In terms of commercial and residential growth, Frisco is unmatched by any community of its size in Colorado. Numerous restaurants, shops and hotels have opened in just the last few years. Literally hundreds of new residential units have been constructed, and property values have skyrocketed by nearly 100% since 1990.
Opportunity beckons for any business operator who wants Interstate access, steady tourist influx, well-educated and motivated workers, a first-class infrastructure and a growing residential base. Frisco is home to over 50 restaurants including over five coffee shops. In addition, Frisco offers two co-working spaces, EVO3 and Elevate Co-Space, and great media access, including the mountain bureau for Denver’s CBS television affiliate, the county’s only daily newspaper and the county’s oldest weekly newspaper. Frisco is also “connected” with easy access to Internet providers and fiber optics to Grand Junction and Denver. Explore all the thriving businesses in Frisco on the business directory.
Mountain communities, like Frisco, are great places to visit, and their popularity as vacation destinations commonly results in a shortage of affordable workforce housing because of the prevalence of vacation homes and vacation rentals and the lack of inventory inherent in a community with limited buildable land. Couple this with a tourism based economy, which primarily produces lower paying service jobs, and you have a challenge housing the local workforce. The 2016 Summit County Workforce Housing Demand Update is an excellent resource for understanding the breadth and depth of this challenge.
Frisco Town Council has identified affordable workforce housing as one of their top three priorities, and is working on a comprehensive housing plan, which incorporates multiple strategies to insure employees are able to live where they work.
Job opportunities are overwhelming, especially in the thriving lodging, tourism, retail and restaurant communities. Check out the latest Frisco and Summit County news, as well as job and other housing opportunities, in the Summit Daily News. You can also check out weather in the Frisco area.
The town government has taken advantage of the outstanding tourist economy to invest in numerous improvements, including adding pathways, underground powerlines, increasing police patrol personnel, installing athletic fields and a disk golf course at the Peninsula Recreation Area and moving the Lund House, a local historic home, as a permanent office and retail space at the Frisco Bay Marina. And our well-equipped local fire department allows the town an excellent fire rating.
Parks, schools, playgrounds, libraries, the Frisco Historic Park & Museum, the Frisco Adventure Park, the Frisco Bay Marina, the Frisco Nordic Ski Center, health-care facilities and shopping are all within easy access, often by foot. Events like Frisco’s Fantastic Fourth of July, Frisco Gold Rush ski race, Summer Concert Series and the Colorado Barbecue Challenge combine beautiful mountain scenery and small-town atmosphere to create authentic events which speak to the uniqueness of mountain life. With plenty of outdoor restaurant patios, walking paths, parks and poo bag receptacles through out town Frisco is also a very dog friendly town.
Frisco is just one hour west of Denver and 95 minutes from Denver International Airport. Central to eight world-class ski areas, a spectacular recreational path system and along the shores of beautiful Dillon Reservoir, Frisco is at the epicenter of Summit County. It’s no wonder the headquarters for the Summit County School District, Colorado Department of Transportation, free Summit Stage bus system, Summit County Library, Colorado State Patrol and Summit County Seniors are all located here.
