MAYOR RON reports

CITY MANAGER

JIM SANDERSON

RETIRING

At some point in our

lives, we’ve all worked

with someone who has a

philosophy of leadership

that we can all try to

emulate. Someone with

high standards for

quality, and committed

to setting goals and

instilling strategies to

achieve them. Someone

who never sacrificed his

own ethics and values to

accommodate others, and

committed to always do

the right thing — integrity.

On October 27, Greenwood Village

City Manager Jim Sanderson will

retire after serving the Village for 21

years. Jim’s tenure at the Village

includes serving as City Manager from

2006 to the present; Police Chief from

2001 to 2006, and Public Works

Director from 1996 to 2001.

During his career at Greenwood

Village, Jim has made outstanding

contributions to our community, and

achieved significant accomplishments

in every department he touched.

His ability to see the big picture, be a

problem solver, direct change for the

better, and lead employees to move the

Village organization to an outcome

based organization has contributed to

making our Village and Village staff

the community and people we are

today.

On behalf of Greenwood Village, the

City Council, staff, and myself, we

thank Jim Sanderson for serving

Greenwood Village in the utmost

professional, responsible and ethical

manner. In your career, you never

compromised quality in every aspect of

City Manager Jim Sanderson

and Mayor Rakowsky.

your work, or in every position you

held. With every decision you made,

you always put the citizens of

Greenwood Village first, and for that,

we thank you. You truly made a

difference in our lives and be assured

the Village is a better place because of

your leadership over the past 21 years.

Enjoy your retirement Jim, you

deserve it!

INSPIRED

TO GIVE

Many families in Greenwood

Village make family giving a habit,

integrating philanthropy into family

life. This is an excellent way to pass

on healthy attitudes about money

and helping others. It’s always

gratifying to me to hear about our

Village youth giving back to people.

Teaching our children to acquire the

habit of charity at a young age will

help them be inspired to help and

reach out to others in desperate

times of need.

I want to highlight four Village

youth who were inspired to help

people because of the aftermath of

Hurricane Harvey.

After Hurricane Harvey, brothers Ryan

and Connor Strouse and Delaney

Lenig went door to door selling

Hershey bars for Houston, the boys’

hometown. Their plan was to send all

the money they collected back home

to their family friends who lost so

much as a result of this catastrophic

event.

When the boys and Delaney visited

with the Grope residence to sell the

candy, Aaron Grope made the decision

that he wanted to help, too. He had a

birthday coming up, he talked to his

mom and asked that in lieu of gifts,

could he request his friends bring

money for the family in Houston he

had never met. Aaron followed

through with his plan and mailed the

family a check for $370 in September.

These four children of our community

have set a great example of kindness,

humility, leadership, and responsibility.

Their demonstrated behavior should

inspire and encourage all of us to want

to do better. After all, living by a good

example impacts many people. Their

work impacted me; I hope it made a

lasting impression on you as well.

Left to right: Aaron Grope, Ryan Strouse,

Delaney Lenig and Connor Strouse.

IN REMEMBRANCE

28 YEARS LATER

Twenty-eight years ago, Captain John Hager of

South Metro Fire Rescue (formerly Castlewood Fire

Protection District) was killed while fighting a fire

in a strip mall at the southwest corner of Yosemite

Street and Belleview Avenue in Greenwood Village.

In September, my wife Margaret (a former board

member of Castlewood and South Metro) and I,

surrounded by South Metro personnel, Pipes and

Drums, and Honor Guard, attended a

remembrance ceremony in honor of Captain John

Hager along with his family.

As the bagpipes began to play, firefighters stood at

attention for fallen firefighters. The South Metro Honor

Guard marched in unison, as they presented a wreath at the

memorial. MetCom aired a commemorative message and

firefighters slowly raised their arms in an Honor Salute and

Participants in remembrance ceremony in honor of Captain John Hager.

everyone observed a moment of silence. The event changed

and continues to influence South Metro Fire Rescue and

their families through today. As time may pass, Captain John

Hager will always be remembered.

ARAPAHOE ROAD/

I-25 INTERCHANGE

PROJECT UPDATE

I want to update you this month on

the status of the Arapahoe Road and

I-25 Interchange project. The

following questions/answers will

provide you with current information

on the project and what’s expected in

the coming months toward project

completion.

Is it accurate that construction on

that bridge/intersection began in

May 2016 and will end in July 2018?

