COVID-19 UPDATE

We continue to live our lives under the Governor’s Safer at

Home Order through June 30. The new

Orders allow us to enjoy the indoor dining at

restaurants, bars, and breweries. Playgrounds,

summer camps, campgrounds and swimming

pools are also open with social distancing

measures. It is great news that our State is

opening back up.

In Greenwood Village, many businesses have

opened their doors. The Village has opened

City Hall and the Maintenance Facility.

Playgrounds are now open such as Westlands

George Lantz and Silo Park, Carson Skate Park, Village

glantz@

Greens Mountain Bike Course and the Disc

greenwoodvillage.com

Golf Course. Summer camps are being hosted

303-486-5741

by the Village with strict social distancing

measures in place.

As our lives return to a more normal state, the threat of

COVID-19 remains real until there is an effective treatment

or vaccine. Because a vaccine will take many months, it is

very important to continue practicing safe habits. Please

remember, limiting face-to-face contact with others outside

your household is still the best way to reduce the spread of

COVID-19.

Remember these six important ways to protect yourself

and others:

1. Regularly wash your hands with soap and water.

2. Clean and disinfect high touch surfaces.

3. Wear a face mask in public places.

4. Keep at least 6 feet apart from others.

5. If you are sick, stay home and quarantine yourself.

6. Stay connected with family and friends.

Let’s continue to take care of ourselves, our families, and our

community. We will get through this together.

UPDATE ON VILLAGE PROJECTS

I wanted to share an exciting update on the progress of three

Village projects.

Goldsmith Gulch-Huntington Acres Park to Tommy Davis

Park — The improvements to the Maplewood Avenue

entrance and Tommy Davis Park are nearing completion

which will allow for the eastern trail along Tommy Davis Park

to be opened in the next two weeks. Channel work and trail

improvements will continue through Huntington Acres Park

with substantial completion of the complete project in mid-

August.

Belleview Medians — Great progress continues to be made

with the largest hurdle of getting horizontal boring for

irrigation water sources and electrical sources out to the

medians nearing completion. Final phases of plantings and

mulch installation has begun on the west end moving east

with substantial project completion anticipated for the end of

June.

Bridgwater Pond Improvements Project — Construction

activities for the Bridgwater Improvements project are

underway. The scope of the project is to improve water

quality in the Goldsmith Gulch corridor and remove two

buildings from the regulatory floodplain. Improvements

completed to date include the installation of a grouted

boulder drop structure and bridge/ water quality structure.

The project is anticipated to be substantially complete in June

with wetland plants and vegetation to be planted in July.

You can read more about two other Village projects on pages

VILLAGE HEROES

Congratulations to siblings Hannah and Kevin

Reyes for being named Villager Heroes. These two

teens are being recognized for making a difference

in making, selling and donating masks to the

community. Hannah, who has a hair accessory

business, was inspired by the call to action to make

masks since she has the supplies from her existing

business. She has made more than 600 masks to

date. Hannah, who is 13 years old and a freshman

at St. Mary’s Academy worked with her brother

Kevin, 17, a senior at Regis Jesuit on the

production, delivery, and donation of masks to

customers and recipients. The brother and sister

team spent months during their free time working

on their mask production. They have donated

masks to restaurant and delivery workers, post

office personnel, people at bus stops, and will soon

donate to the Children’s Hospital Colorado. They

were recently recognized by the Denver Area Council of the

Boy Scouts of America for their donation of masks that will

benefit the summer operations staff. Kevin is an Eagle Scout

and belongs to Troop 457 of Greenwood Village.

Congratulations to Martin and Jenny Rankin for being

named Village Heroes. Their recognition is a result of their

efforts during the pandemic to provide home-made masks

and soaps to their neighbors through a barrel located outside

their home. Nearly, 2,500 homemade masks have been

distributed to Greenwood Village residents and businesses.

Martin and Jenny’s work in the community is part of their

greater philanthropic efforts through an organization they

founded named the Greenwood Hobbits. The Greenwood

Hobbits is a group of neighbors that work together to

help other neighbors. You can learn more about them online

at Greenwoodhobbits.com.

