Tree Trimming

Monday, Oct. 9 through Friday, Oct. 13

Beginning the week of Oct. 9. the Parks & Public Works team will be trimming trees along overhead power lines throughout the northern region of Town (north of Broadway), as a continuation of the town-wide efforts. They will be working in the right-of-ways, which includes alleys and streets. Please help the efficiency of this project, by ensuring vehicles aren’t blocking any right-of-way-access.   

CDOT US-36 Road Work


CDOT’s US-36 pavement project through Lyons was delayed last week due to weather and the fallen power line. CDOT anticipates the road to remain as two lanes along the construction area for the week of Oct. 9. They plan to work only Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

The Town has been communicating with CDOT and contractors about the concerns regarding traffic and business access. There will be no work this weekend.

Along with the pavement project, CDOT also plans to replace a signal pole and update signal controllers at 4th Ave. and Main St. next week.

Possible Winter Weather

The weather forecast calls for rain beginning Sunday evening, and turning to snow around midnight in the foothills and higher elevations. Snow is forecast to begin early Monday morning. Forecast accumulation totals at this time range from 4” to 8” in Mountain areas. The snow is expected to last through the day and taper off Monday evening and is not expected to be accompanied by significant winds. However, nearly 100% of leaves remain on area trees, which could result in heavy branches falling and power outages.
Town utility customers, should you experience a power outage during weekend hours, please call the non-emergency dispatch office at 303.441.4444.


Lyons Village East RFP

Lyons Village East Redevelopment

The Town is requesting proposals for redevelopment of a prime location recently annexed to the Town. The property consists of multiple parcels currently occupied by one of Longmont's former water treatment plants, located both north and south of the Colorado State Highway 66 (Ute Highway) in unincorporated Boulder County, Colorado east of the Town of Lyons (just east of the intersection of State Highway 66 & US Highway 36).

The site is owned by Lyons, and is currently zoned A-1 Agricultural District. The Town anticipates redevelopment of the site will serve as a major catalyst for investment. The Town seeks development that would complement existing businesses, maintain the small-town character, and assist with meeting its affordable housing goals.
