CELEBRATE CITIES

AND TOWNS

Greenwood Village, along with cities and towns in

Colorado, in coordination with the Colorado

Municipal League (CML), will once again celebrate

Colorado Cities & Towns Week

September 11-17, 2018. This week is

dedicated as a time for every city and town

to educate its citizens on the importance

of local government and its services

provided to the community. Although we

do not have any formal program or event

planned for this year’s Cities and Towns

Week, I ask you (as a resident or business)

the next time you are out, to look around

and notice just how special Greenwood

Village is. From the parks, trails, and open

space, to the traffic signals and roadways, to the

impeccable customer service provided by Police,

Public Works, and Parks, Trails, and Recreation

— you cannot help but notice the energy and

genuine Greenwood Village hospitality that abounds in our

city. Greenwood Village is the place to be because of its local

government, the policies of City Council, and the actions of

staff to protect and preserve what each of us has grown to

appreciate since the first day we arrived.

GVPD ACHIEVES STATE

ACCREDITATION A SECOND TIME

The City Council and I are extremely pleased to announce

that our Police Department achieved State Accreditation

from the

Colorado

Association

of Chiefs of

Police

(CACP). In

Colorado,

there are

only 55

other

agencies

that have

achieved

CACP

Accreditation.

In

order to

be an

accredited agency, the Police Department must have very

defined policies and procedures, and all employees must

regularly follow the policies and procedures. This year’s

CACP State Accreditation for the Village is the second

accreditation; the first accreditation the Greenwood Village

Police Department received was in 2012. The Accreditation

Committee of the CACP reviewed the Police Department’s

policies and procedures and found the department to be in

compliance with best practices in daily operations.

Accreditation is the process by which our Police Department

earns trust and respect in the community. This process allows

the Police to ensure they are implementing best practices in

all areas of law enforcement to maximize the highest quality

of services to the community.

For more information, please call Chief Dustin Varney at

303-486-8266 or email dvarney@greenwoodvillage.com.

MASTER GARDENERS

UN-BEET-ABLE AT

ARAPAHOE COUNTY FAIR

The CSU Extension — Arapahoe County Colorado Master

Gardeners who plan, plant, tend, and harvest the garden at

Silo Park had garnered tremendous success with their entries

at the Arapahoe County Fair in July. They entered produce

grown in the garden in five categories: horticulture,

floriculture, fruit, arrangement, and special contests. In total

they won an impressive 39 first place ribbons, 16 second

place ribbons, and 3 third place ribbons. They also won both

the decorated cabbage head and tallest sunflower special

contests.

Mayor Ron reports

continued from page 2

The Master Gardeners have harvested a whopping 627.5

pounds of vegetables so far this year from the Silo Park

garden. The big producers this summer have been summer

squash, cucumbers, carrots, beets and parsnips. Tomatoes,

peppers, eggplant and several other vegetables are also being

grown. All produce is donated to the Covenant Cupboard

Food Pantry in Greenwood Village.

If you need expert gardening advice, the Master Gardeners

will be on hand to answer questions at the fall Garden in a

Box pickup event that will take place on Saturday, September

15 from 12-3 p.m. here at City Hall. You are welcome to

chat with a Master Gardener whether or not you are picking

up a Garden in a Box. For more information, please call

Parks, Trails, and Recreation at 303-486-5773.

POLICE VERSUS PUBLIC WORKS

Greenwood Village is a great place to live; but it’s also a fun

place to work! This summer, in the middle of their hard work

and dedication to maintain our Village and look at ways to

make it even better, employees of our Police and Public

Works Department took a break to enjoy some fun

competition under the sun. What started as a feud over

cookies and donuts turned into a trike race between the two

departments. Although the Police Department went home

with the winning trophy, it was great to see so many

employees attended and cheered their fellow co-workers on

to the finish line. I expect this will become an annual race

every summer; stay tuned for next year’s event.

GAMBEL OAK

BORER FOUND IN

GREENWOOD

VILLAGE

CAPABLE OF DAMAGING

ONLY DAMAGED

STRESS TREES

The Gambel Oak Borer or beetle has

been found in the Village. These flatheaded

oak borers are not aggressive

and are only capable of damaging

stressed trees. Vigorous trees should

not be at risk.

Affected trees may not show obvious

signs of infestation until the foliage

browns, branches die back and the

crown thins. Infestations typically

occur in the upper crown, then

progress downward. Some infested

trees may have areas of wet or gummy

bark. If infested, trees will have zig-zag

larval galleries. The galleries range

from 1/32 to 1/8 inch wide and may

completely encircle small diameter

stems. There may be patches of wet

inner bark and some dark staining of

the wood near the gallery. The galleries

can be directly beneath bark or under

1 or 2 rings of wood. Larvae of these

beetles are very narrow and have

flattened, segmented white bodies up

to 1 inch in length. The head end is as

narrow as the rest of the body.

