Town Of Lyons

Governor Visits Lyons Again

Just a few days after presiding over the official re-opening of Highway 36, between Lyons and Estes Park, on Monday, November 4, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper was back in Lyons on Friday afternoon, November 8, to take a walking tour of the hardest hit neighborhoods, talk to the residents many of whom lost their homes, and sit down with local

business owners and town officials to learn first-hand what is needed and how the State of Colorado can best assist in the recovery process.

Hickenlooper was particularly interested in the Oskar Blues’ CAN’d Aid program and the Lyons Community Foundation’s Rebuild Lyons One Life At A Time program, which are granting recovery funds to businesses and individuals located in the Lyons area. The Governor indicated that he was hosting a visit in early December from the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and promised to try and get back to Lyons to for another visit and walking tour.
