MAYOR RON reports

GV AND CHERRY CREEK

SCHOOL DISTRICT

PARTNER FOR SAFETY

Our children’s safety has always been our

number one priority and will continue to be the

number one priority of the Greenwood Village

Police Department as we begin the 2019-2020

school year. In an effort to enhance the safety of

nearly 8,725 students, faculty, and staff of the

Cherry Creek School District (CCSD)

campuses in Greenwood Village, including

Cherry Creek High School, West and Campus

Middle Schools, and Belleview and Greenwood

Elementary schools, the City Council

Ron Rakowsky

rrakowsky@

greenwoodvillage.com

303-486-5741

unanimously approved an Intergovernmental

Agreement (IGA) with CCSD.

The purpose of the IGA is to outline the Police

Department and CCSD’s cost-sharing

responsibilities related to the school resource officer (SRO)

program. One major change to the SRO program this year is

six school resource officers designated to the program, versus

five officers assigned last year. Five school resource officers

will be assigned to the Cherry Creek School campus,

including Belleview Elementary and Campus Middle School;

and one officer will be assigned to West Middle School and

Greenwood Elementary.

Greenwood Village is pleased with the strong and positive

working relationship with the Cherry Creek School District

and applaud Superintendent Scott Siegfried for his ongoing

support of the SRO Program to ensure our school campuses

remain safe.

Provided below is contact information for the 2019-2020

Greenwood Village Police School Resource Officers. In an

emergency or for immediate assistance in an urgent situation,

please call 9-1-1 FIRST. An available officer will be

immediately dispatched to the situation.

In addition, we encourage you to reach out to your school

resource officers who are always available to offer assistance to

parents and students. Get involved in what your children are

doing and how they are feeling about life, school, friends, etc.

Parents who notice red flags early have the best chance of

getting their children to change or get help before the

situation worsens. Declining grades, disrespectful friends, loss

of activity or interest, and use of drugs are some warnings

signs to watch for that your child may require some

immediate assistance and our school resource officers care

enough to help.

DENVER WATER’S PROPOSED

LEAD REDUCTION PROGRAM

Virtually all water used by Greenwood Village comes from

Denver Water. The water Denver Water delivers to homes

and businesses is lead-free, but lead can get into the water as

it moves through a home’s lead-containing plumbing and

service lines. In Denver Water’s experience, homes and

buildings most likely to have lead service lines are those built

before 1951.

That is why Denver Water is working with the Colorado

Department of Public Health and Environment and the

Environmental Protection Agency to further reduce potential

lead exposure for customers with lead service lines and

plumbing.

The EPA is considering a variance request for this program

from the previously designated corrosion control method of

adding orthophosphate to the water supply.

Lead service lines, like the one pictured here, were initially

installed by builders most likely before 1951 and are the

responsibility of the property owner.

The proposal protects future generations and aims to reduce continued on page 4

SEPTEMBER 2019 | GV NEWSLETTER PG. 3


GOVERNMENT

Mayor Ron reports

continued from page 3

the risk of lead getting into Denver Water’s lead-free drinking

water by:

• Removing all lead service lines in Denver Water’s service

area at no charge to the customer over the next 15 years.

• Providing at-home water filters for all customers in the

service area with a suspected lead service line, also at no

charge.

• Increasing the pH level of the drinking water, which

reduces the corrosivity of the water.

To stay up-to-date about the proposed Lead Reduction

Program and to learn more, visit denverwater.org/Lead.

All Denver Water customers can get a free, at-home water

quality test for lead by calling 303-893-2444.

CELEBRATE THE BEGINNING

OF A NEW SEASON

As summer comes to an end, one of the great things about

our beautiful State of Colorado is about to happen. We are

fortunate to experience four seasons during the year. Fall is a

favorite season of many people for a variety of reasons. All

the leaves from the trees and plants change into multicolored

works of art. This season allows photographers to

capture beautiful scenic photos by spending time outdoors.

