THIS HOLIDAY

SEASON . . .

Wishing you and your family a happy

and joyful holiday season. It’s that

special time of year when

we gather with our

friends and family to

appreciate the many

diverse celebrations that

occur during the month

of December. On behalf

of Greenwood Village, we

wish you the gift of love,

the gift of peace, and the

gift of happiness this

holiday season.

Ron Rakowsky

rrakowsky@ As you start your holiday

greenwoodvillage.com shopping and engage in

303-486-5741 special meals, we ask that

you shop and dine in

Greenwood Village this holiday

season. Here are some very important

reasons why:

• An array of choice for any

lifestyle. The Village is home to an

array of service oriented businesses,

specialty shops and homegrown

businesses with unique items for

all ages.

• Our sales taxes are lower! When

you shop in the Village, you pay

less sales tax. Our sales tax rate is

actually lower than most metro

area cities.

• Support your local government

services. Of the 7.25% sales tax

you pay on purchases in the

Village, 3% comes back to your

community which makes up a

significant portion of our general

fund revenues. The general fund

provides funding for services such

as police protection, parks and

recreation programs, street

maintenance, and road

improvements.

• Support local merchants and

their employees. Business owners

and their employees pay taxes in

the Village. These businesses donate

to local charities and organizations

and provide for our community in

many other ways. By shopping and

dining locally, you contribute to the

economic growth of the business,

thus contributing to the economic

vitality of our local economy.

You can find more information on our

local businesses online at

www.greenwoodvillage.com.

HELP US WITH

FOOD AND SOCKS

FOR THE LESS

FORTUNATE

This holiday season, Greenwood

Village, in partnership with Golden

Hearts of Greenwood and the Sock It

To Em Sock Campaign, is collecting

new and used socks, as well as nonperishable

food items for the homeless

and families that are less fortunate and

may be struggling in this economy for

various reasons. Cases of food are

needed and the following items are

requested: 100% boxed juice drinks;

canned vegetables; canned soups;

canned tuna and chicken; canned fruit

and fruit cups; all types of pasta;

canola and olive oil; peanut butter;

canned kidney, black and pinto beans;

oatmeal; cereals; spaghetti sauce;

crackers; canned chili, canned beef

stew; dry milk, evaporated milk, and

boxed shelf stable milk; healthy snacks

like granola bars, nuts and dried fruit;

and any other non-perishable food

items that would feed children and

families including meals for the

holiday.

Making a donation of food and socks

is a wonderful way of giving back and

can help our children appreciate what

they have when families join together

for a heartwarming task like this one.

Please drop off socks and food to City

Hall, 6060 South Quebec Street or the

Maintenance Facility, 10001 East

Costilla Avenue through December

31. Socks will delivered to the

homeless and all food will be given to

organizations that serve the south

Denver area. Let’s make a difference

together.

DR. HARRY BULL

NAMED

STATE’S TOP

SUPERINTENDENT

Congratulations to Superintendent

of Cherry Creek School District

Dr. Harry Bull for his designation as

the state’s top superintendent for 2017

by the Colorado Association of School

Executives. Dr. Bull was commended

for his commitment to excellence for

all students, his tireless advocacy work

and his leadership in the fight for

adequate school funding across the

state. Dr. Bull has been Cherry Creek’s

Superintendent since 2013 after

decades spent in the district as teacher,

principal and administrator.

I’ve had the privilege of interacting

with Dr. Bull on numerous occasions

and I can attest that this gentleman is

a true leader and advocate for our

children and public education. His

resume is very impressive, and his

accomplishments and commitment

to excellence go above and beyond

status quo. I want to share a published

quote he gave upon receiving his

award. This will give you some insight

about his character and the type of

leader he is.

“I’m truly honored, I’m humbled and

I’m a little overwhelmed. I’m still

trying to get my head around this. I’m

blessed to have the opportunity to

serve as the superintendent of Cherry

Creek Schools,” Bull said. “What this

MAYOR RON reports

continued from page 3

means for me is that there’s a recognition statewide about the

work that goes on inside of the district every single day. I’m

the person who gets the name on the plaque — I get that —

but this is really about the work that our teachers do in the

classroom, our staff that works with kids every day, the

building leadership team and the leadership at central office.

