THE MAYOR’S message

George Lantz

glantz@greenwoodvillage.com

303-486-5741

I am honored to be your new Mayor.

While I come into the office knowing

it is a large and demanding job, I am

reassured to have the privilege of

working with eight very talented

City Councilmembers. These

dedicated individuals have collectively

served 39-years on the Greenwood

Village City Council and this does

not include their many years on

various Village boards and

commissions. With their depth of

experience, diverse talents, and

creative ideas, we will work together

to make wise decisions for our

Village. I am also fortunate to work

along side a talented and tenured

Village staff. These team members

take great pride in their work. We are

all beneficiaries of their tireless efforts.

neighboring communities to minimize their impact on

our community. We will work to enhance our partnership

with the business community to promote their success;

creating an environment where new and existing businesses

can thrive. Our goal will be to enhance the economic

viability of our community while maintaining the quality

of life we all enjoy.

As your elected representatives, we appreciate your trust and

support. We are here to represent you and proud to do so.

I wish you the best this holiday season and for a happy and

healthy 2020. GV

I will utilize my business and Village background to help

guide and enhance the Council’s efforts. My Village

background includes 12 years on the Board of Adjustments

and Appeals, eight years on the Planning and Zoning

Commission, and four years on City Council including two

as Mayor Pro Tem. These experiences have given me the

opportunity to see and work on many issues; helping me to

better understand the ramifications of making sound

decisions to insure long-term results.

I would like to thank the two out-going members of City

Council for all of their contributions. First, let me thank Ron

Rakowsky for his dedicated service on City Council and as

our Mayor for the last eight years and 10 months. Ron leaves

behind some big shoes to fill. Secondly, I would like to

recognize Steve Moran for his many years of Village service

and the last four years on the City Council. Steve offered a

calm intellectual approach to Council issues. His knowledge

and insight will be missed.

As we look to the new year, the City Council, Village staff,

and I will continue to protect our collective values. Our goals

will remain constant; we are committed to keeping our

neighborhoods and Village safe and financially sound,

preserving open space, and providing recreational

opportunities for youth, families, and seniors. We will

tackle difficult issues like traffic congestion and work with

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

MAKING A difference

VILLAGE HEROES

THE BERLINERS

Martin and Gail Berliner have been

residents of Orchard Hills for 42 years in

a house at the end of the S. Berry Lane

cul-de-sac. The front of the property

overlooks the pond in Orchard Hills Park.

42 years ago, the neighbors and the

Village asked the Berliners if they would

grant a 5 ft. wide easement so the Village

could build a small foot and bicycle trail

from S. Berry Lane to Orchard Hills Park.

They gladly said yes as an amenity for

neighbors and the Village.

After 42 years, the trail was in poor

condition and because it was so narrow,

the Village needed to hand shovel when

there was a snowstorm. The Village asked

if the Berliners would consider adding another 3 ft. to the

existing easement so the Village could put in a new, wider

trail made of concrete with a concrete curb. The wider trail

would allow the Village’s snowplow to clear the trail. The

new widened trail would also be much safer for pedestrians

and bicycles.

The Berliners willingly gave the additional 3 ft. easement to

the Village.

On Oct. 8, 2019, more than 25 neighbors gathered to

celebrate the Berliners generous easement gifts and the

reopening of the rebuilt trail.

Thank you Martin and Gail! GV

2019 TRAILS

REHABILITATION

PROJECT

In 2019, the Village resurfaced

5,400 linear feet of trail,

reconstructed 925 feet of trail,

and crack sealed over 19,000 feet

of trails. A new thin seal coat

product known as HA-5, was

used in Village Greens Park as

well as a slurry seal on the trail

north of Belleview between

Dayton Street and Yosemite

Street. Four segments of trail

were reconstructed in 2019 due

to their poor existing condition;

the Curtis Park Trail connection

to Green Oaks Drive, the

Clarkson Trail connection to

Chestnut Trial, the Orchard Park

Trail connection to Berry Lane,

and the Berry Avenue Trail east of

Monaco Street.

The goal of the annual Trails

Rehabilitation Project is to

maintain a safe and smooth trail

system for the users. A variety of

maintenance strategies are

employed based on the condition

of the trail and the types of

distresses present.

