BELLEVIEW AND I-25

INTERCHANGE PROJECT UPDATE

The I-25 and Belleview Interchange Project recently completed

an approximately 18-month technical analysis. Through this

data-driven process, the project’s Technical Advisory Committee

(TAC) identified two final interchange alternatives — a Split

Diamond with Union Avenue and a Single Point Urban

Interchange (SPUI). Both alternatives were analyzed in a

detailed evaluation of specific criteria, including traffic

operations, safety, multimodal, community impacts (access,

environmental, right-of-way, constructability), and cost.

Outgoing PTR Commission Members, from left to right:

Margaret Griffes, District 2; Len Goldstein, District 1;

Ellie Moller, District 2; Brent Neiser, District 3, Chair;

Bob Tews, District 3; and not pictured: Kathy McClintock,

District 4.

This evaluation concluded the technical analysis for the

conceptual project design stage. The TAC provided this

information to an Executive Committee (EC).

Before the EC makes a final decision, it is important to

have meaningful public involvement. The project team is

finalizing a Public Involvement (PI) Plan that is expected

to be implemented in October 2020 and will last several

weeks. The tentative PI Plan includes updates to the

existing project website, an intensive outreach effort to

encourage public engagement (residential and business), a

live virtual webinar consisting of project presentation and

question/answer feedback, this webinar will be recorded

and posted on the project website, and follow-up outreach

to maximize public feedback opportunities. The project

team will utilize a number of technological resources/tools

to conduct these meetings while taking into consideration

the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions.

After completion of the public

involvement process the EC will

evaluate both the results of the

technical analysis and feedback from

the public involvement process to

make a decision on which alternative

to advance. Based on the current

project schedule, the EC discussion

is anticipated to take place in

November 2020. The following step

will include preliminary design and

a focus on project funding.

IMPROVEMENTS FROM

HUNTINGTON ACRES PARK

TO TOMMY DAVIS PARK

I wanted to update you on the Huntington-Caley and Tommy

Davis Project. Construction began in January of this year and is

anticipated to be complete in November 2020.

• The Maplewood Avenue access trail improvements are

complete and open to park users. These improvements

included a new 8-ft. wide concrete trail, curb and gutter,

landscaping, and irrigation system.

• Both pedestrian bridges have been installed in Tommy Davis

Park. The northern bridge just south of the pond is open.

The southern bridge access is nearing completion with the

concrete decking, adjacent sidewalks, and railing being

completed in the next few weeks.

• The new concrete trickle channel and concrete wetland wall

Mayor’s Message

continued from page 3

through Tommy Davis Park is complete. Landscaping and

irrigation improvements within Tommy Davis Park will be

complete in the next several weeks.

• Channel work through Huntington Acres Park is on-going. This

work includes a new wetland channel, a 10-ft. wide concrete

trail through the park, landscaping and irrigation improvements.

• The final portion of the project will connect the trail through

Huntington Acres Park to the trail in the recently completed

Huntington-Caley open space to the south. This will require

moving the Fair Avenue cul-de-sac to the west, utility

relocations, landscaping and irrigation improvements.

Funding for the project came from the Village’s Annual Capital

Improvement Program (CIP), Arapahoe County Open Spaces,

Colorado Lottery, and the Mile High Flood District.

For more information, please call Josh Morin, Parks Project

Manager, at 303-708-6113 or email jmorin@greenwoodvillage.com.

Thank you for continuing to follow health department

guidelines to keep everyone safe. I hope you continue

COLORADO 9-1-1

SYSTEM OVERVIEW

9-1-1 is a local service in Colorado,

managed and provided by local

agencies. There are 85- 9-1-1 call

centers in the state, with the smallest

service areas as small as a college

campus (both CSU and CU-Boulder

have their own 9-1-1 centers), and the

largest providing service to six counties

(the Colorado State Police office in

Alamosa processes 9-1-1 calls for all of

the San Luis Valley).

