HOW SAFE ARE

COMMERCIAL

TRUCKS ON

THE ROAD?

While driving, you may not pay much

attention to commercial

trucks on the road, but

would rather avoid

driving next to or behind

one based on your

driving preference. Your

decision to avoid driving

close to commercial

trucks may be a good one

as some of these trucks

are being removed from

roadways for a variety of

reasons — all part of a

Village priority initiative

to enhance the safety of

the community.

In September, the Police Department

launched another weight and

inspection checkpoint in cooperation

with Colorado State Patrol Mobile

Port Units from Limon, Fort Morgan

and Golden. The purpose was to

identify and contact unsafe

commercial vehicles. Out of 32

commercial vehicles processed through

the checkpoint, there were 71

commercial vehicle violations issued,

including 19 out of service violations

which required several commercial

vehicles to be parked and declared

out of operation. Some of the major

out of service violations included a

non-working breakaway trailer brake

switch that would prevent the trailer

brakes from applying if the trailer

broke free from the tow vehicle.

Some of the drivers did not have a

commercial driver’s license. The

most severe safety issue was a 7000

pound overweight gravel truck with

a trailer that had a blown tire on a

drive axle and air brake air

malfunction.

Research has shown that one

overweight truck can cause the same

amount of damage to the roadway as

9,600 passenger cars. These trucks

were accidents waiting to happen. It is

disturbing to hear about these

violations, but rest assured your Police

Department has made it a priority to

enforce these and future commercial

truck violators using our roadways. In

my mind, there is no question that

your Police Department may have

prevented a tragedy as a result of their

proactive efforts.

KUDOS TO

OUTSTANDING

LIQUOR LICENSE

HOLDERS

Having a liquor license is a privilege.

This privilege requires the license

holder to guard against a decision that

may result in a devastating impact on

an entire community. Businesses and

their servers undertake a high level of

responsibility to ensure the safe and

legal delivery of alcohol to their

patrons. Special care in the

distribution of alcohol must be taken

by all liquor licensees and their

employees to safeguard the lives of not

only their patrons and the general

public, but also the future success of

their business. License holders are

responsible for educating their

employees on how to read IDs to

determine the purchaser’s age.

The Police Department recently

conducted a liquor compliance check

to identify establishments in

Greenwood Village not adhering to

Colorado State and local laws

pertaining to the sale of alcoholic

beverages including the sale or service

to underage persons. During the

compliance check, detectives monitor

establishments for liquor violations.

There were three establishments that

received a liquor violation, while the

following establishments passed with

flying colors. Congratulations on

behalf of the Village! We thank you for

making great efforts to keep alcohol

out of the hands of underage children.

SPOTLIGHT

ON

GREENWOOD

VILLAGE

The September 12 City

Council meeting was an

evening of special

recognition for our

Police Department.

Several members were

recognized for their work

in law enforcement by

Arapahoe County,

including Commissioner (and former

Greenwood Village Mayor) Nancy

Sharpe and Sheriff David Walcher.

Congratulations to Village Police

Commander Joe Gutgsell for his work

on the Not One More Child initiative

with Arapahoe County. This coalition

is made up of hospital workers,

educators and school officials, health

experts, child welfare professionals,

attorneys, nurses, church and

community leaders, members of the

Coroner’s office and law enforcement

officers who work together to prevent

child abuse and neglect. If you believe

a child is in immediate danger, please

call 9-1-1 or you may call

303-636-1750 or 1-844-CO-4-KIDS.

In addition, Sheriff Walcher

commended the following Police

Department members for their work

in the active shooter situation that

occurred in Centennial in April. As

you may recall, it was in a Centennial

neighborhood where one man was

killed and two women were injured.

