January 21 - Demo pre-bid meeting and walk around sites
January 25 - Rescue Training on approved sites acquired by Town

January 25-30 - Final week of salvaging on approved sites
February 8 - Demolitions and debris removal
February 22 - Grading and seeding


The Buyout Program

Following the flood, FEMA and HUD offered to purchase properties (at pre-flood values) from property owners located in the floodplain, whose homes had been damaged by the flood. In turn, the acquired parcels would be cleared of structures and maintained as Town-owned open space in perpetuity. 
To date, 16 properties have been acquired, and the Town anticipates to close on eleven more by mid-February. 

Youth Softball & Baseball Coaches

The Town of Lyons Parks and Recreation department is calling for baseball and softball coaches for teams of all ages: from 6 and under to fourteen-year-olds. Girls softball will begin in April and boys baseball in May. Both are expected to run until mid-June to July. Practices will be at Lyons Middle/Senior High and games will be in Longmont.
For more information, or to apply for a coaching position, please contact Marissa Davis at 303-823-8250, or recreation@townoflyons.com.
