INCREASING CRIME AND

PENDING LEGISLATION

Recently, our Chief of Police brought to the

City Council and my attention a significant

increase in crime. The Chief and every law

enforcement agency in Arapahoe and Douglas

County correlated this increase to jail

restrictions put in place to reduce the spread of

COVID-19 in the jails. Since the restrictions

were imposed, Greenwood Village has seen:

• 96% Increase in Robberies

• 23% Increase in Thefts

• 34% Increase in Burglaries

• 157% Increase in Auto Thefts

The City Council and I recently sent letters to

greenwoodvillage.com

303-486-5741 our state legislative representatives expressing

concerns over two bills currently under

consideration. The first, Senate Bill 21-62, will make

permanent the temporary COVID-19 jail restrictions by

prohibiting custodial arrest for crimes listed above as well as

for kidnapping, assault with serious injury, and sexual

assault.

Our Chief of Police Dustin Varney, who has 30 years of law

enforcement training and experience, has stated, “If Senate

Bill SB21-062 passes, there is a strong possibility that law

enforcement will have significant issues preventing or

reducing the rise in crime that we are seeing metro wide,

putting the future of public safety in question.” Law

Enforcement agencies throughout the Denver Metro area

have not only seen similar increases in crime since the jail

restrictions were put in place but have also seen subjects’

actions being more egregious as it became known they would

not face arrest. Along with the City Council’s letter, Chief

Varney and every law enforcement agency in Arapahoe and

Douglas County sent a letter opposing the bill. This letter

accompanied the letters from Police Chiefs and Sheriffs

across the state.

The second bill of concern, Senate Bill 21-182, limits school

disciplinary options. This bill will prohibit schools from

contacting the police for harassment, theft, menacing, assault,

or possession of weapons, drugs or alcohol on school grounds

or at school activities. If the police are called by a parent of a

student who was victimized by another student on school

grounds or at a school activity the police will be unable to act

unless the student was severely injured or sexually assaulted.

The intent of the bill is to keep students from entering the

criminal justice system, but removing consequences for

criminal behavior in the school environment can lead to an

unsafe learning environment for the students, staff, and

community.

State Legislative Representatives, their contact information is:

MARCH 2021 BLIZZARD

During winter storms I am always pleased and proud to

return to the Village’s boundary where I know the streets will

be clear. The recent blizzard was no exception. City Council

and I would like to extend our appreciation to the

departments and employees of Public Works; Parks, Trails and

Recreation; Police; and Community Development for their

efficient, professional, and quality response to the blizzard.

You may be unaware how much planning and preparation go

into a big snow event. In the days ahead of a storm planning

meetings are held, hotel rooms are reserved for the street and

trail crews, and food purchased so it may be prepared and

crews fed at our Maintenance Facility. The crews inspect and

repair the equipment to be utilized during a storm. Our staff

is outfitted with cold-weather personal protective equipment,

including snowsuits, jackets, snow boots, snow goggles,

insulated gloves, hand warmers, hearing protection, and twoway

radios and cell phones.

As the event draws near, staff is mobilized and the snow

removal equipment is loaded with sand or other material.

SPRING ILLUMINATION

The Parks, Trails, and Recreation Department has a special

evening for you and your family! Registration is now open for

the Spring Illumination Event at Carson Park. This event was

originally planned for December. However, due to COVID-19

restrictions the event was delayed and re-engineered as a Spring

event. Please join us as we illuminate Carson Park while you

enjoy a magical storybook stroll. Register at

greenwoodvillage.com/specialevents and choose your time

slot on April 29 through May 1, 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. For

more information, please call Parks, Trails, and Recreation

at 303-486-5773 or email ptr@greenwoodvillage.com.

AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN ACT

In March, Congress passed the COVID-19 Stimulus

Package, also known as the American Rescue Plan Act. This

package will provide relief to state, county and local

governments. It is expected federal aid of nearly $130.2

billion will be distributed across the country based on

population. Although we do not have confirmation, we

anticipate Greenwood Village will receive approximately

$3.3 million in relief funds. At this time, the guidelines,

regulations and restrictions along with the exact funding

have not been finalized. As these elements are completed,

the City Council will determine how to use these funds. I

will keep you updated.

Hope you enjoy a wonderful Spring!

BICYCLE SAFETY

AVOID A COSTLY MISTAKE

Before you take to the road with your

bicycle, it’s imperative to know and

practice all the fundamentals of riding a

bicycle. Did you know bicyclists are

subject to the same rules, laws and

regulations as motor vehicles? Ignoring

rules of the road that regulate passing,

riding abreast, use of hand signals, stop

signs, and other etiquette will determine

your fate on the roadway. If all else fails,

always adhere to the lug nut rule: he who

has the most lug nuts wins. In other

words, a car will always win over a

bicycle. So ride carefully and cautiously

to avoid a costly mistake and a crash

course in bicycling.

