Keene Ranch is located outside of the Castle Rock town limits.  One of the great benefits to this system is that we get to enjoy all the town’s conveniences and activities, yet our property taxes are based off of only Douglas County, (see zoning and taxes)  as well the sales tax based for any larger purchases (vehicles, etc) are based off our home address and does not include city sales tax.  The government entity for home building permits, law enforcement, etc is Douglas County.  Castle Rock is the county seat to Douglas County hosting the annual fair and other events and making county offices easy to access.

 The Town of Castle Rock is no longer viewed as just a bedroom community to both Denver and Colorado Springs.  Castle Rock has growing base of businesses and entrepreneurs right in the town center.  There is always something going on in town so be sure to check their schedule of events.  For more info on Castle Rock, visit
