GREAT TIMES AT

GREENWOOD VILLAGE DAY

We had another successful fun-filled event at this year’s

Greenwood Village Day. The event was even more special in

that our friends from the Greenwood Village Chick-fil-A

store were there to serve some delicious chicken sandwiches

and salads to nearly 5,000 residents. We also

had several vendors including Manna from

Heaven, Churn and Burn, Freddy’s Cuisine,

5280 Sliders, Simply Pizza, Happy Cones, and

Gigi’s Cupcakes in attendance to keep residents

fueled with energy throughout the day and

evening. All the food and desserts provided by

these vendors was simply delicious and enjoyed

by all.

Greenwood Village prides itself on offering a

prestigious quality of life to our citizens which

Ron Rakowsky includes special events like Greenwood Village

neighbors. This year’s Greenwood Village Day

was another amazing event and I know you, as well as myself,

look forward to what staff has planned for Greenwood

Village Day 2017.

DIRT MOVING SOON

FOR NEW WESTIN HOTEL

Light rail riders who previously used the surface parking lot

at the Arapahoe at Village Center Station will now be

protected from hail or snow as they use the parking garage to

access light rail due to construction of the new Westin Hotel

in our Village. The existing RTD parking garage contains

817 parking spaces. Accordingly, they will have plenty of

space for current riders. The surface parking lot at the

Arapahoe Light Rail Station was owned by Greenwood

Village and leased to RTD for parking until the Village sold

the land to the developer last September.

The Westin Hotel will be sited where the previous surface

parking lot was located. The proposed hotel will include 203

hotel rooms and

suites, a restaurant,

bar, coffee shop,

meeting space,

swimming pool, and

underground

parking. The Westin

property will be

located steps from

the pedestrian bridge

and parking structure

serving the RTD

Arapahoe at Village

Center light rail

station and the

Village Center retail

and office buildings.

The hotel will be

highly visible and

convenient to I-25,

making it easily

accessible for

motorists and light rail users.

Watch for more updates on progress of construction of the

Westin Hotel in future Newsletters.

ONE STOP

EFFICIENCY

SHOPPING

Let me share information about an

easy way to save energy and money,

sponsored by Xcel Energy. The

concept is simple: you schedule a visit

and a Prius V pulls up in front of your

house. An energy expert hops out to

help you identify opportunities where

the addition of a few simple measures

can add up to big savings. You choose

which energy saving items you want

installed and the expert does all the

work. Two hours later, your home is

more efficient. It’s called the Home

Energy Squad. It’s one-stop efficiency

shopping for anyone wanting to save

energy at home and get immediate

results.

Some of the recommendations include

installing weather stripping on exterior

doors, programmable thermostats,

value LEDs, high-efficiency

showerheads or faucet aerators.

The homeowner pays for the $75 trip

charge, and the rest — materials,

installation and labor — is covered.

A more than $200 value free.

To be eligible for the program, a

resident must be an Xcel Energy

electricity-only or electric and natural

gas customer. CLEAResult performs

the customer visits, in partnership

with Xcel Energy.

KILLER HABIT

HELP THE GVPD SPREAD THE WORD ON THIS DEADLY TRAFFIC BEHAVIOR

Greenwood Village Police, in coordination with the Colorado Department of

Transportation (CDOT), is asking citizens to help reduce distracted driving and avoid

the compulsion to grab their phones while driving. Why? Distracted driving is killing

people. Period.

In 2015, there were 68 Colorado traffic fatalities involving distracted drivers.

This dangerous habit is taking the lives of many who can’t kick their addiction of

using their phone to talk or text while driving.

So the next time you get in your vehicle, think about the statistics. It could happen

to you, your family member, a friend, or the other driver. Lock your phone away and

make it to your destination without once using or touching it. Kicking your distracted

driving habit could save a life…. And it could be yours.

For more information about distracted driving in Colorado, visit distraction.codot.gov.

CONSERVE WATER AND SAVE MONEY ON YOUR WATER BILLS

In 2016, Greenwood Village partnered with Denver Water as part of the Water Saver Partnership to educate residents on

ways to save water and money on their water bills while maintaining the beauty found in Village neighborhoods.

RAIN BARREL

UPDATE

As of August 10, rain

barrels are officially

allowed for single family

residents and multifamily

properties with four units

or less in Colorado. If you

are interested in

purchasing a rain barrel,

contact your local home

improvement or lawn and

gardening store, or search

online to order. Before

installing a rain barrel,

make yourself aware of the

proper maintenance and

care practices.

• Remove debris from your gutters prior to installing the

rain barrel and at least once per year after installation.

• Ensure that your rain barrel has a lid with a screen.

The screen will filter out leaves and organic material that

could impact the water quality. A screen will also keep

mosquitoes, squirrels and other pests out of your barrel.

• Place your rain barrel on a level surface. The most

common surface for a rain barrel is concrete blocks or

tiles.

• Do not use rainwater collected from a rain barrel for

potable purposes, not even for pets.