The GVPD was recognized for their

quick response in assisting the Sheriff’s

Office resulting in the swift

apprehension of the suspect and

control of the situation. It was a

horrific event that occurred very close

to home, but I believe that the event

would have escalated further but for

the highly trained response and

assistance by the following members of

the Police Department:

Chief John Jackson

Commander Dustin Varney

Sgt. Ewan Skouse

Sgt. Darrel Guadnola

Nikki Bray — Criminalist

Mary Sansing — 9-1-1 Technician

Officer Mark Dean

Officer Nick Pfeifer

Officer Matthew Hopkins

Officer Matthew Williams

Officer Scott Thompson

Officer Bryan Stuebinger

Officer Curtis Krueger

Detective Tom Fanta

Melissa Madsen — Victim Advocate

Coordinator

Thank you all for making a difference

and for your sacrifices in keeping the

community safe! GV

GOT DRUGS?

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION

DRUG TAKE BACK DAY

Saturday, October 22, 2016

10 a.m.-2 p.m. at City Hall

On Saturday, October 22, 2016, The

Drug Enforcement Administration

(DEA) will coordinate a collaborative

effort with the Greenwood Village

Police Department and other local law

enforcement agencies to remove

potentially dangerous controlled

substances from every household’s

medicine cabinets. Collection activities

will take place from 10 a.m. through 2

p.m. at Greenwood Village City Hall

parking lot, 6060 South Quebec

Street. Police Officers will be available

in the parking lot at City Hall so

citizens can simply drive up and drop

off their unused prescription drugs.

The National Take-Back Day provides

an opportunity for the public to

surrender expired, unwanted, or

unused pharmaceutical controlled

substances and other medications for

destruction. These drugs are a

potential source of supply for illegal

use and an unacceptable risk to public

health and safety.

Here are some guidelines for this oneday

effort intended to bring national

focus to the issue of increasing

pharmaceutical controlled substance

abuse.

• The program is anonymous.

• Controlled, non-controlled, and

over the counter substances may be

dropped off.

• All solid dosage pharmaceutical

product and liquids in consumer

containers, with the exception of

chemotherapy drugs, may be

accepted.

• Liquid products, such as cough

syrup, should remain sealed in their

original container.

• Prescription and over the counter

solid dosage medications, e.g.

tablets and capsules will be

accepted.

• Intravenous solutions, injectables,

GOVERNMENT

and syringes/needles will not be

accepted due to potential hazard

posed by blood-borne pathogens.

• Illicit substances such as marijuana

or methamphetamine are not a part

of this initiative, but can be dropped

off at the Police Department at any

time for disposal.

COMMISSION

MEETING

OCTOBER 18, 2016

On September 20, the

Planning and Zoning

Commission received public

comment and closed the

public hearing on the

Orchard Station Subarea.

The Commission will

continue their deliberations

at the October 18

Commission meeting.

At the Monday, October 3, 2016, City Council meeting,

the Greenwood Village City Council approved

the following motion:

If the Planning and Zoning Commission makes a

recommendation to City Council to adopt an amendment to

the Comprehensive Plan for the Orchard Station Subarea,

public education, information and input meetings will be

held in each Council District before the plan is heard by

City Council.

These meetings will be held in January 2017.

Meeting dates, times and locations will be published

in the November Newsletter.

The Orchard Station Subarea is a

proposed amendment to the

Comprehensive Plan. The Planning

and Zoning Commission is

responsible for providing a

recommendation to City Council on

proposed modifications to the

Comprehensive Plan. The Orchard

Station Subarea is located north of

Orchard Road and west of Interstate

25 in the vicinity of the Orchard

Light Rail Station. The goal of the

subarea is to support redevelopment

in proximity to the Orchard Light

Rail Station to create a mix of office,

residential, and retail land uses with

a network of public spaces. The

draft Orchard Station Subarea is

available at www.greenwood

Plan is a guiding document. Any

future redevelopment proposals of

the properties within the outlined

Subarea would require approval of

development plans.

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.

RAKE AND ROLL

October is an important time to help prepare your landscape

and irrigation system for the cold months ahead. Here are

some tips to ensure your yard is ready to weather the winter:

• Take a rake to your lawn. Use the leaves you gather to

create compost or cover cold-sensitive perennials.

• This is a good time to do a round of tree, shrub and

perennial pruning to promote blooming and control

growth. Shred the removed plant material to top off your

compost piles.

