About the Castle Pines Home Rule Charter

The Charter is a community’s “constitution” and most important guiding document. The City’s Charter outlines the following:

  • Structure and organization of government
  • Business procedures to be followed by municipal government
  • Powers and limitations of municipal officials and agencies

The Charter cannot be easily amended, so great care has gone into drafting it.


Under Home Rule, Castle Pines residents are given greater authority to create laws that meet the needs and expectations of the community.
