THE MAYOR’S message

COVID-19 —

WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER

As we all work together to reduce the spread of COVID-19,

the health and safety of our nation is our

highest priority. We continue to monitor this

rapidly evolving pandemic. Village staff and I

are in constant contact with federal, state and

local agencies to share resources and

information. At the local level, Greenwood

Village has partnered with Arapahoe County to

combat COVID-19, through the formation of

a County Wide Incident Emergency

Management Command System. This

Command System includes an array of

agencies, law enforcement, and key personnel

from every city. We are also in daily

conversations with Mayors across the metro

area; the Governor’s Office, and the Tri-County

Health Department.

As part of our efforts to ensure the health and safety of the

community, we want to make sure you receive the most

updated information and resources to help your families and

businesses get through this public crisis. For your

convenience, we have established a designated web page on

our Village website — greenwoodvillage.com/covid19. This

site includes a wealth of information and is being updated as

information becomes available. There are also links to other

website resources that may be helpful to you listed below:

• greenwoodvillage.com/covid19

• Covid19.colorado.gov

• Tchd.org

• Cdc.gov

Access to City facilities are limited to employees until at least

April 26. This includes, but is not limited to, public business

and activities at City Hall (including Municipal Court) and

our Maintenance Facility. Please note the Curtis Center for

the Arts is temporarily closed. It is imperative to let you

know that even though we are currently operating under the

State’s Stay at Home Order through April 26, Village staff is

committed to deliver essential services. If you have questions

or need assistance from a department, please call City Hall’s

main number: 303-773-0252; for emergencies, please call

911. To access the department directory, visit

greenwoodvillage.com/directory. You may also email us at

thevillage@greenwoodvillage.com.

Lastly, I want to encourage everyone to patronize Greenwood

Village businesses that have

been deemed essential and

remain open. Many of

them have created unique

ways to support their

customers and our

community. One example

is our restaurants which are

now offering takeout,

delivery or curbside

services. You can find the

list on our website at

www.greenwoodvillage

.com/foodandbeverage.

This list is constantly being

updated for your

convenience.

Working together will

ensure everyone’s wellbeing

during this public

health crisis. Please check

in on the people in your

lives, including the

GOVERNOR’S

STAY IN PLACE ORDER —

EFFECTIVE UNTIL APRIL 26

On Wednesday, March 25, 2020, Governor Polis issued

an executive order requiring all Coloradans to stay in

place due to the presence of coronavirus disease

(COVID-19) in the State of Colorado. The Order is

effective until April 26 at 11:59 p.m. (unless rescinded

or modified by further Executive Order.). The Order was

precautionary due to the number of confirmed cases

continuing to increase, and to ensure the healthcare

system can serve those who require hospitalization.

The Stay in Place Order is mandatory. The Governor’s Order

requires that everyone in the State take extreme steps to stay at

their place of residence and avoid contact with anybody outside

their household. People should make every effort possible to

conduct only essential activities necessary to maintain health and

well-being, such as getting groceries, obtaining medical supplies

or medication, and/or engaging in outdoor activities like walking,

hiking or running while following other social distancing practices

such as keeping your distance of 6 feet from other people.

Unless you work for a critical business or are doing an essential

activity, you should stay home. Work from home is permitted and

encouraged where possible. Although this order does not apply to

critical business, social distancing will be mandated for those

businesses that remain open.

Under these Orders, parks in

Greenwood Village will

remain open for walking,

biking, hiking and running;

however; playgrounds, golf

courses (including disc golf

courses), basketball courts,

tennis courts, pickleball

courts, and picnic areas will

be closed.

Please do your part and

ensure everyone in your

household, including

teenagers and young adults,

comply with the Governor’s

Orders, including practicing

social distancing and avoid

any physical gathering outside

the family of your home.

Your efforts will help flatten

the curve, save lives, and get

us back to our daily routine

sooner.

ARAPAHOE COUNTY

PROPERTY TAX RELIEF

INTEREST WAIVED ON

CERTAIN TAX PAYMENTS

Businesses and individuals in Arapahoe County, who

intended to pay their property taxes in one installment

due April 30, now have the option of paying in two

installments. The first installment (one half of the total

tax due) may be paid with no interest added if paid by

April 20. The second installment will then be due June

15. Hopefully, this will provide some relief by spreading

out the tax payments and lengthening the time allowed

to pay without interest.