The management of the 9-1-1 centers

is usually handled by a city or county

government. In a few cases, the 9-1-1

center may operate as an independent

agency through an intergovernmental

agreement between several political

entities. A small number of 9-1-1

centers are also operated by college

campuses, as mentioned above, by the

Colorado State Police, or by federal

agencies, such as the 9-1-1 centers that

serve certain military bases in the state.

“I really wanted to expand my

career in policing in order to help

people and was excited to

become a 9-1-1 dispatcher for

Greenwood Village. I have always

heard great things about

Greenwood Village and how well

they treat their employees.

Everyone works together and

they care about you. Its a good

place to work.”

— Heather McDougall

Call centers in Colorado vary greatly

in size and capacity, from the smallest

having one or two telecommunicators

on duty at a time to the largest having

dozens of call takers, police

dispatchers, fire dispatchers,

supervisors, trainers, and IT personnel

who help keep the center operating

smoothly.

FUNDING

9-1-1 centers in Colorado are funded

primarily through a combination of

funds from emergency telephone

charges and general funds from the

cities and counties that operate them.

Emergency telephone charge rates are

set locally, but increases must be

“I really

enjoyed

reading the

material

about GV,

size of the

department,

and had a

strong

community

feel which

are are some of the reasons I chose to

work here. The team is very supportive

of each other. This is a great place to

start a career as a 9-1-1 dispatcher.”

— Emily Gronvold

Almost every decision regarding how a

9-1-1 center is operated is also a local

decision, including how the center is

staffed, what services the center

provides, and what training is received

by the public safety telecommunicators

— the individuals who take 9-1-1 calls

and dispatch first responders. There is

no statewide minimum training

standard for public safety

telecommunicators in Colorado.

The Colorado Public Utilities

Commission oversees the delivery of

9-1-1 calls to a 9-1-1 call center. Once

the call is received at the call center,

however, it is the responsibility of the

local agencies operating the call center

to process the call and respond to the

caller’s request for assistance.

“When I was looking at Police

Departments, the main thing for me

was choosing a department that

prioritizes relationships with the

community. When I found Greenwood

Village, the city stood out by not just

their words, but their actions to create

an environment that supports that. My

goal is to become a Police Officer in

Greenwood Village and to continue to

foster a strong relationship between

law enforcement and its citizens.”

— Chris Wynn

approved by the Colorado

Public Utilities Commission.

Emergency telephone charge

funds are usually managed by

a separate entity called a 9-1-1

Authority Board, which

decides how to expend the

funds. Statute provides a list

of allowable uses for 9-1-1

surcharge funds, but they can

be spent on equipment,

personnel, training, and anything

directly related to the operation of the

9-1-1 center. While there are 85 9-1-1

centers in the state, there are only 58

local 9-1-1 Authority Boards, with

some Authorities providing funding to

more than one 9-1-1 center.

GREENWOOD

VILLAGE

9-1-1 CENTER

2019 CALL STATS

• 72,192 phone calls

• 14,630 of them were 9-1-1 Calls

• 78% of those 9-1-1 Calls came

from cell phones

• 7% came from businesses

• 8% VOIP internet

• 1% residential landlines

• 4% PBX (office landline has to dial

9 to get outside line)

• 2% (unknown origin of service)

Emergency telephone charges in

Colorado range from 70¢ per month

per line to $3.00 per month per line.

Recent legislation passed in Colorado

also creates a statewide 9-1-1 surcharge

that will then be distributed to the

local 9-1-1 Authorities based on a

formula. This additional surcharge will

help reimburse local governments for

the cost of complying with technology

upgrades to the 9-1-1 system that are

necessary. This rate will be set by the

Colorado Public Utilities Commission,

and may be anywhere from zero to

fifty cents per month line, and will be

listed separately on each telephone bill

starting in January of 2021.

TECHNOLOGY

Colorado is currently in the process of

migrating all of its 9-1-1 centers from

an analog, switch-based 9-1-1 system

to a more modern Internet Protocolbased

9-1-1 system. This migration is

expected to make the 9-1-1

network more resilient, as well

as to prepare the 9-1-1

network to handle additional

types of information in the

future, such as text, data,

pictures, and video, rather

than just voice calls. This

migration is currently

underway, and is expected to

be completed in 2021.

