Chapter 8 of the Municipal Code regulates storage of recreational vehicles on private property. It states:
(1) As the owner or operator of any recreational vehicle or utility trailer, it is unlawful to park any such vehicle on any public right-of-way, including any street, alley or public parking lot, except during the loading or unloading of such vehicle when such loading or unloading is completed within seventy-two (72) hours of such parking. A recreational vehicle may be parked in a public parking lot or private parking lot when such parking is in conjunction with personal or official business at the location of the parking, but in no event shall such parking extend longer than twenty-four (24) hours. The owner or operator of a recreational vehicle parked for longer than twenty-four (24) hours in a public parking lot or private parking lot may be charged with such violation upon complaint of the property owner or when the interest of public health safety and/or welfare dictate the necessity of charging such violation.
(2) An owner or occupant of private property may park or store on such property one (1) recreational vehicle and one (1) utility trailer that he or she owns. Unless parked or stored in an approved structure, such vehicle and trailer may be parked or stored in the backyard of the property, screened from view from adjacent properties and public rights-of-way. One (1) such vehicle may be parked in the driveway of the property. No recreational vehicle or utility trailer may be parked in such a manner as to create a traffic hazard or block passage on the sidewalk or other right-of-way.
(3) No person shall use any recreational vehicle or utility trailer for storage.
(4) No person shall use any recreational vehicle or utility trailer for the operation of a business or residence, while stored or parked.

If you would like to ride in a hot air balloon and support our pilots, you can become a Frederick in Flight Sponsor!
Ideal weather for hot air balloon flight consists of clear skies with good visibility, light winds on the surface, and moderate winds aloft (less than 25 knots at 9,000 ft above sea level). Pilots also look for good wind direction, generally winds out of the west, no cold front activity in the area, no precipitation in the forecast, and no forecast of developing windy conditions through the morning hours. Moderate temperatures also play a role as very hot temperatures affect balloon performance and safety.
Being a balloon-friendly property means allowing hot air balloons to land on your land. How will hot air balloons know that you're a balloon-friendly property? Here are a few criteria to consider:
Safe landing area parameters for landowners who would like balloons landing on their property:
Thank you for considering making your property available for hot air balloon landings. If balloons land on your property, we hope you come out and introduce yourselves to the pilots and crews.
Frederick has four parks that have pavilions you can reserve. These include Frederick Recreation Area's Big Fred and Little Freddie, Centennial Park, Crist Park and Bulrush Wetland Park. To reserve, please visit our
The current Open Space sales tax is limited to the purchase, improvement, and maintenance to open space and trails. As the definitions of open space versus parks continues to blur, we are taking a proactive, transparent approach and reevaluating both our current and future needs to ensure current tax revenues are responsibly invested in the future.
The Parks, Open Space and Trails Commission advises the Board of Trustees and Town Staff on all matters pertaining to parks, open space and trails. It consists of seven members, all of whom must be bona fide residents of the Town. The Board of Trustees makes the appointment of seven members to staggered four-year terms.
The Town created a dedicated Parks and Open Space Department in 2022 and under direction from the Board of Trustees, they are taking a holistic approach to the long-term maintenance, expansion, and improvement of all outdoor recreation resources. By reducing limitations on the Open Space sales tax, Town staff could implement improvements outlined in community-driven planning initiatives, such as the Parks, Open Space and Trails Master Plan, as they are prioritized by the Community, not by what specific funds are available. Those plans call for continued expansions to the Town’s trails system as one of the highest priorities.
No. The Town is not considering raising the Open Space sales tax from its current rate of 0.5%. The Town is only considering modifying the potential use of revenues to include all parks, open space and trails.
Yes. The Town is proposing to limit the revenues to be expended on maintenance, expansion and improvements to the parks, open space, and trails system. However, since trails are a critical transportation function, the funds may be utilized to create multi-modal trails along street corridors, such as the trail along Colorado Boulevard.