To take advantage of this relief, the tax payment must be

made by check or cash, via mail or deposited in the

secure drop box in front of the Arapahoe County

Administrative Building at 5334 S. Prince Street in Littleton.

Online and over-the-phone payments do not qualify for the

interest waiver.

At this time, no adjustments to tax payment due dates or

additional late interest waivers have been made. Full

payments made after April 30 and second half payments

made after June 15, will accrue statutory interest.

The above information does not apply to mass payments,

title company payments and delinquent payments for prior

years.

SAFETY TIPS

PROTECT

YOURSELF

AND OTHERS

EVERYDAY

PREVENTIVE ACTIONS

You can never be too careful with

coronavirus rapidly infecting

thousands of people globally each day.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) transmits

and behaves like the common cold or

the flu. This means it can be

transmitted by coughing, sneezing,

and by touching your eyes or mouth

after coming in contact with the virus.

• Cough or sneeze into your sleeve, or

if you use a tissue then discard the

tissue and promptly wash your hands.

• Avoid close contact with people who

are sick.

• Stay home while you are sick and

avoid close contact with others.

• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and

mouth.

• Wash your hands often with soap

and water for at least 20 seconds.

• If soap and water are not readily

available, use an alcohol-based hand

sanitizer that contains at least 60%

alcohol if hands are not visibly soiled.

Make sure to wash your

face covering frequently.

• Clean and disinfect surfaces you use

regularly; Use soap and water to

clean surfaces like counter tops and

door handles that you use on a

regular basis. Lysol, Clorox and

other materials marked as

“disinfectants” are proven to be

effective at reducing the spread of

coronavirus. Make sure that the

substance you use as an alcohol

content of at least 60%.

• Always wear a mask when going

outdoors or to the grocery store.

TAKE CARE OF YOUR

EMOTIONAL HEALTH

It is important during this time to take

care of your physical health, you also

need to pay attention to your

emotional health. You can reduce your

stress by taking positive steps to

protect yourself and your loved ones.

• Take care of yourself by doing

things to relax you, such as

breathing deeply; listening to

music; enjoying sports, hobbies or

reading.

• Move your body/exercise, eat

healthy, and get enough sleep.

• Check-in with your friends, coworkers,

and family.

• Take breaks from the news and

social media. Make sure that your

information only comes from

reputable sources.

• Develop a COVID-19 disaster

kit so that you will have the

supplies you need if you or a loved

one gets ill.

SOCIAL DISTANCING:

WHAT YOU

NEED TO KNOW

What is Social Distancing?

Think small. Avoiding gatherings and

maintain distance (approximately 6

feet) from others when possible. If you

know someone who is sick, avoid

physical contact with them. That

means no hugs, no kisses and no

shaking hands. If you touched

something that they just touched,

wash your hands.

Chances are if you know someone

with the coronavirus, they are most

likely in some form of quarantine.

However, if you happen upon an

individual with coronavirus who has

not been quarantined yet, don’t come

in physical contact with them.

Stay in your house unless you need

to:

• Go grocery shopping

• Need to see a doctor

• Need to go to work (if you’re not

working from home)

By practicing social distancing, we can

reduce contact between people to slow

down the spread of the virus. Even if

you are symptom-free and not part of

a high-risk group or an older adult,

you still need to practice social

distancing. GV

GOVERNMENT

GVPD WARNS ABOUT

CORONAVIRUS SCAMS

With the rapid spread of COVID-19 and the escalating

government response, there has been an increase in

COVID-19 related scams. If you feel you have been a victim

of a scam, please report it to the Police Department at

303-773-2525.

Fake Charities: When a major health event happens — like

the coronavirus — people look for ways to help. Some

scammers use names that sound a lot like the names of real

charities. Make sure you do your own research before giving.

Fake Stimulus Check Inquiries: As the stimulus checks get

ready for processing, remember the following:

• The government will never ask you to pay anything

upfront to get this money.

• The government will not call to ask for your social

security number, bank account or credit card number.

• Nobody can get you’re the money now to avoid the wait.

Fake Emails, Texts And Phishing: Scammers use fake emails

or texts to get you to share valuable personal information —

like account numbers, social security numbers, or your login

IDs and passwords. They use phishing emails to get access to

your computer or network. If you click on a link, they can

install ransomware or other programs that can lock you out

of your data. Scammers often use familiar company names or

pretend to be someone you know.