• If you haven’t yet, dewater your sprinkler system to avoid

a freeze-thaw-freeze cycle, which can create cracks and

lead to leaks. Turn off the water, drain valves and use

compressed air to blow remaining water out of lines.

• Garden hoses should be disconnected, drained and rolled

up for storage. While you’re at it, drain outdoor faucets

and exposed pipe as added protection against freezerelated

damage.

INDOOR REBATES

Fall is also a great time to focus on indoor water

conservation. Denver Water offers up to $150 per

WaterSense certified toilet that uses 1.1 gallon per flush or

less. Rebate rules, a list of eligible toilet models and other

information can be found at www.denverwater.org/rebates.

Please note that if you have had 3 rebates at your residence in

the past 10 years, you will not be eligible for another toilet

rebate.

LEAD POISONING PREVENTION:

REDUCE YOUR FAMILY’S RISK

From its mountainous source to the treated purity at your

tap, Denver Water takes water quality very seriously. Because

National Lead Poisoning Prevention Week falls in October,

autumn is a good

time to talk

about lead.

Lead is a

naturally

occurring metal

that was used for

many years in paints, plumbing and other products found in

and around homes. The Environmental Protection Agency

has determined that lead accumulation in the body can cause

significant health impacts, especially for children and

pregnant women.

While lead in tap water is rarely the single cause of lead

poisoning, it can increase a person’s total lead exposure over

time.

Although there is no lead in the water sent to your home by

Denver Water, lead can get into water as it moves through

customers’ lead-containing household plumbing or service

lines.

If you are concerned, you can request a lead test from Denver

Water. You can also hire a professional to test whether your

service line is made of lead. If it is, we encourage you to have

it replaced.

You can get tips to reduce risk and request a water quality test

for lead at denverwater.org/Lead. Learn more about lead

poisoning prevention at cdc.gov/Nceh/Lead. GV

LEAF REMOVAL

As we enter into the fall season, keeping Greenwood Village

clean will continue to be a priority. To assist with these

activities, we ask that you do not place loose leaves or yard

debris in the street as our sweepers are not equipped to pick

up large piles of leaves. Moreover, this debris can be wind

blown or inappropriately washed into the storm systems and

waterways of the Village. Instead, please look to other

options to dispose of this debris.

• Arrange for your lawn care provider to remove the leaves

when performing your yard service.

• Bag your leaves in compostable paper yard waste bags and

place them out with your weekly trash pick up. These

bags of leaves will end up in the landfill and paper is

preferred over plastic which will never break down and is

bad for the environment no matter what its destination.

Republic Services has no limit as to how many bags of

leaves they will pick up; however, keep in mind if some

bags are left at the curb they will be returning once they

have unloaded their truck.

Ace Hardware Cherry Hills Marketplace at University

Boulevard and Orchard Road has teamed up with the

City of Greenwood Village to provide residents with

FREE compostable paper yard waste bags. Use the

provided coupon or visit www.acelittletoncherryhills.com

to download your free coupon. Each resident will be

eligible for a free 5-pack, while supplies last during the

month of October. For more information,

please contact Ace Hardware Cherry Hills Marketplace at

5910 S. University, Suite A-17, Greenwood Village,

720-974-1080.

• Recycle your leaves at Village Greens Park. Leaves can be

dropped off loose or in bags between October 3 and

November 4, 2016, in the dedicated area of the north

parking lot any day of the week. This option is

environmentally friendly as staff uses the leaves to amend

the soil, creating a rich environment for plant growth.

It does not impact the landfill and it is cost effective.

No bags are needed and you do not have to wait until

your trash day to dispose of them.

For more information, please contact Public Works at

303-708-6100. GV

WHY CAN’T I SWEEP MY LEAVES OR

GRASS CLIPPINGS INTO THE STREET?

Please do not rake or blow leaves,

grass or other trash into the

street. The street sweeping

equipment is not able to handle

limbs, branches or large quantities

of leaves and grass and spreads

these materials around the street. Leaves and grass are natural

but when it rains, these materials on streets and sidewalks can

wash into storm drains and eventually lead to Village

waterways such as streams and ponds. These materials over

fertilize the water and encourage harmful aquatic plants and

algae to thrive, which has a lasting negative impact on water

quality, local ecology and recreational use of our waterways

and is a form of stormwater pollution. Just like we would ask

you to not throw trash in the street, it is the same for leaves.

