PERSONAL

SENTIMENTS

ABOUT THE GVPD

Undoubtedly, July 2016 marked one

of the most tragic months in the

history of our country

with some heartbreaking

events involving law

enforcement. In times

like these one’s focus

becomes inward to those

immediately around us

— all members of our

very own Greenwood

Village Police

Department (GVPD).

While some other

communities may view

their law enforcement

members as adversaries

— that sentiment could

not be more diametrically opposed to

the viewpoint of the citizens of

Greenwood Village.

Ron Rakowsky

rrakowsky@

greenwoodvillage.com

303-486-5741

When I speak with our citizens about

members of GVPD the words they use

are: appreciate, respect, and even love.

To our police officers I say: Have you

had disrespect from people you

interact with — yes, but how many

actually live and work here and of

those few — what percentage of those

you serve do they represent?

The citizens of Greenwood Village and

their elected representatives, stand

shoulder to shoulder with our Police

Department as they have in the past

and will in the future. They are our

protective servants who vow every day

to make a difference in a person’s life,

yet putting their own lives on the line

every day, not knowing when they

may get dispatched to that one call for

service that could change their lives

forever.

We often hear about horrible

experiences with police officers. It’s

very disheartening and sad for what

others have experienced. However, our

Police Officers are focused on helping

people and are trained to conduct

themselves with decency and kindness

to everyone. Please don’t lose faith in

our law enforcement organization in

Greenwood Village. They are truly on

our side.

PROTECT THE BEES

Some of us may think they are

bothersome insects at times when they

buzz around taking aim at the first

opportunity to instill a sting, but you

may not appreciate the full benefits

honey bees bring to us and our

environment.

Did you know, there are about 25,000

types of bees in the world and that

most species are actually solitary, that

males cannot sting, and that

collectively they help to pollinate an

estimated one-third of all the food we

eat? Bees are not only important to

humans, they play a crucial role in our

environment. Of course, we can’t

forget that they treat us with delicious

sweet honey we use for those sweet

treats we enjoy.

Bees are proven to be a

valuable resource for

our environment,

however, their existence

is in trouble and I ask

for your help. There are

several pesticides on the

market that are killing

bees and their colonies.

It is estimated that last

year, U.S. beekeepers

lost 44 percent of their

colonies due to the use

of harmful pesticides.

Here is what you can

do:

• Use Neem Oil Weed

Control as it is the best

alternative to killing

weeds without

bothering the bees.

• Do not cut wild flowers, such as

dandelions as they are a fantastic

source of food (pollen) for bees.

• Buy plants that have not been

sprayed with neonicotinoids.

Oftentimes, plants are sprayed with

neonicotinoids in order to keep the

bugs from eating the roots which

slows the growth of the plant.

However, these neonicotinoids do

not just sit on top of the plant but

seep into the tissues of the plant

making the plant twice as deadly

for pollinators. The tag that

informs you if the plant has been

sprayed with neonicotinoids is not

always visible and sometimes

hidden in the pot, so make sure to

look for it!

Mayor Ron reports

ALL YOUNG MEN

MUST REGISTER

FOR SELECTIVE

SERVICE SYSTEM

Because school is almost back in

session, I want to remind you that all

male U.S. citizens must register for the

Selective Service System when they

turn 18, as do male noncitizens who

take up residency in the U.S. before

their 26th birthday. That includes

illegal aliens, legal permanent residents

and refugees.

Registering does not mean a man will

automatically be inducted into the

military. In a crisis requiring a draft,

men would be called in a sequence

determined by random lottery number

and year of birth. Then, they would be

examined for mental, physical, and

moral fitness by the military before

being deferred or exempted from

military service or inducted into the

Armed Forces.

In addition to a hefty fine, not

registering can also affect your ability

to go to school, become a citizen and

get a job. You may not qualify for

federal student loans or grant

programs; you cannot participate in

the federal job-training act called the

Workforce Investment Act; you are

not eligible for jobs in the executive

branch of the federal government and

the U.S. Postal Service; and you may

not be able to get a driver’s license, as

some states require proof of

registration. Essentially, by registering

you are complying with your civic

duty as a citizen of the Unites States.

