VILLAGE GREENS PARK

One of Greenwood Village’s greatest amenities is our park

and trail system. Last month, I shared information about

Westlands Park. This month, I want to highlight Village

Greens Park, 9501 East Union Ave., and encourage you to

visit:

• In 1983, Village Greens Master Plan was completed

combining property from Greenwood Village, Cherry

Creek School District, and land leased from the Army

Corps of Engineers.

• Four baseball fields, four multi-use fields and two softball

fields were constructed in 2001-2002. These fields are

used by both Cherry Creek High School and the Village.

Our Parks and Recreation Department utilizes the fields

summer plans, Alex, a high school senior (and fifthgeneration

Colorado native), looked for ways to get involved.

He researched opportunities and was moved by Colorado

businesses ingenuity and initiative.

To recognize these businesses, Alex created a Website —

penthepandemiccolorado.com that collected and compiled

inspiring stories and photographs of businesses that helped

combat the impacts of COVID-19. These stories include

businesses providing assistance to medical professionals and

patients; managing the food supply chain; turning gin into

hand-sanitizer, and repurposing snorkel mask valves into

intermediate ventilators, etc. These stories demonstrate how

Colorado businesses transformed to help protect the people

of our State.

COVID-19 — VACCINE

DISTRIBUTION RAMPING UP

The good news is the number of infections and

hospitalizations continues to decrease. The State is currently

allocating our vaccine to seniors 70+ and healthcare workers.

The Governor says the state currently receives approximately

80,000 vaccines per week. This allocation is broken down by

regions with Tri-County Health Department (TCHD)

receiving approximately 18,000 doses per week. These doses

are spread across the registered vaccine providers in Adams,

Arapahoe and Douglas Counties. I know there have been

many frustrations with the current rollout. We are all hopeful

the number of vaccines will increase and all of us will be able

to obtain a vaccine in the next few

months. If you are interested in

viewing data on the vaccine

provided to Arapahoe County, you

may visit the TCHD Vaccination

Dashboard at tchd.org. We have

also included information on the

vaccine and COVID State hotline

on pages 12-13 and 15 of this

Newsletter. As information is

released, you can find the latest at

tchd.org or covid19.colorado.gov.

Even though vaccinations are underway, the State Health

Department and TCHD asks everyone to continue practicing

social distancing and wear your masks.

SUMMARY OF COVID SUPPORT

FOR OUR BUSINESSES

In conjunction with Arapahoe County, the City Council and

I are pleased we were able to help our local businesses with

CARES Act Grants. This funding helped small businesses

with business losses and adapting to public health orders such

as installing outdoor dining infrastructure. With our grant

money, the Village was able to award 561 individual grants to

256 businesses in the amount of $6,146,786.

We have been told the CARES money helped save some

businesses. We are pleased we were able to help. Our

businesses are critically important and we are thankful they

reside in our Village. Their continuing struggles are a daily

concern so we ask everyone to continue to support our

business community.

I wish you a happy and healthy February.

— George

ENSURING A SAFE

SNOW AND ICE REMOVAL IN

RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS

ICE ISN’T NICE!

It is winter and residents may experience ice issues in front of

their respective properties. The ice build-up occurs when

melted snow flows into gutters and onto sidewalks in shaded

areas that have a north-facing exposure.

Due to the freeze and thaw cycles experienced during winter

months, some areas may experience more severe icing

than others.

SAFETY FIRST

Ice can be a safety hazard for children and adults walking in

neighborhoods and can cause unwanted slip and fall

accidents, leading to some surprisingly serious injuries. As a

resident, you can even become a victim to falling on the ice

in your own driveway or on your sidewalk in front of your

property.

AVOID FALLING ON THE ICE

• Keep your

steps and

walkways free

of ice using

rock salt or

sand.

• Walk slowly

and cautiously

with your feet

pointing

outward. Take

short, flat

steps.

• Avoid wearing

high-heeled

shoes or boots

outside. Wear

flat shoes with

slip resistant

soles or rain/snow boots with some degree of traction.

• Remove your boots once you get inside. Snow and ice often

stick to the soles of the shoes and will melt almost

immediately as your shoes begin to warm up, resulting in a

slippery surface and the risk of a fall.

