Facility Master Planning
Facilities Planning for the Future
Our commitment to enhancing our town's infrastructure aligns with the directives outlined in the multi-year Strategic Plan 2022-2023 and prior 2021-2022. The Board has emphasized the need for facilities master planning and substantial improvements in services like asphalt patching and snow and ice control.
In 2021, the Town established a Facilities Department in support of a Facilities Master Plan. In 2022, to comprehensively address facility challenges , the Town teamed up with the Department of Local Affairs (DOLA), and the University of Colorado Technical Assistance Program to conduct a detailed needs analysis, known as the Facilities Planning Study. Building upon this study, an in-depth Feasibility Study was conducted by Stantec Architecture Inc. to determine the space requirements, and site criteria for a Public Works facility that can serve our town effectively for the next 50 years.
This extensive study involved the evaluation of six potential sites, with our existing Public Works site being just one of them. This process included 40-50 data point criteria in the following general categories: Environmental constraints, space to expand, Real Estate market conditions, and infrastructure. We want to stress that the Board has been an integral part of this process every step of the way.
Moving Forward - We are Making Progress!
Agilent Technologies approached the Town of Frederick regarding the Town's interest in 7400 Eagle Blvd. After multiple facets were addressed an agreement proposal between the Town of Frederick and Agilent for an Exchange of Property was considered by the Board of Trustees on Oct. 10, 2023. The Board requested a future meeting scheduled for Oct. 17, 2023, in which Ordinance No. 1388, titled "An Ordinance of the Town of Frederick approving an Agreement for an Exchange of Property between the Town of Frederick and Agilent Technologies, Inc." was passed.
While specific timeframes have yet to be solidified, we will continue to provide updates as we make further progress on this project. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to us.