TRAFFIC SIGNAL INSTALLED

After many years of discussion and work with the

Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) to

obtain approval, the new traffic signal at Belleview

Avenue and Steele Street was installed in May. The cities

of Greenwood Village and Cherry Hills Village partnered

to design and construct the traffic signal. The traffic

signal will be “turned on” in June. The traffic signal will

improve safety and reduce side street delays for residents

leaving Steele Street or those leaving the Glenmoor

Country Club. The new signal will be maintained and

operated by CDOT.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

ACQUIRES XCEL

STREET LIGHTS

It’s official. All of the Xcel street lights in the Village are

now owned by the City. The Village took over ownership

of 762 lights from Xcel Energy in May 2020, bringing the

total City-owned street lights to 924. The primary reasons

for taking over the ownership of all street lights is to lower

annual electricity costs, improve the efficiency of

maintenance, and to leverage the street light poles for

additional infrastructure needs.

Street lights in Greenwood Village are typically located

within the right-of-way and provide roadway lighting and

decorative lighting at entrances to neighborhoods. Of the

924 street lights, 762 were previously owned and

maintained by Xcel Energy. With Xcel owned lights,

Greenwood Village paid monthly for energy consumption

and routine maintenance. Most street lights do not need

monthly routine maintenance and therefore monthly costs

will be reduced to electric costs only.

In addition to lowering costs, the acquisition of street

lights will allow the Village to respond to street light

damage and make repairs more quickly. Moving forward

please report all street light outages to Public Works at

303-708-6100.

Finally, the Village will be able to maintain our unique

street light appearance while adding additional technology

to street lights. This may be in the form of small cell

infrastructure or new technology that assists in the

deployment of autonomous vehicle technology.

GOVERNOR’S SAFER AT

HOME ORDER AND IN THE

VAST, GREAT OUTDOORS

— THROUGH JUNE 30

Colorado has slowed the spread of

COVID-19 through Stay-at-Home and

Safer at Home orders; however, the virus is

still present in Colorado and can re-surge at

any time. Everyone needs to continue to do

their part to protect themselves, their loved

ones, and our communities.

At this time, Colorado transitioned to Safer

at Home and in the Vast, Great Outdoors.

While it is strongly encouraged that people at

risk of severe illness from COVID-19 remain

at home, the new Order allows limited

reopening of postsecondary institutions and

certain businesses. People are able to practice

greater social distancing in our vast outdoors

than in confined indoor spaces.

Activities that are done with 10 or fewer

individuals, following Social Distancing

Requirements for non-household members

are authorized. Individuals may participate in

local and personal recreation in outside

public spaces, as an authorized Necessary

Activity, in groups no larger

than 10 and practicing social

distancing maintaining

6 feet between participants.

Much of Colorado is now open

with restrictions to prevent the

spread of COVID-19 and

protect those at highest risk for

severe illness. Here are just a

few of the things you can now

enjoy:

• Camping

• In-person dining

• Organized sports leagues

• Parks & playgrounds

• Swimming pools

• Gyms

• Spring skiing

• Guided tours

• Retail shopping

• Short term rentals

Private campgrounds may open for

use. Playgrounds and outdoor sports

facilities, such as tennis and pickleball

courts, may be open for use for no

more than 25 people at a time.

Outdoor swimming pools may open at

50% capacity, limited to no more than

50 people. Organized recreational

youth or adult league sports may

resume activities with no more than

25 players outdoors or 10 players

indoors. Parents may attend youth

sports activities but must remain

6 feet apart from non-household

members. Spectators are strongly

discouraged for adult sports.

Gyms, recreation centers and indoor

pools may open at 25% capacity, not

to exceed 50 people, whichever is less,

per room, maintaining 6 feet

distancing. Competitive events such as

PG. 8 GV NEWSLETTER | JUNE 2020


GOVERNMENT

races and endurance events are permitted as long as

6-foot distancing and limitations on group size can be

maintained.

Guide services for fishing, hunting, biking, horseback

riding, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding,

ATV tours, and climbing are permitted in groups no

larger than 10. River outfitters, rafting, or Jeep Tours

in groups of up to 2 households in a boat or jeep

only in groups of no more than 10.

