VILLAGE GREENS

NORTH PARK

PHASE IV GRAND OPENING

October was a great month to celebrate Village

accomplishments. The first was the grand opening and

ribbon cutting of Village Greens North Park

Phase IV improvements on Tuesday, October

16. I was joined by Mayor Pro Tem and District

3 Councilmember George Lantz, District 4

Councilmembers Judy Hilton and Tom

Dougherty, Arapahoe County Commissioner

Nancy Sharpe, residents, and staff.

Phase IV improvements included an entrance to

the park with a large patio area, tables with

seating and shade structures, wayfinding signage

and a year-round plumbed restroom. The sunny

Ron Rakowsky fall evening showcased the beautiful design of

rrakowsky@ the entryway and allowed guests to sip hot cider

project was funded through the Village’s Capital

Improvement Program and supported by two significant

grants from Arapahoe County Open Spaces.

WALK TO SCHOOL DAY

Greenwood Village celebrated the Annual Walk to School Day with the children of

Greenwood Elementary in October. Greenwood Village promotes the annual Walk to

School Day to encourage children and adults of all ages to walk or bike to school and

other destinations. Walking or bicycling can

improve the overall health of people, improve air

quality and the environment by reducing car trips,

and create safer routes for bicyclists and pedestrians.

Greenwood Village is one of hundreds of

communities using Walk or Bike to School Day to

help change community culture and create options

for getting around.

For more information or to participate in the 2019

Annual Walk to School Day event, please call Cathy

Delap, Recreation Manager, at 303-486-5766 or

email cdelap@greenwoodvillage.com. For more

information on how you can get involved or to see

if your school in Greenwood Village is hosting an

event, visit www.walkbiketoschool.org.

BACK THE BLUE K-9

FORCE WORKS FOR

MINER AND RIGGS

Police dogs like our very own Miner

and Riggs are a great value to our

community. Not only are they both

adorable and fun in their own way,

they are well trained to work with

their police K-9 handlers to help

address crime in Greenwood Village.

Their training includes searching

buildings for suspects, entering the

building alone to locate and hold the

suspect if found hiding there. Police

dogs are also trained for jobs such as

bomb and narcotic detection.

Greenwood Village Police K-9’s Miner

and Riggs put their life on the line

every day as do all our police officers

to protect and serve, and ensure your

family is safe.

In October, Miner and Riggs were

guests of honor at a Back the Blue K-9

Force and Heroes with Paws event at

Kuni Lexus of Greenwood Village.

The purpose of the event, during

which District 4 Councilmember Tom

Dougherty and I attended, was to raise

monies for K-9s of the Greenwood

Village Police Department and the

I-25 and Arapahoe Road Interchange

Officer Jeff Mulqueen with Riggs.

Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office.

They are currently helping Hugo,

Colorado to help them find a K-9,

and raised funds for the K-9s at the

Fort Collins Police Department.

The funds raised by the non-profits

are earmarked to purchase supplies for

K-9s such as vests and trauma kits,

and other items that are essential for

the K-9s livelihood as a K-9 police

dog.

Officer Juan Villalva and

Councilmember Dougherty.

One of the highlights of the event was

K-9 Miner’s opportunity to show off

his biting skills on District 4

Councilmember Tom Dougherty.

Of course, Councilmember Dougherty

was in a protective suit during the

demonstration; it was interesting to

watch just how well trained our police

dogs are.

In December 2017, the Colorado

Department of Transportation, in partnership with

Arapahoe County, the City of Centennial, Southeast

Public Improvement Metropolitan District, and the

City of Greenwood Village, celebrated the

completion of the Arapahoe Road and I-25

Interchange Reconstruction Project. seven months

ahead-of-schedule and under budget. The completion

of this project is a monumental event for Greenwood

Village and the entire south Denver region.

The project’s $74 million budget including design

and right-of-way acquisition, was primarily funded by

CDOT’s Responsible Acceleration of Maintenance

and Partnerships (RAMP) program and local

matching funds of $4.1 million each from Arapahoe

County, the City of Centennial, the City of

Greenwood Village and the Southeast Public Improvement

Metropolitan District.

