SE Group worked with the Town of Frisco on their Trails Master Plan during 2016 and 2017. This project identified trails and connectivity enhancements that: improve recreation opportunities surrounding Frisco, ease access directly from town, and increase safety for pedestrians and bicyclists. It addressed both summer and winter uses—exploring innovative ideas for integrating fat biking and long-distance Nordic skiing routes into Summit County. The plan stressed the importance of partnerships with the Forest Service and local not-for-profit groups to help maintain existing trails and build political and financial support for additional trail projects in the future.
The recommendations in this plan were vetted by the public through a community engagement process that involved well-attended open houses, an active Citizen’s Committee, multiple small group and one-on-one interviews, and an online interactive map. The Frisco Trails Master Plan is strategic in nature and designed to help the town identify both short-term and long-term projects that will enhance the recreation options, safety, and connectivity of the Frisco community. The plan was Adopted in March 2017.