IMPROVEMENTS FROM

HUNTINGTON ACRES PARK

TO TOMMY DAVIS PARK

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS

IN JANUARY 2020

The next phase of the Huntington-Caley and Tommy

Davis Master Plans will begin in January 2020 with

construction of final design plans, which incorporate

resident input from two public meetings earlier this

year. Construction is anticipated to be completed by

mid-summer 2020.

The Huntington-Caley and Tommy Davis Park

Master Plans were adopted by the City in 2014 and

2007, respectively. Previously completed master plan

improvements include the pedestrian undercrossing at

Caley Avenue, extension of the regional trail, braided

gardens, and pond and channel improvements. The

current project will include stream and wetland

restoration as well as enhancements to the trails,

bridges, and park landscape along Goldsmith Gulch

from Fair Avenue north through Huntington Acres

Park and the southern portion of Tommy Davis Park.

FACIAL AESTHETICS

Landmark Medical Plaza • 7447 East Berry Avenue, Suite 160 • 720-809-8838 • www.fabeautiful.com

Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and Wednesdays 8 a.m.-7 p.m.

Is this dry Colorado weather destroying your skin? Have you

purchased multiple beauty and skin care products off the

shelves that end in lackluster results or not what you were

hoping for? If it’s time for a change from wrinkles, acne or

just dull skin. Facial Aesthetics has the knowledge and ability

to reach your skin goals.

Facial Aesthetics has been a leader in cosmetic skin care since

1992. Pamela Hill, the founder of Facial Aesthetics, has been

a key resource in developing the company into what it is

today. Pamela has evolved the medical spa industry with her

research and education of aspiring aestheticians to find the

best possible treatment for each individual patient. This

process is exemplified at Facial Aesthetics where the highly

trained staff educates patients on proper skin care while

developing a plan for continuous improvements specific to

that patient. They continue to pursue being an elite medical

spa through fostering advanced training for staff including

attendance at conferences to learn new and unique

techniques to offer their patients.

Facial Aesthetics currently has two locations, one at Rose

Medical Center in Denver and the other here in the Village.

The Greenwood Village location opened in 1997 after they

moved their Highlands Ranch location to be more centrally

located and convenient for their clientele. Alysa Paul, Facial

Aesthetics COO, said that Greenwood Village is a quaint

town that has been warm and welcoming. The environment

of Greenwood Village and concern for beauty and health

aligns with their culture and services offered. Alysa also

mentioned the ease of the city, in that the city has great

resources.

Facial Aesthetics offers a wide array of services from

injectables, skin care treatments, cool sculpting and a variety

of products to meet patients’ specific needs. Injectables are

designed to relieve a variety of different types of wrinkles

including worry lines, frown lines and crow’s feet. They can

also be used to lift the face, restore volume and rejuvenate the

skin.

Skin treatments provided by Facial Aesthetics can be directed

to repair creases, blemishes, and other imperfections. Other

non-surgical procedures can repair issues such as wrinkles and

lines, dull and aged skin, acne, prominent veins and excess

hair. These treatments can be completed through chemical

peels, facials and laser treatments.

Coolsculpting is a non-surgical in and out procedure with no

down time that works by freezing away excess fat. This

service works by freezing the excess fat cells in a directed area

which allows your body to naturally eliminate the destroyed

cell. This procedure can be complete in as little as 35 minutes

and can target several areas such as stomach, arms, bra roll,

underneath the buttocks, inner and outer thighs, love handles

and underneath the chin.

Pamela has also developed her own product line that was

derived from her accumulated years of research into specially

designed products to meet the specific needs of customers.

Pamela Metamorphosis is a collection of cleansers,

moisturizer and scrubs designed to meet specific skin care

needs from dry to normal, oily, combination or sensitive

skin. Each product has been meticulously crafted to give the

best skin care results.

Alysa believes their success comes from being able to connect

with clients and help them reach their desired skin goals.

Knowing she has been able to help and make patients feel

better about themselves is very rewarding. Patients mean so

much more to Facial Aesthetics as they become part of the

team working together to reach their goals.

Facial Aesthetics is rated one of the best medical spas in the

United States because of their qualified professionals, using

only the most advanced technology and techniques in a

modern welcoming environment. You can find their

Greenwood Village office in the Landmark Medical Plaza at

7447 East Berry Avenue, Suite 160. They are open Monday

through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and stay open until 7

p.m. on Wednesdays for their customers’ convenience. For

more information on Facial Aesthetics, check out their

products could be right for you or better yet, give them a call
