LESAP

In August 2013, the Town of Lyons hired Natural Capitalism Solutions (NCS) - a Hygiene-based non-profit - to support the creation of an Environmental Sustainability Plan specific to Lyons. After the September 2013 flood, the scope of the Lyons Environmental Sustainability Action Plan (LESAP) was expanded to address the town's need for resilient and sustainable solutions in the aftermath of the flood. 

After more than a year, NCS, with guidance from a broad stakeholder group, including oversight from the Sustainable Futures Commission, has finalized the LESAP, and on March 2, 2015 the Board of Trustees, approved the resolution to adopt the LESAP.
The BOT also approved the submittable of a Boulder County Sustainability Grant, which would fund an Environmental Sustainability Coordinator position to help administer the Plan.
