Community Programs

The Town of Frederick offers many community programs to connect and strengthen relationships with the residents of Frederick.

Featured Program: Lawn Replacement Program

We’ve teamed up with Resource Central to offer residents up to $1,000 in discounted low-water plants and lawn removal services to Town of Frederick water customers. The Lawn Replacement Program offers a mix-and-match solution for upgrading to a water-wise yard. Save water and money, reduce lawn maintenance, and create a colorful habitat. It’s easy! Just agree to remove at least 200 square feet of your lawn through the program and replace it with water-wise gardens, permeable green landscaping, or other water-efficient plant material.

Calendar Photo Contest

Holiday Tree Recycling

Remember to dispose of your holiday tree properly when it is time to put the decorations away. Starting Monday, December 18, 2023, through Wednesday, January 31, 2024, you can drop off your tree in the fenced area on the southeast corner of Eighth Street and Maple Avenue near the entrance to Centennial Park (630 8th Street). Please place trees behind the secured area and do not drop off trees on the sidewalk or outside the fence. Live trees only, please! Remove all plastic bags, tree stands, decorations, and lights. The Town of Frederick Public Works team will use a wood chipper onsite to recycle all trees. 

Community Grant Program

The Town can provide both direct financial support from its Oil Royalty Trust Fund and some kinds of in-kind support (i.e., police, Public Works assistance, etc.) to which a monetary value is assigned. The Town Board of Trustees award grants based on the applicant meeting the basic requirements of the application and the merits of the project, as described in the form. The Town wishes to provide assistance for programs, events or projects that contribute to the positive image of the Town of Frederick and provide opportunities for informal education, community building and family entertainment.

The Town strongly encourages applicants to speak with the Town Clerk, who processes the applications for the Board, before completing and submitting an application. The Town Clerk can answer questions and help ensure the application is appropriate for Board review and complete.