Construction began in May 2016 and

major traffic impacts will be done by

the end of this year.

What has currently been completed

and what work remains to do on the

project? Work completed to date

includes: The I-25 bridges over

Arapahoe, all I-25 paving, Arapahoe

Road is in its final alignment. The

center median of Arapahoe Road has

been constructed. Utility relocation

work is complete. Retaining walls are

in place on the south side of Arapahoe

Road. Improved business access in the

northeast quadrant of the interchange

is in place, Yosemite Street is in its

final alignment and sound walls have

been built next to the Walnut Hills

subdivision in Centennial. Work that

remains includes: Final paving and

striping on Arapahoe Road (scheduled

for October 1); final paving on

RAMBLE WITH RON IN OCTOBER

Yosemite, Boston, Clinton and the

I-25 ramps; landscaping, irrigation;

final aesthetic work; and signal and

sign installations. Because some of this

work depends on weather conditions,

all of it might not be done until spring

2018.

What types of closures should drivers

expect in the coming weeks and

months? No other major closures are

planned. Through this fall there will

continue to be short-term lane closures

as they work toward project

completion.

How much will the overall project

cost? What are the funding sources?

Construction costs are $66 million

and most of the project (about $50

million) is being funded through

CDOT’s RAMP (Responsible

Acceleration of Maintenance and

Partnerships) program. Additional

funding was supplied by Arapahoe

County, the City of Centennial, the

Have some ideas or suggestions to share about living or working in Greenwood Village?

Walk and talk with Mayor Ron Rakowsky from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. (weather permitting) on:

Monday, October 9 — Westlands Park, 5701 S. Quebec Street

Monday, October 16 — Tommy Davis Park, Swim Club Lot, 9200 E. Orchard Road.

Registration is not required. For more information, please call the Mayor’s Office at

303-486-5745. Check for updates of the monthly schedule for Ramble with Ron at

www.greenwoodvillage.com.

City of Greenwood Village and the

Southeast Public Improvement

Metropolitan District.

Are similar projects being done at

other points along I-25 in the metro

area or beyond? A project in

Colorado Springs to reconstruct the

I-25 & US 24 (Cimarron Street)

interchange to improve traffic flow is

wrapping up in the next few weeks.

CDOT can provide more information

on other current projects.

Is the project’s goal mainly to

mitigate traffic at the intersection?

Will it have other effects? This project

will improve Arapahoe Road through

traffic by adding a lane in each

direction and removing the I-25

bridge piers that used to separate travel

lanes. Removing these bridge piers has

enabled triple left turns from the

southbound I-25 off-ramp to

eastbound Arapahoe Road. This

project also widened Yosemite Street

just north and south of Arapahoe

Road, realigned the Frontage Road in

the northeast quadrant of the

interchange to improve business access

and built noise walls adjacent to the

Walnut Hills subdivision to reduce the

impacts of traffic noise.

project’s Hotline at 720-580-2525 or

ENSURING A SAFE

community

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

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

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

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

HALLOWEEN

SAFETY TIPS

For Kids

• Never go into a stranger’s house or

ring their door unless your parents

and crosswalks.

• Make sure your parents know

where you are going and who you

are going with.

• Decorate costumes, bags and sacks

with reflective tape and stickers.

• Carry a flashlight with you at all

times.

• Use costumes that are light or

bright enough to make you more

visible at night.

CONSERVE WATER AND SAVE MONEY ON YOUR WATER BILLS

Greenwood Village is partnering once again 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.

QUICK TIPS TO

SAVE WATER

INDOORS

The hoses are rolled up and the

sprinklers are turned off, which makes

for a good time to shift our focus to

using water efficiently indoors.

Here are some quick tips to make the

most of your indoor water use:

• Spend five minutes or less in the

shower. Quick showers use less

water than baths.

• Fix all leaky toilets, faucets and

pipes. Check for a leaky toilet by

putting a few drops of food

coloring in the tank. If the color

appears in the bowl after 30

minutes, the toilet is leaking. You

may need to replace the flapper to

fix the leak. Check the water supply

lines under your sink for damp

spots or bulges in the hose, which

may indicate a leak.

• Replace an old toilet with an ultrahigh-efficiency

toilet, which can

pay for itself over time in water

savings. Denver Water offers rebates

for qualifying models — visit

denverwater.org/Rebates to learn

more.

