The Castle Rock Town Council on Tuesday is expected to set a date for the mayor's recall election.

Mayor Paul Donahue is facing a recall over growth concerns.

A group called Castle Rock Citizens' for Responsible Development is concerned about the increase in new developments.

Donahue says the town has a plan to properly manage growth for years to come.

Castle Rock Citizens' for Responsible Development filed a petition at the end of March to have the mayor and two elected officials removed from their positions.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m.  A public hearing is scheduled for 7:45 p.m.

Donahue will continue to serve in office during the recall process. His term will expire in November 2016.
