MAYOR RON reports

JOHN JACKSON

APPOINTED AS CITY MANAGER

As a result of Jim Sanderson’s retirement in October, the City

Council and I are pleased to announce the appointment of

our Police Chief John Jackson as our new City

Manager. Many of you may recognize or

interacted with John Jackson in some fashion as

he served as our Police Chief since January

2011. John was the sole finalist for the City

Manager position.

John Jackson was

born and raised in

Northeastern Iowa.

He received his

Bachelor’s Degree

in Criminal Justice

from Wartburg

College in

Waverly, Iowa and

his Master’s Degree in

Administration of Criminal

Justice from Washburn

City Manager John Jackson

University in Topeka, Kansas. Jackson has more than 29 years

of police service including experience in most all positions

and ranks of a municipal police department up to and

including serving as the Chief of Police in both rural and

urban cities in the State of Colorado. John is a graduate from

the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s National Academy, the

FBI’s Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar, and

held leadership positions with the Colorado Chiefs of Police

Association including its Presidency. John is currently an

adjunct professor at Fort Hays State University as well as the

University of Denver.

The Village is very fortunate to have someone with John’s

expertise and experience on staff and the City Council was

very impressed by his ability to work with people and his

passion to get things done. He has an excellent track record

with our citizens and is highly respected in the Denver

region. His experience will contribute to a smooth transition

and continue to ensure progress for our great Village.

or email jjackson@greenwoodvillage.com.

DUSTIN VARNEY

APPOINTED AS POLICE CHIEF

My tenure with our Police Department started when I

appeared as a spokesman in Public Service Announcements

on behalf of our Police Department

in the late ’90s. That was followed

by my service on GVPD Assessment

Centers to Sergeant and Lieutenant

(including Varney’s to Sergeant). My

interaction with law enforcement

began after law school as a lecturer

and administrator for a police officer

accreditation agency and working

with local law enforcement and the

FBI in Florida and California during

my Air Force career. Early this year

the Governor appointed me to the Police Chief

elected official position on the Dustin Varney

Colorado Peace Officer Standards Training Board. It is

because of the aforementioned background that I believe I

have a solid foundation upon which to comment on Dustin

Varney’s appointment as Chief of Police.

Dustin has been with the Village since 1994 and has held

several leadership positions in the Police Department. I have

known Dustin Varney for 23 years. Among all those I have

known in Law Enforcement NONE has had greater personal

integrity or respect for our United States and Colorado

Constitutions and their implementing statutes and

interpreting case law than Dustin. It is my assessment that he

is perceived as fair as a supervisor by his subordinates and a

“Cop’s Cop,” City Manager Jackson stated that his selection

of Commander Varney to serve as Police Chief was nothing

other than purposeful since Dustin has been groomed for this

role for a long period of time. We strongly believe he is the

perfect person for this very important position.

As a citizen of Greenwood Village, you will enjoy your

interactions with Police Chief Varney. He is well respected by

citizens and staff, and has a great passion for ensuring the

safety of the Village community. Please feel free to contact

him should you have any questions about the Police

Department at 303-486-8266 or email

dvarney@greenwoodvillage.com.

neighborhoods. There is an added benefit resulting from the

upgrade of the system in that it replaces parts of the grid

system dating from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.

Work is near completion on the Orchard Road

Undergrounding project. The project consists of

undergrounding of approximately 6,400 linear feet of

overhead power lines located on the Greenwood Village /

Centennial jurisdictional boundary along East Orchard Road

from South Colorado Boulevard to South Quebec Street. The

project is funded through the Xcel Undergrounding Program,

with a 50/50 cost share between Greenwood Village and

Centennial. Installation of the new underground facilities

with utility pole removal and final landscape restoration will

be completed later this fall or early winter, weather

permitting.

To date, the Village has undergrounded approximately

57,000 linear feet of utility lines… that equates to over 10

miles of power lines at a value of more than $6 million.

The primary purpose of the Village’s

Budget and budgetary process is to

develop, adopt and implement a

fiscally sound and sustainable plan to

accomplish the established goals of

the upcoming year, while remaining

consistent with the long-term vision

of the community. Development of

the 2018 Annual Operating &

infrastructure of the community,

and ensuring the financial health

of the organization without the

addition of new taxes or issuance of

debt.

WHERE DOES THE

MONEY COME FROM?

The Village receives revenue from

several sources. Taxes and assessments

represent the largest category,

accounting for more than 80% of all

Village revenue. Other sources

include intergovernmental revenues

comprised of sources which are

collected and shared with the Village

by other governments, as well as

federal, state and/or county grants,

the sale of various licenses and

permits, user charges and fees

intended to offset certain costs,

punitive fines and forfeitures for the

VICTIM ADVOCATES NEEDED

IN POLICE DEPARTMENT

The Greenwood Village Police Department is

currently accepting applications for citizen volunteers

who would like to serve as victim advocates. Victim

Advocates provide 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

support and crisis response to victims of crime and

persons involved in traumatic events. Victim

Advocates may respond to crime scenes, hospitals or

the police department to assist people in need.

