The Ice Rink Is Open

Mother Nature Dependent

Nice work! Mother Nature has been cooperative and with parks and public works staff, the ice rink is open. It opened right on cue for the first Winter Wonderland Concert last weekend.  The rink is available for both recreation skating and hockey. 
To see the daily schedule, visit the Town's website.
Staff will be renting skates this weekend, from noon - 4 pm, as long as the weather stays cold enough for a safe ice skating experience.

Thanks for your donations to LEAF, LCF, Lyons Volunteers and the Historical Society.

Christmas Tree Recycling

Successful Program

In addition, nearly $980 in donations were collected for local non-profits. Thank you!

Flood Mapping

Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps

Meeting in Lyons Thur Jan 23

Following the 2013 flood, the state-funded Colorado Hazard Mapping Program (CHAMP) has been re-mapping the regulatory floodplain of the most affected waterways in Colorado.
In 2017 and 2018, Boulder County adopted comprehensive zoning map amendments to the Floodplain Overlay Zoning District based on draft CHAMP mapping for unincorporated Boulder County. The draft data were also submitted to FEMA, which released Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for CHAMP-studied stream reaches in September 2019. To learn more, attend this important open house.

Thursday, Jan. 23 | 5 to 6:30 p.m. (presentation at 5:15 p.m.)
North and South Saint Vrain creeks and Saint Vrain Creek
Lyons Regional Library – 451 Fourth Ave. in Lyons
This is a joint meeting between Boulder County and the Town of Lyons

RTD service reduction proposal

Draft proposal presented December 19

On December 19, RTD presented a service reduction proposal to their Board. If approved, the impacts to Lyons would be effective in late May 2020. The service reductions to the Y route (Lyons- Boulder) propose to cancel the 5:35 am southbound service and the 6:39 pm northbound route, primarily due to very low ridership. The other two morning southbound routes, 6:37 am and 7:47 am and the afternoon northbound routes 4:09 pm and 5:26 pm would remain.
