MAYOR RON reports

AMENDMENTS TO

COMPREHENSIVE

PLAN ADOPTED

In January, the City

Council unanimously

approved amendments

to the Village’s

Comprehensive Plan as

recommended by the

Planning & Zoning

Commission. The

Comprehensive Plan is

a document that guides

land use decisions in the Village. It sets forth

Ron Rakowsky

rrakowsky@

greenwoodvillage.com

303-486-5741

goals, objectives, and policies regarding land use

development, environment, transportation, and

economic development.

The amendments to the Comprehensive Plan

were a result of the work of a City Council

committee appointed by me to develop revisions to the plan,

consistent with the results of the 2017 Special Election

regarding Referendum 1. Most of the committee’s efforts

were focused on redefining Village goals related to

development along the I-25 Corridor and East Arapahoe

Road.

The committee was comprised of Councilmembers Jerry

Presley, District 1; Dave Kerber, District 2; George Lantz,

District 3; and Tom Dougherty, District 4. You can view the

final version of the Comprehensive Plan online at

greenwoodvillage.com.

GV WINS SOCK COMPETITION

In the spirit of competition, Greenwood Village is the best

City! We were the top finisher in the Sock It To Em Sock

Campaign to collect the most socks for the homeless this past

holiday season. We competed against our neighboring cities

of Englewood, Centennial, Littleton, and Lone Tree who all

deserve recognition for their efforts to this worthy cause. As

part of our first-place honor, we were presented with the

traveling trophy that will remain at City Hall, pending the

outcome of next year’s competition.

I want to extend my sincere appreciation to anyone who

contributed to the 1,075 pairs of socks we collected in

Mayor Ron Rakowsky with Susan Elizabeth Lee, Sock It To Em

Sock Campaign.

RECOGNIZING VILLAGE HEROES

One of the things I love about Greenwood Village is the

people of this Village community who I meet every day.

Whether it’s a resident, a business owner, or an employee,

I am truly inspired by the great deeds and remarkable

contributions that people make in our very own city.

To ensure these people’s stories do not go unnoticed, we have

launched Village Heroes to recognize citizens who are making

a positive impact in our community.

This month, we honor Village residents Bob and Misi Ballard

as heroes in Greenwood Village. Their nomination stated, in

part, “Bob and Misi have served a key role in bringing

neighbors together and building a sense of community in

Orchard Hills of Greenwood Village. They organize an

annual Bird Walk (a gathering to learn about birds and

natural spaces in our area). They built the first Little Free

Library in Greenwood Village which is a little beacon of joy

spaces we enjoy.”

A big thank you to Bob and Misi for your contributions to

the Greenwood Village community.

If you would like to nominate a Village Hero, please send

your nomination to mgallegos@greenwoodvillage.com.

For questions, please call 303-486-5749.

CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY

IN GREENWOOD VILLAGE

It’s that special month for many to give and receive beautiful

bouquets, stunning pieces of jewelry, and enjoy a candlelight

dinner for two. If you are planning to celebrate Valentine’s

Day to make a great impression on that special person, please

keep your celebrations in Greenwood Village. Whether it is

enjoying a movie or a show at The Landmark Theatre or

Comedy Works, treating your special person to a great meal at

any of our fine dining establishments, selecting a special gift

from one of our specialty boutiques, or ordering a bouquet of

flowers from one of our florists. We have many great choices

for services and products, including some amazing and tasty

eateries right here in our Village for breakfast, lunch or

dinner. So why go anywhere else to find love? GV

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

CODES

BUILDING PERMITS

The Village is dedicated to protecting

the health, safety and well-being of the

community by ensuring that all

construction is completed consistently

and within safety standards. A

building permit is generally required

for:

• Any new building, addition,

alteration, or repair, or

• Exterior site improvements

If your construction project does not

comply with building codes, the value

of your investment could be reduced.

If you decide to sell a home that has

modifications without a permit, you

may be required to tear down the

addition or conduct costly repairs.

