SAFETY AND

WELLNESS

ALERTS IN MY REPORT

At Greenwood Village, we care about you and

your family’s safety and well-being, and one of our

missions is to ensure the safety and welfare of the

community. As we begin 2017, this month’s report

has been reserved for some important safety and

wellness alerts and messages I wanted to bring to

your attention. I hope you find this information

useful and valuable in your daily lives. If there is

other safety information you would like for us to

share, please call the City Manager’s Office at

303-486-5745.

MAKE SURE TO SLOW DOWN

AND MOVE OVER . . .

I want to remind everyone about the “Move Over” law and

the severe consequences it could have if motorists do not

obey this significant law. As we continue to see needless

crashes across the state, every year several first responders are

seriously injured including some fatally, because motorists

simply refuse to move over. Moreover, most of the time,

motorists are not aware of the law. So I hope some education

about the law will help prevent future accidents and save

lives.

Colorado’s law is very clear requiring motorists to move over

at least one lane whenever they approach an emergency

vehicle with its lights flashing. If a motorist is unable to move

over for example on a two lane road or when heavy traffic is

present, they are required to greatly reduce their speed. This

A wreck that occurred earlier this year because of a motorist’s

failure to move over in Greenwood Village.

law also protects road maintenance and tow truck operations.

By moving over, motorists provide a buffer zone for the

personnel directing their attention to the situation on the

roadway.

It’s critical that motorists become familiar with the “Move

Over” law and react appropriately as several law enforcement

agencies, including our Greenwood Village Police Officers,

will continue conducting ongoing education and

enforcement operations. Motorists in Greenwood Village will

be stopped and receive a citation if you fail to move over.

I commend our Police Department for taking the lead on

this vitally important issue. Recognize GVPD has been the

victim of this very issue twice this past year. Fortunately the

injuries sustained will heal. We can always purchase

replacement vehicles. Had the two officers involved been lost,

they would have been irreplaceable in terms of their training

and commitment to our collective safety.

So please, move over to keep you, your family, and your

police officers safe.

CALL 2-1-1 FOR

COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE

Sometimes in life you may encounter a situation where you

need resources to assist but may not know where to begin.

Mile High United Way offers a free and confidential

community service that connects callers with assistance on a

variety of issues such as food, shelter, rent assistance,

clothing, child care options, transportation assistance,

substance abuse, senior issues, medical and dental care,

immigration information, prescriptions, mental health,

home repair, and volunteer opportunities. 2-1-1 also

provides help with seasonal needs such as tax preparation

assistance, school supplies and holiday needs. To inquire

about services, please dial 2-1-1 or 866-760-6489 toll free,

or search online, or live chat with a specialist online at

unitedwaydenver.org/2-1-1.

TAKE THE PLEDGE . . .

STAY SAFE NEAR LIGHT RAIL

Please share the following with younger adults and children

you know.

As RTD completes commuter and light rail lines and testing

of live trains on tracks through metro Denver, citizens need

to be alert and stay safe. While signals, signs, lights, whistles

and horns are important safety aids, state law prohibits

motorists and pedestrians from entering a train crossing

and pedestrians should always follow safety signs and obey

warning devices such as flashing red lights and gate arms.

Here are a few tips to remember the next time you’re near a

bus or train:

• Stay off the tracks.

• Don’t touch those wires.

• Stand back from moving vehicles.

• Don’t chase moving trains or buses.

• Watch those doors. They’re heavy and close automatically.

• Be patient at pedestrian and vehicle crossings.

OBTAIN A FREE

RADON TEST

FOR YOUR HOME

Did you know that one in 15 homes

across the United States has elevated

radon levels? In Colorado, radon is

present at elevated levels in about 50%

of homes. With more than 20,000

deaths each year, radon exposure is the

second leading cause of lung cancer

deaths in the United States and the

number one cause among nonsmokers.

Tri-County Health Department offers

free radon testing for residents.

