star community on Northwest Research Group’s 5-Star rating system
- The survey covered 53 performance measures, and 46 of those received an above-average rating (6 or higher on a 0-10 scale)
- Ratings related to the direction the Town is headed indicate continued concerns over growth; ensuring well-planned infrastructure for new development should continue as an area of focus

2015In 2015, the survey indicated Castle Rock is a place where the grass is greener. More than 700 residents responded to the survey. View the full report on that survey.
As a follow-up to the 2015 survey, the Town launched an online focus group to provoke in-depth responses regarding the topics of growth; transportation; parks, recreation and special events; and communications. Those conversations occurred from October 2015 to February 2016. Read the report provided to Town Council regarding that process.
