During the 2015 Town of Frisco Community Survey, 62% of respondents indicated that recreational amenities were the reason they lived in Frisco. Obviously, trails are a big part of the recreational amenities available in and around Frisco, and this is a major reason why the Town of Frisco is embarked on a trails master planning process. The Frisco Trails Master Plan Project (FTMP) created a comprehensive trails plan for Frisco and the surrounding area ensuring the strategic implementation trail development and improvements to achieve the community’s vision for trails, community connectivity and recreation corridors. This plan includes both hard surface (think Recreation Path) and soft surface (think dirt trails) trails.
In March, 2016, the Town of Frisco received a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant to help fund the Frisco Trails Master Plan. The plan identifies and maps current and future trails and serves as a guiding document for future trail development and improvements. It includes a specific and prioritized implementation framework for the Town and partners to use over time. The Town of Frisco hired a local consulting team, SE Group, to help with this plan. SE Group provides “strategy, planning, design and permitting consulting services focused on unique places that support outdoor recreation, rural and small town lifestyles and tourism.”
Overall, it is the Town of Frisco’s vision that the Frisco Trails Master Plan will position the Town’s partners to manage these resources in such a way that the trail system can grow and be managed to the highest level of economic, social, and environmental sustainability for future generations to come.
The November 10, 2016 Trails Master Plan Community Conversation had over 100 participants. If you missed the community conversation please click here on the Trails Master Plan Presentation.
The Town of Frisco thanks everyone who participated in the planning processes for the Frisco Trails Master Plan. We are pleased to announce that Town Council adopted the Trails Master Plan. This document was created thanks to community input, the citizen’s advisory committee, stakeholder interviews, SE Group and the Town of Frisco, as well as support from Summit County Open Space and Trails and the United States Forest Service.
