Master plan provides roadmap for next 20 years of development for County facilities in Frisco area

Scott Vargo, Assistant County Manager

SUMMIT COUNTY – Summit County has published the County Commons Facilities Master Plan, a roadmap for future development of the existing 130-acre campus just east of Frisco. The plan was developed over the past four months with input from the public, neighboring property owners and a wide spectrum of stakeholders who use existing facilities on the campus.

The Summit County Commons campus includes a large industrial area, home to such uses as Road and Bridge operations, public transit, ambulance services and emergency operations; a county services area, which includes the County Commons building, Animal Control, the Frisco Recycling Drop-Off Center and the Summit County Community and Senior Center; and a medical campus, which includes the Summit County Medical Office Building, St. Anthony Summit Medical Center and Peak One Surgery Center.

“Given the number and variety of services housed on this campus, we need to be thoughtful about how it can accommodate growth over the next two decades,” Assistant County Manager Scott Vargo said. “We want to set the community up for future success in utilizing this land as efficiently as possible.”

The new master plan addresses a number of issues and needs, including safety and traffic flow, facility conditions, road alignments, mitigation of impacts to neighboring properties, growth needs, senior housing and efficiency in the delivery of County services. The plan also contains recommendations on phasing various stages of development throughout the campus and estimated project costs.