Your first step is to hire a licensed

contractor. The property owner is

responsible for verifying building

permits have been secured prior to the

commencement of any work.

Projects That Require

A Building Permit Include:

Indoor

Additions

Air Conditioner

Basement Finish

Boilers

Chair Lifts

Demolition

Elevators

application to the Village.

How To Apply For A Permit

Please submit your building permit

application to the Community

Development Department in person,

online at greenwoodvillage.com,

comdev@greenwoodvillage.com. Plans

need to accurately and clearly reflect

all work proposed. Any exterior work

must include a site plan for the

property.

Issuance Of Permit

The permit is required to be posted

within view of the public, until all

inspections have been completed and a

certificate has been issued.

Asbestos

If your house was built before October

12, 1988, an asbestos report for the

accordance with Colorado Department

of Public Health and Environment.

Helpful Tips For Hiring Contractors

• Check references to make sure the

contractor is qualified for the

project.

• Check with Community

Development to verify your

contractor is licensed.

• Verify that the contractor has

workers’ compensation, liability

insurance, and the building permit

before any work begins on your

project.

• Any agreement you make with your

contractor should be in writing.

Requiring a written contract will

ensure that your project will be

completed with the desired results,

within the time frame specified,

and within the price range you

agreed to pay.

Davis Park.

The Huntington-Caley Master Plan was adopted by the City

in 2014. Phase I and Phase II of the planned improvements

were completed in 2015 and 2018, respectively. These

improvements included a pedestrian undercrossing of Caley

Avenue, extension of the regional trail, stream restoration,

braided gardens, and other trail improvements. The Tommy

Davis Park Master Plan was adopted in 2007. Tommy Davis

Park Phase I was completed in 2009 and included pond,

trail, and channel improvements to the north end of the

park.

If you are unable to attend this public meeting and would

like to provide input on the preliminary design, please visit

Village Voices at greenwoodvillagevoices.com, our new online

CONSTRUCTION

PHASE II OF NEW

MAINTENANCE

FACILITY

UNDERWAY

In February, the Village began

construction on Phase II of the

Maintenance Facility to address

inadequate space needs for operations

of the Parks, Trails, and Recreation

and Public Works departments. The

construction project includes a new

administrative/office building to

replace the existing administrative/

office building at 10001 East Costilla

Avenue. The improvements will create

a more productive and efficient work

environment, reflect the proper image

of the Village, and ensure staff

Greenwood Village Maintenance Facility Southwest Perspective

continues to deliver high quality

services to residents and businesses in

the future.

The Greenwood Village Maintenance

Facility was built in 1994 to house

park and street maintenance services

which included 37 regular employees,

19 seasonal workers, and maintenance

of 150 vehicles for all Village

operations. Due to the increase in the

levels of service and investment in

infrastructure by the Village starting in

1994 and continuing into the late

1990s, the maintenance facility

became home-base for all Parks

Maintenance services and Public

Works including Engineering that was

relocated from City Hall. These

operations are responsible for 224 lane

miles of roadways, 193 acres of

developed parks, 43 miles of trails, 1.5

acres of floral beds, 49 miles of storm

sewer, 7 miles of master drainage ways,

254 acres of open space, and 53 acres

of streetscape and medians. Current

service levels require work by nearly 87

employees, 12 seasonal workers, and

maintenance of 251 vehicles for

Village operations.

Maintenance Facility improvements

were planned by the Village in two

phases. In 2013, Phase I of the

Maintenance Facility modifications

mainly occurred to the Emporia Street

parcel. Major areas that were addressed

included a new fleet maintenance

building; construction of a new

material storage building for snow and

ice control; expanded material bins to

allow for bulk purchasing of materials

such as mulch; and canopies for

Village equipment. In addition, a new

Police Department state-of-the-art

crime lab was renovated and

modernized at the City Hall

site as part of the project to

improve space needs for police

officers and staff and meet the

21st century demands of

policing.

Construction of Phase II of the

Maintenance Facility

improvements is anticipated to

be completed in nine months.