• Always ride on the RIGHT.

Remember to “go with the traffic

flow.” Never ride against traffic. Cars

will not be expecting to find a biker

when they round a corner or go over a

hill.

• Ride single file. When passing other

bikers or pedestrians, let them know

your position by shouting something

like, “On your left!”

• When riding two abreast, do not

impede the movement of traffic. If you

are on a road with lanes, you must ride

within a single lane.

• Always check behind you when

changing lanes.

• Watch out for dangerous things on the

roadways or on trails. Road litter,

puddles of water, loose gravel, and

storm gates can cause you to lose

BICYCLISTS MUST OBEY AT ALL

TRAFFIC CONTROL DEVICES

JUST LIKE MOTOR VEHICLES.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF THE TRAFFIC

LIGHT IS RED, THEY MUST OBEY

THE TRAFFIC LAW AND STOP.

control of your bicycle.

• Stop at all stop signs and traffic lights.

Be extra careful at crossroads. Walk

your bicycle across busy intersections.

• Always signal before making a left or

right turn. To make a left turn, look

behind you, hold your left arm straight

out and proceed carefully. For a right

turn, hold your left arm out and up in

an “L” shape.

• Keep control of your bike. Do not

swerve or make sudden turns. Drivers

may not be able to react fast enough to

avoid colliding with you.

• Ride at least three feet away from

parked cars. Someone could open his or

her door unexpectedly.

• Listen for cars approaching from the

side or behind you.

• Do not follow cars too closely (you may

be in their blind spot).

• Know your road signs and obey them.

A smart bicyclist follows the rules of the

road.

• Always be prepared to stop. Keep your

hands on or close to the brakes.

• Do not forget to wear your helmet!

And do not wear headphones; you will

not be able to hear what is going on

around you.

For more information on driver,

pedestrian, bicyclist, and motorcycle safety,

please call the Greenwood Village Police

Department at 303-773-2525. GV

COVID-19 UPDATE

we’re all in this together!

ARAPAHOE COUNTY/

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

MOVES TO LESS-RESTRICTIVE

LEVEL BLUE ON THE

STATE’S COVID-19 DIAL

On Sunday, March 14, 2021, Arapahoe County/Greenwood

Village was moved to Level Blue on the State’s COVID-19

Dial after meeting the required public health metrics. This

meant that all County/Greenwood Village businesses can

operate at higher capacities, and/or with fewer restrictions, on

the state’s dashboard dial. The move included increased levels

of patrons at restaurants; gyms; group sports and camps; and

outdoor events and entertainment; restaurants and indoor

and outdoor events, including religious services.

STATE UPDATES

PUBLIC HEALTH ORDER

Effective March 7, Colorado Department of Public Health

and Environment (CDPHE) released an amended public

health order that include:

• A new disease incidence metric buffer allows counties to

exceed their Dial level’s disease incidence metric and

remain in that level as long as they do not exceed the

minimum of the next more restrictive Dial level’s

incidence rate by more than 15% for five consecutive

days. This creates more predictability with Dial moves and

prevents counties moving back and forth unnecessarily by

ensuring a consistent trend is present first.

• Restaurants and seated indoor events (including at

casinos) in Level Blue may expand capacity to 225 people

without using the distancing space calculator.

• Restaurants and seated indoor events (including at

casinos) in Level Yellow may expand capacity to 150

people without using the distancing space calculator.

• Seated indoor events in Level Red may calculate

distancing without using the distancing space calculator.

• Last call to order alcohol at restaurants has been expanded

from levels Blue to Red:

– Level Blue: 2 a.m.

– Level Yellow: 1 a.m.

– Level Orange: 12 a.m.

– Level Red: 10 p.m.

• Masks may be removed in a school classroom setting for

the purpose of playing a musical instrument that cannot

otherwise be played while wearing a mask, but students

must continue to physically distance. Performers with

masks can be 12 feet away and without masks 25 feet —

and instrument players with bell covers could be 12 feet

apart and without 25.

• Performers at events who are wearing masks may be a

minimum of 12 feet away from spectators. Performers not

wearing masks must remain a minimum of 25 feet away.

• 5 Star-certified businesses in Level Blue may expand

capacity limits by 50 people above the Level Blue caps.

