TOWN OF FRISCO WINS COLORADO LOTTERY STARBURST AWARD FOR FRISCO BIKE PARK

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DENVER, Oct. 16, 2013– The Colorado Lottery has awarded a 2013 Starburst Community Award to the Town of Frisco for excellence in the use of Lottery dollars for the Frisco Bike Park project. The Town of Frisco utilized a Lottery-funded Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) grant of $200,000 for the project.

The goal of the project was to create and foster a community of bicycle riders of all ages and abilities, whereby they could all congregate in one location and, as skills improve, flow from beginner to expert terrain. The overall goal has been achieved by the successful design, production and maintenance of the park, as riders of all ages and abilities are utilizing the park and all the different zones on a daily basis. The project consists of trails, jumps, pump track features, ladder bridges, landscaping, signage and a parking lot.

The Colorado Lottery Starburst Community Awards recognize excellence in the use of Lottery proceeds in community projects implemented to enhance a community’s environment.

In Fiscal Year 2013 alone, the Lottery distributed $135.6 million in proceeds. Since its creation 30 years ago, the Lottery has returned more than $2.5 billion to the state.

The Colorado Lottery is a division of the Colorado Department of Revenue. Colorado Lottery proceeds are distributed to three primary beneficiaries: Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO), Conservation Trust Fund and Colorado Parks and Wildlife. These organizations then provide grants and direct funding for parks, recreation, open space acquisition, trails, wildlife and conservation education.