VILLAGE CENTER

DEVELOPMENT

CHARTER

COMMUNICATIONS

TO OCCUPY

FINAL OFFICE TOWER

A groundbreaking celebration was held

on October 4, 2016, for the

construction on the third and final

phase of the award-winning Village

Center Station mixed use development

in Greenwood Village. The last phase

of this development is a 306,000

square foot, 12 story, Class A office

tower that will be 100 percent

occupied by Charter

Communications.

Mayor Ron Rakowsky spoke at the

groundbreaking ceremony about this

new addition to Greenwood Village,

“We are ecstatic to have Charter

Communications as the tenant in this

remarkable new office building, as it

will benefit not only Greenwood

Village, but also Cherry Creek Unified

School District, Arapahoe County, and

South Metro Fire Rescue.”

Also in attendance at the

groundbreaking were representatives

from Charter Communications, who

are very enthusiastic about the location

of their new home. “This state-of-theart

workplace will be well suited to

support a wide range of business

purposes including the design and

development work powering all of

Charter’s products and services,” said

Rich DiGeronimo, Executive Vice

President of Product and Strategy for

Charter. “Charter has made a multimillion

dollar investment in the

Denver

community, and

in addition to

its already large

corporate

presence, plans

to add over 800

new high tech

jobs in the

coming years.”

The new

Charter

Building will

complete the

three phase,

approximately

900,000 square

foot Village

Center Station

development.

The office

tower along

with a 1,221

space parking

structure and an

additional

18,000 square

feet of

office/retail

space is located

between the

recently

completed 11

story CoBank

Headquarters

and the nine story multitenant Village

Center Station 1 building (VCS I).

Both were previously completed by

Shea Properties and are fully occupied.

Greenwood Village City Manager Jim Sanderson and Mayor Ron

Rakowsky attended the groundbreaking for the third and final

phase of Village Center Station mixed use development.

Peter Culshaw noted, “The three

building campus, adjacent to the plaza

is a realization of the original master

plan. We have been true to a vision of

creating a modern office campus

energized by a common outdoor

amenity and gathering place with

ground level retail. We are proud to

see the last piece of the puzzle being

developed.”

The main lobby of each building in

Village Center Station opens onto a

public plaza which was designed to

create an outdoor amenity for office

users, retail patrons and the general

public. The plaza boasts lively retail

with patio dining and three dramatic

water features which are set to music

and lighting displays. The plaza also

creates additional outdoor

meeting spaces with multiple

formal and informal seating

areas all with Wi-Fi connectivity.

For public events there is ample

space to accommodate various

types and even performances.

The daily function of the plaza

however, is to provide a

pedestrian connection from the

office towers to the onsite light

rail stop. A grand stair within

the plaza leads people to and

from the station while a clock

and information tower provides

travelers with weather updates

and breaking news. The plaza

and the energy it brings to the

Arapahoe at Village Center

Station Light Rail stop, has

made this development one of

the best TOD locations in

Denver.

Village Center Station’s prominent

location and site amenities are

complimented by the architecture of

the buildings. The three building

campus has been designed to create

structures that relate to one another

through the use of similar materials.

This strategy has created a unique

identity for each building while

maintaining a cohesive masterplan.

The architecture for all three buildings

in Village Center has incorporated a

distinguished mix of precast concrete

from building one, as well as a modern

glazing system which is celebrated in

high impact areas similar to what was

used on the CoBank building. The

combination of these materials will

stitch the campus together and

complete the vision for this 13.5 acre

master planned development.

MARIA EMPANADA

8000 East Belleview Avenue • 303-221-9013 • www.mariaempanada.com

Monday-Friday 7:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-2 p.m., Closed Sunday

Owning her own restaurant in the United States is a dream

come true for Chef-Owner Lorena Cantarovici. Lorena’s

dream of owning and operating her own restaurant began to

come to fruition when she left her banking position in

Buenos Aires and relocated to Denver 12 years ago. She

worked in several different restaurants located in the Denver

Tech Center and her passion for becoming a restaurateur

took-off as she fell in love with the business. Lorena began

her culinary journey by starting a catering business eight

years ago using her mother’s recipe for authentic, reasonably

priced, Argentinian empanadas.

