Building: Douglas County Administration Building
Location: Castle Rock, Colorado
Type: OffIce/Admlnlstratlon
Size: Approximately 20,000 square feet -, In addition
there mill be approximately 10,000 square feet of unfinished garden level space.
Site: "Courthouse Square", a centrally located block
located In the town of Castle Rock, encompassing 90,600 square feet. The project site Is zoned B.2 and Is owned by Douglas County.
Objectlves/Concerns
The objective of this thesis will be to design a new facility to house the administrative departments of the Douglas County Government. The buildIng will replace the old Doug las County Courthouse which was destroyed by fire In 1978. The site, "Courthouse Square", has long been a point of reference and Identity for Douglas County and my goal will be to preserve It as the "town green" space.
I feel the following excerpts from A Pattern language, by Christopher Alexander, reflect many of my concerns for the new Douglas County Administration Building.
"Local government of communities and local control by the Inhabitants, will only happen If each community has Its own physical town hall which forms the nude us of Its political activity. A local town hall would contain two


basic features:
1 . It Is community territory for the group It serves; It Is mode In a ujoy which Invites people In for service, spontaneously, to debote policy, and the open space around the building Is shaped to sustain people gathering ond lingering.
2. It Is locate at the heart of the local community and Is within walking distance of everyone It serves."
The Douglas County'Administration ulldlng, In many ways, will be a "town" hall which will be serving on entire county. I feel It should give the community the Impression of belonging to everyone ond should be a building where people would wont to come naturally for assistance and guidance.
End Results
The final product of my thesis will be on architectural design solution for the Douglas County Government.
It will be presented graphically In both two and three dimensions with a programmatic booklet explaining the program procedures, the problem(s), and the graphic and verbal solutions to the prob Lem. For myself, the end result of my thesis will be a thorough learning experience In the Information gathering, programming procedures, and design development processes that are Involved In such a project.

GENERAL HISTORY OF DOUGLAS COUNTY AND THE ORIGINAL COURTHOUSE In 1861, Douglas County urns formed by the LegLsLoture of the territory of Knasos. The county seat lugs Located around Frank town and remained there until 1874, when the county was divided. The need for a centrally located county seat was recognized and after much dispute, an act was approved February 13,1874 that granted full power to the county commissioners to decide on the new Location for the county seat. On March 31, 1874, the citizens of Douglas County voted that H.M. Gould's homestead become the location of the county seat. The commissioners directed J.D. McIntyre, the county surveyor, to plot a town which they then named Castle Rock, the same name as a geological rock formation nearby. This formation was an early Landmark familiar to both Indians and new settlers.
r
A letter from a traveler out west, written home to on Iowa newspaper, Illustrates the point of this Impression:
Ey going from Denver to Leadvllle via the D & RG Railway, one has a chance to see some of the most noted places In Colorado. After about an hourt ride from Denver, Castle Rock on the summit of a high hill which overshadows a little village of the same name, can be seen. True enough, It does look some like an old ruined castle, but It requires the name and a stretch of the Imagination to see much of a resemblance.
The first courthouse In Castle Rock was a strucutre which had been moved from Franktown, and was considered temporary.
6


In 1874, Lots around the courthouse square mere being soLd to pay for the construction of a permanent courthouse. It wasn't until 1888, when a care lessly thrown cigar butt burned down the first courthouse, that the Idea of a more permanent structure was considered. On May 2, 1888, an editorial was placed In the "Castle Rock Journal" requesting that a "fireproof" stone courthouse be built to Insure the safety of the records. The financial situation of the county was considered to be sufficient enough to build the new courthouse. The local commissioners decided to see how the residents felt and placed on the ballot of the general election of 1888, the Issue of constructing a new courthouse. The bill was passed and an architect was chosen. After reviewing two plans for the new courthouse, the commissioners chose one designed by W.R. Parsons and Sons of Topeka, Kansas.
In March of 1889, construction began on the new courthouse located In the 300' x 300' square which had been platted In 1874.
The general contractor was J.M. Anderson of Emporia, Kansas whose bid was $19,389.50. The final cost of the structure, Including furnishings, architectural fees($1,325.76), etc., was $33,000.04. The building was completed In mid 1889. The completed building measured 62 feet (north-south) by 120 feet (east-west) on a total of two plus acres (300 feet by 300 feet) of property, located at 301 Wilcox Street. The courthouse was a two story building with a walkout basement. The top floor was comprised of the 44 foot wide courtroom, jury rooms,
7


district court, and the judge's chambers. On the main floor were the offices of the county clerk, county treasurer, county assessor, and county planner. In the basement was the jail, sheriff's department, the county commissioner's meeting room, and the county building department. The exterior walls were constructed of beige Castle Rock lava stone, which was highly prized not only In Castle Rock but In Denver as well. To add to the stone work, the roof was constructed of broken facades with four stone towers. The final touch was a 30 foot stamped tin tower which presided over the surrounding countryside.
In 1976 the Douglas County Courthouse was placed on the National Historic Register as a building of significant historical value. The following descriptions on Its architectural significance come from the application which placed the building of the Register:
"The Douglas County Courthouse Is truly a landmark, and a handsome one at that! Its central tower Is clearly visible from all parts of Castle Rock as well as from Interstate 25 when still some miles south of the town.
The building Is substantial, In excellent condition, and has that solid visual aspect so appropriate to a courthouse.
The building Is quite symetrical, though In no wasy dull; and It Is complimented by large trees, both deciduous and evergreen, throughout the entire square.
The crowning glory of the Courthouse Is Its highly decorative twoer beautifully proportioned for the size of the building, and far enough above the ground to be taken for dressed stone (though In reality It Is stamped tin). With Its Interesting roofs, broken facades, excellent stonework, and five towers, the Courthouse Is a true architectural statement and far beyond the typical small courthouse of Its era.
The Courthouse Is two and one-half stories above grade, constructed of beige Castle Rock Lava Stone, slightly rusticated, with brick chimneys above the main cornice (architectural stamped tin) line.
8


