Tiny Homes In Lyons, Colorado
Tiny Homes Are Legal In Lyons, Colorado
The journey to legalize tiny homes on wheels in Lyons, Colorado was a three year journey. We need to thank Byron Fears, owner of SimBLISSity Tiny Homes for being on the forefront of this battle. Byron Fears is the Director Of Communications for the Tiny Home Industry Association ( THIA ).
I want to chronicle this journey that has helped the entire tiny home industry.
Chuck Ballard, President of Pacific West Associates and Director of Standards for THIA was also instrumental in legalizing tiny homes in Lyons, Colorado.
According To Connie Sullivan: Mayor Of Lyons, Colorado
In Lyons, you can now have a tiny home on wheels as an ADU. The only place in CO where it is legal to do so. Kudos to the PCDC for their work on this complex ordinance. They spent two years researching and crafting a policy that will allow home owners to become or partner with tiny home enthusiasts to create affordable living solutions in Lyons.
Lyons doesn’t often “go first” where policy is concerned, but in this case it was important to lead. Boulder County has a serious affordable housing shortage, and we understand tiny homes thanks to local businesses like Wee Casa and SimBLISSity. This was a well thought out effort with a lot of input. Let’s see where it goes, but I look forward to getting to know the folks who are part of this movement. They will fit right in. Just another reason why Lyons is the coolest town on the front range.