“It’s about the people,” Bull added.

UPDATED RECREATION

REIMBURSEMENT POLICY

One of the great benefits of living in Greenwood Village is

you get paid to play as part of the Village’s Recreation

Reimbursement program. The program offers recreation

reimbursement to residents of up to $500 per primary

residence annually. In a nutshell, the Village reimburses you,

up to $500 per year for activities offered by an approved

agency including golf at a municipal golf course, membership

at Greenwood Athletic Club, youth sports through nonprofit

youth sport agencies and more. Agencies must be

within the Denver Regional Council of Governments

(DRCOG) area and includes municipal and special

recreation districts such as South Suburban Parks and

Recreation District and Metropolitan Districts such as the

Greenwood Athletic Club Metropolitan District and

Sundance Hills Metropolitan District.

I want to make you aware of a change City Council adopted

regarding how the program is administered by staff. Effective

December 1, reimbursement checks will be mailed to the

residential address listed on the form; checks can no longer

be picked up at City Hall. This will help ensure the

requester is a current resident of the address submitted. In

addition, reimbursement requests must be submitted for the

year in which the payment was made, not the year in which

the activity takes place if different. Annual memberships are

also reimbursed for the year in which payment was made

and are not eligible for further reimbursement until the

RAMBLE WITH RON

Due to the fall and winter seasons, Ramble with Ron will be

suspended until the spring. If you have some ideas or

suggestions about living or working in Greenwood Village that

you would like to share with Mayor Ron Rakowsky, send him

an email at rakowsky@greenwoodvillage.com or call the

Mayor’s Office at 303-486-5745.

annual membership is renewed the following year. The

exception being annual membership (12 months paid in

advance) that is paid in December to take advantage of a

membership sale for the following year shall be applied to

the following year.

Don’t forget — the deadline for submittal of all 2016 receipts

for reimbursement requests will be accepted until 5 p.m. on

Tuesday, January 17, 2017.

We hope you and your families enjoy this great benefit as a

resident of Greenwood Village. Additional information is

available on Page 23 of this Newsletter. For questions related

to the program or learn how to request a reimbursement,

please call Parks, Trails, and Recreation at 303-486-5773,

MAKING A difference

OUR 2016 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

In 2016, the City Council committed the necessary financial resources to continue to deliver the high quality services to our

residents and business community. These services include police protection, road construction, street maintenance, snow and ice

control, trash removal, large item pickup, recreation reimbursement program, recreation and arts programs, and a multitude of

other services. In addition to our quality service delivery, provided below are some of our major accomplishments Village staff

achieved during 2016.

KEEPING YOU SAFE FROM

DANGER AND INJURY

Phase I Of Maintenance Facility

And PD Crime Lab Completed

In an effort to improve the safety, cleanliness and overall

appearance of the Village, citizens now benefit from even

greater service as a result of improvements to Village

operations. Phase One of the Maintenance Facility

modifications 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.

The new Crime Lab is well-equipped and modern.

Phase One of the Maintenance Facility modifications completed.

Improvements also included a well-equipped and modernized

crime lab for the Police Department to 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 enhanced the Police Department’s capacity

to work on cyber, cellular 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 a

vehicle taken for investigation; a secured area for police

officers to process property and evidence, and an alarm and

video monitoring system to monitor the facility 24 hours a

day.

These modifications to the Maintenance Facility and Police

Crime Lab were identified as Phase One of planned facilities

improvements. Phase Two will include renovation of the

existing Maintenance Facility shop areas, expansion of the

administrative offices and improved parking for guests and

employees. At this time, funding for construction of phase

two has yet to be determined and will require City Council

approval in the future. The entire project is estimated to cost

$16,000,000. The cost for Phase One improvements were

$8,000,000.

