Re-write of plans will serve as guide for County for next twenty years

SUMMIT COUNTY— Summit County, Colorado officials are seeking community input as they kick off the process of updating the 2009 Summit County Comprehensive Plan. The new plan, titled “Blueprint Summit County” will involve a rewrite of the 2009 plan and will serve as a roadmap for decisionmakers and the community on the County’s direction for the next twenty years. 

As public documents, the Comprehensive Plan and the Basin Master Plans consider quality of life issues such as community culture and history, design, public services, land use, jobs, housing, transportation, recreation, wellbeing, resiliency, and more. This update will center around a community-built vision of what the future of Summit County will be in 2040. 

“Launching the Blueprint Summit process to update the Summit County Comprehensive Plan is an incredibly important moment for our community,” said Commissioner Nina Waters. “We want and need our community to be engaged throughout this process, so that we can navigate the challenges and opportunities presented by our county's rapid growth and ensure that Summit County remains a place we all cherish and call home."

The re-writing process is expected to last 15 months with an anticipated adoption of the Comprehensive Plan by Board of County Commissioners by the end of 2024. 

Ways to get involved: 

  • Drop in for an Open House to kick-off the update at the Community & Senior Center, 83 Nancy’s Place, Frisco, on Wednesday, October 11th and share your thoughts. The Open House will have two sessions, from 9-11 am and from 6-8 pm, to accommodate our community’s schedules.
