ANOTHER

SUCCESSFUL

GREENWOOD

VILLAGE DAY

Greenwood Village Day once again

was successful thanks to many Village

employees. Their

dedication provided a

high level of service to

create this memorable

event for our residents.

While I would like to list

and personally thank

each member of our staff,

I will refrain from doing

so for fear of missing

someone. If you attended

the event and interact

with Village staff in the

near future, please pass

on your appreciation

directly to them.

I had the opportunity to observe

Greenwood Village Day happenings

and interact with many of you from

the steering wheel of a golf cart. It was

great to ride around and see all of our

residents coming together to enjoy all

the festivities, including the fireworks,

which was another first-rate

performance. I also enjoyed giving

ride-alongs to members of the

community and staff.

BACK TO SCHOOL

SAFETY

Whether your student is headed back

to elementary, middle, or high school,

August can be an exciting yet busy

time for everyone as they prepare for

another year of learning. With all the

fun and excitement, I want to make

sure parents as well as students are

aware of back to school safety tips to

start the new school year right. You

can find these important tips, provided

by the Police Department on pages

10-11 of this Newsletter. If you ever

have any concerns related to your

child’s safety, including traffic safety

around schools, please don’t hesitate to

contact your designated Police School

Resource Officer or the Police

Department at 303-773-2525.

SUNDANCE HILLS

PARADE

During this year’s July 4th celebration,

I was honored to participate in two

parades with Sundance Hills and

Village North neighborhoods. Bud

Biggers provided his 1931 Ford Model

A, driven by his college junior

grandson Cherry Creek High School

alumnus Mitchell Biggers, as my

parade vehicle. Bud’s grandfather

bought the vehicle from a Ford dealer

as a new car. In pristine condition,

with 32,000 plus miles, it was a

memorable ride. Thanks Messieurs

Biggers!

AN EXCEPTIONAL

CUSTOMER

EXPERIENCE AT

LANDMARK

THEATRE

Service is exceptional in Greenwood

Village! For the past several months, as

part of my report, I have highlighted a

business and one of their employees

who contribute to an exceptional

customer service experience. After all,

people are our most important asset!

Ever since my parents took me to see

Bambi and Fantasia, I have enjoyed

movies. The cinema experience

culminated with my appearance as an

extra, with a center screen headshot, in

Francis Ford Coppola’s, “Gardens of

Stone.”

Accordingly, this month, I recognize

my favorite movie theatre usher, ticket

tearer, and box office keeper —

Mr. Ted Posselius. Ted has been at The

Landmark Theatre at Greenwood

Village since it first opened 10 years

ago. A retired attorney, Ted has been

VILLAGE CENTER STATION

FINAL OFFICE TOWER

COMPLETED

SPECTRUM COMMUNICATIONS

IS SOLE TENANT

This summer, Shea Properties completed construction of

Village Center Station II (Spectrum Plaza), the final building

of their Village Center Station development located on the

west side of I-25, just north of the Arapahoe Light Rail

Station. The Class AA building sits on 5.1 acres and

encompasses a 12-story office tower, a 7- level parking

structure with 1,200 car parking spaces, a 2-story wrapper

building for screening, all totaling 325,000 square feet. The

development included extension of the Plaza that was

completed in 2015, and 9,500 square feet of retail/restaurant

space within the ground floor of the wrapper building,

adjacent to the plaza.

“Spectrum Plaza was the final piece that makes Shea’s vision

of developing a high quality development of three office

towers, with a pedestrian plaza and community gathering

place a reality,” said Mayor Ron Rakowsky. “The

development speaks for itself as it embodies a stunning

architectural statement that portrays perfection for an office

environment in Greenwood Village and along the I-25

corridor.”

Shea Properties development at Village Center Station, which

have been or will be LEED green certified, includes

construction of a total of three office towers; Village Center

Station I was completed in 2008; the second tower, the

CoBank Center was completed in December 2015; and the

third and final building — Spectrum Plaza is now complete

and is fully occupied by Spectrum (Charter)

Communications and will be home to 1,800 employees.

“The three-building campus, adjacent to the plaza, is a

realization of the original master plan. We have been true to

a vision of creating a modern office campus energized by a

common outdoor amenity and gathering place with ground

level-retail. We are proud to see the last piece of the puzzle

being developed,” said Peter Culshaw, Executive Vice

President, Shea Properties.