The Roofing was originally standing metal seam, now replaced by black asphalt shingles. The roof ridges (east and west ends) originally hcd metal combing — now removed.
The gable end towers (4) are of architectural tin on wood backing, as Is the main tower.
The windows are double hung wood with stone surround and sills. All headers are flat stone except In the main courtroom where they are flat-arched.
The ground floor measures 62' north-south by 100' east-
west.
The building Is In excellent condition and has suffered only minor changes over Its 89 year life.
The style Is best described as Victorian institutional Roman with four purely Victorian corner towers and a Renaissance (Borromini) domed central tower."
On March 10, 1978 fire once again destroyed Douglas County's governmental structure and with It an Important part of Its history. Rose Ann Lucers hod started a small fire In the basement stairwell next to the treasurers office. Apparently she hcd only Intended to create enough confusion to allow her to release her friend's boyfriend, who was being held In the courthouse jail on a charage of driving under the Influence of alcohol. Needless to say, the Douglas County Courthouse was totally destroyed that night.

IMPACT OF COURTHOUSE FIRE
The purpose of the rather In-depth architectural description of the old courthouse Is two-fold:
1. To show why the people had such an attachment for
the building which In turn heIps explain the following social Impacts of the courthouse fire.
2. To give a basis for the desired characteristics for the new building chosen by the architectural design committee which are explained later.
To the supplement the fact that the Douglas County Courthouse was extremely significant to It's people,’ I am Including letters to the editor, newspoper articles, and various recollections kindled shortly after the fire of March 10, 1978.
From a letter to the Editor, Douglas County News, March
1978:
To the Editor:
"Castle Rock? Oh, Yeah! That's the town with the beautiful old courthouse In the center.
It happened March 10th at midnight: that beautiful old courthouse burned down.
The agonizing destruction tore at the hearts of the bystanders. Sorry to say, I was there, I was every blaze end In a puff of smoke, leaving black, merltless embers In Its torrid path. One by one, the window panes of past and present shattered; ending their struggle. Charred boards unwillingly crumbled to ruins from where they were placed by hands of destiny. At last, so reluctantly, the cupola collapsed upon the smoking walls th t had supported It oil those years.
Young men, old men, professionals and volunteers raced to conquer the ferocious blazes. They emerged as exhausted, wet, soot covered warriors with unwelcome expressions of defeat.
A favorite of many, that magnificent, old replica of 'one heck of a building' no longer exists. There was sadness In the faces of the townspeople. They all suffered a great loss. Then there are those of us who always looked on admiringly at the old courthouse as we passed through Castle Rock. We too, will miss, but retain the Indestructable memory of the Douglas County Courthouse."

From on article In the Douglas County News, March 1978, by Karen Griffiths:
I
"The Douglas County Courthouse (built In 1890) was destroyed by fire early Saturday morning March 11, 1978. An emptiness engulfed me when' I heard the news. Places we have been to and liked, and scenes we have become comfortably familiar with often touch a sensitivity level In our minds or hearts, and we grow to ho Id special Incomparable feeling s about them. 0 id bulidIngs
It seems can especially radiate a particular charm. Don't we all hold dear a fond memory or affection for an old porch swing, a lofty barn or friendly sunlit room of perhaps our grandmother1s home? Such places or houses or scenes that have deeply touched us somehow actually become a part of us. Some old structures are weathered and weakened; faded and dim suggestions of how they once looked. They might make allusion to a mellowed passing of the seasons through the years. But other old buildings still stand bold, erect lovingly cared for and In good repair. They are as proud historical signatures speaking well for the people, the materials and the creative styles of the past...
Old buildIngs have often btended In so well and for so long that they become a part of our lives. We can dally look at them with our eyes and yet we don't really see them anymore. Instead, It goes deeper than that. We actually grow to feel their presence and feel a sense of security In having something familiar, substantial and well-established existing along side of us. And when an old building... an old friend such as this dies o tragic death, we are left feeling rather cold and alone.
New functional concrete, steel and gloss structures can be erected, but hopefully, we will always leave room In our cities, In our towns, and In our hearts for the magnificent old buildings. They are gifts from the past. Most often, they provide visual pleasure, a well known atmosphere and setting for the present and a heritage for the future. ’ In different ways they speak to us. ’ In different ways we need them. It's a sad thing when a great old historic building Is destroyed."
From the book, Castle Rock: A Grass Roots History, (1980), author Robert L. Lowenburg stated the fo1lowing In regards to the Courthouse on the Square:
"From the very beginning of each county seat community, the courthouse played an Integral part In the pageant of life surrounding It. ’ It was where the land ownership records were stored, legal judgements were made, celebrations were held, and In time of crisis It served as a central meeting place.
11


The Courthouse become the archLtecturoL focus of the town.
It was where the history of the county wos preserved, not only In documents, but In the more human histories such os photographic displays and rolls of honor. It was the center around which the community developed.
When the courthouse was originally constructed as the largest and most prominent building In the town, It effectively displayed the pride and resourcefuIness of the community.
Elections to choose the county seat often Involved bitter rivalry. Such designation was a great prize to a community for It brought physical and political distinction as well as the prospect for greater community activity.
Courthouses were Intended to be ornamental as well as functional. The exterior displayed a variety of lines, shapes and materials In the construction. Architectural embellishments often created a resplendent appearcnce for the passerby. Towers were common and often boasted clocks or bells, which added to their attraction.
The courthouse developed a permanent Immovable visage as It occupied a place at the center of town, amidst the trees and grass on the square. The stately setting befitted Its rote In the community, for the courthouse on the square provided a focal point of continuity between the past and the present.
It helped to create the quality of life which was characterized bu the scene found around the town square and along malnstreet.
It Is Important to remember that atmosphere as smalltown America rediscovers the value of Its own communities.
As towns across the country concentrate on making main streets and town squares vital social and commercial centers once again,
It Is necessary to consider the Image they wish to present, since good design costs no more than bad design. Let us remember the Courthouse on the Square for more than one reason."
It Is my opinion that the preceding statements more than adequately show the need and significance for a new structure to be constructed on Courthouse Square. ’ Immediately following the fire, many suggestions were raised concerning the square.
Some of the suggestions were to rebuild the old courthouse (this was deemed structurally unfeasible), use the square as a town park with bandstand and recreation areas, or to build a small county museum. At this time a new criminal justice center was being constructed and It was decided that the Court, the sheriff's
12