Public Outreach/Small Community Greenwood Village won

first place in this category for its 20th Anniversary of Public

Works and Parks Maintenance Day. For the past 20 years, the

Village has hosted this event, during National Public Works

week to promote awareness in the community of Public

Works and Parks Maintenance and recognize the efforts of

employees. The event included hosting students from

Belleview Elementary for a morning full of learning and

interactive activities. To commemorate this year’s event,

employees participated in a “Design a T-Shirt Contest” and

each employee voted on 1 of 6 t-shirt designs created by our

employees. The chosen design was used and a 20th

Anniversary commemorative t-shirt was provided to each

employee.

By creating a meaningful and well received event, we have

been able to maintain a highly successful and educational

event that teaches children about the services of Public Works

and Parks Maintenance, how they do it, and the outcomes it

brings to the Village community.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING

SAFETY TIPS

With the holidays upon us, the Village

would like everyone to have a safe

holiday season. Provided below are

some safety tips of which to be aware

and practice when doing your holiday

shopping.

• Be aware of your surroundings at

all times.

• When shopping, try to park in a

well-lit portion of the parking lot

or street.

• When you park your car, secure the

valuables that you have left in your

car by placing them in the trunk.

Do not leave cellular phones,

purses, CD cases, laptops, or any

other item of value in your parked

car where they can be seen. It is

better not to leave valuables in

the car at all. Make sure you close

your windows, lock your doors and

activate your car alarm, if you have

one.

• Do not leave purchased

merchandise in your parked car

where it can be seen. Put these

items in your trunk, or conceal

them inside the vehicle.

• Keep your purse on your body, not

left in a cart or in the car. If you

carry a small purse, carry it over

your shoulder under your coat.

Do not carry all of your credit cards

with you. Leave your unneeded

documents at home.

• Always be aware of the location of

your personal items. Know where

your purse, cellular phone, wallet,

packages, etc. are at all times. Do

not leave them unattended. Do not

overburden yourself with packages.

• When you are finished shopping,

have your keys in your hand before

reaching your car door. Take notice

of your surroundings. If you see

that someone is watching you and

that you may be a potential victim,

return to the store immediately, and

call security or the police

department at 9-1-1.

• Do whatever you need to keep safe,

even if it means asking a security

guard or a police officer to escort

you to your car. It is always better

to be safe than sorry.

If you have any questions or need

assistance, please call the Greenwood

Village Police Department at

303-773-2525 or call 9-1-1. 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

Control 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 designated as either a primary

or secondary route. Primary 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. Snow and ice

control operations begin in secondary areas (residential

neighborhoods) after primary roadways have been cleared.

Heavy snow accumulations may require repeated passes over

primary roadways before secondary routes are plowed.

Operations continue until the storm stops and all roadway

surfaces are cleared.

Snow is plowed and piled into an area that does not block

traffic flow. Removal of snow piles will only occur when

safety or accessibility has been jeopardized. Snow cannot be

piled in the center of the roadway because the thaw/freeze

cycle will cause ice on the roadway. Residential roadways are

not plowed from edge to edge to avoid covering sidewalks or

blocking driveways. If possible, residents are requested to

remove vehicles from the roadways during storms for better

clearing of snow.

RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALKS

AND DRIVEWAYS

ICE MITIGATION

There are certain locations in Village neighborhoods that are

prone to icy conditions due to shade or poor drainage. Once ice

forms, it is difficult to remove without damage to equipment or

infrastructure. Be on the lookout 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 also conduct snow and ice

control operations in the winter. A weather service provides

up-to-the-minute information regarding weather conditions.

Snow shifts are often activated in anticipation of a storm to

ensure that the crews and equipment are ready when the

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, including

13 plow trucks, one anti-icing truck, one slide-in tanker, one

grader, and one loader. Additionally, there are three ATVs

(All-Terrain Vehicles), six pickup trucks with plows, and

many hand-held snowblowers and shovels used to clear trails,

sidewalks, and parking lots. In order to assure that all

equipment is operational, mechanics are available at all times

during snowstorms to address 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.

