UPDATE ON

TRANSPORTATION PLAN

In 2017, staff, in collaboration with a Citizens Working

Group (CWG), comprised of residents appointed by the

City Council, initiated work to develop a

Transportation Master Plan for Greenwood

Village. The Transportation Master Plan will

provide a roadmap for a transportation system to

meet the needs of the community.

Over the course of two years, community input

has been a driving force in this process with

resident, business, and visitor input and ideas

about the Plan’s development. Whether you live,

work, or travel in Greenwood Village,

transportation plays a vital role in your life. Our

efforts during the planning process to bring

together community input and technical criteria

to develop a plan was focused on collaboration,

transparency, and inclusivity.

At a previous City Council meeting, staff presented

recommendations for projects identified by the CWG to be

considered in the Village’s Transportation Master Plan.

After discussion, I directed staff to reconvene the CWG to

prioritize the list of projects they created. I would envision

this prioritized list would be presented to the City Council

for future review and consideration.

Watch for more information and updates on the

Transportation Master Plan process in the months ahead.

LIGHTNING SYSTEM

AT VILLAGE GREENS

PARK UPGRADED

INCREASED COVERAGE

IMPLEMENTED

During the summer storm season,

Village park users and visitors may be

exposed to potential dangers of a

lightning storm while outside. In an

effort to provide a safer environment

for users of Village Greens Park, Curtis

Park, Westlands Park, Silo Park, and

Tommy Davis Park, the Village has

installed lightning prediction and

warning systems to alert park users of

the potential for lightning before it

strikes.

The lightning prediction system at

Village Greens Park was recently

updated. The upgrades include

installation of a new remote site that

allows for increased coverage to

include the mountain bike and disc

golf courses, and the path system

surrounding both courses. In addition,

the technology has been upgraded to

allow anyone to see the status of the

Village Greens park site, and view

radar imagery of the area by

accessing the website address:

greenwoodvillage.thormobile3.net.

The lightning systems in designated

Village parks are prediction systems

not detection system. These systems

measure the shift of the positive and

negative ions in the atmosphere and in

the ground that can create an energy

flow that may result in a lightning

strike once a conductive cloud to

ground path is available. The lightning

prediction and warning system senses

and evaluates these shifts and changes

in the electrostatic field that precede

the occurrence of an actual lightning

strike and activates an audible, as well

as, visual warning alerting of the

dangerous conditions. The systems are

set to monitor a 2.5 mile radius from

its location.

When the conditions are ripe for

lightning at the parks or within the

2.5 mile radius, a continuous audible

horn is activated for a period of 15

seconds, alerting users of the potential

for lightning and activating yellow

strobes on the roofs of the structures

located within the parks. These strobes

will stay activated throughout the

period of potential lightning activity

and will shut off only after an all clear

signal consisting of three five second

audible horn blasts. The systems are

operational between the hours of

7 a.m. and 9 p.m., seven days a week,

through the spring and summer

months.

TRAIL ETIQUETTE

FOR PEDESTRIANS,

EQUESTRIANS

AND BICYCLISTS

Just like dining in a fine restaurant,

there is proper etiquette when using

area trails. Though the look of

multiuse trail signs may differ, the

right-of-way order is universal:

bicyclists yield to everyone; pedestrians

yield to equestrians; equestrians always

have the right-of-way and do not yield

to bicyclists or pedestrians.

Pedestrians — of course it’s more fun

to walk side-by-side to talk with your

walking buddies than to walk single

file but please be aware that taking up

the whole trail makes it difficult for

bicyclists and equestrians to pass safely.

Stay to the right and close to your

walking partner.

Equestrians — It is safest to ride

single file but as with pedestrians,

many prefer to ride side-by-side to talk

with friends. Be aware that two horses

riding take up a lot of trail space,

making it difficult for others to pass

safely. Trails in the Village are

multiuse, so you will encounter

bicyclists and pedestrians; it is the

rider’s responsibility to ensure that

their horse in under control. Also keep

in mind that many people are not

familiar with horses and do not

understand that objects such as bikes

and runners coming up behind them

can scare your horse. Be courteous and

notify pedestrians when passing.