deportment, and one or two other departments would be housed In thus new center. The final decision was to build a new County Office Administration office on the square housing the following
deportments; the commissioners, the County Attorney, Clerk and Recorder, the Assessor, the Treasurer, the Deportment, and the MoIntenonce Deportment.
the County P Canning
13




ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN COMMITTEE
Following the Courthouse fire, on architectural Design Committee of county citizens was appointed by the Douglas County Commissioners to represent county opinion relative to the exterior of the new building ond to the use of courthouse square. The characteristics desired by the Committee for Courthouse Square were:
1. Courthouse Square should continue to be a "town green".
2. The grassed area and trees should be preserved.
3. The tennis courts should be removed and replaced with g reen.
4. The building should be centrally within the square.
5. The building should be approximately the same size as Its predecessor.
The characteristics desired by the Committee for the building's exterior were:
1. Clock Tower
2. Roof: Mansard with bell-shaped hip; variation In height.
3. Windows: tall, narrow, Inset; arch and rectangular mixture.
4. Doors: arched entrance doorway; massive; large rectangular massive double doors with windows In upper half;
use hardware to match massive emphasis.
5. Exterior: Rough-hewn texture similar to the other store buildings still standing; tan color.
6. Footprint: Broken exterior lines; use vertical planes with windows and doors In combination with square or rectangular building shape.
14


COUNTY OBJECTIVES AND BUDGET
The county government desired o building which would provide the following qualities:
1. Proximity of Administrative Deportments
2. Shored use of common facilities
3. Public Accessibility
4. Efficient Occupation of Space
5. Quality of Space
6. Image and’ Identity
The county commissioners have allocated the sum of approximately 1,000,000 dollars for the construction of the new county courthouse. This amount Is to cover the total cost of construction of the estimated required building area of 20,000 square feet. ' It does not Include the cost of the lond, professional fees, Internal furnishings, or the additional 10,000 square foot garden level.

SO'CIO ECONOMIC PROFILE
The following Is a socio-economic profile of Douglas County prepored bu the Denver Regional Council of Governments which ujqs published In October 1980.
When planning for the future of any area, It Is Important to understand the characteristics of the population and the economy. Summarized below ore some of the more Important socio-economic characteristics of Douglas County.
Population Growth
Douglas County hos been and Is continuing to grow at a rapid rate. During the post ten years, the County experienced o total population growth of 212°( as compared to the rest of the Denver region, which grew by 34% over the some period. While no other county exceeded Douglas County's annual rate of change of 21°o, the Qbsolute number of persons added to the County Is second lowest. The average gain per year for Douglas County was 1,780 persons.
The numberof households has olso been growing at o rapid rate In Douglas County. Households have Increased from 2,682 to 7,000 between 1970 and 1980, The average household size In the County Indicates that majority of these new households are families rather than single adults. The household size In Douglas County In 1980 wos estimated at 3.73 persons per household compared to 3.41 In 1970. The trend In the rest of the region was to smaller households with a decline In household size from 3.05 persons per household to 2.64.
With any smalt area showing rapid growth, migration Is the major component of change with natural Increase (births minus deaths) playing a relatively minor role. This Is true In Douglas County where over the 1970-80 time frame, 94.3% of the population Increase was due to net In-migration rather than natural Increase as compared to 75.7% for the five-county area.
Income LeveIs
Douglas County has a higher median household Income than the five-county region; $17,166 compared to $16,700 In 1977.
This Is reflected In the relatively lower concentrations of households In the lower Income ranges and the concommltant higher concentrations In the upper Income ranges. This Is especially true In the $28,000 to $36,000 range and the $36,000+ range. In these two highest ranges were 19.82/0 of all Douglas
16


County households as compared to only 15.12°= of all households In the five-county region.
Per capita Incomes In Douglas County are estimated to be less than In the five-county area ($6,132 compared to $6,569 In 1977). This Is partially due to the higher household sizes In the county which suggest a higher number of dependents. However, per capita Incomes are Increasing at a faster rate In the County (31% between 1973 cnd; 1977) than In the remainder of the region (29%).
Employment
The employment picture In Douglas County can be described from two perspectives. One looks at the number and types of jobs available In Douglas County. The other analyzes the labor force characteristics of the population living In the County.
The only data available which describes the labor force living In the County comes from the 1970 Census. At that time, the County contained a larger proportion of professional and managerial occupations than the five-county region. Farmers and farm workers made up 10% of Douglas County's labor force but only 1% of the regional labor force. Areas where the County occupational proportions were significantly less than the other five counties Include sales workers and clerical workers.
Unemployment In Douglas County was estimated by the Colorado Division of Employment and Training at 2.4% of the resident labor force In June 1979. At the same time, the rate for the eight-county Denver-BouIder Labor Market Area was 4.9%, and the State was 5.1%. One reason for the tow rate Is the large percentage of County residents who are In professional or managerial occupations (33% In 1970).
While detailed characteristics of the current labor force living In the County cannot be established, the number of jobs In the County have been estimated. In 1971, some 2,648 persons worked In the County according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Activities. By 1976, 4,345 jobs were filled In the County.
The three largest Industrial groups were retail and wholesale trade, the service Industry and the government sector.
In 1980 It Is estimated that there were approximately 6,500 jobs In Douglas County.

