Water Talk at the Lyons Farmette

Friday, April 26 | 7 p.m.


Chances are good that without the imported water from the Colorado Big Thompson Project, most of us wouldn’t be living here on the Front Range. The intricate engineering marvel that brings Colorado Western Slope water to our faucets here in Lyons will be the subject of a talk April 26 at 7 p.m. at the Farmette.

Greg Silkensen from the Northern Water Conservancy will describe how his organization manages water resources for residential and agricultural needs along the Front Range. The talk is the latest in a series of public outreach events sponsored by the Town of Lyons Ecology Advisory Board.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion. Light refreshments will be served.

CDOT SH-66 Planning & Environmental Linkages Study

Thursday, April 18


The Colorado Department of Transportation is conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study of the Colorado Highway 66 corridor, from McConnell Drive in Lyons to Weld County Road 19. The study team will identify the needs along CO 66 and develop a strategic, long-term vision for the corridor. PEL is an approach to transportation decision-making that considers environmental, community, and economic goals, and potential impacts early in the planning process to inform the subsequent project development, design, and construction phases.

The second public meeting is listed below, and will contain the same content as the previously held (April 16) meeting:

Thursday, April 18, 2019
4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Longs Peak Middle School
1500 14th Avenue
Longmont, CO 80501

The public meetings will be an open house format, where participants can stop by at any time to learn about the study’s current schedule, the corridor’s retained alternatives related to safety, mobility, and access, and provide feedback about those alternatives. Attendees will also be introduced to the Access Control Plan, which will make recommendations for future changes to the location and design of driveways and intersections.
