Bohn Park Phase II

The Town was recently informed of procedural gaps that have occurred in the Bohn Park Phase II project. The Town has been working closely with the project funder, FEMA, in addressing the discrepancies to move forward. While the entities continue to work together, 

You may have noticed a lull in activity at Bohn Park Phase II. Pending guidance from involved federal agencies, Phase II is temporarily on hold while federal agencies determine whether a Cultural Resource Survey is complete. The Town intends to have more information next week. 

Meanwhile, please enjoy the newly opened Phase I (north end) of Bohn Park!  

Colorado Primaries

2018 Changes to Primary Elections in Colorado

Colorado voters approved Proposition 108 in 2016, which allows unaffiliated voters (sometimes referred to as “independent” voters) to now participate in Colorado primary elections.

This year, all active unaffiliated voters will receive the Primary Election ballots for both the Democratic and Republican Parties in the mail. The voter may vote and return only one of the ballots. If a voter marks and returns more than one party’s ballot, none of their votes will be counted.

As an alternative, unaffiliated voters may update their voter registration and declare a ballot preference in advance of the Primary Election at Declaring a ballot preference does not change your unaffiliated voter registration, this option simply means you will receive just one of the major party's ballots in the mail for this election. This option helps conserve taxpayer resources, because your county will only need to print and mail one ballot, instead of two.

The Boulder County Elections Division asks that if voters already know which party’s primary they want to participate in, to update their voter registration by mid-May, if possible. Ballots will be mailed the first week of June.

For those registered with a political party, there are no changes to the Primary Election process. The voter will get a ballot in the mail for their political party, if their party is holding a Primary Election.

For more voter and election information, visit or call 303-413-7740.

Hungry Bears are Waking Up

The Lyons Ecology Advisory Board wants to remind everyone to be bear-aware this May. Hungry bears are waking up, and hopefully with the mild winter we had, there will be plenty of food for them in the mountains. However, we can do our part to make sure that we don’t draw bears into town.
1. Secure your trash cans. For sources on bear resistant containers see this link:
2. Bring your bird and hummingbird feeders in at night.
3. Don’t leave unharvested fruit on your trees around your property.