CASTLE ROCK PLANNING
Rock's current long range planning efforts began in 1973. Data concerning Castle Rock and its was collected and analyzed, community planning concepts were formulated, discussed and modified neetings and hearings were held. As a result, on March 26, 1980, the Castle Rock Planning and on April 3, 1980, the Board of Trustees took formal action adopting the following goals and d maps and plans as the Town's Master Plan.
- Plan and manage growth in such a way as to achieve expressed cormiunity goals and objectives ly, economical, efficient, attractive and equitable a manner as possible.
jrage and accomodate new growth that benefits the area while preserving the existing character antity of the community.
a community growth trends in such a way as to allow community services to keep pace while ining high quality.
jrage growth that expands the local Castle Rock economic base in conjunction with building up sidential base.
jrage growth that fills in the developable areas within the Town limits first and then the areas around the Town.
steps to encourage Douglas County to develop and implement a plan aimed at not allowing urban avelopment to take place in the Castle Rock fringe area without Town services, and therefore, il. Steps should be taken to coordinate Town planning with Douglas County Planning efforts.
jrban service area boundary for the Town of Castle Rock is as shown on the land use plan map. this area the Town of Castle Rock ultimately plans to provide utility, police, fire and other government services to urban development when the areas are annexed to the Town, in keeping ie phasing of the plan. Outside of this area, the Town will not provide such services. Referential Utility Service Boundary for the Town of Castle Rock is as shown on the land use ap. Due to the established upper elevation limits of the water pressure zones, developers of autside this service boundary will be required to take additional measures in providing water
a
urban service area boundary will be reviewed every three to five years from the standpoint ability of the Town to provide urban services, the desires of the community for additional , the stated interests of abutting landowners and other applicable factors.
1 a regional sewage treatment plant is built, only areas that may be served by a gravity flow collection system, will be considered for development. When Castle Rock population exceeds the lagoon system will reach capacity and new treatment capacity will need to be developed.
use of solar energy and the use of energy and water conservation techniques in the planning, and construction of new developments is encouraged.

ties with the aim to provide a Daiance in cne community uetween juui emu wurners.
i adequate amount of level, well drained land that is convenient to street and railroad access ild be reserved in sufficiently large parcels for industrial/office purposes.
le Town encourages the location of only those industries which will not: create air, odor, noise, it or vibration pollution; detract from the area's environmental amenities; and use large amounts /ater. It is expected thatsuch industries will be financial and visual assets to the community.
le to the location of much of the proposed industrial areas along the entranceways into the commu-', a planned unit development or similar type of land use regulation approach should be utilized illow the Town or County to give detailed consideration to the proposed industrial developments.
irk closely with the Douglas County industrial promotion efforts in attracting new industries and ;r employment opportunities and expanding existing industry in the Castle Rock area.
- To encourage the creation of adequate commercial facilities and services in Castle Rock to ? needs of the community and surrounding areas.
le preservation and enhancement of the downtown area is encouraged due to its critical importance :he economic vitality and sense of community in the Town.
le development of two neighborhood commercial areas - one north and one south - will be encouraged i, in the opinion of the Town, a market is determined to exist for such centers. A planned unit ilopment processing approach is encouraged for these centers due to. the sensitive nature of :ing such neighborhood commercial centers in predominantly residential areas.
i order to prevent new strip commercial development along major streets in Castle Rock, new lercial areas should be located in concentrated clusters.
;w commercial development is encouraged to be attractively designed to fit in with the character scale of Castle Rock.
ie development of highway service commercial centers near the Uolfensberger-I-25 and South :ox-I-25 interchanges should utilize planned unit developments or similar types of land use .ilation approaches to allow the Town to control the use and design of these entranceways.
unconforming uses, such as industrial and commercial uses located within residential areas and ile home parks located within commercial areas, are discouraged from being perpetuated.
j_ - Develop a transportation/circulation system which fulfills the transportation needs of ick residents in a safe, convenient and efficient manner while minimizing environmental and / disruptions.
Dtimize pedestrian and bicycle travel within Castle Rock by aggressively implementing the iway component of the Parks Master Plan. Bikeways and sidewalks shall be provided by the devel-* in all new developments. These should be designed to link residential areas, shopping areas, -eational areas and educational facilities.
ie roadway plan component of the Master Plan identifies existing and future collector and arial street corridors within the community. As development is planned along the identified sets, appropriate rights-of-way for arterial streets and collector streets shall be dedicated the Town. Insure that Douglas County reserves the identified rights-of-way in the community's ige area which is presently located outside the corporate limits of Castle Rock.
igh priority items in the roadway plan are considered to be the grade separated crossing of the lroad at Wolfensberger Road, the Highway 36 bypass past the High School, the extension of North cox to connect with High School Road, and construction of Miller Boulevard with a grade sepa-ed crossing at the railroad.
alicies and regulations shall be adopted resulting in the developers of lands served by major sets paying a significant proportion of the costs of constructing such streets.
rive cuts onto arterial and collector streets should be held to a minimum in order to preserve traffic carrying capacity of such streets.
11 future railroad crossings shall be grade separated with the costs paid for by the benefiting perty owners/developers.
ased upon the consideration that transportation systems other than automobiles, sidewalks, and eways will be needed for the movement of people in the Castle Rock community, steps should be en to analyze the need for public transportation services now and in the future. This analysis uld consider the need for such services both within the community and between Castle Rock and er communities in the region. It should also include a determination of the need to preserve lands for such facilities as park and ride lots, bus pullout areas and a transit center. "


3oal - Take steps to realize Castle Rock's long range plan by formulating, adopting and util-a comprehensive implementation program and strategy.
es_
Upon adoption of the land use plan and policies, immediate steps should be taken to update the own's zoning regulations and other development regulations and requirements. All such policies, egulations and requirements should be examined to see how these can be upgraded to implement the and use and street plan.
Upon adoption of the updated plan and policies, copies should be sent to Douglas County and the enver Regional Council of Governments for inclusion as an integral part of the plans of those urisdictions.
All future zoning approvals should be in conformance with the Town's adopted use plan and policies.
In order to insure that the Town's land use and street plan reflects up to date information and he then current desires of the residents of the community, the Town should go through a formal lan review and updating every four years, or sooner, if rapid change has occurred.

