The Town of Frisco Wins a 2010 APA Colorado Excellence Award for Peak One Project!
Frisco, Colorado – July 28, 2010 – The Town of Frisco has been awarded a 2010 Excellence Award in the Category of Outstanding Planning Project for the “Town of Frisco Peak One Parcel: Vision to Neighborhood” project, from the Colorado Chapter of the American Planning Association. The Peak One project was selected due to its positive effect on the community and for its “start to finish” planning. It also was acknowledged for coming to fruition through the public process, and for the visionary leadership of the Town Council.
The master planning process for the Peak One Parcel began in 2007 and was finalized in 2008; it was a collaborative public process that involved over 200 citizens, residents and business owners. In August, 2009, the Town of Frisco entered into a partnership with Ten Mile Partners, LLC, for the development of the Peak One Neighborhood. The project will result in a year-round residential neighborhood of 70 homes owned by local working professionals and their families. Construction of the neighborhood began earlier this summer.
The Town of Frisco will receive the Excellence Award during the APA Colorado’s Annual Conference in Steamboat Springs in October. The APA (American Planning Association) is a non-profit organization that focuses on providing leadership, education and support for community planning. Through state chapters, the organization has been facilitating community development across the United States since 1978.
