The Town of Frederick will be dedicating its new entryway at the corner of Colorado Blvd and SH 52 on Thursday June 15th at 5 p.m. As part of the celebration, the Town will be burying a time capsule to be opened in 2107, at Frederick’s bicentennial celebration.

The new entryway plaza includes a monument sign welcoming residents and visitors to Frederick, a landscaped plaza where travelers on the trail can take a break, a small waterfall and shallow pool (of raw water) as well as new trail sections. This project was identified as a Board priority before the flood of 2013 but was put on hold so resources could be committed to flood repairs.

The time capsule will include a number of items from Frederick schools, the Carbon Valley Recreation District, Frederick-Firestone Fire Protection District, Carbon Valley Regional Library and the Carbon Valley Rotary as well as some resident-suggested items and other surprises from town staff. All of the items will give our future residents an idea of what life in Frederick was like in 2017 as well as a look at Frederick’s history.

Anyone who would like to attend is encouraged to either ride their bike or walk south down the Legacy Trail to the entryway plaza. Parking is available at the Wind Forest Trailhead parking lot where there will also be a shuttle provided down to the entryway.