The topography of the site Is characterized by a relatively constant slope of approximately 4 feet diagonally descending from the southwest corner to the north-east corner. Also, the demolition of the previous building left an excavation of an area about 70 feet In diameter In the center of the site with a gradual fall to a depth at center of 7 feet below normal grade at the perimeter of the excavation.

Each mechanical supply and exhaust ventilation system shall be equipped ujlte a readily accessible means for either shut-off or volume reduction and shut-off tuhen ventilation Is not required.
Cooling with Outdoor Air (Economizer Cycle)
Each fan system shall be designed to use up to and Including 100 percent of thefan system capacity for cooling with outdoor air automatically whenever Its use-will result In lower usage of new energy.
Simultaneous Heating and Cooling Concurrent operation of Independent heating and cooling systems serving common spaces and requiring the use of new energy for heating or cooling shall be minimized by one or both of the following;
By providing sequential temperature control of both heating and cooling capacity In each zone.
By limiting the heating energy Input through automatic reset control of the heating medium temperature (or energy Input rate) to only that necessary to offset heat loss due to transmission and Infiltration and, where applicable, to heat the ventilation air supoly to the spac e.
Combustion Heating Equipment:
All gas and oil fired comfort heating equipment shall show a minimum combustion efficiency of 75 percent at mcxlmum rated output.
Electrically Operated Systems Components, Cooling '.lode:
HVAC system components, whose energy Input Is entirety electric, shall show a Coefficient of Performance (COP) Cooling not less than the values shown In the energy code tables for the specific components.

Electrical Systems
Power Factor:
Utilization equipment, rated greater than 1,000 W and lighting equipment greater than 15W, with an Inductive reactance load component, shall have a power factor of not less than 85 percent under rated load conditions. Power factor of less than 85 percent shall be corrected to at least 90 percent under rated toad conditions. Power factor corrective devices, Installed to comply with this Code, shall be switched with the utilization equipment, except where this results In an unsafe condition or Interferes with the Intended operation of the equipment.
Service Voltage:
Where a choice of service voltages Is available, a computation shall be made to determine which service would produce the least energy loss, and that voltage shall be selected.
60


Voltage Drop:
In onu building, the maximum total voltage drop snail not exceed 3 percent In brance circuits or feeders, for a total of 5 percent to the furthest outlet based on steady state design load conditions.

HANDICAPPED CODE REVIEW
In 1975 the Colorado Legislature passed a lam which extended the application of the 1973 "Handicapped Lam" to the construction of privately funded buildings. The lam states In part,
"The governmental unit responsible for the enforcement of this Artiele shall grant exceptions or modify any partleu lar Standard or Specification when It Is determined that It Is Impractical and mould create an unusual hardship or mould unreasonably complicate the construction, alteration or repair In question. Any such exception or modification of the provisions of this Article shall be made In writing as a matter of Public Record." ' It Is the Intent of the Lam to make all buildings accessible to and functional for the physically handicapped to, through, and within their doors without loss of function, space or facility where the general public Is concerned.

Future Strategy For Accomodation
As evidenced by the table In the preceding section, the building designed for 1984 mill not be adequate In area by the year 1990. Various solutions to the need for more space mill undoubtedly be proposed at this future time.
An Important consideration for a gromlng tomn Is to Insure the domntomn are an adequate amount of open green space. At the early stages of design this consideration suggests a building of limited size that mill preserve as much of the open space at Courthouse Square as Is feasible. This approach mould be a futile exercise If In the future expansion mere to be accomodated on the site In any but a costly and unconventional manner.
Therefore, a strategy Is suggested mhereby the building described In this program Is to remain an Independent and undisturbed structure. As additional areas are required they mould be found In satellite facilities proximate to the Administration Building. Revised allocations of departmental space and restructuring of the buildings composition mould serve as a means of dealing mlth gromth.
Eventually, the Administration Building might adopt a nem tenant better satisfied by Its facilities and the county offices mould once again re-group In a nem comp lex.

GE IERAL HISTORY OF DOUGLAS A1 D T H E ORIGINAL C URTHOUSE In 1861, Douglas County was formed by the LegLslature of the terrLtory of Knasas. The county seat was Located around Franktown and remaLne d there untLL 1874, when the county was dLvLded. The need for a centrally Located county seat was recognLzed and after m uc ' dLspute, an act was approved February 1311874 that granted full power to the county commLssLoners to decLde on the new LocatLon for the county seat. On March 31, 1874, the cLtLzens of Douglas County voted that H . M . Gould1 s homestead become the LocatLon of the county seat. The commLssLoners dLrected J . D . the county surveyor, to plot a town whLch they then named Castle Rock , the same name as a geologLcal rock formatLon nearby. ThLs formatLon was an early Land mark famLLLar to both. lndLans and new settlers. A Letter from a traveler out west, wrLtten home to an Iowa newspaper, Lllustrates the poLnt of thLs LmpressLon: By goLng from Denver to Lea dvLLLe vLa the D & RG RaL L way , one has a chance to see some of the most noted places Ln Colorado. After about an hourt rLde from Denver, C astle Rock on the summLt of a hLgh hLLL whLch overshadow s a LLttle vLLLage o f the same name, can be seen. True enough , Lt does L o ok some LLke an old ruLned castle, but Lt requLres the name and a stretch of the LmagLnatLon to see much of a resemblance. The fLrst courthouse L n Castle Rock was a strucutre whLch had been moved from Franktow n , and was consLdered temporary. 6

