One of the items that keep rising to the top of all of our public planning processes (Comprehensive Plan / Recovery Plan / Sustainability Action Plan) is the want for our community to exist in a way that minimizes our impact on our natural environment. The Town is changing many of its internal practices and services to be more sustainable but we need residents to also embrace sustainability in order to have as large a positive impact as possible.
The Town has recently hired a part-time Sustainability Coordinator (paid in part by a Boulder County grant) who function will include the creation of money saving, practical and impactful programs with supportive outreach campaign for residents. While some of these opportunities will be unique to Lyons others will be done in conjunction with partners who already have the appropriate offerings that bring value.
We will be updating our content and resources on our website on a regular basis so be sure to come back soon. If you have any ideas, concerns or questions please feel free to reach out to the Town’s Sustainability Coordinator.