The development of the Village Center and its nearly 98

acres around the Arapahoe Light Rail Station also included

completion in 2017 of Granite Place at Village Center on the

east side of I-25 adjacent to the light rail station. Granite

Place at Village Center includes 280,000-square foot office

property on 5.24 acres, consisting of a 10-story, Class AA

office building with a separate six-story, 986 parking space

structure. The building is located within walking distance of

the Arapahoe Light Rail Station.

“For nearly 10 years, we have been working with major

landowners on the development of our Village Center on

both sides of I-25,” said Mayor Ron Rakowsky. “We

appreciate the investment the business community has made

in Greenwood Village and high quality development that has

made our community a special place to conduct business and

work.”

MAKING A difference

ORDINANCE

UPDATE

WILD ANIMALS

AND WILD BIRDS

This is a “corrected” version from

the original version printed in

the July 2018 Newsletter.

The Village Code was recently

amended regarding wild animals and

wild birds in Greenwood Village. The

amended ordinance allows property

owners the ability to protect their

personal and real property from

damage from wild animals when it is

safe to do so, allowing the use of both

lethal and non-lethal control activities

under certain conditions. The specific

changes are as follows:

• Except as necessary for the

protection of real or personal

property against harm

from wild animals

itemized in C.R.S.

33-6-107(9) such as

coyotes, gophers,

raccoons and rabbits,

it is unlawful for any

person to willfully

shoot, capture, harass,

injure or destroy any

wild bird or wild

animal or to attempt

to shoot, capture,

harass, injure, or

destroy any such wild

bird or wild animal

within the city.

• Non-lethal control

activities in which

there is no direct

contact with geese and

that do not result in

harm to the geese,

goslings, eggs or nests

are allowed.

Although it does

allow lethal

control of wild

animals causing

harm to real or

personal

property, the

ordinance does

not allow the

discharge of a

firearm except

on private

property and

provided that

discharged

projectiles do

not leave the

property’s

boundary. Other than the exception

for protecting property from damage,

the ordinance continues to prohibit

the willful destruction of nests, nesting

place, burrows, eggs or young of any

wild bird or wild animal.

issues on your personal property,

GOVERNMENT

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.

BACK TO SCHOOL SAFETY

TRAVELING TO AND FROM SCHOOL

School Bus

• If your child’s school bus has lap/shoulder seat belts, make

sure your child uses one at all times when in the bus.

• Wait for the bus to stop before approaching it from the

curb.

• Do not move around on the bus.

• Check to see that no other traffic is coming before

crossing the street.

• Make sure to always remain in clear view of the bus driver.

• Tell your child not to bend down in front of the bus to tie

shoes or pick up objects, as the driver may not see him

before starting to move.

• Children should always board and exit the bus at locations

that provide safe access to the bus or to the school

building.

Cars

• All passengers should wear a seat belt and/or use an ageand

size-appropriate car safety seat or booster seat.

• All children younger than 13 years of age should ride in

the rear seat of vehicles. If you must drive more children

than can fit in the rear seat (when carpooling, for

example), move the front-seat passenger’s seat as far back

as possible and have the child ride in a booster seat if the

seat belts do not fit properly without it.

• Require seat belt use and limit the number of teen

passengers. Do not allow eating, drinking, cell phone

conversations or texting to prevent driver distraction; and

limit nighttime driving and driving in inclement weather.

Bicycles

• Always wear a bicycle helmet, no matter how short or

long the ride.

• Ride on the right, in the same direction as auto traffic.

• Use appropriate hand signals, and respect traffic lights and

stop signs.

• Wear bright colored clothing to increase visibility.

Walking To School

• Make sure your child’s walk to a school is a safe route with

well-trained adult crossing guards at every intersection.

Make sure your child walks to school on a safe route and always

with at least one other child.

• Carefully consider whether or not your child is ready to

walk to school without adult supervision.

• Brightly colored clothing will make your child more

visible to drivers.

• Teach your child never to talk to strangers or accept rides

or gifts from strangers. Remember, a stranger is anyone

you or your children don’t know well or don’t trust.

• Be sure that your child knows his or her home phone

number and address, your work number, the number of

another trusted adult and how to call 911 for emergencies.

BULLYING

When Your Child Is Bullied

• Help your child learn how to respond by looking the

bully in the eye, stand tall and stay calm, and walk away.

• Teach your child when and how to ask for help and make

friends with others.

• Alert school officials to the problems and work with them

on solutions.

• Make sure an adult who knows about the bullying can

watch out for your child’s safety and well-being when you

cannot be there.