It is easy to register and most

registration occurs in high school.

However, young men can also go to

the U.S. Post Office and pick up a

Selective Service registration card,

register online at www.sss.gov and

click on the registration icon, or

complete registration on the Federal

Student Aid (FAFSA) form. You may

also call 888-655-1825 for more

information.

BACK TO

SCHOOL SAFETY

Whether your student is headed back

to elementary, middle, or high school,

August can be an exciting yet busy

time for everyone as they prepare for

another year of learning. With all the

fun and excitement, I want to make

sure parents as well as students are

aware of some back to school safety

tips to start the new school year right.

You can find these important tips,

provided by the Police Department on

pages 12-13 of this Newsletter. If you

ever have any concerns related to your

child’s safety, including traffic safety

around schools, please don’t hesitate to

contact your designated Police School

Resource Officer or the Police

Department at 303-773-2525. GV

MAKING A difference

TOO NOISY?

TALK TO YOUR NEIGHBORS FIRST;

THEN CALL THE VILLAGE

In an effort to protect the quality of life of the community,

Greenwood Village Code regulates noise disturbances. Most

noises become a violation when they are continually

bothersome to others. Citizens are encouraged to be

reasonable when it comes to filing a complaint about noise

and calling the Village when the noise becomes excessive,

ongoing, and/or no resolution can be reached with your

neighbor or the person(s) generating the noise. The Village

realizes that each situation can be different but the overall

goal is to stop any disturbing noise in the community before

it becomes a nuisance to others.

If talking to your neighbor or the person generating the noise

is out of the question, residents are asked to contact the

following departments for assistance on a variety of noise

issues. Depending upon the noise complaint, a member of

Community Development or the Police Department will

investigate any noise concerns.

AMPLIFIED SOUND, STEREOS,

PARTIES AND LIVE BANDS

Contact: Police Department, 303-486-8222

Generally, any noise

derived from a sound

system, stereo, special event

or party, live entertainment

or any device, event or

system that amplifies,

produces or reproduces

sound. Generally, hours are

restricted from 10 p.m.

until 7 a.m. on weekdays, 7 p.m. and 8 a.m. on Saturdays,

and 7 p.m. and 10 a.m. on Sundays and holidays.

INTERNAL COMBUSTION EQUIPMENT,

DELIVERY AND TRASH REMOVAL

TRUCKS AND

CONSTRUCTION

Contact: Community

Development,

303-486-5783

Operating any tools or

equipment in connection

with construction is only

allowed Monday-Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m. to

7 p.m. and Sunday/holidays 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

FIDDLER’S GREEN AMPHITHEATRE

CONCERT NOISE COMPLAINT LINE

303-486-8275

Noise levels from

Fiddler’s Green

Amphitheatre are

measured at the

mix which means

at a location

approximately 100

feet from the front

of the stage, where

all of the sound equipment is set up. Sound levels are

measured through the use of a precisely calibrated

microphone that feeds data directly into a computer, with the

computer recording sound levels over 15-minute legs. Sound

levels, measured at the mix, should not exceed 110 decibels.

The Police Department takes record of every call received

from the concert noise complaint line after each concert and

will respond to every complainant and track noise issues by

address. In addition, during every concert, the Police

Department visually inspects the noise measuring equipment

to ensure noise levels do not exceed approved sound levels.

CENTENNIAL AIRPORT NOISE HOTLINE

303-790-4709

To file a noise

complaint within seven

days of occurrence, call

the Centennial Airport

Noise Complaint

Hotline or complete the

noise complaint form

accessible on the

Airport’s Website at

www.centennial

airport.com, click on “Noise Abatement” and then click on

“Track and Report Noise.”