Horses should be held to a walk or trot

on the High Line Canal Trail for the

safety of all users.

Bicyclists — bicyclists yield to both

pedestrians and equestrians. Be

courteous to other users and keep right

when possible. Verbally alert others

when you are approaching to pass; call

out “on your left” or “on your right” as

pedestrians and equestrians may not

hear you approaching. The speed limit

on Village trails is a maximum of 15

MPH, depending on conditions.

Some Notes About Horses — Have

you ever noticed a horse jump? Here’s

why: horses are easily scared. In nature,

horses are prey. Horses’ eyes are

situated on the sides of their heads

which causes objects to appear to jump

from one side of their vision to the

other. This can trigger the horse’s

instinct to flee. Pedestrians be aware

that if you get too close to a horse

(closer than the horse’s leg length) you

are in danger of getting kicked,

especially if you surprise the horse.

When approaching or passing a horse,

keep your dog on a tight leash and on

the side away from the horse. Dogs

unfamiliar with horses may be fearful

or try to jump at the horse. Don’t

forget to use your voice by stating “on

your left” instead of using your bell,

which may scare a horse.

For more information, please call

Parks, Trails, and Recreation at

303-486-5773. To report unsafe user

behavior on Village trails, please call

CareNow Urgent Care opened its doors in the Village in

September 2016 and was the first of seven clinics in the

Denver Metro area. According to the clinic’s Medical

THE VILLAGE

READ FOR 2019

Celebrating its third year, the

Greenwood Village Cultural Arts

Program has once again partnered

with Arapahoe Libraries to

present the “Village Read.” The

idea encourages adults of all

ages to read one book and

participate in thoughtprovoking

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 Rush by Colorado

author Jayme Mansfield. In Rush, Mary, a single mom, tries

to strike her claim in the

Oklahoma Land Rush of

1893. In competition with

desperate homesteaders,

ruthless land seekers and a

sheriff determined to see her

fail, Mary thrusts her flag in

the dirt to claim 160 acres

of her own. But with that

claim, she risks more than

she ever could imagine.

Mary is faced with a past

riddled with loss, hardship

and reminders that a woman

isn’t capable of surviving on

her own. Will Mary’s

stubborn and independent

Jayme Mansfield

spirit keep her mired in the past? Or will she find forgiveness

and love in the wild plains of the Midwest?

ARTS SCHOLARSHIPS

The Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council has chosen the recipients of this year’s college scholarships. Each student

will receive $3,000 toward their education. In addition, each student’s high school receives $500 to go toward their art program.

This year’s recipients are Julia Dizghinjili from Cherry Creek High School and Zoé Fonck from Denver School of the Arts.

Julia Dizghinjili was born in Saint Petersburg,

Russia. She showed interest in visual arts at around

10 years

old, but

five years

later, only

after

taking an

art class in

her high

school,

did she

start to

study and

make art systematically. Julia’s work was shown in

the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she

participated in a Summer Pre-College Program; in

Denver Museum of Contemporary Art; and in

multiple exhibitions in Cherry Creek High School.

Julia graduated from CCHS in May 2019, and is

planning to go to college to study Art and Software

Engineering.

Zoé Fonck recently graduated from Denver School of the Arts as a

senior theatre major. Some of her favorite roles she’s played while at

DSA include Henrietta

Leavitt in Silent Sky, Tilly in

Melancholy Play and Corryn

in Gidion’s Knot. She has

spent the last four years

receiving supplemental

training from the DCPA,

expanding her knowledge of

both classical and

contemporary theatre. She

has also spent the last few

summers attending national

thespian conferences, working at the DCPA’s children’s summer camps,

and attending Emerson’s Pre-College Acting Program. Besides theatre,

she has a love of academics, taking a variety of AP, dual enrollment, and

honors classes during her time in high school, all the while being in the

National Honor Society. She also holds interest in directing, literature,

and art history. She is thrilled to begin her college education at

Southern Methodist University where she will be getting her BFA in

Theatre through the Meadows School of the Arts.