PAGE 14

In Lots around the courthouse square were beLng sold to pay for the constructLon of a permanent courthouse. It wasn't untLl when a carelessly thrown cLgor butt burned down the fLrst courthouse, that the Ldeo of a more permanent structure was consLdered. On M ay 2, on edLtOrLoL was placed Ln the "Castle Rock JournaL" requestLng that a " fLreproof" stone courthouse be buLLt to Lnsure the safety of the records. The fLnoncLoL sLtuotLon of the county was consLdered to be suffLCLent enough to buLLd the new courthouse. The LocaL commLssLoners decLded to see how the resLdents felt and pLaced on the baLLot of the generaL eLectLon of the Lssue of constructLng a new courthouse. The bLLL was passed and on orchLtect was chosen. After revLewLng two plans for the new courthouse, the commLssLoners chose one desLgned by W . R . Parsons and Sons of Topeka, Kansas. In March of constructLon began on the new courthouse Located Ln the 300' x 300' square whLch hod been plotted Ln The generaL contractor was J . 1 . Anderson of EmporLo , Kansas whose bLd was The fLnoL cost of the structure, LncLudLng furnLshLngs, orchLtecturoL etc., was $33,000.04. The buLLdLng was completed Ln mLd The completed buLLdLng measured 62 feet (north-south) by feet (east-west) on a totaL of two plus acres (300 feet by 300 feet) of property, Located at 30L WLLco x Street. The courthouse was a two story bu LLdLng WLth a walkout basement. The top f l oo r was comprLsed of the 44 foot wLde courtroom, jury rooms, 7

PAGE 15

dLstrLct court, and t h e j udge' s c hambers. O n the maLn floor were the offLces of the county clerk, county treasurer, county assessor, and county planner. In the basement was t h e jaLL, s herLff' s department, t h e county commLssLoner' s eetLng room , and the county buLLdLng depar t ment. The exterLor w aLLs were constructed of beLge Castle Rock Lava stone, whLch was hLghly prLzed not only Ln Castle Rock but Ln Denver as weLL . To add to the stone work, the roof was constructed of broken facades wLth four stone towers. The fLnaL touch was a 30 foot stamped tLn tower whLc h presLded over the surroundLng countrysLde. In 1976 the Douglas County Courthouse was placed on the NatLonaL HLstorLc RegLster as a buLLdLng of sLgnLfLcant hLstor LcaL value. T h e foLLowLng descrLptLons on Lts archLtecturaL sLgnLfLcance come from t h e appLLcatLon whLch placed t h e buLLdLng of the RegLster: " The Douglas County Courthouse Ls truly a Landmar k , and a handsome on e at that! Its central tower Ls clearly vLsLbLe from aLL parts of Castle Rock as w eLL as from Interstate 25 when stLLL some m LLes south of the tow n . The buLLdLng Ls substantLaL, Ln exceLLent condLtLon, and has that soLLd vLsuaL aspect so approprLate to a courthouse. The buLLdLng Ls quLte symetrLcaL, though L n no wasy duLL; and L t Ls c o m pLL mented by Large trees, both decLduous and evergreen, throughout t h e entLre square. The crow nLng glory of the Courthouse Ls Lts hLghly decora tLve t woer beautLfuLLy proportLoned for the sLze of the buLLdLng , and far enou gh above the ground to b e taken for dressed stone (thbugh Ln reaLLty Lt Ls stamped tLn).

Apparently she hod only Lntended to create enough confusLon to aLLow her to release her frLend1S boyfrLend , who was beLng held Ln the courthouse joLL on a c horoge of drLvLng under the Lnfluence of aLcohoL. Needless to say, the Douglas County Courthouse was totaLLy destroyed that nLght. 9

To gLve a bosLs for the desLred chorocterLstLcs for the new buLLdLng chosen by the orchLtecturoL desLgn commLttee whLc h ore expLoLned Later. To the supplement the fact that the Douglas County Courthouse was extremely sLgnLfLcont to Lt's people, I om LncLudLng Letters to the edLtor, newspaper ortLcles, and vorLous recoLLec-tLons k LndLed shortly after the fLre of March F rom a Letter to t h e EdLtor, Douglas County News, March To the EdLtor: "Castle Rock? Oh, Yeah! That's the town wLth the beoutLfuL old courthouse Ln the center. It happened March 10th at mLdnLght: that beoutLful old courthouse burned down . The ogonLzLng destructLon tore at the hearts of the by standers. Sorry to soy, I was there, I was every b Laze end Ln a puff of smoke, LeavLng black, merLtLess embers Ln Lts torrLd path. One by one, the wLndow panes of past and p resent shattered; endLng theLr struggle. Charred boards unwLLLLng l y crumbled to ruLns from where they were placed by hands of destLny. At Last, so reLuctantLy , the cupola coLLapsed upon the smokLng waLLs t h t had supported Lt aLL those years. Young men, old men , professLonaLs and volunteers raced to conquer the ferocLous blazes.

An emptLness engulfed m e when I heard t h e news. Places w e hove been to a n d LLked, and scenes w e hove becom e comfortably fomLLLor wLth o ften touch a sensLtLvLty Level Ln our mLnds or hearts, and w e grow to hold specLol Lnco mporoble feeLLngs about them. Old buLldLngs Lt seems con especLolly rodLote a portLculor charm. Don't w e all hold dear a fond memory or offectLon for on old porch s w Lng , a lofty born o r frLendly sunLLt room of perhaps our grandmother' s home? Such places or houses or scenes that hove deeply touched us somehow actually become a port of us. Some old structures ore weathered and weakened; faded and dL m suggestLons of how they once looked. They mLght make ollusLon to a mellowed passLng of the seasons through the years. But other old buLLdLngs stLLL stand bold, erect lovLngly cared for and Ln good repoLr. They ore as p roud hLstorLcol sLgnotures speakLng well for the people, the moterLals and the creotLve styles of the past ... Old buLLdLngs hove often blended Ln so well and for so long that they become a port of our LLves. W e con doLLy look at them wLth our eyes and yet we don't really see them anymore. Instead, Lt goes deeper than that. W e actually grow to feel theLr presence and feel a sense of securLty Ln hovLng somethLng famLLLar, substantLoL and well-establLshed exLstLng along sLde of us. And when on old b uLLdLng ••• an old frLend such as thLs dLes a trogLc death , w e ore left feeLLng rather cold and alon e .