• Ensure algae growth is not occurring and inspect your rain

barrel weekly. If algae is growing, clean the rain barrel

with bleach and rinse thoroughly. This risk is more likely

in rain barrels that are clear. Dark barrels help to reduce

the risk of algae growth.

• During the winter, empty your rain barrel and store it

upside down or in a garage or storage unit.

• Ensure the spout and collected rainwater are not directed

toward the foundation of the home.

• If you are planning to leave town, do not collect rainwater

during that time or ensure you have a neighbor or friend

maintaining the barrel.

• Drain the barrel at least once every 10 days.

As with any water system, rain barrels require proper

attention and care. If you have further questions, you may

contact the Colorado Division of Water Resources (Office

of the State Engineer) for additional information at

303-866-3581.

DENVER’S FAMOUS DITCH

Open Houses Offer Chance To Share Ideas

On Protecting, Enhancing The High Line Canal

The High Line Canal and its trails are one of Denver’s most

cherished recreational assets.

PG. 10 GV NEWSLETTER | SEPTEMBER 2016


GOVERNMENT

The canal, a 71-mile irrigation ditch, was built in 1883 out

of a vision to bring water from the foot of the Rocky

Mountains to the dry plains northeast of Denver.

Denver Water purchased the canal in 1924 and still uses it

today to transport untreated water to about 70 customers for

landscaping and irrigation.

While the canal was once considered an engineering marvel,

it is no longer an efficient means of delivering water. About

70 percent of the water sent down the canal seeps into the

ground before it makes it to customers.

The canal’s evolution is why Denver Water is teaming up

with the High Line Canal Conservancy to develop a master

plan. Water delivery, trail maintenance, developing new uses

and creating a sustainable greenway are all part of the

discussion for Denver Water, the High Line Canal

Conservancy, the public and the 11 communities that border

the canal.

You can share your ideas about the future of the historic

canal and its greenway at upcoming community open houses,

sponsored by the conservancy:

FIT36 – ‘IT’S YOUR TIME’

8000 East Belleview Avenue #B80 in the Belleview Promenade • 720-501-4995 • www.FIT36fitness.com/denver-tech-center

Classes begin: 6 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 6 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Friday; 8-10 a.m. Saturday; and 8:30-9:30 a.m. Sunday

Have you ever needed to sprint to an important meeting,

run through a crowded airport to catch a connecting flight,

perform yard work or have to move heavy furniture? How

about having to load and unload groceries in and out of your

car and home, climb a flight or two of stairs, wrestle nonstop

with the kids or grandkids in the back yard, or do

laundry? FIT36® will alter the way you become fit for these

activities and so much more, even if you have never

competed in a single sports activity . . . and all under the

guidance of expert trainers, and completed in just 36

minutes!

“We’re much more than a gym; we are a place to efficiently

meet your fitness objectives to positively impact your life!”

exclaimed Abe Dispennette, owner of FIT36® Denver Tech

Center. Abe (Retired Military) and Steve Cronin (Former

Professional Soccer Player), combined their experience to

introduce a brand new concept gym that would give

individuals the opportunity to move to their next level of

fitness . . . and all in a fun and challenging way!

FIT36® was founded after initially opening first as “FIIT

Werx” in Denver during 2013. The owners wanted the

workout to be compatible with a complete range of

functional movements. The success of FIT36® is entirely

based upon an efficient class workout. All classes are small,

contributing to personal attention to correct form. Members

from pre-teen to their 70s schedule 2-3 workouts per week to

maximize individual abilities. And all classes utilize HIIT

(High Intensity Interval Training) by nature and can burn

calories not only during the workout, but often afterward,

called “afterburn.”

“Our workouts constantly change and push you to the best

of your ability,” said Abe, who emphasizes that his passion for

fitness is only matched by his desire to change people’s lives.

Being that the Village community is so active and vibrant,

the FIT36® vision was a perfect match for the Village

lifestyle. The program appeals to the Village community of

stay-at-home moms, kids, business owners, athletes, and

everyone in between. “We train to adapt to new demands,

promote correct posture and movement, rehabilitate injury,

and develop broad and inclusive fitness to both look and feel

great,” said Abe. And the small class size and atmosphere are

high-energy and upbeat with motivating music, highly

qualified and certified trainers and state of the art equipment.

FIT36® workouts take members through 12 functional

stations twice, performing the movement at each station for

one minute, followed by 30-seconds of rest, creating a 36-

minute workout. The more a workout can be completed in

an anaerobic zone, the more the workout can improve

endurance and performance. Building strength AND burning

calories at an impressive rate is accomplished using the most

advanced science of fitness. By focusing on strength,

athleticism and stamina the weight loss is accomplished

through calorie burn while making you stronger through

intense functional movements. Heart rate monitors are

available to ensure the workout is being completed in the

Seattle Style Teriyaki Concept

Offers Bowls of Fresh Ingredients

by Amy Jewett Sampson,

Board Member

Twenty years ago, Qing Hammell

came to the United States as an MBA

student from China with nothing.

Through hard work and the

friendships she made, Qing pursued a

successful financial career. She wants

to give back to a country that gave her

an opportunity to pursue the dream of

owning a restaurant.

