SOUTH METRO

FIRE RESCUE

STATION #32 OPENS

On Wednesday, November 28, at 0827,

South Metro Fire Station 32 located at

South Quebec Street and

East Orchard Road, went

back in service. I was able to

witness this informal

ceremony. The South Metro

Pipe and Drum ensemble

added immeasurably to the

festivities. A grand opening

for the public will happen

sometime after the first of

next year.

Ron Rakowsky As plans for the new station

preserve history.

Congratulations to South Metro on a

handsome structure and welcome back to

that occur during the month

of December. On behalf of

Greenwood Village, we wish

you the gift of love, the gift

of peace, and the gift of

happiness this holiday season.

As you start your holiday

shopping and engage in

holiday meals, we ask that

you shop and dine in

Greenwood Village this

holiday season. Here are some

very important reasons why:

• An array of choice for any lifestyle. The Village is home to

an array of service-oriented businesses, specialty shops and

home grown businesses with unique items for all ages.

• Our sales taxes are lower! When you shop in the Village,

you pay less sales tax. Our sales tax rate is actually lower

than most metro area cities.

• Support your local government services. Of the 7.25%

sales tax you pay on purchases in the Village, 3% comes

back to your community which makes up a significant

portion of our general fund revenues. The general fund

provides funding for services such as police protection,

parks and recreation programs, street maintenance, and

road improvements.

• Support local merchants and their employees. Business

owners and their employees pay taxes in the Village. These

businesses donate to local charities and organizations and

provide for our community in many other ways. By

shopping and dining locally, you contribute to the

economic growth of the business, thus contributing to the

economic vitality of our local economy.

You can find more information on our local businesses online

MAY THE BEST CITY WIN!

HELP US WITH SOCKS

FOR THE LESS FORTUNATE

This holiday season, Greenwood Village, in partnership with

Golden Hearts of Greenwood and the Sock It To Em Sock

Campaign, is

collecting new and

used socks for the

homeless. This year,

Greenwood Village

has extended a

friendly challenge

with our

neighboring cities to

compete with us to see which city can collect the most socks.

So far, the cities of Centennial, Englewood, Littleton, and

Lone Tree have agreed to participate.

Making a donation of socks is a wonderful way of giving

back. Please drop off socks at City Hall, 6060 South Quebec

Street, Maintenance Facility, 10001 East Costilla Avenue, or

the Curtis Center for the Arts, 2349 East Orchard Road

through December 31. Let’s make a difference together and

be the best City to collect the most socks!

WIRELESS ISSUES

IN GREENWOOD VILLAGE

We are receiving a growing number of requests from wireless

providers to construct wireless infrastructure in the Village’s

public right-of-way. In Greenwood Village mobile data traffic

has grown significantly. We have heard from many residents

during the Resident Survey of dropped calls due to existing

congested infrastructure the carriers can no longer meet the

current or future demands of our community.

Village staff has retained a consultant to assist us in the

evaluation of all viable options, resulting in the enhancement

of broadband services. We selected Aero Wireless Solutions to

provide professional services to the Village to support our

internal team with telecommunications master planning and

small cell design guidelines. In partnership with the wireless

operators, aesthetic design options of new infrastructure is of

significant importance to ensure they blend into the diverse

neighborhoods of Greenwood Village.

THREE SOUTH METRO

DENVER CITIES PARTNER

ON TRAFFIC CONGESTION

Recently the cities of Centennial, Greenwood Village and

Lone Tree identified a pilot project to take a crossjurisdictional

approach to managing and reducing traffic

congestion. Specifically, the cities will create a connected,

data-driven, multi-jurisdictional traffic management plan for

Yosemite Street between Lincoln Avenue and Belleview

Avenue that promotes efficient and safe traffic flow through

the installation of sensors at traffic signals. This is the first

multi-jurisdictional partnership to enable adaptive signal

technology.

A private sensor vendor, Blyncsy, has secured a grant to

facilitate the installation of their sensors in Centennial and

Lone Tree (Greenwood Village already has similar sensors in

place) to monitor traffic and collect volumes, travel times,

and delay (time spent waiting at a signal). The data collected

will directly serve Centennial’s pilot project with Greenwood

Village and Lone Tree to install adaptive signal technology on

Yosemite Street. This data will fully describe the existing

conditions on the corridor.