TAKING WATER

INNOVATION TO THE

NEXT LEVEL AT

NATIONAL WESTERN

Denver Water, CSU join forces to

develop a world-class center for

water research, innovation and

education.

Denver Water and Colorado State

University are working to imagine

collaborative research, educational, and

lab spaces at the National Western

Center.

Innovators, scientists and leaders of

today must find opportunities to

research, test and demonstrate the

unknowns in a risk-free environment.

And, for Denver Water, this has to be

done while continuing to provide the

same high-quality, reliable supply

already being delivered today.

A mission that’s easier said than done

— until now.

Enter, Denver’s National Western

Center: A proposed 250-acre campus

located at the nexus of I-70 and the

South Platte River, with a focus on

promoting innovation.

As part of the new National Western

Center, Denver Water has partnered

with Colorado State University to

develop a Water Resources Center that

will focus on research, policy,

education and innovation in water.

First and foremost, the center will

house Denver Water’s new worldclass

water quality lab.

By moving the lab from its current

location at Marston Treatment Plant

to the new center, the water quality

team will have the ability to perform

more than 250,000 tests per year,

with state-of-the-art equipment.

For example, Denver Water is

already using recycled water for

irrigation at many parks and golf

courses, and other large industrial

and commercial operators, helping

to free up drinking water supplies

for, well, drinking. But, there are

many other sources of water that

could be treated to certain levels for

a wide-range of uses that haven’t

been researched or tried yet.

But it isn’t just about testing the

quality of water. The center will

bring innovative thinkers from

across water-related professions, like

water law and policy, and

technology advancement, as well as

experts from the food, agriculture,

recreation and environmental

industries. One of the ultimate goals

of the center is to develop solutions

to ensure Denver Water, and other

water providers across the nation

and world, can continue to provide a

safe and reliable water supply to its

customers while facing challenges

like climate change, population

growth, economic uncertainties,

evolving regulations and other

variables.

Design efforts are underway, with

the goal of breaking ground on the

center in late 2019.

GOT DRUGS?

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION

DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY

Saturday, October 28, 2017

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

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, 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,

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.

MAKING A difference

CDOT TO REDUCE

CONGESTION ON

I-225 SOUTHBOUND

IN DTC AREA

CONSTRUCTION SLATED

TO BEGIN IN OCTOBER

The Colorado Department of

Transportation (CDOT) is launching a

project to cut traffic delays on I-225

southbound in the Denver Tech

Center (DTC). The shoulder will be

converted to an additional lane,

loosening up the bottleneck. This will

be done by re-striping less than a mile

of I-225 southbound from Yosemite

St. to I-25. Work will be done during

the nights beginning in October. The

project should be completed in a

month or less.

There will be access restrictions. A

concrete barrier will be placed to

restrict DTC Blvd. on-ramp traffic to

I-25 northbound only. This will

prohibit drivers from DTC Blvd. from

weaving across lanes, improving the

safety and traffic flow of I-225

southbound.

With traffic back-ups extending over

three miles on I-225 southbound

during the peak travel times,

converting the shoulder to a lane is

anticipated to cut traffic delays in half

during the rush-hours.

The cost of this project is less than $1

million and the work will take up to a

month to complete, as compared to

spending $65 million to build

additional lanes and rebuild bridges,

which would take a couple of years to

complete. The re-striping is a pilot

project and will be evaluated and

monitored for effectiveness. GV

CONSTRUCTION IMPACTS:

• Night-time work on I-225 southbound lasting up to a month

beginning in October

• At least one lane will remain open on I-225 southbound during

over-night construction

• First few nights, crews will set up concrete barriers, preventing

DTC Blvd. on-ramp traffic from entering I-25 southbound

• Remaining nights will be focused on re-striping I-225

southbound

• There will be signage to alert motorists of new traffic patterns

DO YOU WANT TO AGE SUCCESSFULLY?

Everyone may have a different definition of what it means to

age successfully. Maybe it is a desire to stay active and

continue doing the activities you are doing now, or returning

to the activities you love. Maybe you want to stay

independent and in your own home. Whatever your

definition of aging successfully is, A Personalized Physical

Therapist, LLC is dedicated to assisting individuals in aging

successfully.

