Frisco wins grant for community survey

FRISCO – Frisco was awarded a $2,500 grant from the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments (NWCCOG) to conduct a community survey to be used in updating the 1999 Frisco Master Plan.

The town’s charter calls for a master plan update every five years. The new survey, to be conducted by NWCCOG, will gather homeowner, renter, second homeowner and business opinions on issues facing Frisco, including town priorities, growth and economic development.

According to town community development director Amy Ito, “The goal of the 2003 Community Survey is to benchmark change since 2000 and to maintain the town’s quality of life as Frisco continues to plan for its long-term future.”
