The Planning division processes and reviews everything from sign and banner permits, to deck and hot tub additions, to large scale, multi-family and commercial developments. Planners work closely with the Building Division from the beginning of projects to completion to ensure it meets the Town’s zoning and safety requirements. Planners also serve the Planning Commission in an advisory role for projects and various other Planning Division activities.

The Town of Frisco, Colorado Planning division is part of the Community Development department and works closely with the Building Division on all levels of construction, small to large. Projects must go through Planning and Building Division review and approval.

Planning Studies & Information

2019 Frisco Community Plan 

In the summer of 2018, the Town of Frisco launched a comprehensive process with the community to update the Town’s Master Plan, also known as the “Frisco Community Plan.” The Community Plan serves as the overarching policy document for the Town. The plan articulates the shared vision and values of the community and identifies strategic actions necessary for implementation. The plan was last updated in 2011 and is required by the Town Charter to be updated every five years.

2015 Land Use Profile

The 2015 Land Use Profile correlates closely with several of the quality of life direction statements from the 2011 Frisco Community Plan. This study assists the Frisco community, Town Council, Planning Commission, and staff with understanding future development. It also assists the Town in making informed decisions to ensure the appropriate levels of services are in place for the future while considering the impact of changing demographics and economic trends.

Three Mile Plan

The Town of Frisco’s Three Mile Plan provides information and analysis for areas within Frisco’s three-mile boundary.