Trees vigorous enough to fight the

infestation may have raised areas of

bark above the winding larval galleries.

The adult exit holes in the bark are

D-shaped and are a little over 1/16

inch wide. The lack of external

symptoms can be deceptive and a

small amount of bark should be peeled

GOVERNMENT

back to confirm an infestation.

Properly water and otherwise maintain trees are

recommended. Lightly infested trees may be

treated with bark sprays to prevent further

infestation. Systemics can also be applied to kill

larvae under the bark. Stressed landscape trees

should be soil treated with imidacloprid or the

bark sprayed with permethrin. Oak trees that

seem particularly at risk are those that have been

transplanted within the last few years or are

stressed from drought, compacted soil, improper

planting or some combination of these.

COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS

The following citizens were appointed and/or reappointed by the Greenwood Village City Council to serve on the various commissions:

Tina Hamilton, At-Large

Arts & Humanities Council

Tina is looking forward to serving the

people of Greenwood Village (especially

in the area of performing arts). She’s

written and implemented grants that

facilitate partnerships between local

performing arts institutions and area

schools. She enjoys creating and

producing musical theater performances

which address social justice issues and allow local young

artists opportunities to use their gifts to inspire others.

She’s volunteered her time in area high schools conducting

musical theater workshops and at elementary schools aiding

them in preparing and performing dance, drama and singing

presentations.

Tina is the Founding Director of Education at HArts Academy,

a 501(c)(3) private non-profit organization, which has been

in existence since 2014. She is a Licensed Kindermusik

Educator, vocal coach, director, writer and producer. She has

worked professionally in musical theater since 1995 and in

2001 she won Best Actress for the Season in Los Angeles

for her role of Amy in Stephen Sondheim’s Company. Around

the same time she won Teacher of the Year in Los Angeles

where she taught Fourth Grade and general music at the

elementary school level. In between Los Angeles and

Greenwood Village she’s lived on Whidbey Island, WA where

she wrote and performed in her one woman a cappella

musical based on Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse. In addition,

she was honored to serve our military families in her role of

Child and Youth Trainer for NAS Whidbey Island. She also

teaches First Aid, CPR/AED for the American Heart

Association and conducts music and movement classes for

adults with special needs.

Tina graduated from the University of Nevada at Las Vegas

with a Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre Performance via

several vocal performance scholarships and studied with the

legendary Marni Nixon (singing voice for Audrey Hepburn in

My Fair Lady, Natalie Wood in West Side Story among others).

She received her teaching credential through Los Angeles

School District Intern Program.

Tina is the mother of four caring and compassionate children

who have all attended Belleview Elementary and now attend

both Campus Middle School and Cherry Creek High School.

She’s lived in Greenwood Village since 2014 and absolutely

loves it!

Henry Siegel, At-Large

Arts & Humanities Council

Henry Siegel is an Emmy award-winning

television producer who has covered virtually

every major sports event. He has been

responsible for the development of several

networks and the innovative programming that

they present. His career began by making

documentary films and his first effort,

“Convention,” was selected to appear at the

Cannes Film Festival. He joined CBS News, becoming a Director before

accepting a position with CBS Sports where he participated in the

production of the NFL, NBA, NCAA Basketball/Football, NASCAR, boxing

and the Pan-American Games. Subsequently he served as Senior Sports

Producer for NBC in Chicago and then Executive Sports Producer for

CBS in Denver. His reputation for breaking sports news stories was

instrumental in being selected as Executive Producer and News Director

for Fox Sports Net. The achievements he enjoyed there were duplicated

when he participated in the launch of another sports network, Altitude

Sports & Entertainment, and was responsible for all original

programming.

He continued his career becoming a successful independent producer/

consultant capturing premier clients from New York to Los Angeles. In

addition, Mr. Siegel originated the Sports Journalism course of study at

UCLA and has lectured at several colleges. He’s the past President of the

Board of Directors for the Denver Open Media Foundation, a non-profit

organization dedicated to providing opportunities for the community to

utilize communication technology. Currently he is an Adjunct Professor

in the Journalism Department at the University of Colorado in Boulder

and a member of the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council.

Len Goldstein, District 1

(reappointment)

Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission

Len Goldstein moved to Colorado in 1972 and

was appointed a Deputy State Public Defender

for Denver. He has practiced law since 1972 both

as a private practitioner and as General Counsel

to three publicly traded corporations. He has

lived in Greenwood Village since 1995 with his

wife Martha, who preceded him on Parks, Trails

and Recreation Commission. He continues his practice of law as a solo

practitioner in Greenwood Village.

