Planning Commission Meeting on potential changes to Mixed Use and Central Core Zoning Rules
Zoning codes are land use planning tools, adopted by communities, to regulate location of uses and the physical form of development, such as building height and building design. Zoning regulations aim to promote and preserve the “character” of the community through the built environment.

In the past couple of months, during their public worksessions, Planning Commission and Town Council have discussed potential updates to the zone districts for downtown and West Main Street. Topics include number of residential units allowed, mass and bulk of new development, and uses permitted. As a result, updates to the Central Core Zone District (Main Street to the north and south half of Granite and Galena Streets) and Mixed Use Zone District (primarily along West Main Street) are proposed, including: changes to setbacks, changes to permitted uses, and changes to the design guidelines in the Main Street and Granite/Galena Street overlay districts.
A comprehensive update of the Town of Frisco’s zoning codes last occurred in the early 1980’s. Throughout the remainder of 2013 and 2014, the Town will be hosting community input sessions to review and consider updates to the community’s zoning codes. All updates will be presented to the Frisco Planning Commission and Town Council for formal consideration and adoption.
Frisco Community Plan direction/vision for the Update: Frisco is a community that encourages land uses and architectural styles to fit its mountain town identity, and strives for development with sustainable design, materials and practices.