WHAT RESIDENTS CAN DO

• Keep curb-lines in residential areas free of excessive piles

of snow allowing for the efficient drainage of the melting

snow.

• Be aware of shady spots in front of your property caused

by large trees, shrubbery, parked cars, two story homes,

etc., which limit the amount of sun and contribute to

icing issues. Remove snow piles, compacted snow and

parked cars on north facing properties immediately after

snow fall. If possible, do not park on the street during

snowstorms.

• When removing snow from your sidewalk and/or

driveway, place the snow on your lawn and refrain from

shoveling or blowing the snow onto the curb or in the

gutter which can block water flow thus increasing the

potential of ice dam formations created during freeze thaw

cycles.

• Clear the snow the length of your property in the

curb/gutter line to keep it free flowing. Push the snow out

to the area where the concrete gutter meets the asphalt,

this extra effort greatly assists in preventing ice dam

formations

• Shovel the sidewalks on all sides of your property, the full

width of the sidewalk down to the pavement. After the

sidewalk is cleared, sprinkle sand to prevent falls.

WHAT GREENWOOD VILLAGE DOES

A “one in and one out” plowing operation in residential

neighborhoods is implemented. Plow trucks plow from the

center of the roadway out toward the edge of the roadway in

both directions. By doing this, snow is equally distributed

on each side of the roadway leaving a clear path of travel for

both incoming and outgoing traffic. This snow removal

GOVERNMENT

SNOW REMOVAL ASSISTANCE FOR SENIORS

Seniors, 60+ or the disabled can call Volunteers of America,

Colorado Branch, to request assistance as part of their Snow

Buddies program. Call 720-264-3379 or email

info@voacolorado.org.

method allows for the surface to dry at a quicker rate and

for the melting snow to flow toward the curb/gutter on both

sides of the street. Plowing curb to curb in residential areas

is not performed to avoid covering sidewalks and blocking

driveways. Snow cannot be piled in the center of the

roadway because thaw/freeze conditions will cause ice on the

roadway.

IT’S THE LAW!

The law in Greenwood Village requires all residents to

remove snow and ice from their sidewalks within 48-hours.

This requirement also includes removal of snow and ice

from sidewalks in the front and side of a residence (corner

lots). This requirement does not extend to walkways

leading from the sidewalk to the residence nor to sidewalks

or trails abutting the rear property of a residence. Clearing

snow around mailboxes is also the responsibility of the

occupant.

NEED SOME HELP?

Are you a resident of Greenwood Village or know of a senior

or a person with a disability who may have a hard time

shoveling snow for any reason? Ask your neighbors to lend a

hand to ensure your entire neighborhood is safe and

accessible. Local Boy Scout troops and youth in the

neighborhood are great resources to assist with residential

snow removal. Don’t forget to arrange for someone to shovel

your snow while you are on vacation or away from your

home for a long period of time during winter storms.

PUBLIC INPUT MEETING

CHENANGO PARK IMPROVEMENTS

You are invited to a public input meeting to review the

proposed improvements to Chenango Park. The meeting will

be held on Wednesday, March 17 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at

Chenango Park near 9069 E. Chenango Avenue, Greenwood

Village.

Chenango Park is located between Chenango Avenue and

Campus Drive, west of Yosemite Street, and provides an

important connection between the Cherry Creek High

School and the neighborhoods and commercial area to the

south. The proposed project aims to improve trail

accessibility and user functionality as well as the overall

aesthetics of the park.

DAYTON WELL

IMPROVEMENTS

A virtual public meeting will be held on February 24,

2021, at 6 p.m. to provide information regarding the

improvements to the City’s Dayton Well. The meeting

will be available to attend online via Microsoft Teams

or by conference call-in (Phone: 720-617-1327

Conference ID: 953 560 359#). Starting February 17,

please see the City’s Village Voices website

greenwoodvillagevoices.com for the Microsoft Teams

meeting link and other project information.

The Dayton Well is located on the west side of South

Dayton Street between East Dorado Avenue and

Powers Drive. The well provides irrigation water to

Silo Park and landscaping along Dayton Street. The

well itself was rehabilitated by the Village in 2003.