After the adaptive technology is deployed and the software

starts making tweaks to the signal timing, the entities can

measure the effectiveness of the pilot project by comparing

before and after conditions. A successful pilot will prove

emerging technology can be applied to traffic signals to

MAYOR RON reports

NEW DENVER WATER RATES

BEGIN IN FEBRUARY

In an effort to fund essential upgrades and new projects,

Denver Water announced new rates which will take effect

February 1, 2019. Suburban customers such as Greenwood

Village residents and businesses will see an additional

monthly increase added to their volumetric charges.

The Denver City Charter requires that suburban customers

pay the full cost of service, plus an additional amount.

This will equate to an annual increase between $23 and $41,

which is between $1.90 and 3.40 a month (based on an

annual use of 102,000 gallons of water). Volume rates for

Denver residents will remain the same but will increase on

suburban bills.

continued from page 4

benefit businesses, commuters, and residents alike, and will

set a precedent for all future efforts our cities undertake.

This project speaks volumes about regional cooperation,

demonstrates a coordinated approach to improving air

quality, and positive impacts on traffic flow.

RAMBLE WITH RON

Due to the fall and winter seasons, Ramble with Ron will be

suspended until the spring. If you have some ideas or

suggestions about living or working in Greenwood Village that

you would like to share with Mayor Ron Rakowsky, send him

an email at rakowsky@greenwoodvillage.com or call the

Mayor’s Office at 303-486-5745.

Denver Water’s rate structure includes a three-tiered charge

for water use (called the volume rate). To keep water

affordable, indoor water use — for bathing, cooking and

flushing toilets — is charged at the lowest rate. Essential

indoor water use is determined by averaging the customer’s

monthly water use on bills dated from January through

March each year. This is called average winter consumption.

Water use above the average winter consumption —

typically for outdoor watering — is charged at a higher

price.

SAY NO TO ‘PUFFERS’

Never leave your vehicle running while

unattended even for a quick stop or to

warm up your car during the winter

season. Not only is it illegal to leave

your car running unattended, it creates

an easy opportunity for thieves to steal

your car.

KEYS

Be smart with your car keys.

Carelessness with vehicle keys is the

cause of more than 50 percent of all

automobile thefts. An unlocked

vehicle is easy to get into and get

away with. It’s even easier when the

keys are left in the vehicle. Don’t

keep the spare set hidden in your

vehicle. Experienced thieves learn

where spare keys are most likely to be

hidden.

PARKING

Most cars are stolen while they are left

unattended. Protect your car by

exercising caution as you park. When

selecting a spot, look for areas that are

well lit, depriving potential thieves of

the cover of darkness. When possible,

park in attended lots, or in areas of

high foot traffic; a car that’s

surrounded by witnesses is less likely

to be stolen. Always double-check to

make sure that all windows have been

closed and all doors properly locked. If

you have a home garage, use it.

AVOID LEAVING ANY

VALUABLES IN SIGHT

Do not leave accessories, valuables or

personal documents in your vehicle.

Insurance cards, registration and title

can provide personal information to

criminals for other uses.

ALARMS AND SECURITY

An audible car alarm is a simple yet

effective way to ward off most crooks.

If you do utilize an alarm system, bear

in mind that the warning decals that

come with it may be just as effective a

deterrent. Most of the criminals that

would flee at the sound of an alarm

will pass your vehicle by completely if

they know about the alarm

beforehand.

For more information, please call the

Greenwood Village Police Department

at 303-773-2525. GV

PHOTO RED LIGHT IN

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

FOUR INTERSECTIONS

ACTIVATED

In an effort to manage traffic safety concerns,

create safer roadways and prevent injuries

Greenwood Village utilizes photo red light

systems. The intersections include: Orchard

Road and Quebec Street; Belleview Avenue and

Quebec Street; Yosemite Street and Arapahoe

Road; and Belleview Avenue and Dayton Street.

All four intersections were selected for

placement of photo red light systems based on

accident history, complaints of aggressive

driving and traffic signal violations. The photo

red light systems were installed to also help improve the

safety environment for pedestrians who utilize the crosswalks

at these intersections.

At all the photo red light intersections the photo red light

system will be activated for any vehicle that travels through a

red light. A photo red light camera will only photograph

those vehicles that enter the intersection after the light

turns red or fail to make a complete stop before turning

right on a red signal. A picture of the license plate and

image of the driver is captured and electronically sent to the

Greenwood Village Police Department for an officer to

review. An officer will validate or reject a violation through

reviewing images captured on video footage. When a

violation is validated a summons and complaint will be

issued by mail to the registered owner of the vehicle.

