HAPPY HOLIDAYS

I want to wish you and your family a happy and healthy

holiday season.

This year has been an unprecedented time for

families and businesses presenting challenges

for everyone. I remain hopeful vaccines will be

rapidly deployed allowing us to return to a

more "normal" life.

ENJOY OUR PARKS

AND TRAILS

During this difficult time, when many of our

activities are restricted, I want to encourage you

to enjoy the Village’s many Parks and Trails.

Whether you are enjoying the High Line

Canal, Village Greens Park, Westlands, Tommy

Davis or any of the many other parks, I believe

you will enjoy the peace and beauty of being outside in a safe

environment. There are 20 parks and 47 trail miles in the

Village for you to enjoy. A list of the parks and map of the

trails is available on the Village website. The link is:

PLEASE SUPPORT OUR

BUSINESS COMMUNITY

Now more than ever our restaurants need our help. As you

will read on page 16, many restaurants are working to keep

their doors open by offering creative menus including

takeout and many innovative options to facilitate outdoor

dining. Please help out by patronizing local establishments.

Their success helps not only the business but also our Village.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

CARES PROGRAM

I want to share some good news about the Greenwood

Village Cares Program. In partnership with Arapahoe

County, the City Council directed our funding be used to

support the local business community. The first GV CARES

Small Business Grant Program was launched in July to help

the Greenwood Village business community respond to the

ongoing public health emergency. During Round 1, the City

awarded 223 applicants nearly $2 million in GV CARES

funds. A second round was launched in September. Round 2

awarded another 198 applicants over $2.6 million. These

funds have helped businesses reopen, provide PPE and

enhance their facility to meet health department

requirements.

HUNTINGTON ACRES AND

VILLAGE HERO

Congratulations to Tiffane Eschbach for being named a

Village Hero!

While visiting Cherry Creek State Park with her family,

Tiffane discovered a large bird wrapped in a fishing line on

the Reservoir’s shore. Tiffane contacted park officials and

waited patiently for assistance.

Unfortunately, a flock of crows

discovered the injured bird with

a different intent. Without

hesitation, Tiffane went to the

bird’s rescue! She scared off the

crows and on her third attempt

she was able to use her

sweatshirt to wrap and protect

the bird. Shortly, a Loon

enthusiast arrived in an orange

kayak. The Loon enthusiast had

been looking for the injured bird

for a several days. The good

news is the Loon is now

rehabilitating and is expected to

make a full recovery. Thank you

Tiffane for making a difference!

Best wishes for Wonderful

Holiday Season and a Happy

and Healthy New Year!

KEEP YOUR PACKAGES SAFE

FROM PORCH PIRATES

It’s that time of year when your holiday packages start arriving at

your front porch so here is a reminder about how to keep your

items safe from porch pirates.

• Get Permission to Ship All Your Packages to Work.

• Ask a Friend or Neighbor to Receive Your Packages for You.

• Set Up a Live Recording Video Camera Aimed at Your Porch.

• Schedule packages to be delivered when you or someone you

trust will definitely be there to pick it up.

• Consider placing a planted pot or decorative piece on your

porch that could hide a delivery.

• Consider getting a lock box installed near your front yard

door so that the delivery driver can put your package in a

secure location.

• Use a secure Amazon locker.

For more information or to report a porch pirate theft, please call

the Police Department at 303-773-2525. GV

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

SAFETY BASICS

Certain things can increase

our risk of getting the virus

and we should avoid going

to places such as crowded

stores, parties, and being in

close contact with anyone

outside your household. Stay

virus-free by following the

simple steps to protect each

other:

1 Avoid in-person

gatherings.

2 Avoid unnecessary travel

and plan stay at home

activities.

3 Stay six feet apart

everywhere — indoors

and outdoors.

4 Stay home if around

someone who is ill or if

you have symptoms.

5 Wear a mask.

6 Wash hands often or use

hand sanitizer.

7 Avoid crowds by

ordering groceries and

gifts online.

8 Take extra care for those

at higher risk.

This reduces the chances of

recirculating the same air

and of spreading the virus.

Consider making a plan to

help everyone follow the

simple steps to protect each

other.

’TIS THE SEASON TO SPREAD

HOLIDAY SPIRIT WHILE

SOCIAL DISTANCING

Only socialize in-person with your own

household. Connect with your family and

friends virtually. When shopping, buying

online is a good way to avoid crowds when

holiday shopping. Be safe and share creative

ways to stay connected while celebrating

life together.

Other Fun Holiday Ideas

• Exchange traditional family recipes with

relatives. Make a new dish, take a

picture, and share your picture on email,

text, or on social media.

• Plan a no-steal or steal-friendly virtual

white elephant gift exchange party.

• Put up your favorite decorations and

share your pictures online.

• Have a virtual watch party to enjoy

parades, sporting events, and holiday

movies at home.

• Having a virtual dinner and share one

favorite recipe each with friends and

family.

• Have a virtual office or family ugly

sweater party and play a game like

holiday bingo.

• Ask family and friends to take part in

holiday charitable donations.

• Arrange a way to see each other virtually

while opening presents.

• Go for a walk in your neighborhood and

vote on your favorite decorations.

• Participate in a gratitude activity like

writing down what you are thankful for

and sharing with your friends and

family.

• Send heartfelt holiday greeting cards to

your family and friends.