In addition, Centennial Airport monitors noise through its

12 noise monitors installed in communities surrounding the

airport including a Greenwood Village monitor located in the

Orchard Hills greenbelt area. The monitors provide data

regarding altitude, speed, height, noise, flight tracks, and

aircraft identification to a central system connected to

technology at the airport. GV

90+ DEGREE WEATHER

CAUSING STRESS TO YOUR LAWN?*

According to the Associated Landscape Contractors of

Colorado (ALCC), the issue may not be heat stress.

Overwatering can cause lawn disease so it’s important to

know whether your lawn truly needs an extra dose of water.

Signs that your lawn does in fact need more water include

brown spots that are dry with a screwdriver test (see below),

bluish/gray areas and if footprints remain on the lawn when

you walk across.

On the other hand, if you see patches that look similar to a

doughnut in the lawn with circular areas of yellow or brown

with a green center, it could be a sign of a necrotic ring spot.

This problem is associated with overwatering. Here are a few

tips from ALCC to ensure proper lawn maintenance during

the heat:

• Conduct a screwdriver test. Insert a screwdriver into areas

of the lawn that appear to need water. If the soil is hard,

the lawn needs water but if it drives through the soil

easily, there is sufficient moisture in the soil.

• Look carefully at your lawn for possible signs of disease.

If you’re not sure, consult with a pro who can diagnose

disease issues.

• Check out the sprinkler system to see if some areas of the

lawn are not being watered at all and adjust the sprinkler

heads to fix the coverage problem.

PG. 8 GV NEWSLETTER | AUGUST 2016


GOVERNMENT

• Avoid the temptation to apply more water. And when you

need to apply more water, use the cycle-and-soak method

of short watering cycles broken up by a rest period and

then another watering cycle later. This technique allows

water to soak into the soil without creating wasteful runoff.

ALCC recommends that to relieve heat stress on your lawn,

follow these mowing practices:

• Raise the mower blade to the highest setting and cut no

more than about 1/4 of the total grass height off the top.

When we leave the grass higher, it shades the soil to help

it retain moisture.

• Sharpen the mower blade regularly. A dull blade shreds

rather than cuts and grass blades that are shredded are

more stressed and open to diseases than when they are cut

cleanly.

• When you mow, leave the clippings on top of the lawn.

This also helps retain moisture and the clippings will

fertilize the lawn as they decompose. GV

GARDEN IN A BOX

WATER WISE TIPS FROM VILLAGE

RESIDENT KAREN CHAPMAN

My husband and I purchased and planted our first Garden In a

Box several years ago when our front yard included lawn. Now,

the front of our yard does not have a blade of grass. Instead,

we have a landscape of beautiful xeriscape perennial plants that

changes in shape, color and texture as different plants come

into bloom throughout the growing season.

Many of our previous

years’ Garden in a Box

plants have thrived and

expanded. However, this

year there were still a

few spots that needed to

be filled in as well as

areas where it made

sense to expand the

xeriscape gardens, including a garden in our back yard. Now

that back yard garden is almost completely filled in so next

year’s Garden in a Box can be used to expand the garden to

further reduce the back yard grass area.

The Rocky Mountain Retreat Garden in a Box purchased this

year had 28 plants including Rocky Mountain Columbine,

Tennessee Purple Coneflower, Rocky Mountain Penstemon,

European Pasque Flower, Evergreen Candytuft, Fringed Sage

and Native Blanket Flower. The mix of plants is well chosen for

a variety of colors and shapes. This is the first experience

planting Columbine and it has been wonderful to see it grow

quickly to about five times its original size; perhaps it will even

bloom this year.

The bees and butterflies love the beautiful flowers from our

mature plants. It will be enjoyable to see how the newest plants

develop and flower in the years to come.

PHASE I OF

GV MAINTENANCE

FACILITY AND

PD CRIME LAB

COMPLETED

IMPROVEMENTS AIMED

AT ENHANCING

SERVICE DELIVERY

Citizens can now benefit from even

greater service as a result of

improvements to Village operations

provided by Public Works, Parks,

Trails and Recreation and the Police

Department. The expansion and

reorganization of the existing

Maintenance Facility operations and

renovation of the Police Department

Crime Lab were planned and approved

by City Council in 2013 as part of the

Village’s annual Capital Improvement

Program (CIP) to address inadequate

space needs for operations and support

long term goals of departments. The

cost for these improvements were

$8,000,000.