Tri-County Health Department will

place a radon meter in your home and

measure the radon levels for

comparison to the EPA standard of

4.0 pCi/l (picocuries per liter). The

house needs to be closed up (no doors

or windows left ajar) for at least 12

hours prior to sampling. Residents will

receive a written report that

summarizes the results. This is a free

service for residents but there is a

charge for businesses.

I encourage you to learn about the

dangers of radon and what can be

done to minimize health risk from

exposure to elevated levels of indoor

radon. Get a radon mitigation test for

your home today by calling

Tri-County Health Department at

303-220-9200.

HIDDEN SUGARS

IN BEVERAGES

Ensuring citizen safety includes building a

healthier community together. Many parents

and caregivers are not aware of the hidden

sugar in many of the beverages they give to

their children. Sugary beverages are the single

largest contributor of calories to our diet. By

drinking just one sugary drink a day, a child

has 25% increased risk of developing type 2

diabetes, 55% greater risk of being overweight

or obese, and 150% greater risk of developing

fat deposits in their liver, contributing to

diabetes and heart disease.

Greenwood Village is assisting the Tri-County

Health Department (TCHD) in educating

parents and caregivers about the harmful

effects of sugar and informing them of the

high sugar content in many of the beverages

they may be giving to their kids. For more

information, please visit hidden-sugar.org. GV

PEDESTRIANS: RULES OF THE

ROAD TO PROTECT YOUR LIFE

According to the U. S. Department of Transportation,

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2014,

4,884 people were killed in pedestrian/motor vehicle crashes,

more than 12 people every day of the year. Though the

number of pedestrian fatalities fell from 4,901 in 2001, there

were 65,000 reported pedestrian injuries in 2014; nearly one

injury every eight minutes.

Traffic and Pedestrian

Signals: Pedestrians must

yield the right-of-way to

drivers by obeying traffic

signals, observing pedestrian

signals and using crosswalks.

The pedestrian signals are:

WALK (Constantly

Lighted): Pedestrians facing

the signal may cross the

roadway in the direction of

the signal.

DON’T WALK (Flashing): Pedestrians may not start to

cross the roadway. Any pedestrian who has partly

completed his cross may continue.

DON’T WALK (Constantly Lighted): Pedestrians may

not enter the roadway.

Crossing a Roadway: Always cross the street at a designated

crosswalk. Pedestrians must give the right-of-way to drivers.

Within a Crosswalk: If a pedestrian is in the crosswalk, a

vehicle has to yield. However, if a vehicle is 20 feet away

from the crosswalk and traveling at 30 mph,

the pedestrian must yield as the vehicle does

not have enough time to stop safely.

Intersections: Be careful at intersections,

where drivers may fail to yield the right-of-way

to pedestrians while turning onto another

street.

Joggers and Walkers: Joggers and walkers should use

jogging paths when provided. On public roads, joggers

should try to select wide roads with good shoulders. They

should face oncoming traffic and remember to look and

listen for cars. At night or any time visibility is poor, joggers

and walkers should be in well-lighted areas and wear

reflective clothing.

303-773-2525. GV

BICYCLE SAFETY

AVOID A COSTLY MISTAKE

Before you take

to the road with

your bicycle, it’s

imperative to

know and

practice all the

fundamentals of

riding a bicycle.

Did you know

bicyclists are

subject to the

same rules, laws

and regulations

as motor vehicles? Ignoring rules of the road that regulate

passing, riding abreast, use of hand signals, stop signs, and

other etiquette will determine your fate on the roadway. If all

else fails, always adhere to the lug nut rule: he who has the

most lug nuts wins. In other words, a car will always win

over a bicycle. So ride carefully and cautiously to avoid a

costly mistake and a crash course in bicycling.

• Always ride on the RIGHT. Remember to “go with the

traffic flow.” Never ride against traffic. Cars will not be

expecting to find a biker when they round a corner or go

over a hill.

• Ride single file. When passing other bikers or pedestrians,

let them know your position by shouting something like,

“On your left!”

• When riding two abreast, do not impede the movement

of traffic. If you are

on a road with

lanes, you must

ride within a single

lane.

• Always check

behind you when

changing lanes.