• Create a photo memory book. GV

COLORADO DEPARTMENT OF

PUBLIC HEALTH & ENVIRONMENT

MOVES ARAPAHOE COUNTY

(GREENWOOD VILLAGE)

TO RED LEVEL DUE TO

RISING COVID CASES

Effective Friday, November 20, Adams, Arapahoe

and Douglas Counties were moved by the Colorado

Department of Public Health and Environment

(CDPHE) to the new “Level Red: Severe Risk”

restrictions, as are all other counties in the metro

area including Denver, Boulder, Jefferson, and

Broomfield Counties. The order updates Level Red

to indicate counties where there is severe risk of

COVID-19 spreading rapidly, while allowing some

businesses to remain open at very limited capacity.

Major restrictions include:

• Indoor dining at restaurants is closed.

• Socially-distanced outdoor seating is allowed, as

are take-out, delivery, and drive-thru.

• Last call for alcohol in a restaurant is 8 p.m., and

bars that do not serve food are closed.

• All retail, including Critical retail, is subject to

the 50% occupancy limit, and strongly

encouraged to offer more curbside, take-out and

delivery options in order to reduce in-person

services to the minimum necessary.

• Libraries and animal grooming were added to the

list of critical businesses

• Personal gatherings with anyone outside of a

single household are prohibited

• All Indoor Events are prohibited, except Houses

of Worship and Life Rites may operate at 25% of

the posted occupancy limit indoors not to exceed

50 people excluding staff, whichever is less, per

room

• Office-based businesses are limited to no more

than 10% capacity and should be maximizing

work from home for all activities that can be

done remotely

• Gyms are limited to 10% occupancy or 10 people

per room, whichever is fewer

For more information or to review capacity

restrictions at each level, visit: https://covid19

.colorado.gov/covid-19-dial.

COVID-19 DIAL REVISED

CDPHE released an updated public health order which updates Level

Red to indicate counties where there is severe risk of COVID-19

spreading rapidly, while allowing some businesses to remain open at

very limited capacity. A sixth level, Level Purple: Extreme Risk, for

counties where hospital capacity is at extreme risk of being overrun,

and most businesses and indoor services must be closed. The updated

dial levels went into effect on Friday, Nov. 20.

The new dial levels are:

Level Green – Protect Our Neighbors: for counties that are able to

locally contain surges. Most businesses are open with generous

capacity limits.

Level Blue – Caution: for counties with low transmission levels that

aren’t quite ready for Protect Our Neighbors. Capacity limits are more

permissive than yellow.

Level Yellow – Concern: the baseline level for counties with elevated

transmission levels but stable hospitalizations.

Level Orange – High Risk: for counties where numbers are going up

but not to the point where everything needs to be shut down. The

capacity limits are moderate.

Level Red – Severe Risk: for counties with high levels of

transmission, hospitalizations, and positivity rates. Most indoor

activities are prohibited or strictly limited, and outdoor activities are

encouraged as an alternative. The capacity limits are significant.

Level Purple – Extreme Risk: for counties where hospital capacity is

at extreme risk of being overrun. At this level, all businesses must

significantly curtail in person functions and people must stay at home

except for necessary activities.

RECREATION REIMBURSEMENT DEADLINE FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 2020

FOR ALL 2020 RECEIPTS

Wow, what a year! But some things are still the same, like the

Recreation Reimbursement submission deadline. We realize

that for some of you, things are extra hectic with revised

work schedules and children at home for school. Please take

some time out of your busy day to gather your 2020 activity

receipts to submit for reimbursement. We would hate for you

to miss out!

The deadline for submitting your 2020 recreation

reimbursement requests is January 15, 2020. They may be

dropped off in person by 5 p.m., postmarked by January 15

or emailed by 12 midnight. Please note there are no

exceptions to this deadline.

Good To Know:

• All activities paid for in 2020, including those taking

place in 2021, must be submitted as part of your 2020

reimbursement request. Exception: see annual

membership information below.

• Annual memberships (12 months paid in advance) at

qualifying recreation facilities that are paid in December

to take advantage of a membership sale for the following

calendar year must be applied to the following year (i.e. if

you pay in 2020 for all of 2021, that is applied to your

2021 reimbursement).

• To qualify for reimbursement an agency must be a public

recreation entity (parks and recreation district,

metropolitan district, municipal golf course) or a

nonprofit youth sports agency in the Denver Metro Area.

• 2020 golf receipts: staff realizes that there were a few

months when it was not possible to obtain the usual

receipts from golf courses. Under those circumstances, you

may submit credit card statements.

• Private entities such as Lifetime Fitness and for-profit

youth sports agencies are not reimbursable.

• All receipts must be itemized showing the name of the

organization, activity, date and the amount paid (see golf

exception above).

• Only the activity itself is reimbursable; fees for golf carts,

skate rentals, team jerseys, etc. are not reimbursable.

A form is included in the middle of this Newsletter for your

convenience. More detailed information can be found online

at www.greenwoodvillage.com/recreimbursement. Due to the

current COVID concerns, residents are encouraged to email

their forms and receipts to ptr@greenwoodvillage.com or

mail them to: City of Greenwood Village, Attn: Parks, Trails

and Recreation, 10001 East Costilla Avenue, Greenwood

GV RESTAURANT INNOVATIONS

FOR OUTDOOR DINING

Due to the movement of Greenwood Village/Arapahoe

County to the red level on the State’s COVID dial, indoor

dining is temporarily closed. To survive and keep their

doors open, restaurants all over the Village are

implementing innovative ways to serve their customers as

outdoor dining is allowed.

Please make a commitment to support the restaurants and

eateries in our community as many times a week as you

can. Even with the temporary closure of indoor dining, you

can still support them through outdoor dining, catering,

delivery, and takeout. Many restaurants are also preparing

take home dinner options for the holidays. GV
