Shape the Future of Frisco’s Climate Action Goals & Priorities

Project Introduction

In 2019, Frisco Town Council adopted the Summit Community Climate Action Plan (CAP) which has five focus areas that have led both Frisco and the community’s sustainability efforts throughout the last five years: renewable energy, building energy, transportation, waste, and forests. While these principles are still applicable, a lot has changed since 2019, and it is time to reevaluate the community’s goals and priorities and develop a plan that is more specific to Frisco. Additionally, several other sustainability and environmental plans have been developed since adoption of the Community CAP, including an EV Readiness PlanClimate Equity Plan, and Town of Frisco Energy Action Plan.

In March 2024, the Town entered into an agreement with Iconergy to develop and complete the first Frisco specific climate action plan, the Frisco Climate Action and Resiliency Plan (CARP).  A climate action and resilience plan can be leveraged as a long-range planning tool to guide town wide policy and decision-making. The Town recognizes that an updated plan, which includes strategies and goals from more recent plans while looking to the future with creative, new strategies for Frisco specifically, will better guide the Town in decision making. Also, the Town of Frisco has received a grant award from Colorado Department of Local Affairs (DOLA) to do this Frisco specific plan.

Climate Action & Resiliency Community Survey

The Town is creating the Frisco Climate Action and Resiliency Plan based on feedback from the community, best practices, and technical analysis. The first step in determining the goals and priorities for the CARP will be to gather community input through a quick survey being conducted by Iconergy. Community members will have until Tuesday, July 23, 2024 to provide feedback which will help shape the future of Frisco’s climate action plan.

What is a Climate Action & Resiliency Plan?

This Frisco specific plan based on community input will include a greenhouse gas emissions inventory and greenhouse gas modeling and will offer a Frisco-specific roadmap that will serve as a guide for Frisco for the next five years, building upon the 2019 Summit Community Climate Action Plan.
