Frisco to Vote on CMC Location

On November 7 Frisco voters will decide whether to authorize the town council to pursue an agreement with Colorado Mountain College with regard to relocating the college to the Frisco Peninsula.

Those opposed to the peninsula site maintain the area should be reserved solely for recreational uses.

The peninsula totals 854 acres.

Of that amount, the town-owned Peninsula Recreation Area totals 217 acres.

A 20-acre campus would be 9 percent of the PRA and 2 percent of the entire peninsula.

The balance of the acreage is controlled by the U.S. Forest Service.

The location for the campus would be adjacent to Highway 9. The exact location within the 20 acres has not been finalized.
