Lyons Primary Planning Area Master Plan Public Hearing
Monday, March 13 | 7 p.m. | Lyons Town Hall
The Lyons Primary Planning Area (LPPA) Master Plan: Comprehensive Plan Amendment and Three-Mile Plan
public hearing before the Planning and Community Development Commission (PCDC) is scheduled for March 13, beginning at 7 p.m., at the Lyons Town Hall Board Room. The final draft
of the document is now available for public review.
Commencing in March of 2016, the Town of Lyons kicked-off a planning process that included 10 public meetings. The purpose this process was to develop a plan that would help to inform any future development in any of the areas outside of town limits that are within the boundaries of the Lyons Primary Planning Area. These LPPA boundaries were established by a 2012 Intergovernmental Agreement with Boulder County. According to state statutes, a municipality must have a Three-Mile Plan in place before any annexations can be finalized. So not only will the LPPA Master Plan guide future decisions on development and land uses in the planning area, it will also satisfy the Three-Mile Plan state requirement. In order to satisfy these requirements, the LPPA Master Plan must be adopted as an amendment to the 2010 Comprehensive Plan. Therefore, the plan will need to be approved by a super majority (2/3rds) of the members of the Planning & Community Development Commission before being ratified by resolution by the Board of Trustees.
The PCDC Public Hearing will be take place on March 13, 2017 at 7pm at Town Hall. The final LPPA Master Plan and Appendix can be found here
. This document will have an impact on the future development of Lyons.
Public comment is welcomed and encouraged.
