Mayor's Message

September 2020

According to a study by AdvisorSmith, the Town of Frederick is the safest city in the State of Colorado. Using crime data published by the FBI, AdvisorSmith researched the safest cities and towns in Colorado. The study ranked 83 Colorado towns, 34 midsize cities, and 11 large cities. Frederick is ranked as the safest midsize city with 10,000 to 100,000 residents. We are not surprised but grateful to be recognized for our efforts in community policing and engagement. The actions of our Frederick Police Department are that of continued integrity, a proactive culture, and an emphasis on kindness and compassion for others. Our officers' continued integrity to protect our values supports our strong foundation of "Built On What Matters". We invite you to National Coffee with a Cop Day on Wednesday, October 7, to honor and celebrate our Frederick Police Department. 

 On Saturday, September 19, we will be hosting a modified version of our premier event, Miners Day. This event originated as a memorial celebration to honor and remember the mining heritage that created Frederick. This year, we will emphasize celebrating in unique ways by hosting smaller gatherings to enjoy food trucks, vendors at a Miners Market, burro race and virtual tours of our Miners Museum. We know you will miss the parade and the fireworks, but don't worry… we'll get these fun activities back into your lives when we can do it right. Do you have plans for New Year's Eve? Fireworks to say "bye-bye 2020"?

 The Town of Frederick continues to focus our efforts on celebrating and sharing stories of our "Built On What Matters" attitude. You will hear and see this during our Miners Day celebration, in our annual calendars (be sure to submit your photos on our website) and covering our walls at Town Hall. Find out how you can showcase your art and the beauty that is Frederick by reaching out to our Communications & Engagement Department. Frederick is the place to celebrate being YOU. We want more of that.

Town of Frederick Mayor, Tracie Crites
