Mayor's Message

October 2021

Did you know the Town of Frederick has over 900 acres of park and open space land within our almost 16 square mile planning area? That includes 24 developed parks, 594 acres of open space, 17 miles of trails, and a 9-hole municipal golf course.  All of these outdoor havens help to support and cultivate our quality of life. Throughout the outdoors of Frederick, we are working diligently to evaluate our water usage and conservation, the quality and variety of play equipment and multi-generational amenities, and the overall maintenance of our natural and planned park and open space areas. With that continuity and value in mind, the Board of Trustees has authorized a Frederick Parks Department and is looking to hire a Parks Director. A Parks Department will alleviate responsibility from our Public Works Department while supporting and preserving our parks and open space amenities. We aim for a 5-star rating and invite you to play in comfort and safety. 

The Town is anticipating the approval and adoption of our inaugural Water Master Plan in October. This plan includes recommended conservation efforts, potential landscaping suggestions to aid in water preservation, and ultimately how the Town will acquire water for the coming years. In addition, this plan will serve as our guidance and strategy to promote and provide a multi-layer approach to our water future. 

Experience our regulation 9-hole golf course at Bella Rosa Golf Course (5830 Bella Rosa Parkway)! After a round of golf, enjoy a bite to eat at our full-service restaurant and bar, The Back 9. We are excited to introduce NEW menus for breakfast, lunch, and afternoon patio bites. In addition, fire pits and open seating on our patio are now available.  

Suppose you missed our Santa Cops golf tournament fundraiser on October 2. If that's the case, you can still participate and help provide toys, warm winter clothing, and other heartfelt gifts with a sponsorship! Our officers look forward to this shopping trip every year, and your monetary donations make a dream come true for children of the Carbon Valley!  Call the Frederick Police Department at 720.382.5700 and ask for Pat. Together we can take care of our FRED families!

Town of Frederick Mayor, Tracie Crites