Dr. Julie Trail D.P.T. and A Personalized Physical Therapist,

LLC, are “Dedicated to Independence” and offers

personalized treatments with the goal of keeping individuals

active and independent as long as possible. Seeing her

grandmother struggle with not being able to return home

after a stroke at the age of 98, fueled Dr. Julie’ s passion to

develop a physical therapy practice to help people stay in

their homes. She believes “It is important to resume the

activities you may have given up due to injuries, pains or just

the fear of getting injured.” Dr. Julie helps people of all ages

stay active doing the activities they enjoy.

No two people are alike and that is precisely why Dr. Julie

will tailor your treatment to meet your individual needs.

During your initial evaluation, she will complete a thorough

history and perform a functional evaluation to determine

your muscle strength and range of motion. She will then

work with you to formulate an individualized exercise

program focusing on achieving your goals for therapy.

Strength, flexibility, balance and independence are the core of

Dr. Julie’ s practice. “I love the challenge of coming up with

an exercise specific to you and the problems that you are

experiencing.”

Dr. Julie wanted to be a physical therapist since she was in

third grade following hand surgery which required postoperative

therapy. She has been a therapist for over 16 years

and she still loves her career. As a generalist, she treats

everything from post-polio, TMJ, vestibular to orthopedics.

She also treats all age groups from teenagers to seniors. “I

love the variety of diagnosis and no two people are the same.”

As a graduate from the Arizona School of Health Sciences

with a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, Dr. Julie has spent

most of her career at a private outpatient physical therapy

practice and has worked as an inpatient therapist at a local

hospital. She has extensive continuing education experience

including advanced training for vestibular disorders in

addition to being a certified N’ balance instructor. Dr. Julie

has always been passionate about patient satisfaction. This is

the primary reason she decided to open her own clinic in

June 2017. She chose Greenwood Village for her practice

because she liked the “safe and welcoming feeling.”

Personalized treatment is available for orthopedic problems

including pre- and post-surgical joint replacements, overuse

injuries, muscle sprains and strains, ligament injuries,

postural instability including scoliosis, plantar fasciitis,

arthritis, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Dr. Julie also treats

many neurological conditions, including but not limited to,

Parkinson’ s, multiple sclerosis, cerebral vascular accident,

post-polio syndrome and migraines. She treats vestibular

NEW ARTWORK IN

WESTLANDS PARK

If you have taken the trail around

Westlands Park lately you may have

noticed some new, artistic additions.

Eight new works of public art were

recently installed throughout the park,

six works by Charles Parson and two

works by Collin Parson. This is the

first time the father/son team have

shown their outdoor works together.

The Greenwood Village Arts and

Humanities Council partnered with

the Museum of Outdoor Arts to create

this outdoor gallery at Westlands Park.

In addition to the outdoor gallery,

these works correspond to an indoor

exhibit featuring additional works by

the two artists at MOA in Englewood.

Charles and Collin Parson respond and

react to each other’s work, both in

concept and format. Each artist creates

objects that remind viewers of the

extraordinary possibilities intrinsic in

common, often industrial, materials,

building on the structures of geometric

forms underlying our world. This

exhibit is an artistic bridge of the two

generations, presenting an opportunity

to harmonize and at times, contrast

today’s definitions of artistic

expression.

The indoor exhibit runs through

December 15 at MOA. The outdoor

sculptures will continue to be on

display in Westlands Park through

August 2018.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

While Charles and Collin Parson have shown their work extensively

in Colorado and across the US, this is the first time the father/ son

team have shown their outdoor sculptural work together.

Charles Parson’s multi-faceted work includes drawings, prints, wall

constructions, sculptures, installations, stage designs and

performance art. His work has been viewed in galleries, art centers

and museums throughout the United States. He has 65 one-person

exhibitions to his credit, as well as numerous regional and national

showings in group shows. Additionally, he has produced many

alternative public art events and large-scale temporary

installations. Charles has taught art throughout the region

including Denver University and the Rocky Mountain College of Art

and Design. He is currently a Professor of Art at the Community

College of Denver.

Collin Parson recently completed his artist residency at RedLine

Denver. An arts administrator, artist, curator and designer he

received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater Design and Technology

with emphasis in Lighting and Scene Design from the University of

Colorado at Boulder and his Master in Arts in Visual Culture and

Arts Administration from Regis University in Denver. His creative

work involves the control of light and color to create vivid

geometric light and space works. Collin currently serves as

Director of Galleries and Curator for the Arvada Center for the Arts

and Humanities in Arvada.