“We pride ourselves in assuring we

have the highest level and quality of

services provided to our residents and

businesses,” said Jim Sanderson, City

Manager. “These improvements will

contribute to the safety, cleanliness

and overall appearance of our

community for the future.”

MAINTENANCE FACILITY

Before the improvements were

completed, the previous Maintenance

Facility was built in 1994 to house

park and street maintenance services

which included 37 regular employees,

19 seasonal workers, and maintenance

of 150 vehicles for all Village

operations. Due to the increase in the

levels of service and investment in

infrastructure by the Village starting in

1994 and continuing into the late

1990s, the maintenance facility

became home-base for all Public

Works and Parks maintenance services

including Engineering that was

relocated from City Hall. These

operations are responsible for 220 lane

miles of roadways, 193 acres of

developed parks, 43 miles of trails, 1.5

acres of floral beds, miles of drainage

systems, 254 acres of open space, and

53 acres of streetscape and medians.

Current service levels require work by

nearly 87 employees, 12 seasonal

workers, and maintenance of 251

vehicles for Village operations,

including the Police Department.

In 2008, the Village completed a study

to address current and future space

needs to support operations. The

results of the study prompted City

Council in 2009 to approve the

purchase of a two-acre parcel

containing an existing storage building

located directly to the west of the

PG. 10 GV NEWSLETTER | AUGUST 2016


GOVERNMENT

maintenance facility — the Emporia parcel — to allow for

expanded operations of the Maintenance Facility.

“Modifications to the Maintenance Facility were planned to

create a more productive and efficient work environment and

reflect the proper image of the Village,” said John Sheldon,

Director of Public Works.

Phase I of the Maintenance Facility modifications mainly

occurred to the Emporia Street parcel. Major areas that were

addressed included a new fleet maintenance building;

construction of a new sand and salt storage building for snow

and ice control materials; expanded material bins to allow for

bulk purchasing of materials such as mulch; and canopies for

Village equipment.

POLICE

DEPARTMENT

CRIME LAB

A well-equipped and

modernized crime

lab is a critical

element of the

Greenwood Village

Police Department’s

ability to solve

crimes. The previous

crime lab, built in

the 1980s, was

renovated as part of

the Maintenance

Facility project to

improve space needs

for police officers and staff and meet the 21st century

demands of policing.

The new crime lab now houses new state-of-the-art crime lab

equipment which can deliver forensic services such as the

processing of fingerprints; have a drying cabinet that is

specifically used to dry items that contain moisture or blood;

and have an area in the lab to take close up photographs of

evidence that may present items such as hairs, fibers, or

blood spatter. The new Crime Lab has improved the

timeframe of analysis of evidence by the Police Department

before forwarding to the Colorado Bureau of Investigations

(CBI) for further analysis. In addition, the new building has

triggered the Police Department’s capacity to work on cyber,

cellular technical and financial crimes.

The renovation also includes expanded space to

accommodate the secure processing, cataloging and storage of

all types of evidence; a secure area for customers to retrieve

any property items seized during investigations; a designated

vehicle processing bay for examination and inspection of any

vehicles taken for investigation; an identified area for police

officers to process property and evidence, and an alarm and

video monitoring system to monitor the facility 24-hours a

day.

“Our new crime lab and evidence facility is indicative of our

Police Department’s performance in our expertise and

professional recovery and examination of evidentiary

materials to aid in the investigation of criminal offenses in

Greenwood Village,” said Chief of Police John Jackson. “We

now have a crime lab that minimizes the potential to

compromise any evidence on the cases that we process and

ensures our officers now have a state-of-the-art resource to

help them do their jobs better to keep our citizens safe.”

