Due to storms passing through Lone Tree, our Independence Day fireworks display has been delayed to 10 p.m. If you wish to return to Sweetwater Park, you are welcome to. However, the north entrance off Maximus and the east entrance from the Contour 39 Apartments will be closed. We encourage you to find other locations throughout the City where you can catch a good view and not risk missing the show. We apologize for this inconvenience but our priority, first and foremost, is everyone’s safety.

Small Cell Wireless Facilities Are Coming to Lone Tree

The increasing demand for wireless communications has led several wireless companies—including Sprint, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile—to consider installation of small cell wireless poles throughout Lone Tree.

Since the Colorado legislature passed a law in 2017 requiring municipalities to accommodate these poles in public rights of way, including in residential neighborhoods, it’s important to note that the City of Lone Tree cannot prohibit these installations.  However, the City has worked with many of the companies to design poles that will reduce their visual impact. Depending on its location, a new wireless facility may resemble a flag pole or street light, or it may be attached to an existing street light or traffic signal.

For more information, contact the City Manager’s Office or Public Works Department at 303-708-1818.

Join 35,000 riders for a greener, healthier commute on Bike to Work Day

BiketoWork.jpg

Bike to Work Day is coming up on Wednesday, June 27. If you’re new to bike commuting or need a little motivation to get back in the game, this is the day to make it happen.

More than 300 breakfast stations around the region will be serving up food and fun from 6:30 - 9 a.m. The Lone Tree breakfast station will be located at the intersection of the C-470 Trail and the Willow Creek Trail. 

“This event was created to encourage people to try biking to work and to raise awareness of the benefits of active commuting,” said Doug Rex, executive director for DRCOG. “We love the excitement and energy on the big day, and our hope is that people see how easy it is, appreciate the benefits and continue to choose bike commuting more often.”

Those benefits come in many forms. Bike commuters are less stressed and a little richer with each trip they take, compared to single-occupant car commuters. It’s also healthier and could actually save you time if you live within five miles of your workplace. Bike commuting also reduces traffic congestion and improves air quality.

Ready to give it a try? Register your ride to be eligible to win prizes such as concert tickets, an e-bike or an all-expenses paid cycling trip to Iceland. While on the site, you can also map your route and see if there are any group rides planned in your area.

Get social on Bike to Work Day! Share photos of your favorite breakfast, the coolest swag or that awesome helmet hair.
