Mayor’s Welcome

Welcome to Frisco; whether you are a long-time local or a visitor, I look forward to seeing you around town. I ran for Frisco Town Council in 2016 because Frisco’s unique character and exceptional quality of life are worth preserving and deepening. Since 2016, I have been part of a Council that tackled projects and initiatives focused on finding the harmony between residents’ quality of life and a thriving economy that benefits from positive visitor experiences. Some of our most impactful projects and initiatives included the “Big Dig” at the Frisco Bay Marina, trail and park improvements, workforce housing programs and projects, fire mitigation and resiliency planning, infrastructure improvements, sustainability and climate change initiatives, building code changes, and childcare programs. The current Council will need to continue to focus resources on many of these same projects and initiatives as they acknowledge and address needs in our community that are ongoing and complex.

I have worked in the fire service for over two decades, first at West Metro Fire Rescue and now at Summit Fire and EMS. I bring that unique perspective and leadership experience to my role as Mayor here in Frisco. I know that growth will continue in Frisco and the surrounding areas. I am committed to leading in a way that anticipates and plans for change so that our community’s character and quality of life are respected. As Frisco Mayor, I will be a strong steward of our community and lead with a forward-thinking mindset.

I need your assistance as we look to the future, and I urge our residents and businesses to not just stay engaged, but to actively participate in shaping the future of our town. Your ideas and concerns are invaluable to us, and we are here to listen and act upon them. It takes all of us, working together, to keep Frisco the best mountain town in the Colorado Rockies.

Thank you,

Mayor Rick Ihnken