Victim Advocates are trained to provide crisis intervention and short-term support

to victims of crime and people impacted by a traumatic event. Additionally,

advocates can supply information on victim rights, victim compensation and

referrals to agencies within the community. Victim Advocate volunteers should have

a proactive attitude, excellent communication skills, be compassionate, and have the

ability to speak effectively to victims in crisis while maintaining a calm presence.

This is a trusted and sensitive, but highly rewarding position.

Training for volunteers will be provided by the Greenwood Village Police

Department in collaboration with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. The

training includes approximately 50 hours of instruction, beginning in January 2018,

with specific dates and times to be announced soon.

Following training, volunteers will be required to attend monthly meetings/

trainings held on the first working Monday evening of each month. Advocates will

be required to sign up for two 12 hour on-call shifts each month. All applicants will

be required to attend all trainings before graduating to assist victims.

For more information or to request an application please contact Melissa Madsen,

Victim Advocate Coordinator at mmadsen@greenwoodvillage.com or call

considered for the January Victim Advocate Volunteer Academy. GV

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 and trails 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 and/or ice

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 edge

to edge to avoid covering sidewalks or 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.

RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALKS

AND DRIVEWAYS

The law in Greenwood Village requires all residents to remove

snow and ice from their sidewalks within 48-hours and

businesses to remove snow and ice from their sidewalks within

24-hours after accumulation. 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.

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 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

during periods of freezing weather.

PROJECT UPDATES

LONG ROAD

RECONSTRUCTION

The purpose of the Long Road

Reconstruction Project is to

reconstruct a corridor that was

originally paved in 1972. In addition

to the pavement reconstruction, the

project scope involves upgrading the

storm sewer system, replacing a

Southgate waterline main, pedestrian

safety improvements and

undergrounding the overhead power

lines. The work, which began in April,

will continue into December under

the current closure condition. Long

Road will reopen in December,

however, work will continue through

the winter months into the late Spring

of 2018.

Due to winter weather conditions,

paving and landscaping will be

suspended until the spring of 2018. As

weather permits through the winter,

the contractor will continue with

utility and grading activities during

non-rush hour periods with one way

flagging operations.

When paving and landscaping

resumes, it is anticipated to take two

months to complete. While there may

be short-term weekend closures

necessary to perform the remaining

activities in the spring, no long-term

closures of Long Road are planned.

Several unplanned underground utility

conflicts required modifications to the

alignment of the new water line and

the new storm sewer. Unfortunately,

these modifications have caused delays

to the completion date of the project.

While these type of utility conflicts are

not uncommon to encounter during

construction of a project of this size

and scope, the tight timeline to

complete all of the work and then

perform the final paving before winter

was not accomplished.

The map shows the anticipated status

of the project as of the December road

opening date. For additional project

information, please visit the project

HOLLY STREET

INTERSECTIONS

Work is complete for the Holly Street

Intersection project with the exception

of the landscape walls along the west

side of the new walk at the Powers and

Prentice intersections. These walls were

added to the project to improve the

transition from the new walk to the

existing grades at the landscape

entrances into the Preserve subdivision

and are anticipated to be done in

November.

The project scope includes

rehabilitating the three degraded

intersections at Powers, Berry and

Prentice that were originally

constructed in 2000. The project

consisted of placing an “unbonded

concrete overlay” on top of the

existing concrete intersections at

Powers and Berry. This innovative

solution required less closure time

while still achieving the high quality

colored and stamped concrete look

desired by the community.

please contact John Wannigman,

Project Manager, at

BELLEVIEW AND HOLLY

TURN LANE

The construction work at Belleview

and Holly, which occurred during the

late summer of this year, was for the

installation of a northbound right turn

lane. The purpose of the project is to

help alleviate the delays that

northbound traffic experienced at the

intersection. The roadway work was

completed at the end of August and

crews were able to work around the

school hours to minimize the impacts

on traffic. The landscaping work is

currently being completed. The traffic

signal upgrade will occur in 2018 in

coordination with the Colorado

TAKE THE WINTER CHILL OFF

WITH HOT REBATE SAVINGS

Cooler temperatures mean it’s time to turn on the heat. If you

need a new furnace, consider a high-efficiency model to save

money on energy bills and get $300-$400 in rebates from Xcel

Energy. Improve your insulation and air sealing and the rebates

can reach over $1,000.

What’s so great about a high-efficiency furnace?

• It provides a more consistent temperature and greater

comfort.

• It helps your AC system work more efficiently, kind of like

having new lungs for your new heart — a matched system

works most efficiently.

• 95% AFUE (Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency) means only

5% of fuel is unused. Less waste is good for the planet.