Robocalls: Scammers are using robocalls to pitch everything

from scam Coronavirus treatments to work-at-home schemes.

What to do? Hang up. Don’t press any numbers. The

recording might say that pressing a number will let you speak

to a live operator or remove you from their call list, but it

might lead to more robocalls, instead.

Undelivered Goods: Online sellers claim they have indemand

products, like cleaning, household, and health and

medical supplies. You place an order, but you never get your

shipment. What to do? Check out the seller by searching

online for the person or company’s name, phone number and

email address, plus words like “review,” “complaint” or

“scam.” If everything checks out, pay by credit card and keep

a record of your transaction.

Misinformation And Rumors: Scammers, and sometimes

well-meaning people, share information that hasn’t been

verified. What to do? Before you pass on any messages, and

certainly before you pay someone or share your personal

information, do some fact checking by contacting trusted

sources.

Here are some tips to help guard you against scammers:

• Don’t click on links from sources

you don’t know.

• Watch out for emails claiming to

be from the Centers for Disease

Control and Prevention (CDC) or

experts saying that have

information about the virus.

• Ignore online offers for

vaccinations. There are no

vaccinations available.

• Be alert to “investment

opportunities.” The U.S. Securities

and Exchange Commission (SEC)

is warning people about online

promotions, including on social

media, claiming that the products

or services of publicly-traded

companies can prevent, detect, or

cure coronavirus and that the

stock of these companies will

dramatically increase in value as a

result. GV

TRAIL ETIQUETTE AND

SAFETY FOR PEDESTRIANS,

EQUESTRIANS

AND BICYCLISTS

PARKS AND TRAILS ARE BUSIER THAN

USUAL RIGHT NOW; PLEASE MAKE SURE

YOUR FAMILY IS FOLLOWING THE 6 FOOT

RULE FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES.

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 sideby-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

the Police Department at 303-773-2525. GV

SOCIAL DISTANCING AND WALKING YOUR DOG

Respect space and distance with other

dog walkers, keeping a 6 foot distance at

all times.

To avoid a negative interaction with other

dog walkers, follow these tips:

• Every dog behaves differently when

walking outside. Take frequent small

steps in introducing your dog to a new

environment, such as a new park or

trail. The more your dog is familiar

with its environment the less anxiety

the dog will display, such as

aggressiveness toward other

approaching dogs and strangers.

• Use a training collar when walking

your dog, i.e. choke chain collar or

choke nylon collar, to be used only

for correcting and controlling your

dog when an encounter occurs

during a walk.

• Use only a leash that is no longer

than six feet in length that is not

retractable. A retractable leash is not

a good training tool to keep your dog

at a consistent distance when

walking. A six- foot leash gives

better control of the dog in advance

of any encounter that may occur.

• While training your dog on a leash,

choose times during the day that are

not busy with frequent dog walkers.

• Consult with a professional dog trainer

in getting information on how your

dog can be conditioned to walk in

locations with high pedestrian traffic.

Your dog’s body posture is the key.

the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.

Small business owners in all U.S. states are eligible to apply

for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to

$10,000. The loan advance will provide economic relief to

businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of

revenue. Funds will be made available within three days of a

BLACK CUBE SELECTS

CURTIS CENTER

TO PARTICIPATE

IN NEWEST PROJECT

The Curtis Center for the Arts was

selected by Black Cube, a gallery

without walls, to participate in their

latest project, SHARE. SHARE is a

series of 100 small-scale, bronze,

sculptural text installations by Mexico

City-based artist and Black Cube

Fellow, Anuar Maauad. The artworks

are installed on building facades

throughout the Denver area.

Each sculptural phrase mimics the

thick, geometric, slab serif font and

gold coloring of the iconic Trump

Tower sign. Maauad’s series of text

installations are approachable in scale

and relay an uplifting message: “To

share is precious, pure, and fair.” The

phrase is a lyric from “I Want You” by

American singer and songwriter

Marvin Gaye.

In doing so, the artist subtly

transforms an icon synonymous with

power into an artwork that symbolizes

kindness. By engaging numerous

public sites throughout the

community and encouraging members

of the community to disseminate a

positive anecdote, the artist is literally

acting out the message of his work.

The artwork at the Curtis Center for

the Arts can be found on the north

side of the building. More information

can be found at www.blackcube.art.

Curtis Center for the Arts.

The event takes place Saturday, September 12, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