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 includes

removal of snow and ice from sidewalks in the front and side

of a residence (in the case of corner lots), but does not extend

to walkways leading from the sidewalk to the residence nor to

sidewalks or trails abutting the rear of a property. Clearing

snow around mailboxes is also the responsibility of the

occupant.

PG. 12 GV NEWSLETTER | NOVEMBER 2018


GOVERNMENT

MATERIALS

The Village applies 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. 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. Primary trail routes

are those leading to and from schools.

The parking lots at Village Greens

Park, City Hall, Curtis Center for the

Arts, and the Maintenance Facility are

a first priority for snow plowing and

are cleared simultaneously with the

primary trails. The parking lots in

other Village-owned parks are then

cleared. During an average

snowstorm, it takes about eight hours

to clear trails, sidewalks, and parking

STEP CAREFULLY

Thaw/freeze conditions can cause new

ice on trails, sidewalks and parking

lots; always use caution when walking

on these during periods of freezing

weather.

as 4 a.m. Trail crews periodically

check trails for problem areas if the

temperature remains below freezing

for extended periods of time.

LANDSCAPING ON

OBSTRUCTION

COULD CREATE

A SAFETY HAZARD

To ensure the safety of the community

and address mobility and visibility, it is

important to keep streets, sidewalks,

bicycle lanes and other public areas

free of overgrown vegetation. Village

crews are responsible for maintenance

of the Village’s right-of-way, including

roadways, sidewalks, and trails. But

did you know property owners are

responsible for maintaining their trees

and all other vegetation in these areas

next to their property free of

obstructions? Overgrown vegetation is

a safety hazard and limits the use of

sidewalks, trails, and streets. Public

safety is threatened when vegetation

blocks the view of traffic signs, signals,

vehicles, or cyclists.

Trimming vegetation and caring for

your trees are effective ways property

owners can enhance neighborhood

safety. Prune your trees and trim or

remove any vegetation including

branches, shrubs, bushes, or any other

plant material that obstructs or grows

Open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. • www.justbe.shop

The City is delighted to welcome be. to Greenwood Village.

Be. is a “lifestyle boutique” that offers unique gifts and home

décor as well as endless inspiration. There is bound to be

something for everyone.

Following the long-time success of owning and operating

Happy Canyon Flowers, an iconic floral and gift shop in the

Denver area, Kendal Hall and his mother, Kay decided to sell

the store and embark on a new journey. In 2017, Kendal

along with Kay found their next passion in the home décor

and gift industry and as a result be. was born.

The Village was chosen due to its prime location and history

of customer loyalty to Kendal and Kay’s business over the

years. “So many of our customers through the last 35 years

have been local to GV, so once we realized the space in the

Village was available, the decision to begin here was without

difficulty,” stated Kendal.

The concept behind the unique name of be. was derived

from the values Kendal’s mother instilled in him over the

years. As he was contemplating what to name the store

he wrote down the values his mother taught him …

be curious, be loving, be thoughtful, be inspired, be yourself.

Kendal realized all these expressions had one thing in

common … the word be. In fact, these values are written

on the front door to be shared with every customer entering

the store.

Be. strives to be a destination for gifts, home décor, jewelry,

body care products, home fragrance and home décor, as well

this challenge by visiting clients’ homes to provide styling

advice and product recommendations that will assist you in

completing your home.

Kendal states, “What sets us apart is our commitment to

exceptional customer service and it’s one of the reasons we

have so many loyal customers.” If you are looking for a one

stop local shop for your personal and gift needs as well as a

ARTS AND RECREATION

The annual fall festival for the residents of

Greenwood Village took place on

Saturday, October 6, 2018, in the

backyard of City Hall. Over 850 people

walked through the pumpkin patch and

were greeted by larger-than-life emojis.

There were carnival games, face painters, a

giant ball pit, art projects and many other

fun activities that matched the emoji

theme. Everyone enjoyed music from the

DJ, kids competed in fun games to some

of their favorite songs. Across the pond,

kids participated in a pumpkin hunt,

obstacle course and more carnival games.

The kids showed off their amazing

costumes in the photo booth. The day

ended with the kids picking out their

perfect pumpkin to take home.