Storm Sewer Lining Project Completed

The Village completed a major sewer lining project that

entailed lining several existing metal storm sewer pipes that

were showing signs of corrosion. Locations for the sewer line

GOVERNMENT

improvements were Arapahoe Road at Syracuse Way,

Orchard Road at Greenwood Plaza Blvd., Yosemite Street at

Radcliffe, and City Hall. The project also included lining of

the storm sewer pipe and inlet structure at Quebec Street and

Progress Circle. Proactively lining the pipes will extend the

life of the infrastructure and ensure long-term functionality,

while minimizing the chance of failures in the future.

Ballfields At Village Greens Park Renovated

In an effort to make the ballfields safer and more accessible

for users, all six ballfields at Village Greens Park were

renovated. The renovation included laser grading the

transition between the infields and outfields, replacing the

sod, and adding infield mix to improve drainage of the

infields during rain events.

PROTECTING OUR EARTH

AND ALL LIVING CREATURES

First Synthetic Turf Field Opens At Village Greens Park

Residents can now play on the first synthetic turf field at

Village Greens Park. The installation of synthetic turf on

Field 11 was a result of the Village protecting its park

investment. The installation of a synthetic turf field will

reduce the operational costs of the field by minimizing

excessive wear and allow recreationists to enjoy unlimited

play year-round. Allocation of funding of $525,000 for the

project was provided by City Council in the Village’s annual

Capital Improvement Program. Maintenance costs are

estimated to be reduced from $20,000 to $1,200 annually as

a result of the installation of the synthetic turf.

The Village’s first synthetic turf field at Village Greens Park.

Orchard Hills Park Tennis Court Gets Dual Purpose

The Village resurfaced the Orchard Hills single tennis court

and added another playful feature for users. In addition to

tennis, pickleball can also be played at Orchard Hills Park.

Originally popular with baby boomers, the sport has made a

generational jump and is becoming an exciting activity for all

ages. Grab your paddles and walk over to the court to enjoy

this new amenity in Greenwood Village!

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.

Village Center Station’s prominent location and site amenities

will be complemented by the architecture of the buildings,

and a public plaza which was designed to create an outdoor

amenity for users. 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 activities

there is ample space to accommodate various types of events.

In addition, the plaza provides 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. The

plaza and the energy it brings to the Arapahoe at Village

Center Station Light Rail stop will complete the vision for

this 13.5 acre master planned development.

OUTDOOR MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS IN WESTLANDS PARK

Residents are invited to attend a

public meeting on Thursday,

January 26, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. in

the Community Room at City Hall

to provide input on the

installation of outdoor musical

instruments in Westlands Park.

In 2015, a resident suggested

the idea of placing outdoor

musical instruments in a park to

the Parks, Trails and Recreation

(PTR) Commission which

recommended the project’s

inclusion, and City Council

approved, in the 2016 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) budget. A steering committee

comprised of local school teachers, members of the PTR Commission and the Arts and

Humanities Council, PTR staff, and the resident who proposed the project was formed.

The committee reviewed many types of outdoor musical instruments and is proposing a

grouping based on the sound produced, playability, size, and cost while ensuring a wellrounded

mix of instruments with a wide public appeal.

Installation is planned for spring of 2017. For further information, please call Suzanne

Moore, Director of Parks, Trails, and Recreation at 303-708-6142 or email at

GET READY FOR winter

GREENWOOD VILLAGE IS

READY FOR THE SNOW SEASON

The Village is ready for the snow season. The Snow and Ice

Program assures roadways are safe and accessible during and

after snow events. Snow and Ice operations consist of three

elements: snow plowing, application of materials for traction

and ice control, and snow removal if safety or accessibility

have been jeopardized.

ROADWAYS

All roadways in the Village are classified into either first or

second priority. The first priority routes include the high

volume roadways that connect major sections of the

community, all school bus routes and residential roadways

which connect the neighborhood to higher volume roadways.

Heavy snow accumulations may require repeated passes over

first priority roadways before second priority roadways are

plowed. Operations are repeated until the storm stops and all

roadway surfaces are cleared.