• Watch out for

dangerous things

on the roadways or

on trails. Road

litter, puddles of

water, loose gravel,

and storm gates can

cause you to lose

control of your

bicycle.

• Stop at all stop

signs and traffic

lights. Be extra

careful at

crossroads. Walk

your bicycle across

busy intersections.

• Always signal

before making a left or right turn. To make a left turn,

look behind you, hold your left arm straight out and

proceed carefully. For a right turn, hold your left arm out

and up in an “L” shape.

• Keep control of your bike. Do not swerve or make sudden

turns. Drivers may not be able to react fast enough to

avoid colliding with you.

• Ride at least three feet away from parked cars. Someone

could open his or her door unexpectedly.

• Listen for cars approaching from the side or behind you.

• Do not follow cars too closely (you may be in their blind

spot).

• Know your road signs and obey them. A smart bicyclist

follows the rules of the road.

• Always be prepared to stop. Keep your hands on or close

to the brakes.

• Do not forget to wear your helmet! And do not wear

headphones; you will not be able to hear what is going on

around you.

For more information on driver, pedestrian, bicyclist, and

motorcycle safety, please call the Greenwood Village Police

Department at 303-773-2525. GV

2016 CRIME

STATISTICS RELEASED

POLICE DEPARTMENT SAYS

VILLAGE REMAINS SAFE

The Police Department, through their strategic operations

and community programs, works to ensure the safety of the

community. In January 2017, the Police Department released

crime statistics for 2016.

In 2016, the Police Department continued to solidify the

implementation of their Strategic Intelligence Deployment

Accountability Planning (SIDAP) philosophy. The SIDAP

philosophy is built upon the foundational components of:

timely and accurate data analysis, rapid and specific

deployment of resources, effective tactics and proper follow

up. The idea of putting the “right” people in the “right” place

for the “right” reason summarizes the essence of what the

SIDAP philosophy embodies.

Each month the Police Department leadership staff has a

mandatory SIDAP meeting. During the meeting, the prior

month data summary is presented by the crime analyst and

each police commander presents strategic deployment plans

both for the past month and for the future month. An

emphasis is placed on creating positive outcomes, as

measured both quantitatively and qualitatively, from these

strategic deployments. Realizing that crime and traffic

accident numbers fluctuate due to a variety of factors, it is

critical that we are systematically keeping a watchful eye over

all of them and then being diligent in our proactive and

focused response.

With specific and measurable goals, the Police Department is

able to clearly articulate how we are serving our community’s

public safety needs. Utilizing the quantifiable data presented

during the SIDAP meetings, the Police Department was able

to deploy target traffic patrols in high accident locations,

which we strongly believe helped to reduce injury accidents

to a historic annual low level across the Village.

The chart below represents the aggressive crime reduction

goals set by department leaders for 2016. The goals are

developed by analyzing three years of data and then setting a

goal to reduce each crime by 5%. Although, we did not reach

all of the goals set for 2016, we made significant progress in

community safety by reducing the overall number of injury

2016 Crime Reduction Goals And Outcomes

GOVERNMENT

accidents from 45 accidents in 2015,

to 32 accidents in 2016. This

reduction in injury accidents, which is

identified by using real time data,

allows department leaders to

strategically deploy our resources to

known accident locations.

Crime And Accident Comparison Chart

November 2016 To December 2016

The chart below is a comparative

example of how we measure and

analyze crime and traffic accidents

from month to month. The color

scheme represents an increase in

(red), no change in (yellow), a

reduction in (green) and no

incidents reported in (black).

There is no question the adaptation

of the SIDAP strategic deployment

philosophy gives the Police

Department an effective and efficient

way to prevent crime and efficiently

deploy police resources. As the Police

Department integrates additional

new and planned, technologies into

operation, it is anticipated that our

access to time critical data for SIDAP

analysis will continue to improve.

We feel very strongly that in turn this

will allow us to make the Village even

safer with reduction in crime.

FROZEN POND

AND LAKE SAFETY

Each winter, after the ice forms on Colorado’s waters,

outdoor enthusiasts enjoy ice fishing, ice skating and other

fun winter sports. Before going out onto a frozen lake, pond

or river, it’s important to take safety precautions to reduce the

risk of falling through the ice. Knowing how to judge ice

conditions will also help you make more informed decisions

while enjoying winter.

