  Statement from the Town of Lyons:

Because of the timeliness and sensitive nature of replacement housing in the Town of Lyons, the Board of Trustees has requested the following information from the September 15, 2014 Board of Trustees meeting be shared:

After lengthy discussion about the next steps for housing replacement, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously at their September 15, 2014 meeting to pursue the second round of Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding for housing replacement. The Board agreed to seek replacement for all destroyed houses through a mixture of private and public housing options. They have tentatively determined the need to apply for public funding for 60 homes (+/-10). Staff was instructed to prepare a Notice of Intent for this funding, which is due by November 1, and full application for funding by December 15.
The Board agreed that robust public engagement be pursued, as well as involvement of the Boulder County Housing Authority. The Housing Recovery Task Force will host a meeting on Monday, September 29, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. to further discuss this topic.
For further detail about the meeting and discussion, please reference www.townoflyons.com. Minutes to be scheduled to be approved at the October 6th meeting.

 Meadow Park Phase II

On Monday, October 13, the BOT approved the resolution awarding the service agreement to Ripley Design, Inc for the Meadow Park Phase II. This phase will take place near the area where the former walking path, pavilions, and ball park was.  Phase I was completed the first of July 2014.
The Town of Lyons solicited proposals for Phase II of Meadow Park Recovery Project Request for Proposal (RFP) for the public process, master planning, final design, construction drawings and bid documents to complete the recovery of Meadow Park related to the September 2013 flood. Three proposals were received from consulting teams, and after careful review, the team recommended the design team of Ripley Design, Inc. and S20 Design & Engineering. Town staff identified Ripley Design, Inc. as the bidder providing the most comprehensive services in accordance with the RFP and as the lowest responsible bidder at a total cost of $341,070.

The following graphic is the projected public process. Please refer to the Town of Lyons website & media for times and updates.
