Deadline Approaching: 2017 Lyons EcoPass Renewal

The Town of Lyons has continued its EcoPass program for all Town residents, through 2017. Unlike previous years, there will now be a small annual $25 fee for the EcoPass that will be due before the end of March (the pass has a retail value of over $2,000).
Lyons EcoPass provides residents with free use of any RTD bus and light rail services. This includes the “Y” service from Lyons to Boulder, buses to the airport, and buses and light rail in and around Boulder, Longmont and Denver.
The deadline for paying is coming up! If you already have an EcoPass you need to pay $25 before March 31 in order to keep it active (if you have multiple members in your family you will need to pay $25 per pass). There are two ways to do this. You can bring a check to Town Hall or make the payment online at
Once you pay the fee no further action is required, your card will continue to work. EcoPass holders that do not pay the fee by March 31st cards will be deactivated until payment is received.
If you do not already have an EcoPass you can apply for a new one for the same cost of $25. For more information visit

Resident Parking Passes Now Available

The Town of Lyons Department of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Events will be reinstating a parking fee for LaVern Johnson Park in 2017. A parking fee of $5 for every 4 hours for those who wish to park in LaVern Johnson on weekends and holidays, from April 1 through October 15. One free resident parking pass will be issued to one vehicle per household that signs up. A second pass may be obtained for $35, and third pass is $55. Non-residents may purchase a season parking pass for a flat rate of $75.00 per vehicle. 

Vehicles must have the parking pass displayed at all times when parked in LaVern Park to avoid a violation fee. 

During the summer season, vehicles without a parking pass will be charged $5 for every 4 hours, which can be processed at the kiosks located throughout the park.

Golf carts are required to pay parking fees, as well; residents may use the one free parking pass on golf carts.

Resident parking stickers will be mailed once proof of residency and vehicle information is provided at Lyons Town Hall or on the Town of Lyons website. Residency is proven by showing a Town of Lyons utility bill. To sign up for a parking pass, visit Lyons Town Hall or apply online at the following link:

Got Spurge?
We’re talking Myrtle Spurge (Euphorbia myrsinites)

via Wildlands Restoration Volunteers

Parts of Lyons have Myrtle Spurge infestations. If you’re not familiar with Myrtle Spurge, it’s an A-listed Noxious weed in Colorado, meaning it is mandatory to remove it from your property under the law. But there is help! Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV), a non-profit based in Boulder, CO has a program to help homeowners remove Myrtle Spurge for a single year in exchange for an agreement to manage it in following years. We are targeting a small area in Lyons this year but hope to open it up next spring to a larger area and accept more applications for assistance.

WRV volunteers will be in Lyons for a volunteer weed pull on the evening of March 31st, and if you would like to help out we’re still recruiting volunteers! To sign up follow the instructions below. If you would like more information about this event or about our Myrtle Spurge Program please contact Morgan Crowley, WRV’s Weeds Program Manager at