These modifications to the Maintenance Facility and Police

Crime Lab were identified as Phase I of two phases planned

for improved facilities. Phase II of the project will include

renovation of the existing Maintenance Facility shop areas

and expansion of the administrative offices and improved

parking for guests and employees. At this time, funding for

construction of Phase II has yet to be determined and will

require City Council approval in the future. The entire

project is estimated to cost $16,000,000.

ENSURING A SAFE

community

The Greenwood Village Police Department works to protect residents and businesses from crime, but to effectively sustain a crime-free

environment requires an active, engaged, and aware community. Remember — the most important single act you can do is to be aware of

your surroundings at all times and call the Police to report crimes or suspicious activities! As an observer, if the situation doesn’t look or

feel right, it probably is not. By going with your instincts, your actions could help deter a crime in progress or save the life of a neighbor.

BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY

TRAVELING TO AND FROM SCHOOL

School Bus

• If your child’s school bus has lap/shoulder seat belts, make

sure your child uses one at all times when in the bus.

• Wait for the bus to stop before approaching it from the

curb.

• Do not move around on the bus.

• Check to see that no other traffic is coming before

crossing the street.

• Make sure to always remain in clear view of the bus driver.

• Tell your child not to bend down in front of the bus to tie

shoes or pick up objects, as the driver may not see him

before starting to move.

• Children should always board and exit the bus at locations

that provide safe access to the bus or to the school

building.

Cars

• All passengers should wear a seat belt and/or use an ageand

size-appropriate car safety seat or booster seat.

• All children younger than 13 years of age should ride in

the rear seat of vehicles. If you must drive more children

than can fit in the rear seat (when carpooling, for

example), move the front-seat passenger’s seat as far back

as possible and have the child ride in a booster seat if the

seat belts do not fit properly without it.

• Require seat belt use and limit the number of teen

passengers. Do not allow eating, drinking, cell phone

conversations or texting to prevent driver distraction; and

limit nighttime driving and driving in inclement weather.

Bicycles

• Always wear a bicycle helmet, no matter how short or

long the ride.

• Ride on the right, in the same direction as auto traffic.

• Use appropriate hand signals, and respect traffic lights and

stop signs.

• Wear bright colored clothing to increase visibility.

Walking To School

• Make sure your child’s walk to a school is a safe route with

well-trained adult crossing guards at every intersection.

Make sure your child walks to school on a safe route and always

with at least one other child.

• Carefully consider whether or not your child is ready to

walk to school without adult supervision.

• Brightly colored clothing will make your child more

visible to drivers.

• Teach your child never to talk to strangers or accept rides

or gifts from strangers. Remember, a stranger is anyone

you or your children don’t know well or don’t trust.

• Be sure that your child knows his or her home phone

number and address, your work number, the number of

another trusted adult and how to call 911 for emergencies.

BULLYING

When Your Child Is Bullied

• Help your child learn how to respond by looking the

bully in the eye, stand tall and stay calm, and walk away.

• Teach your child when and how to ask for help and make

friends with others.

• Alert school officials to the problems and work with them

on solutions.

• Make sure an adult who knows about the bullying can

watch out for your child’s safety and well-being when you

cannot be there.

When Your Child Is The Bully

• Be sure your child knows that bullying is never

OK.

• Set firm and consistent limits on your child’s

aggressive behavior.

• Be a positive role model, and use effective, nonphysical

discipline, such as loss of privileges.

• Develop practical solutions with the school

principal, teachers, counselors, and parents of the

children your child has bullied.

DRIVERS IN SCHOOL ZONES

• The Flashing Yellow Light, School Zone areas

indicate that traffic must slow down from the

beginning of the lights until the next speed

limit sign or signage that indicates the school

zone has ended. School Zone times vary, and it is

the driver’s responsibility to be aware and drive

according to the posted signs and lights.

• Fines are doubled in school zones.

• Stop for school buses. Colorado law dictates a

driver of a vehicle, upon meeting from either

direction any school bus which has stopped and

has activated its red flashing lights, is required to

stop the vehicle. Drivers do not need to stop for a

school bus upon meeting or passing a school bus

which is on a different roadway. School bus drivers

are authorized to report violators to the

appropriate law enforcement agency who may

issue a citation on the basis of the information

provided.

