Funding Available For Housing In Boulder County

Nonprofit human services agencies and housing authorities may now apply for a special round of Worthy Cause funding for capital projects that would provide permanently supported housing units in Boulder County.

Boulder County has a lack of affordable housing, high-cost rental housing, and ranks second to Denver in the region in its population of chronically homeless individuals. The Boulder County ten-year plan to end homelessness identified the need for at least one hundred new units of permanently supportive housing units to help address housing and supportive services for this population.

What’s The Future For Affordable Housing In Lyons?
By Amy Reinholds

Editor’s Note: Ms. Reinholds served on the Lyons Housing Recovery Task Force from December 2013 through its end in February 2015. She is currently a member of the Lyons Human Services and Aging Commission. She has lived in Lyons for eleven years and in the surrounding Lyons area since 1995.

Let’s look at what’s happened in the past week related to affordable housing. For background on who I am and what a new group of citizens is doing, read my past columns: pre-election and post-election.

The request to the Board of Trustees from Justin Spencer, Nate Mohatt, Tom Delker, and Craig Ferguson asking the board to create an affordable housing commission didn’t make the April 6 agenda, so Justin is sending a request for the April 20 meeting. They asked me to speak during the April 6 public comments to express to the board that there are people who want to keep working on affordable

Oh no! Five pages written and I lost all my news! I had a couple of ladies come to help me, but all was lost. I did hit save, but it was gone with a touch of a key! If you have Doc 2007 and know what to do, call me (303) 823-5925 so this never happens again!

We had beautiful weather for Easter; to church, dinner, for a ride, etc. A time to renew our faith, enjoy the spring flowers, and give thanks for that late snow, which will make things green. Spring has sprung!

Lyons Competes At Mountain Range Mustang Invitational

By Renée Haip
On April 5, Lyons’ athletes participated in yet another highly competitive meet, the Mountain Range Mustang Track and Field Invitational at Mountain Range High School in Westminster. Due to spring break absences, the Lions boasted a small, yet powerful contingent of competitors producing thirteen personal records. After the weekend results were registered into Colorado Milesplit statistics, the 2A virtual meet shows the Lyons’ boys pulling slightly ahead of Cedaredge in the numbers game, while the Lady Lions continue to hold a solid second to Paonia.

Letter for the Editor

Dear Lyons Community,
Thank you to all who helped put on a successful production of “Ho Ho Ho It’s Not Santa!” at Lyons Community Church this last Sunday, March 29, which was Palm Sunday. This original play was built around two simple delightful songs, “Ho Ho Ho Hosanna” and “Rejoice in the Lord Always.” The kids had a wonderful time, if I am safe in assuming that from