“During our first visit to Greenwood

Village two years ago, we were deeply

impressed by the burgeoning

economic activity, well-planned

infrastructure, and the growth

potential of the city,” explained Qing

Hammell, owner of Teriyaki Madness.

“We had always hoped that we could

be part of the prospering economic

activity and plan to be more involved

in network opportunities organized by

the Chamber and hope to eventual

expand our catering business.”

Teriyaki Madness is a fresh Asian grill

that serves made-to-order bowls of

fresh, natural and gluten-free

ingredients, served tableside in 5-7

minutes. All chicken dishes use fresh

(never frozen), 100 percent all-natural

chicken that is marinated and grilled

with house-made sauce.

EMERALD ASH

BORER DETECTED

IN LONGMONT

CITIZENS ENCOURAGED

TO CONTINUE

INSPECTION OF

ASH TREES FOR

INFESTED BEETLE

In June, the invasive tree pest emerald

ash borer (EAB) was confirmed in the

City of Longmont. This confirmation

comes after the infested beetle was first

detected in two trees in the northeast

section of Boulder in 2013. It is

unknown whether the insect arrived in

Longmont by natural spread or via

accidental human transport, such as

firewood or other raw ash material.

The Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) is an

exotic green beetle that was discovered

in southeastern Michigan in the

summer of 2002. It is spreading

throughout the eastern United States

and Canada and has destroyed

millions of ash trees in these areas. The

adult beetle nibbles on ash foliage and

causes little damage, however, the

larvae feed on the inner bark of the

ash trees, disrupt the tree’s ability to

transport water and nutrients which

results in significant damage. The

beetle is an extremely slow mover and

cannot fly fast or far, however, it

moves more quickly when aided by

humans moving infested firewood or

trees. All ash trees, with the exception

of the mountain-ash, are susceptible to

the EAB.

There are an estimated 2,000 ash trees

within the public spaces of the Village.

Staff continually inspects the ash trees

throughout the Village. A few select

ash trees will be treated once the

Emerald Ash Borer is found closer to

the Village. Current recommendations

are to treat the trees if Emerald Ash

Borer is found within five miles. If an

ash tree is found to be infested with

EAB, the tree will be removed and

replaced with a different species of

tree. Future tree planting by the

Village will continue; however, ash

trees will not be utilized. For any

questions regarding the Village’s urban

forest and EAB, please contact Kurt

Nielsen, Public Works Supervisor, at

303-708-6158.

PUBLIC AWARENESS

REQUESTED

The public is requested to be aware of

the EAB and what you can do if you

have ash trees on your property.

1. Determine now if you

have any ash trees.

Identifying features of ash trees

include compound leaves with 5 to

9 leaflets; leaflets and branches

growing directly opposite from one

another; and diamond-shaped bark

ridges on mature trees.

2. If you have an ash tree,

start planning.

Decide if the overall health of the

tree merits treatment or if it would

be best to remove and replace it

with a different species. If you

aren’t sure, contact a certified

arborist. If pesticide treatment is

the preferred option, the applicator

must be licensed by the CDA as a

Commercial Pesticide Applicator.

3. Recognize signs of

EAB infestation.

Property

owners

with ash

trees

should be

on the

lookout for

thinning

of upper

branches

and twigs,

loss of

leaves, D-

shaped 1/8

inch holes

on the bark, vertical bark splitting

or increased woodpecker activity.

Report suspect trees by calling the

CSU Extension Office in Arapahoe

County at 303-730-1920 or

Colorado Department of

Agriculture at 1-888-248-5535.

4. Be aware of EAB imposters.

Other insects like lilac/ash borer,

ash bark beetle and flat-headed

apple tree borer may look like EAB

or cause similar tree symptoms. For

more information, visit

eabcolorado.com.

5. Help prevent further

spread of EAB.

Do not transport ash or any

hardwood firewood, or any other

untreated ash wood products, to

other locations. Boulder County

and some surrounding areas are

under a federal EAB quarantine,

allowing for stiff fines for those

who move untreated wood from

the area.

identification, the symptoms of EAB

and treatment options, visit

‘STRUCTURED’ OPENING

RECEPTION AT THE CURTIS CENTER

Local art lovers filled the Curtis Arts &

Humanities Center to celebrate the opening

reception of “Structured.” The exhibit showcases

four Colorado artists that seek to measure the

physical and intangible dimensions of a place by

taking architecture as their subject matter. The

exhibit features three painters Sharon Ferder

(Denver), Sarah McKenzie (Boulder) and Rick

Dula (Denver) and one photographer Dallas

Parkins (Denver).

The exhibit seeks to raise the public awareness of

the built environment that we all inhabit and help

remind you that you too can shape that

environment. Local architect Dan O’Brien from

Presence Design Group said of the exhibit,

“Architecture as an object can become emblematic

— a structure can become the symbol for a

neighborhood, an institution, an industry, a city.

This is usually an image of a structure from afar.

Architecture as an object can also work simply as

an abstract visual experience.” The exhibit

presents architecture in many states and includes

several large scale, visually captivating pieces.

THROUGH THE