Sunday-Thursday 12 p.m.-8 p.m., Friday-Saturday 12 p.m.-9 p.m.

Looking for a refreshing boba tea for those warmer, autumn

days or a soothing freshly squeezed hot lemon black tea to

take the chill out of the fall air? Visit Happy Lemon where

their tea is brewed fresh throughout the day, using the finest

tea leaves and love for ingredients.

explained that they selected this centralized location due to

its close proximity to I-25. They are excited to serve the

residents and workforce of Greenwood Village and nearby

communities.

Happy Lemon is not your standard boba shop. They use only

the freshest ingredients with hand selected freshly squeezed

lemon juice, grapefruit, strawberries, avocado, mint leaves

manually brew their sweeteners from cane sugar and brown

sugar. No flavored syrups or fructose sweeteners are used.

According to Lee, “Happy Lemon is the freshest boba shop

in Colorado.”

Their menu features a classic milk tea series, salted cheese

series, freshly squeezed lemon series, pure tea, specialty drinks

and smoothies. The classic milk tea can be topped with your

choice of either boba, Oreos, pudding, puff cream or lychee

jelly. Milk Tea with Oreo and Puff Cream and the Dark

Brown Sugar Boba Milk Tea are two of their most popular

selections.

The salted cheese drinks have a unique foam that sits on top

of your choice of green, black or milk tea and provides a

subtle hint of saltiness to your drink. Salted cheese choices

include chocolate, strawberry, black or jasmine green tea. The

salty froth can be added to any drink selection. According to

Lee, “The best way to drink the salted cheese series is to let

the foam sit on top and tilt the cup 45 degrees to get the best

of both the sweet and salty.” Try the Jasmine Green Tea or

Strawberry Black Tea with Salted Cheese for an uplifting

experience.

Their specialty series offers more fruity selections such as

Passion Fruit Green Tea with Lychee Jelly, Grapefruit Green

Tea, and Strawberry with Lychee Jelly made with either green

or black tea. Or try the Matcha Latte or the Chocolate with

Pudding. If smoothies are your preference, the Mango Yakult,

Mango Matcha and Strawberry Shortcake smoothies are also

popular choices.

Their large array of drink selections can be made hot or cold.

Please your taste buds by controlling the sweetness or citrus

levels in your order. Tell them your preferences for a perfect

drink and they are sure to satisfy your cravings.

Don’t forget to order the bubble waffle, original or chocolate,

as the perfect pairing to your refreshing beverage. Crispy on

the outside and fluffy on the inside, the bubble waffle is a

delicious compliment to your drink. Eat it alone or dip it in

your salted cheese drink for an appealing adventure.

Enjoy a cup of their infamous Jasmine Green Tea with Salted

Cheese, treat yourself to a Milk Tea with Oreo and Puff

Cream, or simply come in for the aroma of their freshly

baked Bubble Waffles! Happy Lemon is open Sunday

through Thursdays from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and

Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. They are located at 9686

East Arapahoe Road, Unit B. Their full menu is available at

RECREATION REIMBURSEMENT

Now that you may be out golfing again or have enrolled your

children in sports programs, it’s a perfect time to submit

those 2020 receipts for reimbursement through the Village’s

Recreation Reimbursement program.

The Village reimburses residents for a portion of activities at

qualifying entities. Reimbursable entities include public

recreation facilities such as parks and recreation districts and

metropolitan districts, municipal golf courses, and nonprofit

youth sports agencies. Entities must be within the Denver

Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) boundaries,

which is roughly Longmont to Larkspur and Deer Trail to

Silver Plume.

Receipts must be submitted for the year in which the

payment was made, not the year in which the activity takes

place. As you pay for spring 2021 youth sports this fall, keep

in mind those receipts must be submitted in 2020.

For more information on this program, please visit

www.greenwoodvillage.com/recreimbursement. Forms have

been included in the middle of this Newsletter for your

convenience. Please call Julie at 303-486-5750, or Debbie at

303-486-5759, with questions.
