Flood Buyout Parcels Within Lyons Planning Area

Apple Valley Road

Acquired Parcels Meeting
Monday, January 27 from 5:30 - 6:30 pm

The Town of Lyons Planning and Community Development Commission would like citizen input on the Boulder County acquired parcels on Apple Valley Road. 

Boulder County would like to possibly transfer these parcels to the Town of Lyons. We are seeking input on how the parcels could be used in ways that benefit the community. These parcels were destroyed in the 2013 flood and because the land was purchased with federal funds they can only be used for recreation and conservation as open spaces. The Town of Lyons Planning and Community Development Commission is seeking input so they can recommend possible use of the acquired parcels to the Board of Trustees. The Parks and Recreation Commission and Ecology Board are also part of the public input process.
Anyone interested may attend.

Monday, Jan. 27 | 5:30  to 6:30 pm
Lyons Regional Library – 451 Fourth Ave

Flood Mapping

Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps

Meeting in Lyons Monday, FEB 10

An open house for residents and businesses in the Town of Lyons is scheduled for February 10 to review the FEMA appeals process and flood insurance requirements related to the Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).

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.

The Town of Lyons adopted a best available data ordinance  based on draft CHAMP mapping for The Town of Lyons. The draft data were also submitted to FEMA, which released Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for CHAMP-studied stream reaches in September 2019.

Homeowners in the impacted areas should attend this important informational session
