Frisco looks for Main Street redesign input


FRISCO – Wider sidewalks, trees and even a bike lane could be in the works for Frisco’s Main Street in 2011.

Town officials said infrastructure along the thoroughfare is aging and they want community input on how to update Frisco’s main drag. One of the first steps is a community open house set for Nov. 9, 4-8 p.m. at the historic log chapel at Second and Main.

“We want to know how the community sees Main Street looking like in the future ,” said community development director Mark Gage. “Do you want larger sidewalks, a bike lane, tree landscaping or something else? Whatever your vision is, we want to hear about it.”

After gathering public input, planners will draft up a preferred site alternative to present to the community at a subsequent open house. A final preferred site alternative will then be presented to town council. Staff aims to present the final plan to council for approval in January.

Main Street was deeded to the town by CDOT in 1981 and improvements were made in 1982. Once a final plan is created and construction drawings are completed, staff anticipates starting the improvements in 2011.
