Celebrate Lyons!

All downtown Lyons businesses, including restaurants, are invited to participate in the “Celebrate Lyons Street Fairs” (similar to last May’s “Main Street Reopening”). There will be sidewalk sales along Main and High Streets, and the hope is that restaurants will also participate by offering specials and entertainment. Any local artists and/or musician who would like to participate in the festivities can contact Ellen Hine at 823-6364, or (303) 579-7606, or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

PCDC Wrestles With CEC

by Joseph Lekarczyk

The Lyons Planning and Community Development Commission (PCDC) basically had two things on their agenda Monday night: a public hearing, discussion and recommendation on the Whipp annexation (the Farmette at the bottom of Stone Canyon) and defining the Commercial Eastern Corridor (CEC) zone (which the Whipp property will in all likelihood be a part of).

New to the mix, were a half dozen patients, who put an interesting, and up to this point mostly unheard, voice into the mix.

Do You Foo?

Do You Foo?

The great thing about “urban myths,” (i.e. the bloody hook on the car door handle, alligators in the NYC subway tunnels, etc.) is sometimes there is a grain of truth to the tale which makes you want to “believe.” Or, how about the unannounced show, for the “fortunate few” at a small club by a legendary band, just yearning to get back to their roots.

Colorado’s Arbor Day is officially the third Friday in April (04/15/11). This year the Town encourages residents to plant new trees on their property in strategic locations to begin to subsidize the number of older trees that won’t be with us much longer, or may have been damaged due to drought, disease, or high winds.
