The Town of Lyons’ Community Development Department helps citizens, businesses, and landowners plan and develop for the future. It also helps ensure both existing and future development complies with Town code. The Department’s goal is to help guide new development and evaluate existing development to ensure both the safety and prosperity of local citizens, landowners, and business as we simultaneously protect our natural resources. The work of the Community Development Department most clearly aligns with the Lyons Comprehensive Plan Goal for Land Use and Growth: “Ensure that the built environment contributes to Lyons’ identity and is consistent with the proposed 2010 Lyons Planning Area Map and the Sustainable Design and Development Principles.”
The Community Development Department provides planning and zoning services, development services, historic preservation services, code compliance, and land use licensing.