Photo red light systems are one of the Village’s efforts to

reduce traffic accidents and improve safety. Other methods

include education, engineering, and enforcement such as

increased visibility of police officers to change poor driving

behaviors.

For more information, please call Sergeant Scott Jones, at

303-486-8245 or email sjones@greenwoodvillage.com.

BICYCLE SAFETY

AVOID A COSTLY MISTAKE

Before you take to the road with your bicycle, it’s imperative

to know and practice all the fundamentals of riding a bicycle.

Did you know

bicyclists are subject

to the same rules,

laws and regulations

as motor vehicles?

Ignoring rules of the

road that regulate

passing, riding

abreast, use of hand

signals, stop signs,

and other etiquette

will determine your

fate on the roadway.

If all else fails, always adhere to the lug nut rule: he who has

the most lug nuts wins. In other words, a car will always win

over a bicycle. So ride carefully and cautiously to avoid a

costly mistake and a crash course in bicycling.

• Always ride on the RIGHT. Remember to “go with the

traffic flow.” Never ride against traffic. Cars will not be

expecting to find a biker when they round a corner or go

over a hill.

• Ride single file. When passing other bikers or pedestrians,

let them know your position by shouting something like,

“On your left!”

• When riding two abreast, do not impede the movement

of traffic. If you are on a road with lanes, you must

ride within a single lane.

• Always check behind you when changing lanes.

• Watch out for dangerous things on the roadways or on

trails. Road litter, puddles of water, loose gravel, and

storm gates can cause you to lose control of your bicycle.

• Stop at all stop signs and traffic lights. Be extra careful at

crossroads. Walk your bicycle across busy intersections.

• Always signal before making a left or right turn. To make

a left turn, look behind you, hold your left arm straight

out and proceed carefully. For a right turn, hold your left

arm out and up in an “L” shape.

• Keep control of your bike. Do not swerve or make sudden

turns. Drivers may not be able to react fast enough to

avoid colliding with you.

• Ride at least three feet away from parked cars. Someone

could open his or her door unexpectedly.

• Listen for cars approaching from the side or behind you.

• Do not follow cars too closely (you may be in their blind

spot).

• Know your road signs and obey them. A smart bicyclist

follows the rules of the road.

• Always be prepared to stop. Keep your hands on or close

to the brakes.

• Do not forget to wear your helmet! And do not wear

headphones; you will not be able to hear what is going on

around you.

motorcycle safety, please call the Greenwood Village Police

NYC BAGEL & SANDWICH SHOP

9555 East Arapahoe Road, Suite 16 • 303-955-7458 • www.nycbagelsandwichshop.com

Open Monday-Saturday 5 a.m.-4 p.m., Sunday 6 a.m.-4 p.m.

Which came first… the bagel or the egg? There’s debate on

the answer to that question, but we all know they go great

together. If you’d like to decide for yourself, head on down to

a new restaurant in the Village called the NYC Bagel &

Sandwich Shop. It’s a place where breakfast and lunch are

served all day and the choices are endless. Whether you’re in

the mood for a breakfast wrap, an omelet, French toast, or

oatmeal, your taste buds will undoubtedly be delighted in

what this establishment has to offer!

NYC Bagel opened their doors in the Village in October

2018. Kelly Harmon is the owner of this franchise located in

the heart of Greenwood Village. She is excited and energetic

about the opportunity to open her shop within the Village.

“It is wonderful to be able to bring a franchise that is located

mainly on the East Coast to a quaint town such as

Greenwood Village,” Kelly mentioned.

“I chose to conduct business in the Village because of the

great location nestled along the Arapahoe Road corridor,”

said Kelly. She feels that the proximity to the wonderful

businesses of the Tech Center will ensure good business for

NYC Bagel as employees stop in for lunch during the hustle

and bustle of their busy work schedules. It will also be

convenient for residents to stop by on the weekends as they

are running the many errands that need to get accomplished.

Their menu includes artisan bagels and homemade spreads,

breakfast sandwiches, breakfast platters, deli sandwiches,

soups, salads, fruit, bakery items and beverages. NYC Bagels

states that, “Our bagels are made with powdered barley malt

as opposed to the less expensive liquid malt or no malt at all.