CAREFULLY CHECK ICE CONDITIONS

• Remember, you take a risk anytime you go out onto the

ice. Ice thickness is not consistent.

• Don’t judge ice strictly by appearance.

• When ice fishing, it is always a good idea to drill test

holes as you progress out onto a lake to help judge the

thickness and character of the ice.

• Beware of ice around partially submerged objects, such as

trees, logs, or dam structures.

• Stay away from cracks, slushy areas and darker areas that

signify thinner ice.

• Be aware of ice that forms at the edge of the lake during

the fall and melts at the edges first in spring.

• Be aware of ice covered with snow. Sometimes the snow

serves as insulation. Other times, it has the opposite effect

by insulating the surface from freezing.

• Never go out onto the ice alone. A friend could rescue

you or go for help if you fall through.

• When changing locations on the ice, always walk at least

10 yards apart from your friend.

• Always inform someone of your destination and expected

time of return.

• Always wear a life jacket or personal flotation device over

a snowmobile suit or layered winter clothing. Life jackets

can provide excellent flotation and protection against

hypothermia.

• Assemble a personal safety kit, no larger than the size of a

man’s wallet, and carry it on your body. The kit should

include a lighter, pocketknife, compass, whistle, and

waterproof matches.

• In addition to the above safety equipment, carry ice picks,

a rope and cellular phone. These items could save your

WHAT TO DO IF YOU

FALL THROUGH THE ICE

If you can’t get out of the cold water by yourself, take

appropriate actions to extend your survival time while

waiting to be rescued.

• Stay calm and use a whistle to attract help.

• Act slowly and deliberately to conserve heat and move

slowly back to where you entered the water. Expect a

progressive decrease in your strength and ability to move.

• If you are wearing a snowmobile helmet and your face is

in the water, remove the helmet as quickly as possible

because it can fill with water and cause you to drown.

Hold onto it to keep afloat.

• Once on the ice, try to push yourself forward on your

stomach or roll over on your side to keep the weight

distributed over a greater surface area. Do not stand up

until you have moved onto the ground or an area of solid

ice. GV

GREENWOOD VILLAGE FAMILY MEDICINE

8200 East Belleview Avenue, Suite 204-C • 303-221-5700

www.greenwoodvillagefamilymedicine.com • Open Monday-Thursday 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. and Fridays by appointment

Greenwood Village Family Medicine

has been providing exceptional

healthcare that is focused on the needs

of patients in the City of Greenwood

Village for the past 14 years. The

practice is led by Dr. Terese Donch

who is board certified by the American

Board of Family Medicine. She

believes in offering primary care that is

personalized and she promotes a

program of active health management

that is individualized to address each

person’s needs. Over her many years of

practice Dr. Donch recognized the

inherent limitations that existed when

her focus was stretched to the limit by

having a multitude of patients to see

each day. She was increasingly unable

to spend the kind of time needed to

develop the relationship with each

patient that provides the best care. She

decided that a change had to be made.

Just as people spend time and

resources to ensure their financial

future, Dr. Donch believes the same

level of attention, if not more, is

critical to ensure an individual’s health

future. To those ends Dr. Donch has

implemented a new approach to caring

for her patients by offering an

innovative, unique care model which

started this year. Through her

prevention-based active health

management model, Dr. Donch

provides a framework for all clients to

be healthy by choice, not by chance.

Dr. Donch believes that much of the

illness in today’s world is determined

by lifestyle which is largely ignored

within the traditional medical practice.

That traditional approach is based on

episodic care, which involves only

seeing patients when they are sick.

Care at Greenwood Village Family

Medicine is always provided by a

physician that is focused not only on

current ailments, but also on fostering

a collaborative environment designed

to equip patients with the tools they

need to achieve optimal wellness.