However, the adjacent tanks, pumps, and enclosures

have not been updated since their construction in

1986. The current pumps and underground enclosure

are in poor condition and pose safety risks due to the

confined underground space. The buried water storage

tanks also require maintenance to ensure long-term

storage capability.

A special use permit (SUP) for the project was approved by

City Council in 2005 to construct an aboveground, 12’ x 18’

well pump house to replace the current underground

enclosure, shed, and pumping infrastructure. This project

will adhere to the SUP plan requirements for building

dimensions, finishes, and additional landscape screening.

For more information or questions, please call Josh Morin,

Parks Project Manager, at 303-708-6113 or email

jmorin@greenwoodvillage.com. GV

DID YOU KNOW?

The Dayton Well originally served the Orchard Hills Water District, beginning in 1986. The well and well site was transferred to Greenwood

Village in 2003 and currently provides irrigation water for the Village. The well extends to a depth of nearly 1500 feet into the Dawson,

Denver, and Arapahoe Aquifers. Water is pumped from the aquifers to two, 25,000 gallon underground steel storage tanks and then

distributed to Silo Park and other landscaping using the City’s irrigation pump and pipe infrastructure.

COLORADO UNVEILS DIAL 2.0,

MOVES ARAPAHOE COUNTY

(GREENWOOD VILLAGE)

TO LEVEL YELLOW

On Friday, February 5, 2021, the State moved Arapahoe

County and all its jurisdictions to Level Yellow on the

COVID dial dashboard. The dial is a tool that allows

Colorado to balance the ongoing need to contain the

COVID-19 virus with the need for localized guidance during

the pandemic. This decision will further reopen the County’s

economy by allowing many area businesses to expand their

capacities. All County businesses will be able to operate at

Level Yellow restrictions until the State has vaccinated 70%

of the 70-and-older population, which is expected to be

completed by the end of February. Once the County has

cleared that threshold, and provided that the County’s

COVID rates remain steady or drop, Five-Star Recovery

Partners will be able to shift to Level Blue restrictions.

Given the level of vaccinations occurring and decreasing

COVID-19 rates, the range of incidence metrics in Dial 2.0

better reflect a balance between disease suppression and

economic activity. Additionally, instead of looking at the

numbers over a 14-day period, Dial 2.0 will consider metrics

within a 7-day period — making the dial more responsive

and flexible.

The new metrics for Dial 2.0 are as follows:

• Counties in Level Green must now have no more than 15

COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in one week OR a

comparable number cases in counties with under 20,000

people.

• Counties in Level Blue must now have between 15 and

100 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in one week.

• Counties in Level Yellow must now have between 100

and 300 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in one

week. The rate of positive tests must be no more than

7.5%.

• Counties in Level Orange must now have between 300

and 500 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in one

week. The rate of positive tests must be no more than

10%.

• Counties in Level Red will now have more than 501

COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people in one week. At this

level, hospital system capacity is constrained, and state

assistance is requested for patient transport or staff

augmentation.

• In counties at Level Purple, statewide hospital capacity

risks being breached and crisis standards of care are

approaching.

BOBCAT SIGHTINGS

IN GREENWOOD

VILLAGE

The Police Department has received

reports of recent sightings of a bobcat

in Greenwood Village. According to

the Colorado Division of Wildlife,

bobcats do not pose a serious threat to

people. However, they can harm small

pets and livestock.

Bobcats are about twice the size of a

typical house cat and are similar in size

to a lynx. Both types of wild felines are

found in Colorado. Sightings in

Colorado are rare as the mostly

solitary animals tend to shy away from

others. Their nocturnal nature also

keeps them well hidden.

