Dear Lyons Voters,
The Lyons Economic Development Commission endorses Ballot Issue 3-A, the Mill Override measure for the St. Vrain Valley School District.

The good news is that we have received word that a grant from the State Historical Preservation Fund, to finish work on the museum, has been awarded to the Lyons Redstone Museum. The money from the grant will cover: pointing the sandstone with the rounded antique tool, painting the exterior panels on the upper story, and painting and renovating the fire escape. The total cost of the project is $71,197 (grant of $54,248, plus a cash match of $18,049).