In dLfferent ways w e need them . It' s a sod thLng when a g reat old hLstorLc buLLdLng Ls destroyed. " From the book, Castle Rock : A Grass Roots HLstory, ( 1980), author Robert L . Lowenbu r g stated the followLng Ln regards to the Courthouse on the Square: "Fro m the very begLnnLng of each county seat communLty , the courthouse played an Lntegral port Ln t h e pageant o f LLfe s urroundLng Lt. It was where the Lan d o wnershLp record s were stored, Leg a l judgements were mode , celebrotLons were held, a n d Ln tLme of crLsLs Lt served as a central meetLng place. 11

PAGE 19

The Courthouse becam e the orchLtectura l focus o f t h e tow • It was where the hLstor of the count was preserv e d , not only Ln documents, but Ln the more human hLstorLes s u c h a s photo grophLC dLsplays and rolls of honor. It the center aroun d whLch the communLty developed. When the courthouse was orLgLnally constructed as the L argest and most promLnent buLldLng Ln t h e tow n , Lt effectLvely d Ls played t h e prLde and resourcefulness of the communLty. ElectLons to choose the county seat often Lnvolved bLtter rLvalry. Such desLgnatLon was a great prLze to a communLty for Lt brought physLcal and poLLtLcaL dLstLnctLon as well as the prospect for greater communLty actLvLty. Courthouses were Lntended to be ornamental as well as functLonal. The exterLor dLsplayed a varLety of LLnes , shapes and materLals L n the constructLon. ArchLtectural e mbeLLLshments often created a resplendent appearance for the passerby. Towers were common and often boasted clock s or bells, whLch added to theLr attractLon. The courthouse developed a permanent Lmmovable v Lsage as Lt occupLed a place at the center of town , amLdst the trees and gross on the square. The stately settLng befLtted Lts role Ln the communLty, for the courthouse on the square provLded a focal poLnt of contLnuLty between the past and the present. It helped to create the quaLLty of LLfe whLch was characterLzed by the scene found around the town squar e and along maLnstreet. It Ls Lmportant to remembe r that atmosphere as smaLL tow n AmerLca redLscovers the value of Lts own communLtLes. As towns across the country concentrate on makLng m aLn streets and town squares vLtal socLal and commercLal centers once agaLn, Lt Ls necessar y to cons Lde r the Lmage they wLsh to present, sLnce good desLgn costs no more than bad desLgn. Let us remember the Courthouse on the Square for more than one reason. " I t Ls my o pLnLon that the precedLng statements more than adequately show the need and sLgnLfLcance for a new structur e to be constructed on Courthouse Square. l mmedLately foLLowLng the fLre, many suggestLons were raLsed concernLng the square. Some of the suggestLons were to rebuLld the old courthouse (thLs was d e emed structurally u nfeasLble), use the square as a tow n park wLth bandstand and recreatLon areas, or to buLLd a small county museum . At thLs tLme a new crLmLnal justLce center was beLng constructed and Lt was decLded that the Court, the sherLff's 12

SummorLzed below o r e som e of the more L mportant socLo-economLc ch oracterLstLcs of Douglas County. PopulotLon Growth Douglas C ounty has been and LS contLnuLng to grow at a ropLd rote. DurLng the post ten year s , the County experLenced a total populatLon growth o f as compared to the rest of the Denver regLon, whLch grew by 34% over t h e some perLod. WhL l e no other county e xceeded Douglas County' s annual rote of change of the absolute number of p ersons added to the County LS second Lowest. The overage goLn per year for Douglas County was 1 , 780 p ersons. The numberof households has also been growLn g at a ropLd rote Ln Douglas County. Households hove L ncreosed from 2 ,682 to 7 ,000 between 1970 and 1980. T h e average household sLze Ln the County LndLcotes t hat mojorLty of these new households ore fomLLLes rather than SLngle adults. T h e household sLze Ln Douglas County Ln 1980 was estLmoted at 3 .73 persons per househo l d compared to 3 . 4 1 Ln 1970. The trend Ln t h e rest of the regLo n was to s maller households WLth a decLLne Ln h ousehold SLZe from 3 .05 persons per household to 2 .64. WLth any small area showLng ropLd growth, mLgrotLon Ls the major component of change WLth natura l L ncreose (bLrths m L nus deaths) ployLng a relotLvely mLnor role. ThLs LS true Ln Douglas County where over the 1970-80 tLme fram e , 94.3% of the populotLon Lncreose was du e to net LnmLgrotLon rather t han natural Lncreose as compared to 75. 7 % for the fLve-county area. Incom e Levels Douglas County has a hLgher m e d L o n household Lncome than the fLve -county regLo n ; $17,166 compared to $ 16 ,700 Ln 1977. T h Ls L s reflected Ln the relotLvely Lower concentrotLons of households Ln the Lower Lnco m e r anges and the hLgher concentrotLons L n the upper Lncome ranges.