You can find information on our page development applications under review . You can also look at the Town calendar so see any upcoming neighborhood and board meetings. If you’d like additional information, contact the Planning Department.
Yes Please! We love trees in Frederick. We encourage you to plant more than the minimum required. The Town of Frederick requires a tree near the street and one in the front yard. After move in, the tree near the street is the homeowner’s responsibility. So, replant those trees. They reduce the impacts of weather (sun and wind) on your home. And who, who doesn’t love playing in the leaves?
Section 2.14 of the Land Use Code says, there shall be no less than one (1) tree in addition to the minimum required street tree within the front yard unless otherwise approved by the Town. All corner lots adjacent to a street or alley shall provide a side yard tree in addition to the required street tree, unless otherwise approved by the Town.
Need to replant a tree, check out the Frederick tree sale! Starting February 1, a variety of trees will be available for purchase, on a first come first serve basis, and can be picked up just in time for Arbor Day in April.
Setbacks vary depending on your zoning classification. You may determine your property’s zoning district by searching for your property address on the Town’s interactive mapping site. If you have additional questions about how to determine what your zoning is, please contact the Planning Department. View the Frederick Property Search Map. Once you know your zoning, see Section 3.5 of Land Use Code Article 3 to find your setback requirements. View the 3.5 Density and Dimensional Standards.
Please call the Planning Department and request the zoning verification letter. There is a $75 fee for the letter and Planning Staff will need your name with correct spelling and your address. The letter can be left at the front desk for you to pick up or sent to you.
(a) Medical, dental and real estate offices are not permitted as home occupations.
(b) In addition to the family occupying the dwelling containing the home occupation, there shall not be more than one (1) outside employee in the home occupation.
(c) The employee and clients may park in on-street curbside parking spaces.
(d) The home occupation shall not exceed one thousand (1,000) square feet or thirty percent (30%) of the total square footage of the dwelling, whichever is less, or can be located in an accessory building not to exceed five hundred (500) square feet.
(e) No exterior aspects of the home occupation operation shall disrupt the residential character of the area. The maximum number of clients which may visit the home occupation per day is ten (10).
Accessory dwelling units are generally permitted; however, the size is limited based on your zoning district. You may determine your property’s zoning district by searching for your property address on the Town’s interactive mapping site. If you have additional questions about how to determine what your zoning is, please contact the Planning Department. Once you know what your zoning is, you can use the following regulations to determine how large your second dwelling unit can be.

During business hours, contact Public Works Operations at (720)382-5800.
Call the town's Public Works Department, 720-382-5800. The Public Works Department will contact a line maintenance technician to determine if the leak source is within the homeowner’s system or is the responsibility of the town.
Cracks form in asphalt pavement through due to distress and are sealed to help protect the pavement structure. Unsealed cracks allow water to penetrate the pavement surface, which can eventually cause potholes and further deterioration.
Slurry seal is a mixture of an asphaltic oil emulsion and coarse, sandy aggregate (1/4” to 3/8” in size) applied in a single thin layer to the entire street surface.
Streets look new with slurry seals, and it helps protect the surface from moisture, contaminants, and oxidation. In addition, slurry seal application provides a new cover with improved skid resistance while extending the life of the roadway.
Groundbreaking is anticipated in late 2023, with anticipated completion in 2025. There is preliminary interest in pad sites, which can be built while the anchor is being built.
There are several pad sites available as well as in-line tenant space opportunities. The status of for lease vs. for sale is subject to negotiation with the applicant developing the site and leasing brokers.
Depends on pad, category or use, and spaces. The brokerage group doing the leasing is Crosbie Real Estate Group. They can provide additional information on site or pad specific questions regarding sales or leasing.
There will be one fueling center associated with King Soopers. This will be in addition to the existing Circle K which is located at the northeast corner of Hwy 52 and William Bailey . The proposed fueling center is proposed to be located along Colorado Blvd.