The project is fully funded

within the Village’s Capital

Improvement Program (CIP).

For more information, please

call Jeremy Hanak, Director

of Public Works at

303-708-6175 or email

jhanak@greenwoodvillage.com.

During construction, staff will

be relocated to temporary

housing/trailers west of the

existing Maintenance Facility

to ensure service delivery and

operations. GV

COYOTE ACTIVITY

INCREASING IN THE SPRING

COYOTES EXPECTED TO BEHAVE MORE

AGGRESSIVE TO PROTECT NEW PUPS

Wildlife experts indicate that most coyote and human

conflicts have been a direct result of human behavior such as

feeding coyotes, walking a dog without a leash, or leaving

food or water outside for your pets. Although these behaviors

may seem innocent, they are actually

harmful to you and your family, and

to the health and safety of the

coyote population.

Spring is denning season for coyotes

with new pups in the dens, and

coyotes are expected to behave more

aggressively. Citizens are encouraged

to take precautions when enjoying

the outdoors to prevent a negative

encounter with these wildlife

animals.

DO NOT FEED COYOTES

The feeding of coyotes by humans is one of the most harmful

actions man can inflict on coyotes and wild animal

populations. It is essential to minimize human/coyote

conflict as well the health and well-being of coyotes to not be

fed by humans. Coyotes used to being fed become habituated

to human-provided food and alter their foraging and hunting

behavior. The feeding of coyotes encourages them to remain

in residential areas, increasing their encounters with pets and

humans.

IF A COYOTE APPROACHES YOU

Be as Big, Mean, and Loud as possible

• Wave your arms and throw objects at the coyote

• Shout in a deep, loud and authoritative voice

• DO NOT RUN or turn your back on the coyote

• Face the coyote and back away slowly

• If attacked, fight back with your fists and feet

What You Can Do:

• Never feed coyotes! Intentionally feeding coyotes is

illegal and these laws will be enforced.

• Keep pet food and water inside.

• Discourage others from feeding coyotes.

• Do not touch young coyotes. A coyote that appears

orphaned most often is not; the mother is usually nearby.

• Teach children not to feed, play with, or pet coyotes.

• Do not give coyotes the opportunity to get into your

garbage; keep garbage in sealed containers with secure lids.

• Remove attractants from your yard such as pet food, water

sources, bird feeders and fallen fruit.

• Fully enclose gardens and compost piles.

KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH

As coyotes adapt to their surroundings, they have discovered

that humans provide a sufficient source for food, water, and

shelter. Coyotes will feed on whatever is available to them,

including your household pets. While some attacks on pets

have been known to occur in backyards, many coyote-pet

interactions occur when a household pet is allowed to roam

free.

What You Can Do:

• Keep pets on a six-foot leash when walking at all times.

It is illegal to have your dog off a leash and the law will

be enforced.

• Never allow your pets to “play” with a coyote.

• Pick up small pets if confronted by a coyote.

GENERAL INTEREST

• Always supervise your pet when outside,

especially at dawn and dusk.

• Never leave cats or dogs outside after dark.

• If you must leave your pet outside, secure it in a

fully enclosed kennel.

• Keep your pets up-to-date on vaccinations.

REPORT COYOTE

BEHAVIOR AND ACTIVITY

Please call the Greenwood Village Police

Department at 303-773-2525 with information on

coyote sightings. The Police Department is actively

keeping a record of coyote activity in the Village

which will assist the Village in tracking the coyote

population. GV

DID YOU KNOW?

• The average weight of coyotes in the Denver-Metro area is 29

pounds (about the same size as a cocker spaniel).

• October through February are the months of the year where we

see the most conflict between urban coyotes and humans/pets.

• The majority of people are not actively hazing coyotes when they

come across them. One of the simplest and easiest ways to haze a

coyote is to run directly at the coyote, hands in the air and

screaming like a crazed person. Coyotes that have been effectively

hazed are much more likely to develop fear of humans and move

along to a new habitat area.

These facts were taken from a recent biological study of urban coyotes in the Denver-

Metro area.