As daily users of the High Line Canal trail, Len and Martha realize the

importance of the trails and open spaces in the Village. Len walks the

trail daily and several times a week you may meet him astride his horse

either on the trail or at the Alexander Lane or Rollin D. Barnard

the Village’s TV station. Preserving and conserving and

expanding the Village’s natural assets is Len’s highest priority

for the residents of Greenwood Village.

Margaret Griffes, District 2

(reappointment)

Parks, Trails and Recreation

Commission

Margaret Griffes and her husband,

Doug, have been global nomads since

childhood and included their two sons,

Andrew and Niko, in their travels until

moving to (two homes) in Greenwood

Hills from Egypt and England in 1999.

They have found their home!

Margaret decided to volunteer on the PTR Commission six

years ago and is delighted and honored to be reappointed for

her fourth term. On PTR, two of the highlights were when she

was on the sub-committees for both the musical instruments

in Westlands Park and the senior exercise equipment in Curtis

Park. Other highlights are collaborating and learning with other

commissioners and the outstanding leadership staff has

provided.

Margaret has her degree in Medical Microbiology with a

specialty in Clinical Laboratory Science but for the last 20

years has been doing residential remodeling (starting in

England!) with a focus on green building. She is a LEED

Accredited Professional and has volunteered with the US

Green Building Council for over 10 years with one year as the

state education chair organizing presentations of the top highperformance

projects. One of the areas of focus has been in

land and water use beyond xeriscaping so the city’s focus on

LID (Low Impact Development) has been an inspiration. The

citizen-organized Jasmine Project in Greenwood Hills to study

residential water use optimization in coordination with Denver

Water offered further inspiration. She decided to convert over

half an acre to edible landscaping nine years ago to recapture

our historical land use for agriculture. She was appointed to

CSU Citizens Advisory Committee for Arapahoe County about

five years ago and through this committee she has been able

to be part of two Urban Farm Tours, one this August for

Master Gardeners, to show edible landscaping as an attractive

option. She also walks, bikes, rows, skis, travels and reads

after summer farming! She speaks six languages and invites

District 2 residents to share their ideas, whether in English or

one of her many other languages!

Greenwood Village’s park, trails and open spaces are an

important part of community, health, and engagement with

nature that continues to inspire and motivate her. Thank you!

Eleanor Moller, District 2

(reappointment)

Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission

Ellie Moller and her family have lived in Greenwood

Village since they built their home in the Ladera

subdivision in 1970. She is a member of the

Greenwood Hills Homeowners Association, the

Ladera HOA and has been a member of the

Greenwood Athletic Club since it opened in 1987.

Greenwood Village open spaces, parks and trails

have been an important part of her family’s enjoyment of their

surroundings and she welcomes the opportunity to be a part of the

decision-making process for development and preservation of the

areas that are such an asset to the Village.

Ellie has a background in library science, journalism and teaching. She

taught high school English for 25 years at one of the Denver Public

Schools and sponsored the mountain club there for 12 years. As a

member of the Colorado Mountain Club, Bicycle Adventure Club,

SkiMeisters, and as a staff member of the YMCA Women’s Fitness

Camp, she has been deeply involved in outdoor experiences for many

years and has appreciated having access to parks, trails and open

space in Greenwood Village. Ellie also worked with nine other families

to develop Ladera as a co-op community.

Brent Neiser, District 3

(reappointment)

Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission

Brent is chair of the PTR Commission and

previously served on Greenwood Village’s Citizens

Budget Review Committee.

Brent and his wife Marion moved to Colorado in

1985 and settled in Greenwood Village in 1990.

Their children, all adopted from the foster care

system, were excited about moving to the Village

with Orchard Hills Park to explore and play tennis, plus fishing at

Tommy Davis Park.

Through his work at the National Endowment for Financial Education,

Brent blends his background in public policy, personal finance and

philanthropy into scores of national personal finance projects and

programs.

Brent serves on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB)

Consumer Advisory Board in Washington and a committee of the

Denver Foundation. He and Marion own small businesses in Colorado

Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.

For variety and fun at home Brent plays drums and Latin percussion.

He also swims, snowboards and attempts to stay upright on his

stand-up paddleboard and does yoga (not at the same time).

A NEW TAKE OF

BRANDING FROM A

LOCAL DESIGNER

Cara Jaffee is a native

Midwesterner who has planted

roots in Denver, Colorado since

2014. Her adventures on both the

west (LA) and east coast (NYC)

made Denver the perfect home, as she

found the grounded, creative, and

entrepreneurial community in Colorado

the right place to start her branding and

graphics company.