High-efficiency water heaters are another great way to save

energy and money because water heaters typically consume

half of the energy in your home. Xcel Energy offers rebates of

up to $450 on qualifying water heater models.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

CITIZENS’ POLICE ACADEMY

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 Citizens’ Police Academy occurs annually and meets

Thursday nights from 6 to 9 p.m., and two optional

Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Greenwood Village

City Hall located at 6060 South Quebec Street.

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 Team, Traffic Safety Unit, Investigations and

School Resource Officers. The sessions are very interactive

with police officers and several sessions will have hands-on

activities such as high-risk traffic stops and use of less-thanlethal

weapons. During each session, you will be able to ask

questions and interact with police officers and Academy

instructors.

As an Academy participant, you will receive a comprehensive

behind-the-scenes tour of the Police Department, including

the 9-1-1 Communications Center. Upon successful

DEADLINE EXTENDED

The deadline to drop off leaves in Village Greens Park has been

extended to Sunday, November 12. You can dispose of all those

piles of fall leaves in an environmentally friendly way by taking

loose or bagged leaves to the dedicated area of the north

parking lot in Village Greens Park any day of the week. Village

staff add the material as a soil amendment to help establish

native grasses by adding nutrients, helping retain moisture and

providing a place for soil bore microorganisms to live.

Please do not sweep leaves or grass clippings into the street,

as our sweepers are not equipped to pick up large piles of

leaves and debris. For more information, please contact Public

completion of the Citizens’ Police Academy, each participant

and his or her family are invited to attend the graduation

ceremony and dinner.

An integral component of the Academy is the participation

in a police patrol ride along. This will be scheduled to take

place outside the class time at a mutually convenient time for

staff and participants. This experience is important in

creating a true understanding of what an officer’s job is like

and contributes to an exciting, interactive learning

experience.

The next Greenwood Village Citizens’ Police Academy will

begin on Thursday, February 22, 2018, and continue

through Thursday, May 10, 2018. The two Saturday sessions

are April 7, 2018, and May 5, 2018. Citizens’ Academy

application forms are available at the Police Department

6060 South Quebec Street. The Academy Coordinator will

contact you to confirm your selection to participate.

Potential candidates must

• Be at least 18 years old;

• Have no felony convictions;

• And have no misdemeanor convictions within one year of

application.

Any requirement may be waived or modified upon review

and approval by the Police Chief.

The Academy is free of charge and open to anyone, not just

residents of Greenwood Village. For more information,

Delicious food, outstanding

customer service and ongoing

creativity are attributes of Chickfil-A

from its inception. These

well-known, documented qualities

are just the beginning of what

Chick-fil-A has brought to

Greenwood Village and the

surrounding community. Chickfil-A

offers a variety of delicious

items ranging from their classic

chicken sandwiches to grilled

chicken salads to their madefrom-scratch,

freshly squeezed

lemonade.

Meet Craig Goettsche, Franchised

Restaurant Operator of Chick-fil-

A in the Village. Starting a career

with Chick-fil-A at the age of 15,

Craig knows the industry inside

and out. A proud husband and

father of four, Craig relocated

from California to Colorado when

the location in the Village became

available. Craig selected the

Village due to the excellent school

system and the Village’s heavy

focus on community involvement.

Craig has been operating the

Chick-fil-A in the Village for over

three years now. “I am truly

grateful,” said Craig, “to have such

a wonderful community and

appreciate all of the patience and

patronage the Village offers.”

When it comes to community

involvement, Craig goes out of his

way to make a difference. Known

as “Spirit Night,” the Chick-fil-A

in Greenwood Village encourages

local schools or non-profit

organizations to visit the

restaurant on a designated evening

of choice. Profits from the sales

benefit the hosted organization.

Chick-fil-A describes Spirit Night

as “the ultimate low-cost, noeffort

fundraiser!” and opens its

doors to many Greenwood Village

fundraising organizations. They

always enjoy being the host for

events that benefit the

community. Celebrity Autograph

Night has been one of the popular

and fun events. Chick-fil-A in

Greenwood Village is always

looking to host fun events that

benefit the community.

Do you prefer Chick-fil-A to

come to you? Unique to the

Greenwood Village location, the

new Chick-fil-A food truck travels

as an added convenience! Have a

holiday party coming up? The

Chick-fil-A truck is available for

catering events. Fiddlers Green is

Chick-fil-A food truck offers its

food favorites!

ALL COLORADO

ART SHOW

On Saturday October 14 over 300 art

lovers packed the Curtis Center for the Arts

to celebrate two special occasions. First was

the opening reception for the 34th Annual

All Colorado Art Show. The show features

over 50 artists in all mediums and subject

matters. This year artists were asked to

present a piece that addresses why they live

and create in Colorado. The exhibit

highlights some of Colorado’s finest

working artists. The works will be on

display through December 23.

Attendees had another reason to celebrate

with the recent remodeling of the Curtis

Center. This summer the art center made

some major updates to the building. In

addition to the new bathrooms on the

overhauled, additional storage space was

added and the Center made upgrades to

make it more ADA compliant to provide

an even better customer experience. Come