With cooler temperatures rolling in, it’s time to break out the

jackets, coats, boots and scarves and hats in preparation for

the change in season. The Fall season is also full of family

Village events. Be sure to check out the Arts and Recreation

pages of this Newsletter for all the details. GV

BALLOT QUESTION APPROVED

FOR NOVEMBER 5, 2019

MUNICIPAL ELECTION

VOTERS WILL DETERMINE WHETHER TO

“OPT OUT” AND ALLOW THE VILLAGE TO

PROVIDE (DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY)

ADVANCED TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES

At the August 5 City Council meeting, the City Council

unanimously approved a resolution submitting to a vote of

the registered electors of the Village an “opt out” question on

the ballot of whether the City of Greenwood Village should

be allowed to provide advanced telecommunication services,

directly or indirectly, currently prohibited by Title 29, Article

27 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, also known as Colorado

Senate Bill 05-152 (SB 05-152).

WHAT IS COLORADO

SENATE BILL 05-152?

Colorado Senate Bill 05-152 is a measure passed

by the Colorado Legislature in 2005. The current

law limits the ability of Colorado cities and

counties to provide telecommunication services

such as broadband internet service, as well as the

ability to partner with private businesses and

leverage government infrastructure to provide

telecommunication service. SB 05-152 requires

local governments to secure voter approval before

entering into broadband partnerships or business.

To date, over 100 local governments in Colorado

have overridden SB 05-152 provisions.

VILLAGE BALLOT QUESTION:

Shall the City of Greenwood Village, without

increasing taxes, be authorized to provide all

services and facilities restricted since 2005 by

Title 29, Article 27 of the Colorado Revised

Statutes, described as “advanced services,”

“telecommunication services,” and “cable

television” services,” including improved high

speed bandwidth services based on new

technologies, either directly or indirectly with

public or private sector partners, including

utilizing existing or new community owned

infrastructure, to potential subscribers that may

include telecommunications service providers,

residential, or commercial users within the

boundaries of Greenwood Village?

Yes

No

WHAT WOULD PASSAGE

ALLOW THE VILLAGE TO DO

THAT IT CANNOT DO NOW?

• Allow Greenwood Village to explore options

SEPTEMBER 2019 | GV

GOVERNMENT

to improve broadband services;

• Allow Greenwood Village to establish public/private

partnerships to enhance broadband connectivity;

• Allows Greenwood Village to lease, sell capacity in, or

grant rights to a provider to use local government facilities

for the delivery of broadband services:

• Allows Greenwood Village the ability, if it chooses, to

build its own broadband network and services.

WHAT IF IT DOESN’T PASS?

If the ballot question doesn’t pass, Greenwood Village will

not partner with any telecommunication services providers

and cannot provide or enhance telecommunication services

directly or indirectly.

Municipal Election, please call the City Clerk’s Office at

SMALL CELL WIRELESS

FACILITIES COMING TO

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

WHAT RESIDENTS NEED TO KNOW

Greenwood Village has received multiple requests from

wireless carrier companies to install “Small Cell” technology

in the public right-of-way. The construction and installation

of wireless facilities has initiated a variety of questions raised

by citizens. Provided below are some frequently asked

questions to help you gain a better understanding of this

technology and the Village’s ability to regulate its placement

in the community.

WHAT ARE SMALL CELL WIRELESS FACILITIES?

Small Cell facilities are low-powered antennas that provide

cellular and data coverage to smaller geographic areas,

supplementing the larger cellular network and improving

service for wireless customers. Small Cell equipment typically

will initially meet current 4G (LTE) voice and data demands

but is rapidly evolving to provide future 5G higher speed

data services as technology changes.

WHY DON’T EXISTING FACILITIES

PROVIDE ADEQUATE COVERAGE?

Wireless carrier companies use Macrocell facilities located on

both public and private property to offer wireless phone

service. Those antennas serve relatively large areas, or “cells”

up to several miles away. Carriers have stated that existing cell

sites are becoming congested and that installing more large

facilities covering large areas will not keep up with the

projected growing demand for high speed wireless data.

