Frisco community development director to serve in Littleton
Frisco community development director Jocelyn Mills will step into a new position as community development director for Littleton, Colo.
“Frisco is a very special place, and I am fortunate to have been able to be part of this great community,” she said in a statement last Wednesday. “Community development and working for communities is my passion, and I have had the good fortune to work on many exciting projects over the years here in Frisco.”
Having served as community development director for 17 years, she oversaw some of the town’s largest projects, including the Peak One Master Plan, the creation of the Frisco Adventure Park in 2010 and the new Whole Foods property that opened last year.
“Every project is different, and it’s about how it fits into the community,” she said. “That’s probably the most challenging part. But, that’s also what makes it unique.”
She moved to Frisco in 1998, where she started working as a planning intern. She served as a senior planner starting in 2003, before stepping up to the role of community development director in 2011.
“I’ve worked here for a long time, and it is definitely bittersweet,” she said. “I’m going to learn, and it seems like it will be a great opportunity — but still close enough that I can come back to Frisco.”
She added that the move was going to be “an adventure on all levels.”
The town will host a going away party this Wednesday, July 15 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Frisco Bay Marina’s Island Grill. The town is still looking to fill the opening.
“There are big shoes to be filled with Jocelyn’s departure,” Frisco town manager Bill Efting said in a statement last Wednesday. “We wish her and her family the best.”