As schools plan for the 2020-21 school year under

the extraordinary circumstances brought on by

COVID-19, the Colorado Department of Education

working alongside school district leaders and the

Colorado Department of Public Health and

Environment has developed initial and draft guidance

for reopening schools in the fall.

Existing guidance for businesses that can operate is

available at covid19.colorado.gov/safer-at-home.

The State provided latest modeling data on

pandemic. The report provides an estimate of the

degree of distancing that Coloradans have achieved so

far. It also provides projections based on various

policy scenarios around physical distancing, maskwearing,

and improved case detection and

containment. The models are based on Colorado data

and assumptions.

Key findings from State’s modeling data:

• Mobility data show a continued decline in time

spent at home, likely reflecting the change from

Stay at Home to Safer at Home.

• The updated model findings, which cover the

period through May 14, indicate that COVID-19

continues to decline in Colorado, but the declines

have begun to slow.

• The extent the community is social distancing has

dropped to 75% through May 14 as the entire state

moved to Safer at Home. The reproductive number

is increasing.

• Modeling projections that extend into the summer

and through November 2020 continue to indicate

a need for social distancing of at least 65% unless

most people 60 years and older maintain high

levels of social distancing (80%) as seen during the

Stay-at-Home period.

• Relaxation of social distancing to lower levels (45%

or lower) is predicted to lead to a surge in sick

people in excess of hospital capacity by midsummer,

even if implemented with mask-wearing,

increased case detection and isolation, and higher

levels of social distancing by all older adults.

• Model findings indicate that increased maskwearing

will help control the COVID-19 epidemic.

COVID-19 UPDATE

A MASK CAN SAVE A LIFE

COLORADO GOVERNOR ISSUES

EXECUTIVE ORDER ALLOWING

BUSINESS TO REFUSE SERVICE

TO MASKLESS CUSTOMERS

In an effort to slow the

spread of COVID-19 in

the State, Governor Polis

issued an Executive Order

in June allowing

businesses across

Colorado to refuse service to customers

who will not wear a mask.

The public is strongly encouraged to wear

face coverings to cover your nose and

mouth in settings where contact with

others may occur. According to Tri-County

Health Department (TCHD), and

endorsed by the CDC and the Surgeon

General, there is laboratory-based evidence

that sufficiently supports the use of nonmedical

or cloth face masks. Face coverings

are believed to be particularly important in

preventing transmission to others,

especially among the large percentage

of COVID-19 infected persons who

are asymptomatic and don’t realize

that they have a risk of transmitting

infection to others.

Wearing cloth face coverings is an

additional public health measure

people should take to reduce the

spread of COVID-19. CDC still

recommends that you stay at least 6

feet away from other people (social

distancing), frequent hand cleaning

and other everyday preventive

actions.

Cloth face coverings can be made

from household items or made at

home from common materials at

low cost. Surgical masks and N95

respirators are in short supply and

should be reserved for healthcare

workers or other medical first

responders.

FACE COVERINGS

SHOULD:

• Be clean and in good repair.

• Fit snugly, but comfortably

against the side of the face.

• Be secure.

• Include multiple layers of fabric.

• Allow for breathing without

restriction.

• Be able to be laundered and

machine dried on a daily basis.

MASKS SHOULD NOT:

• Have anything hanging off the

facial covering

that would create a food safety

hazard.

• Have holes or tears.

• Masks should not be shared with

others.

WEARING MASKS:

• Wash your hands before and after

putting a facial covering in place.

• Do not touch the facial covering

again until you remove it.

• Masks should be positioned so

that there is no need to adjust or

otherwise touch the face

frequently.

• If your mask becomes soiled or

hard to breathe through, you

should remove and not wear

again until laundered.

• Remove your mask to eat and

drink and if it is still in good

repair, you may continue to use it

for the duration of your day. GV

COVID-19 UPDATE

GUIDANCE FOR SMALL GATHERINGS

Colorado continues to operate under the Safer at Home

Guidelines through June 30. This includes limiting

gatherings to no more than 10 people. Although limiting

face-to-face contact with others is still the best way to reduce

the spread of COVID-19, here is some guidance on how to

stay safe during small social gatherings such as birthday

parties, barbecues, and picnics.