Pending Town approval. This along with all traffic improvements will be reviewed as part of the development review process. Improvements will be based on approved traffic impact studies and approved master plans.
The anchor user will have some restrictions on users that would be viewed as competition (i.e. Target or a similar competitor wouldn’t be allowed to locate on the site). Other use restrictions are per the Land Use Code and Planned Unit Development (PUD) overlay. Additional land use restrictions are included as a condition of assistance from the Frederick Urban Renewal Authority. Those restrictions include limitations on smoke/pipe shops, used goods for resale, outdoor storage (not associated with outdoor displays), new or used automotive sales and no more than one automotive wash facilities. As a matter of practice, uses like automotive service shops (i.e. Grease Monkey, Firestone Auto etc.) are only allowed to perform work inside enclosed bays and not outdoors.
Minutes are not kept during neighborhood meetings.
Architectural standards and design will adhere to Town development standards and adopted building codes. Specific construction types and methodologies will be driven by the end user. Buildings are required to have consistent architectural materials and material pallets throughout.
The goal of a neighborhood center like this is to find ways to activate it morning, noon and evening. This includes ideally providing a variety of dining opportunities that cater to those needs. This approach includes quick service options, fast casual options and opportunities for sit-down options.
Crosbie Real Estate Group is managing the leasing efforts for this project. Their website is https://www.creginc.com/property/silverstone-marketplace/ and includes information on how to get in contact with the brokers.
Yes. Per Town ordinance, it shall be unlawful for any owner or occupant of any lot, block or parcel of ground within the Town, or for any agent in charge of such property, to allow any snow or ice to accumulate or remain upon any sidewalk alongside such property longer than twenty-four (24) hours from the time of the last accretion of such snow and ice.
The street next to your street is most likely a Tier 1 or Tier 2 route. Residential streets (Tier 3) are only plowed after snowstorms that produce over eight inches of snow within one 24-hour period. Check out our Snow & Ice Control Map for more information.
Plows are designed to push snow to the side. As a result, some snow is inevitably deposited at the end of driveways and onto sidewalks. Drivers plow at low speeds (10 to 15 MPH) to minimize this issue, but the problem becomes more challenging with greater snow accumulations. The Town will not plow "curb to curb". Instead, plows will make one path down the center of the road to help avoid snow being pushed into driveway and sidewalk areas.
Per Town ordinance, you will have 24 hours after the storm ends to shovel your walks.
Unfortunately, no. With 102 center line lane miles of road in Frederick, public works crews must stay focused on opening streets for emergency vehicles. It would be extremely costly to the taxpayer for our crews to remove snow from driveways. Keep in mind that crews do not place snow intentionally in your driveways, it is just a result of the way the plow is built. The Town recommends plowing your driveways and sidewalks after Town crews are done, and the new ordinance allows for this by giving you 48 hours after a storm to shovel.
No, the Town does not plow alleys. Residents are asked to work with neighbors and contract with a private plow operator to keep alleys free of snow. Private operators need to keep in mind that snow cannot be piled on public right of ways. The Town also does not reopen access to alleys that may have snow deposited from Town plowing efforts.
Plow trucks distribute ice slicer granules early during a snow event rather than plowing snow.
Town staff determines when the downtown snow is hauled away based on the volume of snow on the ground, as that affects the main goal of keeping the emergency routes clear. This will be done early in the morning while traffic is low for safety purposes, as well as to keep interference with local business operations minimal.
Private business parking areas are not maintained by the Town.
The Town of Frederick is a growing community that prioritizes economic vitality by bringing in businesses that enhance the quality of life in Frederick. The Silverstone Marketplace shopping center, being developed at the northwest corner of Colorado Blvd. and Hwy 52, will be the anchor for a new King Soopers Marketplace while providing approximately 75,000 square feet of retail, restaurant, and commercial space. We work to deliberately manage our growth in a responsible fashion based on community feedback.