Snow and ice control operations begin in secondary areas

(residential neighborhoods) after first priority roadways have

been cleared. Snow is plowed and piled to an area that does

not block traffic flow. Snow cannot be piled in the center of

the roadway because thaw/freeze conditions will cause ice on

the roadway. Residential roadways are not plowed from curb

to curb to avoid covering sidewalks and blocking driveways.

Removal of snow piles will only occur when safety or

accessibility has been jeopardized. If possible, remove

vehicles from the roadways during storms for better clearing

of snow.

ICE MITIGATION

There are certain locations in Village neighborhoods that are

prone to ice formation due to shade or poor drainage. Once ice

forms, it is difficult to remove without damage to equipment or

infrastructure. Be on the look-out for snow and ice operators

moving snow piles from the shade to sun-exposed locations in

order to minimize ice build-up.

SNOW SHIFT HOURS

Village personnel who perform road and park maintenance

during the summer months conduct snow and ice control

operations in the winter. A weather service and two remote

weather information stations provide up-to-the-minute

information regarding weather conditions. Snow shifts are

activated when a snowstorm begins. The typical shift hours

are 5 a.m. to 1 p.m., 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. and 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.,

all days of the week, including holidays.

EQUIPMENT

The Village owns and maintains a variety of vehicles to

ensure effective snow and ice control operations. Equipment

includes 12 plow trucks, one anti-icing truck, one slide-in

tanker, one grader, and one loader for snow and ice

operations on roadways. In addition, there are three ATVs

(All-Terrain Vehicles), six pickup trucks with plows and many

hand-held snowblowers and shovels used to clear the trails,

sidewalks and parking lots. In order to assure that all

equipment is operational, mechanics are available at all times

during snow storms to handle any equipment problems.

USE CAUTION WHEN DRIVING

NEAR SNOWPLOWS

When driving near a snowplow, slow down and use caution.

Give plow drivers plenty of room so they can do their job

efficiently and safely.

MATERIALS

The Village applies solid and liquid materials on the

roadways for traction and ice control to improve traveling

conditions during snow and ice events. Staff monitors each

storm to determine the appropriate application of materials

depending on the weather conditions. Additionally, materials

are continually evaluated to identify the most effective

products with the least amount of environmental impact.

CONCRETE/ASPHALT TRAILS,

SIDEWALKS AND PARKING LOTS

The Village plows snow from concrete and asphalt trails, and

some sidewalks and parking lots. First priority trails are

those leading to and from schools. The parking lot at Village

Greens Park is the responsibility of the Village along with

snow control operations on sidewalks and parking lots at

City Hall, Curtis Arts & Humanities Center and the

Maintenance Facility. The parking lots of these facilities also

first priority for snow plowing and are cleared

simultaneously with the first priority trails. The parking lots

in other Village owned parks are then cleared. During the

average snowstorm, it takes about eight hours to clear trails,

sidewalks and parking lots. Crews often start as early as 4

a.m. Trail crews periodically check trails for problem areas if

the temperature remains below freezing for extended periods

of time.

QUESTIONS OR TO REPORT

SNOW AND ICE ISSUES

For more information regarding snow and ice operations

in the Village, please call the Maintenance Facility

at 303-708-6100 or email

STEP CAREFULLY

Thaw/freeze conditions can cause new ice on trails, sidewalks

and parking lots; always use caution when walking on these

during periods of freezing weather.

GET READY FOR winter

SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL IN

RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS

ICE ISN’T NICE!

It is winter and residents may

experience ice issues in front of

their respective properties. The

ice build-up occurs when melted

snow flows into gutters and onto

sidewalks in shaded areas that

have a north-facing exposure.

Due to the freeze and thaw cycles

experienced during winter

months, some areas may

experience more severe icing

than others.

SAFETY FIRST

Ice can be a safety hazard for

children and adults walking in

the neighborhoods and can cause

unwanted slip and fall accidents,

leading to some surprisingly serious injuries. As a resident,

you can even become a victim to falling on the ice in your

own driveway or on your sidewalk in front of your property.

WHAT RESIDENTS CAN DO

• Keep curb lines in residential areas free of excessive piles

of snow allowing for the efficient drainage of the melting

snow.