THE BASICS

Social distancing — keeping space between yourself and

other people that live outside of your home — masking,

hand washing and staying home when you are sick are still

the best way to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Guests should be asked to wear a cloth mask and keep 6 feet

apart from each other at all times. Guests should self-screen

themselves for symptoms before coming to a gathering and

anyone showing symptoms should stay home.

Providing easy access to hand washing and/or hand sanitizer

is a good way to encourage guests to wash their hands

frequently. Provide paper towels by all sinks to dry hands to

avoid using a common cloth towel with people outside your

household.

Special care should be taken in social interactions involving

those people most vulnerable to serious complications of

COVID-19 (those > 65 or with underlying illnesses) and it is

important that gatherings remain small with groups not

exceeding 10 people at any time.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

Keeping Everyone Six Feet Apart

• Use tape or other marker to identify where people should

sit or stand or to illustrate personal distance among people

when gathering.

• Consider having your gathering outside to increase the

amount of space and open air.

• Remind guests to stay 6 feet apart. Signs can be a fun way

to keep guests aware of spacing.

• Have a separate entrance and exit to decrease the number

of people passing each other.

Preventing Unnecessary Contact

During In-Person Gatherings

• Set up a way to video-call in guests, especially family and

friends that are vulnerable.

• Have visitors come in shifts to decrease the number of

people visiting at one time. Wipe down chairs and other

touched surfaces between guests. Invite more vulnerable

guests to visit earlier and alone if they do not remain at

home.

• Prop open doors and take lids off of trash cans to decrease

the number of items touched.

• Remove unnecessary items that guests may be tempted to

touch like lawn games.

Increasing Sanitation

• Keep disinfecting wipes close to commonly touched

surfaces like doors and bathrooms and encourage guests to

use them.

• If serving food, ask guests to use their own utensils to

serve themselves rather than any shared serving utensils.

Consider a picnic style gathering and ask guests to bring

their own food and drink or serve a pre-packaged meal

instead of buffet or family-style.

• Identify someone to wipe down surfaces frequently.

• Have hand sanitizer available in different areas and

encourage people to use it frequently, in addition to hand

washing.

Other

• Provide cloth face coverings to those guests that do not

have one.

• If possible, consider asking guests to bring their own

chairs to decrease the number of touched surfaces.

• Before allowing young children to participate, consider

their ability to understand and adhere to social distancing.

• If inside, consider opening windows to increase

ventilation.

• If you plan to use your own private pool, clean handrails

often; avoid sharing pool noodles, goggles, kickboards and

toys; avoid using slides and other structures designed for

climbing or playing; take turns swimming to reduce the

number of people in the pool at one time; remind visitors

to keep their distance and use EPA approved disinfectants.

• Consider the level of transmission in your area and in the

areas where guests may be visiting from. If the

transmission rate is high in your area it is riskier to gather,

even in small groups of just family.

• Send your plan to guests ahead of time to allow them to

prepare and ask questions: this is a time to be intentional

about taking steps to protect yourself and family/friends

and not leave it to chance.

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.

FENCES

All fences in Greenwood Village must be constructed, repaired and

replaced according to the Village’s fence regulations. A plan must be

submitted to the Village before a fence permit can be issued. The fence is

inspected after construction to ensure it is consistent with the approved

plan. Depending on the zoning district, PUD and/or subdivision in which

you live, there are many particulars concerning fences, such as allowable

height, opacity, setback from property lines, types, and visibility triangle

concerns. Essentially, fences built on berms or rear yards, cannot exceed

six feet (6) in height, cannot be barbed wire, and cannot be erected in

front yards, with certain exceptions. Side and rear lot setbacks, particular

to your zoning district and Planned Unit Development, must also be met.

Fences are required around an outdoor pool that is not equipped with an

approved power safety cover.

parking area directly adjacent to the business,

ensure adequate distance between the eating area

and all auto drive aisles.

parking area and drive aisles of the parking lot,

ensure adequate safety for pedestrians and

customers by providing a barrier separating the

eating area from the parking lot and auto drive

aisles.