Current conditions are managed while

developing strategies to help educate

patients and keep them on track as

they modify their lifestyle in an effort

to prevent further illness. This is done

by combining quality medicine with

prevention-focused active health

management. Empowering patients by

giving them knowledge and emotional

support to take the steps needed to

improve their own health is the goal.

The program includes:

• An annual comprehensive health

evaluation tailored to and focusing

on your lifestyle, habits and

personal strengths to create your

personalized annual health plan

with monthly follow-up visits to

ensure success.

• Same day/next day appointments

while enjoying minimal wait times.

• Access to extended (1 hour)

appointments at your preferred

times whenever possible.

• 24-hour access to Dr. Donch via

telephone, text and email.

9632 E ARAPAHOE ROAD, 303-662-8111

Volcano Asian Cuisine, also known as Volcano in the DTC

area, has recently relocated to Greenwood Village, at

9632 E. Arapahoe Road, just east of I-25, in the west end of

for a wide variety of Chinese,

Sushi and Hibachi Grill cooking.

The new Volcano is a modern

Chinese and Sushi restaurant

with a selection of traditional Chinese dishes, such as Spicy

Boiled Fish, Mini Pork Buns, etc.

Arapahoe County Commissioner Nancy Sharpe; John Hebers,

DTC/Greenwood Village Chamber of Commerce; and Mayor

Ron Rakowsky celebrate Volcano grand opening.

Volcano is a

small business.

The owners, Jay

of China, who

came to the U.S.

for graduate

school and

worked in several

corporations

prior to their

venture in the restaurant business, contribute their success to

their diverse background and abilities to connect with

customers and employees. For several years and counting,

Volcano has been a key supporter of the Cherry Creek

Diversity Conference, Integrated Family Community

Services, and many organizations within Asian communities.

Among Volcano’s notable fans are Colorado’s very own

Denver Broncos, to whom Volcano has been catering for the

NEWEST ARTS AND HUMANITIES COUNCIL MEMBER

CYNTHIA MADDEN LEITNER

Museum of Outdoor Arts’ President and Executive Director

Cynthia Madden Leitner co-founded

the Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA)

with her parents, Colorado developer

John W. Madden Jr. and his wife

Marjorie Madden in 1982. Designed as

a “museum without walls,” MOA’s

original mission followed the definition

by integrating the arts into commercial

landscapes and architecture to create

synergistic environments for everyday

living. Beginning with a donated

outdoor collection of 12 sculptures

placed in Greenwood Plaza, the collection now has over 200

monumental sculptures installed throughout the Denver

Metro area. In 1995 The Colorado Governor’s Award for

Excellence in the Arts was awarded to Cynthia for the

realization of MOA’s unique vision.

Cynthia has curated over 200 exhibitions for the Museum of

Outdoor Arts and more than 20 exhibitions for other arts

organizations during her 35-year tenure as President and

Executive Director. She has worked with local, national, and

international artists including Nick Bantock, Sanfte

Strukturen, Daniel Sprick, and Claudy Jongstra. In 1999

Cynthia co-curated A View from Denver with the Denver Art

Museum for the White House Rose Garden. Among the

Museum’s publications are Portrait of a Museum and Secret

Rooms; the films “Palazzo Verdi” and “Sacred Water at

Burning Man” both aired on PBS. Cynthia has also

spearheaded monumental projects such as creating Design

and Build, a renowned education internship for emerging

artists, building Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre (FGA) from an

earth sculpture into the largest outdoor live music venue in

Colorado, and designing and creating Element House, an offthe-grid

home near the site of Charles Ross’ Star Axis.

Among civic activities, Cynthia serves on the PLACE

advisory board, and the Greenwood Village Arts and

Humanities Council. She has also served on the board of the

International Sculpture Center, is an Honorary Trustee of The

Women’s Foundation of Colorado, and a founder of the

National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington,

D.C. Cynthia has also been selected for the Denver Mayor’s

Commission of Arts, Culture and Film, the Denver

Foundation’s Arts and Culture Committee, the Colorado

Business Committee for the Arts, and the Advisory

Committee for the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Denver.

Cynthia and the Museum

of Outdoor Arts have

been honored with the

following awards:

Distinguished