County households as compared to on l y 15. 12 % of aLL households Ln t h e fLve-county regLon. Per capLto Lncomes Ln Douglas County ore estLmoted to be Less than Ln the fLve-county area ($6,132 compared to $6 ,569 Ln 1977). ThLs LS partLoLLy due to the hLgher h o usehold sLzes Ln the county whLch suggest a hLgher nu mber of dependents. However, per copLto Lnco mes ore L ncreosLng at a faster rote Ln the County (31 % between 1973 end: 1977) than Ln the rerooLnder of the reg Lon (29% ) . E mployment The employment pLcture Ln Douglas County con be descrLbed from two perspectLves. One Loo k s at the number and types of jobs ovoLLobLe Ln Douglas County. The other analyzes the Labor force chorocterLstLcs of the popuLotLon LLvLng Ln the County. T h e only data ovoLLo bLe whLch descrLbes the Labor force LLvLng Ln the County comes f rom the 1 970 Census. A t that tLme , the County contoLned a Larger proportLon of professLonoL and monogerLoL occupotLons than the fLve-county regLon. Formers and for m workers mode up 10% of Douglas County's Labor force but only 1 % of the regLonoL Labor force. Areas where the County occupotLonoL proportLons were sLgnLfLcontLy Less than the other fLve countLes Lnclude soles workers and cLerLcoL workers. Unemployment Ln Douglas County was estLmated by the Colorado DLVLSLOn o f Employment and TroLnLng at 2 .4% of t h e resLdent Labor force Ln June 1979. A t the some tLm e , t h e rote for t h e eLght-county Denver-Boulder Labor Aorket Area was 4 .9%, and the State was 5 . 1 % . One reason for the Low rote LS the Lorge percentage of County resLdents who ore Ln professLonoL o r monogerLoL occupotLons (33% Ln 1970). W hLLe detoLLed choracterLstLcs of the current Labor force LLVLng Ln the County cannot be estob LLshed, the number of jobs Ln the County have been estLmoted. In 1971, som e 2 ,648 persons wor ked Ln the County occordLng to the U . S . Bureau of Labor ActLvLtLes. By 1976, 4 ,345 jobs were fLLLed Ln the County. The three Largest LndustrLoL groups were reteLL and whoLesaLe trade, the servLce Lndustry and the government sector. In 1980 Lt LS estLmoted that there were opproxLmoteLy 6 ,500 jobs Ln Douglas County. 1 7

Ji. de for Growth CASTLE ROCK PLANNING Rock's current long range planning efforts began in 1973. Data concerning Castle Roc k and its was collected and analyzed, community_ planning concepts were formulated, discussed and modified neetings and hearings were held. As a result, on 26, 1980, tile Castle Rock Planning and on April 3, 1980, the Board of Trustees took formal action adopting the following goals and j maps and plans as the Tmvn's Master Plan. Plan and manage growth in such a way as to achieve expressed community goals and objectives ly, economical, efficient, attractive and equitable a manner as possible. Jrage and accomodate new growth that benefits the area while pres erving the existing character of the community. growth trends i n such a way as to allow community services to keep pace while ining high quality. Jrage growth that expands the Castle Rock economic base in conjunct ion with building up ;idential base. Jrage growth that fills in the developable areas within the Town limits first and then the areas around the Town. steps to encourage Douglas County to develop and implement a plan aimed at not allowing urban ?velopment to take place in the Castle Rock fringe area without Town services, and therefore, il. Steps s h ould be taken to coordinate Town planning with Douglas County Pla nning efforts. Jrban service area boundary for the Town of Castle Rock is as shown on the land use plan map. this area the Town of Castle Rock ultimately plans to provide utility, police, fire and other JOvernment services to urban development when the areas are annexed to the Town, in keeping 1e phasing of the plan. Outside of this area, the Town will not provide such services. )referential Utility Service Boundary for the Town of Castle Rock is as shown on the land use 1p. Due to the established upper elevation limits of the water pressure zones, developers of Jutside this service boundary will be required to take additional measures in providing water ?. urban service area boundary will be reviewed every three to five years from the standpoint ability of the Town to provide urban services, the desires of the community for additional , the stated interests of abutting landowners and other applicable factors. I a regional sewage treatment plant is built, only areas that may be served by a gravity flow collection system, will be considered for development. When Castle Rock population exceeds the lagoon system will reac h capacity and new treatment capacity will need to be developed. Jse of solar energy and the use of energy and water conservation techniques in the plannin g, and construction of new developments is encouraged. 23

Soal -Take steps to realize Castle Rock's long range plan by formulating, adopting and util a comprehensive impler.tentation progra1:1 and strategy. es Upon adoption of the land use plan and policies, imediate steps should be taken to update the own's zoning regulations and other development regulations and requirements. All such policies, egulations and requirements should be examined to see how these can be upgraded to implement the and use and street plan. Upon adoption of the updated pla n and policies, copies should be sent to Douglas County and the enver Regional Council of Governments for inclusion as an integ ral part of the plans of those urisdictions. All future zoning approvals should be in conformance with the Town's adopted use plan and policies. In order to insure that the Town's land use and street plan reflects up to date information and h e then current desires of the residents of the community, the Town should go through a formal lan review and updating every four years, or sooner, if rapid change has occurred. 1rd of Trustees Planning Commission (At T ime o f P lan Adoptio n ) Freddie A.

VarLous solutLons to the need for more space WLLL undoubtedly be proposed at thLs future tLme . An Lmportant consLderatLon for a growLng town LS to Lnsure the downtown are an adequate amount of open green space. At the stages of desLgn thLs consLderatLon suggests a buLldLng of LLmLted S Lze that WLLL preserve as much of the open space at Courthouse Square as LS feasLble. ThLs approach would be a futLle exercLse Lf Ln the future expansLon were to be accomodated on the SLte Ln any but a costly and unconventLonal manner. Therefore, a strategy LS suggested whereby the buLldLng descrLbed Ln thLs program LS to remaLn an Lndependent and undLsturbed structure. As addLtLonaL areas are requLred they would be found Ln sateLLLte facLLLtLes proxLmate to the AdmLnLstratLon BuLldLng. RevLsed aLLocatLons of departmental space and restruc turLng of the buLldLngs composLtLon would serve as a means of deaLLng wLth growth. EventuaLLy , the BuLldLng mLght adopt a new tenant better satLsfLed by Lts facLLLtLes and the county offLces would once agaLn re-group Ln a new complex. 70