MAKING A difference

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY

COMMISSION APPOINTMENTS

The following citizens were appointed by the Greenwood Village City Council to serve on the various boards and commissions:

Jeffrey Scott, District 1

Parks, Trails and

Recreation Commission

Jeff Scott is a retired lawyer

who has lived in Greenwood

Village for 12 years. He recently

worked for two summers as a

part-time seasonal maintenance

worker for the Greenwood

Village Parks, Trails and

Recreation Department focusing on the Marjorie

Perry Preserve, which is near where he lives with his

wife Gail and dog Ollie. Jeff has developed a certain

expertise in dealing with weeds, especially

Verbascum thapsus (Mullein), a Colorado Class C

noxious weed, which he would like to see eradicated

from our open spaces.

Jeff and Gail enjoy walking on the High Line Canal at

all times of the year and watching the wildlife and

nature through the seasons. Ollie especially enjoys

his walks along the canal and encountering the

numerous dogs, squirrels and waterfowl with whom

he shares the canal.

Jeff looks forward to working with the PTR

Commission to continue the great work of the PTR

Department in protecting and enhancing the natural

features of our special community, especially the

open spaces within Greenwood Village we all enjoy.

For more information on how to serve on a

Village board or commission, please call the

City Clerk’s Office at 303-486-5752 or

email Susan Ortiz, City Clerk, at

sortiz@greenwoodvillage.com.

Jim Sidinger, District 4

Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission

Jim Sidinger and his wife Jean have resided in

Greenwood Village since 2008. A Coloradan for 43

years, Jim is unofficially a “semi-native.” He is a strong

believer in contributing to his community through

active citizen participation. Prior to his appointment to

the Parks, Trails and Recreation Commission, Jim

spent eight years on the Greenwood Village Arts and

Humanities Council, seven as Council chair.

Raised in semi-rural northern Illinois, and being an avid camper and hiker, he

especially appreciates the importance of nurturing open spaces, parks, and trails

for use by urban populations. As an active participant in amateur sports for much

of his life, he also understands the value of recreation and arts programs like

those supported here, including those of the Curtis Center. These interests led

him to seek this position. He looks forward to being a contributing member of

this Commission, created to develop and support these important city resources.

Jim is a fine art, landscape photographer who works — non-digitally — with a

large-format, film camera. He has a traditional, chemical darkroom in his home

where he develops and processes his film and creates his hand-made traditional

silver prints. The subject of much of his work is the landscape of Colorado. He

has received many honors and awards for his photography. One he is especially

proud of is having been chosen, along with Jean (a painter and writer), to be

Artist-in-Residence for the National Park Service at the Great Sand Dunes

National Park & Preserve — a place they revisit multiple times a year.

He also serves on the boards of the two Homeowner Associations that govern

the Cottonwood Grove community where he and Jean live.

Prior to his artistic career, Jim was a software technologist who, after achieving

his Mathematics/Physics BS and Mathematics MS, started at Bell Telephone

Laboratories. His last position in this field was as founder and chief technologist

of his Colorado based software consulting and development company.

Jim is honored to have been appointed to the PTR Commission. He hopes to

help Greenwood Village continue to be a leader in the development and support

of these resources for the benefit all living in our first-rate city.

NEW ART IN RUNNING FOX PARK

At their January 6 meeting, the Greenwood Village City Council voted to purchase and install a

piece of public art in the newly renovated Running Fox Park. The chosen work is “Within Reach”

by Sedalia, Colorado, artist Laurel Gregory. The process originated with a request from Parks, Trails

and Recreation Commission member Ellie Moller, to the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities

Council. The Arts Council then opened a call for artists and received 29 submissions from 18

Colorado based artists. After forming a selection committee, the GVAHC presented the chosen

piece to the PTR Commission and then to the City Council for final approval.

“Within Reach” is constructed of lost wax aluminum casting and depicts a playful fox sitting on a

perch. The artist says of her work, “My art has

always represented my vision and spirit. And if my

current bronze sculpture series is any indication,

that spirit is a tad whimsical.” This whimsy can be

seen in “Within Reach.” The artwork was installed

in May and is ready for you to view in person.

Funding for this project was provided by the

Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council,

through fundraising initiatives.