• Be aware of shady spots in front of your property caused

by large trees, shrubbery, parked cars, two story homes,

etc. which limit the amount of sun and contribute to

icing issues. Remove snow piles, compacted snow and

parked cars on north facing properties immediately after

snow fall.

• When removing snow from your sidewalk and/or

driveway, place the snow on your lawn and refrain from

shoveling or blowing the snow onto the curb or in the

gutter which can block water flow thus increasing the

potential of ice dam formations created during freeze thaw

cycles.

SNOW REMOVAL ASSISTANCE FOR SENIORS

Seniors, 60+ or the disabled can call Volunteers of America,

Colorado Branch, to request assistance as part of their Snow

Buddies program. Call 720-264-3379 or email

snowbuddies@voacolorado.org.

• Clear the snow the length of your property in the

curb/gutter line to keep it free flowing. Push the snow out

to the area where the concrete gutter meets the asphalt,

this extra effort greatly assists in preventing ice dam

formations

• Shovel the sidewalks on all sides of your property, the full

width of the sidewalk down to the pavement. After the

sidewalk is cleared, sprinkle sand to prevent falls.

WHAT GREENWOOD VILLAGE DOES

A “one in and one out” plowing operation in residential

neighborhoods is implemented. Plow trucks plow from the

center of the roadway out toward the edge of the roadway in

both directions. By doing this, snow is equally distributed

on each side of the roadway leaving a clear path of travel for

both incoming and outgoing traffic. This snow removal

method allows for the surface to dry at a quicker rate and

for the melting snow to flow toward the curb/gutter on both

sides of the street. Plowing curb to curb in residential areas

is not performed to avoid covering sidewalks and blocking

driveways. Snow cannot be piled in the center of the

roadway because thaw/freeze conditions will cause ice on the

roadway.

IT’S THE LAW!

The law in Greenwood Village requires all residents to

remove snow and ice from their sidewalks within 48-hours.

This requirement also includes removal of snow and ice

from sidewalks in the front and side of a residence (corner

lots). This requirement does not extend to walkways

leading from the sidewalk to the residence nor to sidewalks

or trails abutting the rear property of a residence. Clearing

snow around mailboxes is also the responsibility of the

occupant.

GREENWOOD

VILLAGE POLICE

DEPARTMENT

CITIZENS’ ACADEMY

BEGINS IN

FEBRUARY 2017!

SIGN UP TODAY!

The Greenwood Village Citizens’

Police Academy is an important

component of community

involvement and citizen outreach. Its

purpose is to provide a forum whereby

participants can develop a basic

understanding of how the Police

Department functions. It will also

provide opportunities for ongoing

communication between members of

the community and the Police

Department.

The next Greenwood Village Citizens’

Police Academy will begin on

Thursday, February 23, 2017, and

continue through Thursday, May 11,

2017. The two Saturday sessions, are

April 8 and May 6, 2017.

Each three-hour session covers a

variety of subjects ranging from basic

law enforcement and its role in the

community to discussions and

demonstrations with other specialized

units: Emergency Response Team

(ERT), K-9 Unit, Crisis Intervention

continued from page 16

Team, Traffic Unit, Accident

Reconstruction, Crime Prevention,

Investigations and School Resource

Officers. Most sessions will have

hands-on activities such as

fingerprinting, high-risk traffic stops,

and use of less-than-lethal weapons.

During each session, you will be able

to ask questions and interact with

police officers.

As an Academy participant, you will

If you are a resident of Greenwood Village or know of a senior or a person with a

disability who may have a hard time shoveling for any reason, ask your neighbors to

lend a hand to ensure your entire neighborhood is safe and accessible. Local boy

scout troops and youth in the neighborhood are great resources to assist with

residential snow removal. Don’t forget to arrange for someone to shovel your snow

while you are on vacation or away from your home for a long period of time during

winter storms.

HOLIDAY

SAFETY TIPS

IF YOU ARE TRAVELING

• Get an automatic timer for your

lights.

• Ask a neighbor to watch your

home, shovel snow, and park in the

driveway from time to time.