Since 2010, the Town of Frederick has had an annual property tax called a Mill Levy, which has remained at a rate of 6.555 mills. One mill is equivalent to one dollar per $1,000 dollars of assessed value. Therefore, Frederick’s applied tax rate is $6.55 for every $1,000 of assessed property value. This rate was determined based on the original tax calculation when the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) was established on November 4, 1992. According to TABOR, any new tax, increase in tax rate, or higher mill levy compared to the previous year must be approved by the voters in advance. This ensures that any changes in taxes directly benefiting the local government must be supported by the community.
To give you an example, the City of Dacono currently has a mill levy rate of 25.099. This may be because they received approval from voters for higher mill levy overrides or debt issuance, which are paid back through increased taxes. Among other taxing entities in Weld County, the Town of Frederick actually has one of the lowest mill levy rates.
With completion of the Town’s first Transportation Master Plan (TMP) in 2021 one of the key short-term strategies to address transportation needs of the growing community were recommendations focused on improved intersection operations and added capacity at priority corridors. These projects include the installation of additional auxiliary turn lanes and new traffic signals to increase intersection capacity and operation efficiency to help reduce congestion. Additionally, ADA curb ramps, sidewalk connections and pedestrian crossing controls for increased multimodal public safety and improved drainage infrastructure are incorporated. An example of this effort can be seen at the intersection of Colorado Blvd and Tipple Pkwy and the Town Engineering Department is in process of several other intersection improvement projects.
See the Transportation Master Plan
The Town of Frederick currently maintains more than 108 centerline miles of public streets. To manage this system, the Town Engineering Department uses a Pavement Management System to assist in evaluating the pavement condition, serviceable life and maintenance strategies for Town owned roads and alleyways. A Pavement Management System is a set of tools that includes software and engineering judgment to budget for and plan maintenance and rehabilitation projects to help minimize costs while improving overall pavement conditions. Elements of the Town’s Pavement Management System includes inventory, condition data, maps, software, and engineering judgment. Through the evaluation maintenance and rehabilitation projects of Town streets are organized yearly under the Pavement Maintenance Program. The methods used in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation include crack seal, chip seal, slurry seal, asphalt mill and overlays, roadway reconstruction, street concrete replacement (curb, gutter, cross-pans), and accessible ramp replacement as required. Both Frederick Public Works personnel and contractors participate in the application of the treatment methods. Current project locations as well as project history and future project planning can be found on our Pavement Maintenance Program map.
The Frederick Speed Management Program (FSMP) has been developed by the Town with the intent of reducing the negative effects of speeding traffic on neighborhood streets. The resident-initiated speed awareness program is aimed at addressing the issue by applying a combined approach of engaging the community, education, enforcement, and engineering traffic mitigation improvements. The FSMP helps to achieve the Town of Frederick’s Transportation Master Plan which prioritizes continuous improvements in safety and comfort for all modes of travel. If there are areas of speeding concerns, please visit our Speed Management Program page to learn how to become involved and for additional information.
The Town recently completed an update of the Parks, Open Space and Trails Master Plan which prioritizes major trail corridors both along arterial roadways and off-street trails and gives the Town the ability to require new developments to construct the trails as a part of their public improvements, to help make new development pay their own way. The Town’s Engineering Department recently completed a Transportation Master Plan which also identifies POST Master Plan projects and calls for trail installation along roads as they are developed in new areas or when existing roadways are considerably upgraded. Constructing trails along existing roads and within existing Right-of-Way can be difficult, because in most cases there is not enough room to construct a trail or when the road is upgraded, the trails would have to be removed or substantially altered. The Town’s Parks and Open Space Department is working on an internal action plan to identify and prioritize off-street trail segments, within the priority corridors, for new construction and for connecting existing missing segments, which should be complete in 2023.
Frederick takes part in the Nelson Family Community Garden!