Since Lorena’s humble beginnings in the catering business,

she has perfected the menu currently being offered at the two

Maria Empanada locations. After opening and enjoying

success at the original location on South Broadway located in

the Platte Park neighborhood of Denver, Maria Empanada

has expanded to Greenwood Village in the Belleview

Promenade Shopping Center. Lorena says “her familiarity

with the restaurant scene in the Denver Tech Center led her

to choose the Greenwood Village location.” She further stated

“that the mix of tenants in the Belleview Promenade

Shopping Center complement each other in attracting the

surrounding business and residential communities of

Greenwood Village.”

Chefs in most every region of the world bake a savory

concoction of either meat and/or vegetables wrapped in

pastry. In Argentina, this is known as an empanada. Maria

Empanada is the original atelier of artisanal empanadas. That

means there is nothing fast about the craftsmanship that goes

in to each empanada. Each one is formed by hand. The

result: A buttery, light and flaky savory pastry that is truly a

work of culinary art. The most popular breakfast offering is

the Italian Sausage empanada, which consist of eggs, potato,

cheese, salsa and Italian sausage. Popular lunch and dinner

empanadas include the Beef Classico and the Chicken

Classico, which include peppers and egg.

On a typical day, 16 varieties of empanadas are stocked in the

glass case of the restaurant. “Traditional” empanadas are the

most popular item on the menu. These can be stuffed with

meat, vegetables or a combination of the two. A “vegan

veggie” empanada is also available. “Specialty” empanadas are

seasonal and are filled with only the freshest ingredients

available. The fillings at Maria Empanada are expertly spiced

and well portioned. The perfect add-on to these empanadas

are home-made salsas available for a nominal price. Several

sweet variations of empanadas are offered. Each variety of

empanada is sealed with a slightly different seam to indicate

what the filling is. Two to three empanadas will satisfy the

hungriest of appetites.

Traditionally, empanadas are eaten by hand. To encourage

this practice, Maria Empanada has installed an automatic

hand washing machine in the serving area of the restaurant.

In a span of less than 20 seconds, your hands are washed,

rinsed and a light moisturizer applied. Give it a swirl on your

visit to Maria Empanada.

In addition to empanadas, Maria Empanada offers two other

specialties, Tartas and Spanish Tortillas. Tartas are savory pies

filled with a variety of vegetables and meats. They are

blended with organic eggs and herbs inside of their own

“We are thrilled that the Foundation

has partnered with the Chamber again

this year,” says John Herbers, president

of the DTC|Greenwood Village

Chamber of Commerce. “It is a

privilege to donate a portion of our

event’s proceeds to helping children

achieve their full potential through the

many programs and initiatives the

Foundation supports.”

In its 16th year, the Taste event will

bring in more than 40 restaurants,

vintners, craft brewers and distilleries

from the area to showcase their menu.

The event offers an “exclusive taste” of

some of the area’s most popular

Foundation’s Cardboard Challenge

bridges the educational environment

with the business community to

provide hands-on experiential learning

The film that inspired the

Foundation’s Cardboard Challenge

centers on a 9-year-old boy from Los

Angeles who created an arcade made

entirely out of cardboard. The project

and the film caught the attention of

way to encourage creativity and better

people. Although similar to a Tarta, Spanish Tortillas do not

use any pastry crust and typically use various vegetables and

cheeses blended with organic eggs. Spanish Tortillas serve 4 to

6 people and are gluten free. The most popular dessert item on

the menu is the Dulce de leche Roll Cake which is a caramel

infused pastry.

The beverage offerings feature coffee, yerba mate and fresh

squeezed orange juice. To accompany any meal, there is also a

selection of beer and wine on tap, as well as bottled beer and

wine from South America and Spain. The wine on tap is

served in pinquinos (penguin-shaped wine pitchers).