• Do not forget to have mail and

newspaper delivery stopped. If it

piles up, it is a sure sign you are

gone.

IF YOU ARE OUT

FOR THE EVENING

• Turn on lights and a radio or TV so

it looks like someone is home.

• Be extra cautious about locking

doors and windows when you leave,

even if it is just for a few minutes.

• Do not display gifts where they can

be seen from outside.

PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE

Do not leave any valuables in your

vehicle. Place everything in the trunk

of the vehicle.

Always lock your vehicle and store all

items out of sight. Breaking into an

empty car isn’t worth a thief’s time.

However, anything left in plain view

— from your holiday gifts to spare

change, sunglasses, GPS devices, CDs,

cell phones or briefcases – may tempt

a thief.

Help prevent your vehicle from being

stolen by always locking your car and

using anti-theft devices. In addition,

although it is cold, never leave your

vehicle running while you run inside

your home or a store — even if for

only a minute or two.

AFTER YOU’VE

OPENED THE GIFTS

Burglars know that many households

have new, and oftentimes expensive,

items in their homes following the

December holidays — especially items

such as new computers, stereo

components, televisions, cameras and

other electronic equipment. In too

many cases, residents make it easy for

burglars to figure out which homes to

target by putting boxes that identify

their new gifts in plain view with their

other garbage. Avoid becoming an

easy target for post-holiday burglars

by not leaving boxes for new

electronics and other items at garbage

pick-up locations for several days at a

time. Instead, break down any boxes

you are throwing out, put them in

garbage bags and place them inside a

trashcan. Think about keeping

broken-down boxes inside — in a

garage, for example — until the

evening before your regular garbage

pick-up. Some burglars actually look

inside garbage cans for evidence of

holiday gifts.

CELEBRATE RESPONSIBLY

The holiday season is a time of

celebration. Drinking and driving is a

danger to everyone on the road.

Anyone with a BAC of .08 or higher is

in violation of the law and may go to

jail. Remember that the risk is not

worth it. If you choose to drink

alcohol at a party, do not drive. Take a

cab, use public transportation or a

designated driver.

safety, please call the Police

Department at 303-773-2525. GV

HOLIDAY SHOPPING

SAFETY TIPS

With the holidays upon us, the Village

would like everyone to have a safe

holiday season. Provided below are

some safety tips of which to be aware

and practice when doing your holiday

shopping.

• Be aware of your surroundings at

all times.

• When shopping, try to park in a

well-lit portion of the parking lot

or street.

• When you park your car, secure the

valuables that you have left in your

car by placing them in the trunk.

Do not leave cellular phones,

purses, CD cases, laptops, or any

other item of value in your parked

car where they can be seen. It is

better not to leave valuables in

the car at all. Make sure you close

your windows, lock your doors and

activate your car alarm, if you have

one.

• Do not leave purchased

merchandise in your parked car

where it can be seen. Put these

items in your trunk, or conceal

them inside the vehicle.

• Keep your purse on your body, not

left in a cart or in the car. If you

carry a small purse, carry it over

your shoulder under your coat. Do

not carry all of your credit cards

with you. Leave your unneeded

documents at home.

• Always be aware of the location of

your personal items. Know where

your purse, cellular phone, wallet,

packages, etc. are at all times. Do

not leave them unattended. Do not

overburden yourself with packages.

• When you are finished shopping,

have your keys in your hand before

reaching your car door. Take notice

of your surroundings. If you see

that someone is watching you and

that you may be a potential victim,

return to the store immediately, and

call security or the police

department at 9-1-1.

• Do whatever you need to keep safe,

even if it means asking a security

guard or a police officer to escort

you to your car. It is always better

to be safe than sorry.

If you have any questions or need

assistance, please call the Greenwood

Village Police Department at

303-773-2525 or call 9-1-1. GV

DOG RULES AND LAWS

IN GREENWOOD VILLAGE

RESIDENTS ASKED TO COMPLY

WITH RESPECT FOR NEIGHBORS

Animal Control of the Police Department is here to help

people and animals live harmoniously together in their

community. Nevertheless, there are times when certain

behaviors disrupt residents’ peaceful enjoyment of their

homes or property, and is prohibited in Greenwood Village.

