The town of Frisco is seeking residents interested in serving as a planning commissioner, according to a news release.

The Frisco Planning Commission is a seven-member board appointed by the town council. Due to the recent departure of Planning Commissioner Patrick Gleason, who is moving away from Summit County, there is a vacancy, the release states.

The term for the planning commissioner who fills the vacancy will run through April 2026, according to the news release. Meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of each month at 5 p.m. and candidates should be prepared to attend these meetings, the news release states.

Planning commissioners review development applications, participate in long-range planning and make land-use recommendations to the Frisco Town Council. While planning commission positions are unpaid, commissioners have access to free tubing passes, a Nordic Center season pass, Frisco Bay Marina perks and early bird access to youth program and camp reservations, according to the news release.

Planning commissioners must live in the town of Frisco. No special knowledge of construction, architecture or planning is required, but candidates should possess a strong interest in the community and a willingness to learn, the release states.

Candidate application forms are available on in the news section. Candidates may also pick up an application at Frisco Town Hall by appointment. Please email Cheryl Mattka, permit technician, at or call 970-668-2576 to make an appointment.