When Your Child Is The Bully

• Be sure your child knows that bullying is never OK.

• Set firm and consistent limits on your child’s

PG. 10 GV NEWSLETTER | AUGUST 2018


GOVERNMENT

aggressive behavior.

• Be a positive role model, and use effective, non-physical

discipline, such as loss of privileges.

• Develop practical solutions with the school principal,

teachers, counselors, and parents of the children your

child has bullied.

DRIVERS IN SCHOOL ZONES

• The Flashing Yellow Light, School Zone areas indicate

that traffic must slow down from the beginning of the

lights until the next speed limit sign or signage that

indicates the school zone has ended. School Zone times

vary, and it is the driver’s responsibility to be aware and

drive according to the posted signs and lights.

• Fines are doubled in school zones.

• Stop for school buses. Colorado law dictates a driver of a

vehicle, upon meeting from either direction any school

bus which has stopped and has activated its red flashing

lights, is required to stop the vehicle. Drivers do not need

to stop for a school bus upon meeting or passing a school

bus which is on a different roadway. School bus drivers are

authorized to report violators to the appropriate law

enforcement agency who may issue a citation on the basis

of the information provided.

• Remember that the sun can obscure your vision any

time of the year. Use visors and sunglasses to reduce glare

and make it easier to see pedestrians.

• Pedestrians, once in a crosswalk, have the right of way.

If you maintain a safe speed for conditions and foot traffic

you should have plenty of time to slow down and stop

safely.

• When the traffic lights go to yellow is the time to slow

Drivers should be cautious when driving around schools and

obey all traffic regulations for the safety of students.

down and prepare to stop. Please don’t drive to beat the

lights. They are timed based on the speed limits and

traffic. When you rush one light you often just get

stopped at the next one.

• Be patient, be aware. Many people are distracted in these

hurried times. Make sure the intersection is clear of people

and traffic before going ahead, even if you do have a green

light.

• Right on Red. Where allowed, and not all intersections

are clear for right on red, the car at the red light does not

have the right of way. Cars turning on arrows, or going

with the flow of traffic always have the right of way.

Lunch: Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m.; Dinner: Monday-Thursday 4-9:30 p.m., Friday-Saturday 4-10 p.m., Sunday 1-8 p.m.

Looking for a fun lunch spot with

great food and a relaxing environment

or a restaurant with generous after

work specials? Desire a restaurant

where you can enjoy a variety of

delicious meal choices including highquality

sushi, sashimi and Mongolian

dishes? If this sounds like your kind of

place, look no further than the

recently opened ASA Sushi, the newest

sushi restaurant to open in the City of

Greenwood Village.

ASA Sushi is a family owned and

operated local restaurant, managed by

Emma, that strives to bring a touch of

warmth and quality to the community.

Emma, who grew up in Colorado, has

always felt very close to Greenwood

Village from her siblings attending

Cherry Creek High School to enjoying

many of the community events

provided in the City. Being part of the

Greenwood Village community

growing up made her decision very

simple when deciding where she

wanted to open ASA Sushi. The owner

took over an existing express sushi

business and completely renovated the

interior and character to create ASA

Sushi, a place where customer

satisfaction is a top priority.

Emma stated, “I didn’t know what to

expect working with the City in the

beginning; however, after going to

City Hall and talking with the City’s

community representatives, I felt

relieved at how welcoming the City

made me feel.” This experience

confirmed Emma’s vision about

Greenwood Village being an ideal

environment to start her business.

Emma established ASA Sushi on the

foundation to always choose quality

over quantity and to ensure the

meeting of customers’ satisfaction at

every meal. She also focuses on

customer attentiveness to make sure

customers are pleased with every dish

and encourages customer feedback to

support the development of dishes to

reach an even higher standard. Emma

said, “We pay close attention to the

small details not only in preparing

their food but to the needs of our

customers to provide an above and

beyond experience to all that come.”

ASA Sushi offers a variety of sushi,

sashimi, house rolls and Mongolian

dishes all prepared by their sushi chef

with over 15 years of experience.

Dishes rotate daily as all products are

handpicked from a variety of vendors

to ensure freshness and high quality.

With daily lunch specials, the menu is

always changing and includes a large

selection of special house rolls like the

ASA Roll (with a whole lobster tail

inside), lobster salad, cucumber/

asparagus/snow crab salad with garlic

butter and a DTC Roll that is deep

fried with spicy tuna, jalapeno, cream

cheese and topped with unagi sauce,

masago and crunch.

