GOVERNMENT Mayor Ron continued from page 3 VILLAGE VOICES LAUNCHED IN FEBRUARY I am pleased to report that you now have the chance to tell us how you really feel about Greenwood Village… … online! As part of our efforts to actively expand our efforts to engage the community and have a better dialogue with all of you — our residents, we are excited to announce we just launched a new, online community engagement tool called VILLAGE VOICES. We believe this will be a great way for twoway communication with our residents online and get your input on important issues or projects in a more hands-on and involved manner. VILLAGE VOICES will be used as an engagement tool anytime we need to hear from you on Village issues and projects, and even to supplement engaging with neighborhoods about planning and zoning issues. VILLAGE VOICES launched to coincide with engaging the community about the Transportation Master Plan so this is the right time for you to get involved and begin using this online community engagement tool for this very important quality of life issue — traffic. VILLAGE VOICES is fully viewable when you go to the site, however, you must register to be able to interact and complete surveys, leave ideas, use the interactive maps, and more. The registration is pretty basic, it just requires an email address and password. For more information, please call the City Manager’s Office at 303-486-5745. GV RECOGNIZED AT DIGNIFIED HONORS CEREMONY In February, Greenwood Village City Hall was humbled to host a special recognition ceremony of the Federal Protection Agency with its honorable guest, the U.S. Army 10th Special Forces Group Commander Colonel Lawrence Ferguson. In November of 2017, Col. Ferguson participated in a Dignified Honor Motorcade for KIA Sergeant Stephen Cribben and observed what many of our community members have, law enforcement and fire department vehicles on highway overpasses and the personnel of these departments rendering honors as the Dignified Honors Motorcade passes through each city. Col. Ferguson was extremely touched and grateful for agencies coming together to honor fallen soldiers and their family members and wanted to take time out of his extremely busy schedule to travel from Fort Carson in Colorado Springs and personally thank every jurisdiction including the Greenwood Village Police Department, Larkspur Fire, Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, South Metro Fire, Aurora Fire, Denver Fire, The Flag Guys, American Legion Riders, Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT), Castle Rock Fire, Castle Rock Police, Lone Tree Police, and Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office. Every Dignified Honors Motorcade is posted on a Facebook page dedicated to our fallen heroes. Please visit Protection-Agency. GV Please visit VILLAGE VOICES at Or you can access it through a new icon below the picture banner on our homepage at RAMBLE WITH RON Due to the winter season, Ramble with Ron will be suspended until the spring.