Cara

started ceej

Sustainable

year,

which focuses on ideation, project management, marketing,

branding, and graphic design. The ceej design firm

incorporates environmental impact with strategic and

sustainable design. In sustainable design practices, ceej strives

to push itself and its clients to realize how and why we

produce designed materials (digital, print, and product)

brings economic vitality, keeps communities healthy, and can

help protect the environment.

Ceej also encourages brands and businesses to realize that

their message is an ongoing story. Digital storytelling helps

MEMBER spotlight

BUSINESS

connect businesses to people, and the right people. When

working with ceej, companies will be guided through

methods to illuminate who their target audience is

and how to better service them whether its’

products, services, or business to business

interactions.

At the macro level, ceej leads clients through user

experience, messaging, marketing, branding,

design, and sustainable brand concepts. At the

micro level, the team at ceej delivers logos, websites,

packaging, social media strategy and content, data

visualizations, presentations, marketing strategies, brand

consulting, and brand management. Overall, sustainable

brand concepts help analyze how what we produce together

affects business, employees, consumers, and a carbon

footprint. Find ceej on the web: www.carajaffeedesign.com

Cara’s push for sustainable design was inspired by her love of

the outdoor world, studies in nutrition, and learning from

other leaders in sustainable design and manufacturing.

Cara started as a soloprenuer but collaborates with her

creative team members as each project needs (copywriters,

videographers, photographers, and SEO experts). All of her

entrepreneurial endeavors also feature a philanthropic wing.

Her companies plan to contribute to the National Parks

Conservation Association at the end of the year to honor

their mission in investing into and sustaining healthy

communities and lands.

ZEAL — FOOD FOR ENTHUSIASTS — OPENING FALL 2018

Zeal at The Landmark • 5370 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard, Suite 107

www.zealfood.com • 720-708-6309 • Open Daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

If you have a passion for healthy eating and a high-energy

lifestyle, savor whole fresh foods, believe in superb

ingredients that are transcendentally delicious and really,

really good for you, and appreciate an environment that

caters to you, welcome to Zeal — Food for Enthusiasts.

Zeal at The Landmark positions itself as an informal, health

minded global eatery.

According to the Oxford Dictionary, Zeal is defined as “great

energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or objective.”

Wayde Jester, founder and chief enthusiast, and five-time

Ironman competitor, was motivated to create Zeal by his

need for food that was both fuel and medicine. Jester says he

was “inspired by the possibility of a better way to fuel an

active lifestyle and a kinder way to treat the earth that

supports us.”

The original Zeal Restaurant opened in December 2013 in

Boulder, Colorado. Zeal at The Landmark is their second

location. Greenwood Village was selected because Jester saw

tremendous opportunities for bringing his style of food into

the Village due to its strong presence of corporate occupants

as well as the attractive demographics of its residents.

Zeal is a full-service restaurant that offers a wide variety of

food made using only the highest quality organic ingredients

sourced locally to the maximum extent possible. This casual

organic restaurant and juice bar offers breakfast, lunch,

dinner, happy hour, and delicious cocktails seven days a

week. At Zeal, the menu changes seasonally to reflect

produce that is available locally, and their cuisine is inspired

by world flavors. They offer vegetarian and vegan dishes as

well as options for meat-lovers so that friends and family can

dine together. No matter what you choose, you’ll enjoy the

delicious flavors and have peace of mind knowing all

ingredients are natural, organic, and real.

Chef John Broening will lead the kitchen at Zeal at The

Landmark and brings with him a wealth of experience from

some of the top restaurants in Denver since 2003, and prior

to that in San Francisco and France. John has developed the

menu of many well-known Denver restaurants, including

most recently Avelina, Duo and Spuntino.

Chef John is excited to be leading the kitchen at Zeal because

the style of food Zeal values reflects the way John personally

likes to eat. Enjoy breakfast options such as Zeal’s signature

acai bowls, gluten free banana pancakes, their breakfast

burrito with quinoa, scrambled eggs, feta, and salsa verde or

stir-fried summer veggies with poached eggs. For lunch and

dinner, Zeal offers a variety of sandwiches, bowls and entrée

dishes. Dive into their classic mighty bowl, try their poke

bowl or enjoy the savory spice of their ramen bowl with

house made kimchi. Their summer menu features mussels

a stronger immune system, and the release of bad habits and

unhealthy cravings while truly nourishing your body. Join the

In addition to dine in or take-out options, Zeal also offers

catering for corporate events, weddings, and other special

occasions. At Zeal, they believe that one of the best ways to

connect with family, friends, and community is around a

warm table. Whether you are planning a gathering at your

home, a luncheon or happy hour to recognize your staff, or a

fully catered wedding or event, Zeal has you covered. From a

simple buffet line to a fully hosted meal, Zeal will customize

a plan that works with your budget and style. They can

produce a local, organic spread that can accommodate

everyone from your paleo cousin to your vegan sister.
