Economic Development

Frederick is located on Colorado’s beautiful Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The town's boundaries include area both east and west of Interstate 25, south of State Highway 119 and along State Highway 52. Since 2000 the community has grown more than 350% to a population of over 11,000 residents. They enjoy the town’s central location, which allows easy access to the Denver and northern metropolitan areas. Our community is becoming one of the premier destinations in the northern Front Range when residential and community amenity investments are considered. Frederick is aggressively pursuing more restaurants, retail options and services to meet the immediate needs of our residents in creating a cohesive community. A diverse commercial base of industrial primary employers and health care facilities strategically position Frederick for any new businesses’ success.