WHERE WILL SMALL CELL

WIRELESS FACILITIES BE LOCATED?

Generally, wireless companies install Small Cell wireless

facilities in the public right-of way on existing structures such

as utility and light poles or install new free-standing poles.

Typically, it is not feasible for carriers to request a location on

private property as this requires agreements with individual

property owners and consistency with the intent and

character of the established zoning for the neighborhood.

HOW DOES THE COMMUNITY BENEFIT

FROM SMALL CELL TECHNOLOGY?

Community members may experience more reliable and

faster service with their service provider. Network

enhancements are necessary to support existing and future

demands on existing cellular systems.

CAN GREENWOOD VILLAGE JUST SAY NO

TO THE INSTALLATION OF SMALL CELL

FACILITIES IN THE PUBLIC RIGHT-OF-WAY?

Federal and State law prohibits municipalities from denying

or preventing the installation of Small Cell infrastructure in

the public right-of-way and requires treatment of the

equipment in the same manner as other permitted

infrastructure/utilities. However, Greenwood Village

maintains authority to regulate Small Cell equipment based

on design and appearance standards.

DOES THIS MEAN A SMALL CELL FACILITY

CAN BE PLACED ADJACENT TO MY PROPERTY?

Yes, if there is adequate right-of-way and the facility meets

the Village Code and Small Cell Design Guidelines. The

Village expects that most interest at this time will be focused

in the commercial areas to address the demands on the

networks; however, facilities may be placed in residential

areas to improve service coverage and capacity, as deemed

necessary by the wireless carrier companies. To review the

Village Small Cell Infrastructure Design Guidelines, please

visit greenwoodvillage.com.

DOES SMALL CELL INFRASTRUCTURE

POSE HEALTH AND SAFETY

CONCERNS TO THE PUBLIC?

According to the Federal Communications Commission,

there is no conclusive evidence that cell phone facilities pose

any danger to public health. Federal law prohibits

communities including Greenwood Village from denying

Small Cell infrastructure based on health concerns. To learn

more about public health in relation to radio frequency (RF)

radiation, please visit the Federal Communications

Commission at fcc.gov or the Occupational Safety and

Health Administration at osha.gov.

PG. 10 GV NEWSLETTER | SEPTEMBER 2019


GOVERNMENT

WHAT WILL THE NEW SMALL CELL

INFRASTRUCTURE LOOK LIKE IN THE VILLAGE?

The Village

developed Small

Cell Design

Guidelines to

regulate the

appearance of the

facilities. This

includes

standardized pole

design elements,

colors, and

heights to blend

with the existing

infrastructure in

the public-rightof

way and focus

on replacing

existing vertical

infrastructure

(e.g. street lights)

with a pole that

functions as a

street light and

Small Cell

facility; and

limiting pole heights to match existing street lighting and

other poles in the public right-of-way. Height limitations of

new Small Cell facilities is 30 feet in residential areas and 40

feet in commercial areas. In addition, enclosed equipment

designs will conceal equipment and minimize visual impacts.

The guidelines also require co-locating equipment and

carriers onto existing infrastructure when feasible to

minimize congestion of the public right-of-way. To review

the Village Small Cell Infrastructure Design Guidelines,

please visit greenwoodvillage.com.

WHAT IS THE VILLAGE’S ROLE AND PROCESS

WITH SMALL CELL APPLICATIONS?

The Village’s Community Development Department will

review all new wireless communications applications in the

public right-of-way in conjunction with the Greenwood

Village Small Cell Design Guidelines, and Municipal Code,

developed in accordance with Federal and State law. Federal

law mandates the Village grant permits within established

“shot clock” timeframes, which vary depending on the type

of facility.

HOW WILL I BE NOTIFIED OF ANY SMALL CELL

APPLICATIONS IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD?

All new applications for Small Cell wireless facilities will be

reviewed and approved administratively, if the applications

meet the Village Code and Small Cell Design Guidelines.