• Remember that the sun can obscure your vision

any time of the year. Use visors and sunglasses to

reduce glare and make it easier to see pedestrians.

• Pedestrians, once in a crosswalk, have the right

of way. If you maintain a safe speed for conditions

and foot traffic you should have plenty of time to

slow down and stop safely.

• When the traffic lights go to yellow is the time

to slow down and prepare to stop. Please don’t

drive to beat the lights. They are timed based on

the speed limits and traffic. When you rush one

light you often just get stopped at the next one.

• Be patient, be aware. Many people are distracted

in these hurried times. Make sure the intersection

is clear of people and traffic before going ahead,

even if you do have a green light.

• Right on Red. Where allowed, and not all

intersections are clear for right on red, the car at

the red light does not have the right of way. Cars

turning on arrows, or going with the flow of

traffic always have the right of way.

Drivers should be cautious when driving around schools and obey all

traffic regulations for the safety of students.

TORCHY’S TACOS

8505 East Arapahoe Road • www.torchystacos.com

Monday-Thursday 7 a.m.-10 p.m., Friday 7 a.m.-11 p.m., Saturday 8 a.m.-11 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m.-10 p.m.

From humble beginnings in 2006 in Austin, Texas, the

Torchy’s Tacos truck has expanded into an empire of over 30

restaurant venues located in three states and they just keep

getting better with age. The Greenwood Village location is

the upscale street tacos third location in Colorado. Torchy’s

Director of Marketing Brittany Platt cites the Greenwood

Village location as ideal because of its proximity to

I-25 and the Denver Tech Center and the active, familyoriented

residential communities of Greenwood Village.

The early menus were more experimental than established

culinary marvels. So whenever owner and originator Michael

Rypka heard his customers holler “damn” these tacos are

good they were added to the menu. Soon “Damn” Good

became the rally cry at the truck. The taco dream grew and

took on a life of its own with long lines and happy

customers. Today, every Torchy’s Tacos location is determined

to deliver on their “Damn” Good food promise.

Torchy’s serves plump tacos with a variety of fillings you can

only imagine in a taco and some you can’t. Step out of your

comfort zone and be bold when perusing the menu at

Torchy’s Tacos. Favorite Torchy’s Tacos include The

Wrangler, with scrambled eggs and potatoes with smoked

beef brisket, jack cheese and tomatillo sauce. Another

favorite taco for every appetite is the Trailer Park which

includes fried chicken, green chilies, lettuce, Pico de Gallo

and cheese on a flour tortilla with poblano sauce. You can

even get it “Trashy” by taking off the lettuce and adding

queso. Torchy’s offers a Darn Good Kids’ Menu with

variations on favorites like the Trailer Park and the Chicken

Fajita tacos. Unique creations just for kids are also available.

Since the beginning, the loyal customers of Torchy’s Tacos

have played a big part in the culture and history of the taco

restaurant — including their menu. Many of the current

offerings once started as Tacos of the Month, and were so

popular they were added to the menu. The tacos of the

month are an array of specialty tacos that are featured

throughout the year. Together with the taco of the month

and the taco for every appetite advertised on their menu

page, Torchy’s has a secret menu of seven delicious tacos.

Customers in the “know” can request a copy of the secret

menu. After reading this article, you’ll be in the know and

can order these secretive tacos for yourself.

Torchy’s is confident in the products they serve and the

people who deliver the products. If not regionally-sourced,

you can be sure it’s responsibly-sourced. Torchy’s works with

brands who share the philosophy that serving the best thing

is the right thing, and they are constantly striving to better

themselves.

The new Torchy’s in Greenwood Village also has a full bar

with house cocktails including signature margaritas, locally

brewed craft beers and rotating happy-hour specials. Your

server will be happy to explain that day’s full bar offerings.

Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 3 to 7 p.m.

Tacos are on the rise! In June 2015, Restaurant Business

Magazine released their annual future 50 — a list of the

industry’s movers and shakers that rank among the fastestcontinued