In addition to the mouth-watering

dishes offered at ASA Sushi, there is a

full bar offering a variety of beer, sake

and wine. Currently they are offering a

“buy one get one half price” deal

during happy hour from 4:30 p.m.

until 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

ASA Sushi is designed to create an

enjoyable ambiance which makes

THE VILLAGE READ

FOR 2018

For the second year in a row the

Greenwood Village Cultural Arts

Program has partnered with

Arapahoe Libraries to present the

“Village Read.” The idea

encourages adults of all ages to

read one book and participate

in thought-provoking

discussions and activities derived

from the chosen book. The goals of the program are

to encourage leisure reading, create community conversations

and bring the community together through literature.

This year the group has chosen the book “White Plains” by

Colorado author David Hicks. In “White Plains,” Flynn

Hawkins is a graduate assistant at a prestigious university, on

his way to greatness and wisdom. But in the aftermath of

9/11, Flynn leaves his unhappy marriage and beloved

children, resigns his teaching position, and heads west, only

to get lost in his guilt and in the mountains of Colorado.

When he ends up stuck overnight in a snow drift during a

blizzard on the Continental Divide, he realizes he needs to

remake himself into the kind of man his children need him

to be. With wit and insight, David Hicks turns a

compassionate but unblinking eye on what it means to be

human — to be lost while putting yourself back together

again, to be cowardly while being brave, to fail and fail again

on the way to something that might

be success.

This year’s program will begin with

the Mayor’s Kickoff on August 2 at

7 p.m. at Koelbel Library.

Greenwood Village Mayor Ron

Rakowsky will interview the author

and give his insight into this year’s

book. See full listing of Village Read

events. All events are free and open

GREENWOOD VILLAGE ARTS

AND HUMANITIES COUNCIL

2019 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

On July 2, the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities

Council awarded their annual scholarships. The awards go to

two graduating seniors attending Arapahoe County schools

or living in Greenwood Village, that are pursuing degrees in

the arts. Each student receives $3,000 and their high schools

receive a $500 award for their art program. This year’s

winners are Hanna Dotson from Grandview High School

and Isaac Shin from Cherry Creek High School.

HANNA DOTSON

Hanna Dotson

graduated from

Grandview High

School in May 2018.

As a lover of theater

she has performed in

and worked on 23

shows between 6th

grade and senior year

including children’s

theatre, high school

theatre and

professional theatre in the Denver community. Hanna has

taken classes at the Denver Center for The Performing Arts

for three years and this year worked as a student counselor

there. Hanna’s all-time favorite performing experience is

Broadway to Africa, an annual musical revue that helps bring

teenagers from Africa and the Middle East to YoungLife

camps. When she is not taking voice, acting and dance

lessons, she enjoys game night with her family and baking

cookies. She is excited to spend the next four years doing

what she loves most as she pursues her Bachelor of Fine Arts

in Musical Theater at Millikin University in Illinois.

ISAAC SHIN

Isaac began drawing

dinosaurs at a young age.

Over time, he realized

that his artwork always

had meaning and his had

been influenced by

personal experiences and

beliefs. He believes that

art is a topic that no one

will ever fully

understand. People often

ask him, “What does

your artwork symbolize?” The idea that his compositions

always needed to have artistic significance frustrated him. He

just wanted to draw for fun and construct beautiful pieces.

His respect for the natural beauty of the world influences the

outcome of his artwork. He believes that in today’s society

people are so busy in their daily lives that they fail to see the

beauty in everything around them; therefore, they disrupt the

natural flow of the world. He is an artist dedicated to pulling

the covers off the issues and natural beauties that have arisen

and existed in this world. Isaac will be pursuing his Fine Arts

degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago this

fall.

ART WITH A HEART

Renee Reese, an art instructor at the Curtis Center for the Arts, believes in the power of giving and receiving an old fashioned

greeting card. She also knows the healing power of art, so she combined the two into a special class. In June, the Curtis Center

for the Arts hosted “Art with a Heart.” In this class, led by Renee, students created inspirational greetings cards with watercolor to

give to the Children’s Hospital of Colorado. The cards will be given to patients, parents and even staff when they need a little

pick me up. The cards were filled with handwritten messages, like “Bee Strong,” and whimsical images to help brighten

someone’s day and help them get through challenging times.

The students had such a blast creating the cards that another

class is being planned.
