What is a Community Plan?

A Community Plan is a long range planning tool that communities use to make proactive decisions about what their future will look like. It’s a guiding document that decision makers can use to create public policy and direct capital improvements. This plan will establish a framework that will be used to develop policies, regulations, and priorities for ensuring that Frisco’s future is consistent with our community’s vision and values.

 

Why are we updating this plan?

The Town’s last Community Plan was developed and adopted in 2011. Frisco has seen a lot of changes in the past 7 years; major new retail developments, new workforce housing including the Peak One Neighborhood’s 69 homes, and large, mixed use developments in our Main Street and Central Core areas. Frisco is changing and it’s a great time to check in and find out what values resonate with our current citizens. For more information check out the 2011 Frisco Community Plan and the 2015 Frisco community survey results.

Why should people care about this? 

By being engaged and participating in this process people are really helping to shape Frisco’s Future. We are looking to the citizens to provide input on challenges and opportunities they feel are important and what they would like the future Frisco to look and feel like. Community input is vital to this process and citizens will have many opportunities to provide input.

An update from the Kickoff held on Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Around 250 people attended the Kickoff event on Wednesday, July 11, 2018. The event was held at the Frisco Day Lodge at 621 Recreation Way, Frisco, Colorado. The purpose of the event was to gain insight from community members as to what they value about Frisco today and what they feel are the challenges and opportunities that we should focus on for our future. Attendees were invited to circulate among six different stations designed to educate and evoke meaningful thought about community values as well as opportunities and concerns for our future.

The stations were:

  • Frisco Thinks – Town officials often hear that people love Frisco’s small mountain town character but what does that really mean? A word cloud exercise was set up using laptops and an overhead monitor so participants could share three words they would use to describe “small mountain town character.”  You can see the pattern that emerged. wordcloud art2

  • Frisco Plans – The Frisco Plans station had information regarding the importance of a Community Plan as well as the process and opportunities for engagement.
  • Frisco Engages – Keypad polling was used to host a facilitated survey with small groups of attendees.  The goal of the station was to gain insight on common themes, challenges, and opportunities facing Frisco to better inform the themes of our plan.  If you were not able to attend the meeting and take the survey in person, a link to an online version can be found here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YYB9RJK

  • Frisco Designs – Giant aerial and street view maps of town corridors were used as props for a dialogue with participants on areas of opportunities, for growth, density, change, and preservation.

  • Frisco Speaks – This giant chalkboard encouraged participants to share their hope for Frisco’s future. This piece was inspired by artist Candy Chang’s participatory community planning installation. It was designed to encourage participants to express their vision for Frisco’s future.

  • Frisco Feels – The theme of this station was “Why I love Frisco”. Understanding what people love about our town helps us to understand our common community values.

If you would like to view the boards, fill out a postcard, or write your vision on the chalkboard, the exhibits are currently displayed in the lobby of Town Hall, located at 1 Main Street, Frisco, Colorado.