It is the responsibility of all pet owners to comply with all

local laws at all times. For more information or to report any

violation of dog rules and laws in the Village, please call the

Police Department at 303-773-2525.

LICENSING

Greenwood Village no longer requires citizens to register

their dogs. The Village does recommend that all pets have an

identification tag on their collar to help return a pet to their

owner.

LEASH LAW

There are no off-leash facilities/parks in Greenwood Village.

Pet owners are required to follow the Village leash law

requiring all dogs to be secured with a pet leash in public

areas of Greenwood Village.

DOG FECES

It is illegal for pet owners to leave their pet waste on public

property in Greenwood Village. Leaving your pet’s waste in

the grass or on the trail is not only discourteous to others,

but is very harmful to public health and the environment.

Dog feces is not fertilizer, not biodegradable, and cannot be

flushed down the drain. Trash receptacles are provided at all

Village parks and along trails. If there is no trash receptacle

nearby, keep a bag with you, pick it up, and dispose of it

when you get home.

NUISANCE ISSUES

A penalty assessment notice may be issued to a person

charged with a violation of Village Code related to animals,

including running at large; disturbing the peace; and removal

of dog feces. GV

EARLY BIRD RESTAURANT

5425 Landmark Place, Suite 101 • 303-568-9297

www.earlybirdrestaurant.com • Open 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. daily

The City of Greenwood Village is delighted to announce the

addition of the Early Bird Restaurant to The Landmark.

Passionate Chefs, high quality ingredients, and freshly made

drinks and dishes are just a few of the elements that will

make the Early Bird Restaurant your culinary destination of

choice . . . breakfast, lunch, or happy hour.

In 2012, Chefs Kristen and Daniel Cofrades opened the first

Early Bird Restaurant in Westminster, Colorado. The

inspiration behind the Early Bird name is attributable to the

Chefs’ daughter who was born prematurely. After continued

success and increasing popularity, they decided to open a

second location at The Landmark. According to Kristen,

Greenwood Village was chosen due to the City’s reputation

of being great to work in and its vibrant community. With a

combined 30 years of experience including cooking for

celebrities and the Pope, the two Chefs are confident they

can produce a unique, culinary experience suited to meet

your individual tastes and desires.

The Chefs are not only passionate when it comes to cooking,

but are proud to be a Colorado based company that utilizes

many local, Colorado products on its menu. One example is

the sausage which is purchased from Old Style Sausage in

Louisville, and is their own special, in-house recipe prepared

exclusively for Early Bird. The menu includes items for

Breakfast, Lunch, Brunch, “Rush Hour,” and is focused on

fresh, all-natural ingredients. The menu is sure to

continuously inspire a vast variety of options. From Breakfast

Tacos to Crème Brulee French Toast to Bacon Wrapped

Dates & Polenta Pups, there is something for everyone.

A specially prepared menu for kids is also available as well as

several gluten-free options.

In addition to a menu that offers a selection of seasonal,

high-quality, made-from-scratch meals, the Early Bird at The

Landmark will also offer a full bar with a selection of unique

handmade cocktails, craft beer and an eclectic wine list. They

will offer a happy hour from 2 to 5 p.m. serving small plates

along with bottles of wine and draft beer.

When Kristen and Daniel opened Early Bird, they had the

vision of bringing hospitality accompanied with great food

together in a friendly environment. The restaurant has a

history of displaying that small town feel and making it a

point to know each of their customers by name. The Early

Bird scene immerses customers in an elevated sense of style

and sophistication with a big city vibe while maintaining the

small town comfort and familiarity.

The Early Bird Restaurant at The Landmark has a private

dining room space available which patrons can reserve to host

special catered events or business meetings. They also provide

catering services from Boulder to the DTC. Similar to the

restaurant locations, Early Bird Catering consistently provides

an elevated level of service and food quality for their catering

clientele. For those on a budget who love the food, they also