The Board seeks to address some of the community’s most pressing transportation-related challenges, including traffic congestion, snow removal, pothole maintenance, and multimodal transportation options. Funds from a sales tax would be used to make a variety of improvements, including:
There are many anticipated benefits, including:
The proposed intersection upgrades would include:
Yes. This project is an excellent example of how intersections throughout Frederick would be upgraded to reduce traffic congestion and improve commuter and pedestrian safety.
Improvements would first be made to the highest-priority intersection projects, located at:
Additional intersections throughout Frederick would be addressed as funds from the proposed sales tax become available. There are more than 25 intersections in need of upgrades.
During times of heavy snowfall, road closures often occur because the Town does not have the resources to effectively clear the snow. Adding personnel and equipment would improve the Town’s snow removal capabilities, helping keep the roads open and safer to drive on.
To better address snow control in Frederick, especially during heavy snowfall, the Town proposes adding key snow control equipment, including a tandem snowplow, a 1-ton plow truck, a single-axle dump truck, a small loader, a plow blade for the larger loader, skid-steer front-end snow box and track attachments, and a street sweeper for the clean-up of abrasives after snow events.
Frederick currently outsources its pothole repair work, primarily during the summer months. This means potholes are not filled as rapidly or as often as needed. With voter-approved funding, equipment and personnel would be added to bring pothole maintenance in-house. This would enable quicker, more efficient year-round fixes. Funds would also be used to purchase the equipment and hot mix asphalt needed for timely regular maintenance.
Three new Public Works Street Department employees would be phased in to help make improvements, including pothole maintenance, snow control, and other duties.
To better connect our residents to our parks, open spaces, and the downtown area, a variety of multimodal projects are proposed, including:
Traffic flow is the Town’s most pressing transportation challenge. Many of Frederick’s key roadways lack turn lanes, which causes traffic backups, congestion, and collisions, especially during peak travel times. With recent and projected population growth, the number of vehicles on the roads will only increase, making the problem worse. Adding auxiliary turn lanes and making other related intersection improvements would help improve traffic flow and enhance safety for motorists and pedestrians. Funding is also needed to help improve snow removal, address year-round pothole repairs, and expand the Town’s multimodal transportation options.
The longer we wait to address our transportation challenges, the worse—and more costly—they will become. With more than 90% of our residents commuting by vehicle, bottlenecks and unsafe intersections will only expand as the population increases. Construction costs are also on the rise, increasing approximately 6 percent annually. Addressing our roadway issues now protects residents and their vehicles, enhances our community’s infrastructure, and saves money.
A sales tax proposal means that everyone, including out-of-town shoppers, pays their fair share—not just Frederick’s homeowners.
Residents are encouraged to participate in the Town’s online Transportation Survey. A link to the survey appears below.
The final decision on whether to place a sales tax measure on the November 2023 ballot will be made by the Board this summer, allowing ample time for additional public input.

While Hwy 52 is maintained by CDOT, the Town continues to communicate resident and Town interests to our CDOT partners. In 2022, the Town entered in to a multi-jurisdictional access control plan that identifies when and where access onto and from Hwy 52 should occur. As development occurs along Hwy 52, developer improvements will be made to conform to all adopted plans and traffic studies. For example, the Town is currently reviewing plans for the proposed Silverstone Marketplace development at the northwest corner of Hwy 52 and Colorado Blvd. As part of that proposed project, the applicant will be proposing to make and fund several improvements in and around Hwy 52 including:
Two neighborhood meetings have already occurred for this proposed development and additional opportunities to provide input will be forthcoming during the summer. Staff anticipates going to Planning Commission and the Board of Trustees for review and consideration mid-late summer 2023.

The current combined sales tax rate in Frederick is 6.4% which the Town of Frederick receives 3.5% and the remaining 2.9% goes to the State of Colorado. The Town of Frederick’s 3.5% sales tax revenue is split three ways: general sales tax (2%), public safety (1%), and open space (.50%). If a 1% sales tax (or approximately $2.1-2.4 million depending on economic conditions) were to be approved, it would go towards transportation infrastructure and maintenance.
