Statement from the Town of Lyons:
Because of the timeliness and sensitive nature of replacement housing in the Town of Lyons, the Board of Trustees has requested the following information from the September 15, 2014 Board of Trustees meeting be shared:
After lengthy discussion about the next steps for housing replacement, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously at their September 15, 2014 meeting to pursue the second round of Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding for housing replacement. The Board agreed to seek replacement for all destroyed houses through a mixture of private and public housing options. They have tentatively determined the need to apply for public funding for 60 homes (+/-10). Staff was instructed to prepare a Notice of Intent for this funding, which is due by November 1, and full application for funding by December 15.
The Board agreed that robust public engagement be pursued, as well as involvement of the Boulder County Housing Authority. The Housing Recovery Task Force will host a meeting on Monday, September 29, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. to further discuss this topic.