However, when a new facility is proposed adjacent to a

residential area, a courtesy notification will be provided to

the adjacent properties with resources for obtaining

additional information on the application. The notice may

come from the Village or from the wireless carrier company

directly, with contact information for questions on the

specific facility proposed.

HOW CAN I ACCESS INFORMATION

ON CURRENT SMALL CELL

APPLICATIONS IN THE VILLAGE?

The Community Development Department will be

launching a new Small Cell Facility Map, projected for

October 2019, that will be accessible online at

greenwoodvillage.com. The Small Cell Facility Map will

include both proposed and approved Small Cell applications

for facilities in the public right-of-way and will be

accompanied by additional information and resources.

You can also call contact the Community Development

Department at 303-486-5783 or

ORDINANCE UPDATE

PROHIBITING THE SALE OF KRATOM

In an effort to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the community, the Village

Municipal Code was amended to ban the sale of kratom in Greenwood Village. Kratom, a

plant with psychoactive properties indigenous to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Papua

New Guinea, is neither recognized as a food ingredient nor drug under either U.S. Food

and Drug Administration (FDA) or U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) policies.

The new ordinance is a result of an initiative by the Tri-County Health Department to ban

the sale of kratom until regulations are adopted by the federal or state government to

protect consumers.

INDIA’S CASTLE

9555 East Arapahoe Road, Unit #19 • www.indiascastle.com • 303-782-9700

Lunch Buffet: Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. • Dinner: Sunday-Wednesday 5-9:30 p.m.; Thursday-Saturday 5-10 p.m.

Are you stuck in a routine when it comes to dining out? If

you are looking to add somewhere more exotic to your

dining experience, look no further than India’s Castle.

Located off Arapahoe Road near Interstate 25, this restaurant

is centrally located near the many businesses within the

Village. Whether you want to stop in for their lunch buffet

or select an entrée from their dinner menu, India’s Castle will

delight the taste buds of the most amateur diner to the

connoisseur!

India’s Castle originally opened their doors in the Village in

April 2005. Vipan and Anju Seth have owned and operated

this Village business since September 2018. One of the prior

owners, Jagdish Singh, was persuaded to stay onboard as a

master chef for the new restaurant. “Jagdish is a magician

when it comes to the culinary art of Indian cuisine,” states

Vipan of the chef who graciously continued his legacy at this

fine establishment.

Their menu is inspired by the vibrant streets of North India

and includes chicken, lamb or seafood entrees, vegetarian or

vegan dishes, and Tandoori specialties. Tandoor is a

cylindrical clay oven that runs on charcoal. Its slow and

steady heat retains flavor and bakes the meat to perfection

giving it a unique taste and a distinctive earthy flavor. The

restaurant also specializes in Indian appetizers, soups, salads,

biryani rice dishes, sides, desserts, specialty drinks and

beverages and Indian beers.

Looking at their vast and expansive menu might make it

difficult for the indecisive diner to select only one special

entrée. If you are open to various food dishes and enjoy

sampling many different items at one meal, the lunch buffet

would be perfect for you. It includes specialties from every

section of their menu and is sure to satisfy the heartiest of

appetites. On the other hand, you may choose to dine with

them during the dinner hours and be attentively waited upon

by their fine staff members. Either way, you will be satisfied

with your exquisite dining experience.

Vipan enjoys doing business along the Arapahoe Road

corridor because of the great central location to both

businesses and residents alike. He feels that India’s Castle’s

proximity to the various Greenwood Village businesses

provides an excellent opportunity for employees to enjoy a

nice and relaxing lunch away from their hectic work

schedule. It’s also convenient for the Village residents to head

there for lunch while performing their weekend chores or

treat themselves to a lovely dining experience for any special

occasion.

Since Vipan and Anju are new to the Greenwood Village

area, they are interested in becoming more involved with

their surrounding neighbors and local community. For more

information about India’s Castle, please visit