The following tips are provided to

protect your yard and pets from

bobcats:

• Trim back excess vegetation that

might otherwise provide cover

• Do not feed birds or other wildlife,

which might attract bobcats

• Do not feed the bobcats

• Do not leave pet food or water

outdoors

• Vaccinate your pets

• Keep pets indoors or in secure,

protective cages or pens

• Haze as you would a coyote

IF A BOBCAT APPROACHES

YOU BE AS BIG, MEAN,

AND LOUD AS POSSIBLE

• Wave your arms and throw objects

at the bobcat

• Shout in a deep, loud and

authoritative voice

• DO NOT RUN or turn your back

on the bobcat

• Face the bobcat and back away

slowly

“Meditation” is defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as

follows: to engage in mental exercise (such as concentration on

one’s breathing or repetition of a mantra) for the purpose of

reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness. Given the

events that took place in the year 2020, don’t you think we

could all use a deeper understanding of ourselves? If you could

use a mental renewal in the year 2021, you might want to

head over to Cosmic Tea Holistic Shop in Greenwood Village.

Cosmic Tea is a metaphysical service and supply store where

one may go to examine the fundamental nature of reality

including relationships between mind and matter. In the act

of meditation, one can either “ground” or electrically connect

themselves to the sky and universe or to the earth and the

ground. Owner and psychic, Elizabeth Marie Filkin, tends to

“ground” herself with the sky and universe rather than the

earth while she is meditating. The slang term “spilling the

tea” means gossip or personal information belonging to

someone else. Merging these two pieces of information,

“cosmic” and “tea,” is how she derived the name for the new

business she established in Greenwood Village in June 2020.

Village as Elizabeth felt that the south metro Denver area

needed more diversity and availability of holistic services in

the area. She states, “I wanted a place where everyone feels

like they belong; skin color doesn’t matter. I want my

customers to feel a sense of empowerment, love, and

understanding.” She hosts an incredibly talented staff that

specializes in specific areas of healing.

Elizabeth, the House Seer, specializes in foreseeing the future

through supernatural insight. Beverly, a Native American

woman, is available for meditation sessions. Celeste, the

Womb Healer, offers help to women with pregnancy and

miscarriage. She offers a Yoni steam to help cleanse and

strengthen a women’s reproductive system. Charmaine, the

Body Talk Healer, helps you discover the emotional “cords”

that are not suited for you anymore.

Courtney, the Energy and Body Talk Healer, practices

intuitive healing and takes clients through guided

visualizations. Taylor, the House Psychic, is passionate about

helping others heal, grow and learn through spirit. Maricela,

the Angel Light Worker, is certified in Reiki, angel oracle

cards and angelic healing. Morgan, the Love Reader, is the

“backbone” of the business who helps the shop and the staff

to run smoothly.

In addition to the metaphysical services they provide to their

clientele, they sell holistic, homemade products as well. They

sell a Guatemalan cacao called the “heart” chocolate, a variety

of teas to help with stillness and resting easy and a woman

from India provides a wonderful salt bath. Cosmic Tea also

provides holistic sprays, crystals, tinctures, candles and sage.

They have a selection of body oils such as the love healing

and clearing, uncrossing, Venus, lover’s, eye opener, and

dragon’s blood.

For more information about Cosmic Tea, please visit

cosmicteaholisticshop.com or contact them by telephone at

720-502-7732. To schedule an appointment, you may

contact them via telephone. If you mention this article while

setting up your first session, you will get a Holistic Flag Bag

upon your arrival. They are open for business Tuesday

through Friday 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturday and

Sunday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. As they find it important

to honor their shop, it is closed on Monday for a day of

healing.

You will find this unique establishment at 8775 East Orchard

Road, Suite #821, nestled within The Orchard Plaza

shopping center, near the intersection of East Orchard Road

and South Yosemite Street. Take time for yourself with a

mental “get-away” experience and a healthy break from your

routine. Cosmic Tea Holistic Shop anticipates your arrival

where mental support and energy awaits you! GV

WITH GAIL MENCINI

Mencini’s crisp, concise writing style works nicely. …

all of Mencini’s characters feel authentic. The author

writes tension and drama beautifully, delivering

unexpected twists and revelations, not only about

Francesca, but also about what Will and Sophie hide

in their hearts. The story’s surprising, complex, and

deeply satisfying ending answers many questions …

A mix of history, mystery, and romance, It

Happened in Tuscany is sure to please readers of all

these genres, plus those who simply like a wellcrafted
