National Economic Development Week 2022 is May 9 through May 13. To celebrate, we joined up with the Economic Development Council of Colorado (EDCC) and Upstate Colorado to showcase our vibrant community.
We have created a five-part video series explaining Frederick's Economic Development focus. Each day, we will release an informative video on our social media channels (Facebook and Twitter), capturing the day's theme. The video series is available now on our YouTube channel.

Throughout the last several years, the Town of Frederick has experienced significant growth.

Frederick is a community that fosters economic, recreational, cultural, and environmental vitality and builds upon and enhances various economic opportunities.