The Colorado COVID-19 dial is a tool that allows Colorado

to balance the urgent need to contain the virus with the need

for localized guidance during the pandemic. Learn more

COLORADO’S COVID-19

DIAL 3.0 RELEASED

As more Coloradans are eligible to get vaccinated and choose

to do so, the Colorado Department of Public Health and

Environment (CDPHE) released the latest update to the

State’s COVID1-9 Dial framework: Dial 3.0 The updated

dial public health order was effective on March 24, 2021 and

will remain in effect until mid-April, at which point the state

plans to retire the dial and implement a new public health

order that gives greater control over capacity restrictions to

local public health agencies.

The dial framework, originally implemented on September

15, 2020, standardizes the levels of openness or restrictions

on a county level, based on the metrics of disease

transmission, the level of local testing, and hospitalizations.

It is a tool that allows Colorado to tailor its response on a

county level, recognizing that conditions will vary locally.

Dial 3.0 makes it easier for counties to move into Level

Green: Protect Our Neighbors, the least restrictive level on

the dial. It also removes many of the restrictions that

currently apply at that level. Additionally, several restrictions

in Level Blue are loosened in Dial 3.0.

The main changes in the Dial 3.0:

• The metrics for Level Green: Protect Our Neighbors have

changed. These changes make it easier for counties to

achieve Protect Our Neighbors status. Now, counties

qualify for Protect Our Neighbors if they have up to 35

COVID-19 cases per 100,000 people — up from 15

cases.

• There is no longer a certification process for Level Green:

Protect Our Neighbors. Counties will be moved into

Level Green once they maintain the appropriate metrics

for at least one week.

• Most restrictions in Level Green: Protect Our Neighbors

are now removed. Bars and indoor events must still adhere

to a 50% capacity limit or a 500-person cap, whichever is

fewer.

• The metrics range for Level Blue is now 36-100 COVID-

19 cases per 100,000 people.

• Bars can now open under Level Blue. The capacity limit is

25% capacity or 75 people, whichever is fewer.

• Outdoor events in Levels Green and Blue no longer have

state-level capacity restrictions under the dial. Counties

may choose to implement capacity restrictions on outdoor

events at the local level.

• Retail, offices, and non-critical manufacturing in Level

Blue may now open to 75% capacity, up from 50%.

• There is no longer a state limit on personal gathering

sizes. The state will follow CDC’s guidance on personal

gatherings. The CDC still strongly recommends avoiding

larger gatherings and crowds to prevent the spread of

COVID-19.

• 5 Star restaurants and gyms in Levels Blue and Yellow may

operate at 100% capacity with 6 feet of distance between

parties as a way to provide businesses with increased

flexibility, while still limiting indoor mass gatherings. The

state expects that maintaining a 6 foot distancing

requirement will be a limiting factor for most indoor

spaces.

• 5 Star certified seated and unseated indoor events may

operate at 50% capacity with a 500-person limit in Level

Blue. 5 Star seated indoor events in Level Yellow may

operate at 50% capacity with a 225 person limit and

unseated indoor events in Level Yellow may operate at

50% capacity with a 175 person limit.

SKY NAILS AND SPA

9555 East Arapahoe Road, Suite #7 • 303-649-2272

Monday 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Wednesday-Friday 9 a.m.-7 p.m.,

Saturday 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Closed Tuesday

Everyone deserves to pamper themselves from time to time

especially after the events, or lack thereof, over the past

year. There is no better place to do that than Sky Nails &

Spa in the Arapahoe Center shops near the northeast

corner of Arapahoe Road and Boston Street. If you are

looking for a friendly atmosphere where you can have your

nails cared for, look no further than this quaint nail salon.

Sky Nails & Spa opened in Greenwood Village on January

1, 2015, and has been serving the community for over six

years. They chose Greenwood Village for their business

location because it is a major point of connection in the

area and it allows the business to be reachable for many

who live, work or travel through the community. With a

location just off I-25, it is convenient for more than just

locals.

Sky Nails & Spa offers a service that allows customers to

express themselves freely both inside and outside the salon

setting. They offer acrylic nails, dipping powder, waxing,

gel nails, manicures, and pedicures. The experts at Sky

Nails & Spa pay attention to new trends while maintaining

a high standard of quality in a welcoming environment.

In these days where everyone is focused on constant hand

washing and what we are touching, now is the perfect time

to give your hands a little attention. With all the added

attention given to our hands, why not make yours stand

out a little, try something new or combine your signature

style with your nails. The constant hand washing, and

sanitizing can also dry out and damage your hands. Giving

them a little extra attention can help to reduce that damage

and discomfort.

The benefits of treating yourself with a trip to Sky Nails &

Spa aren’t limited to just making your nails look better

either. Proper nail care can help with nail health and may

even reduce stress. A little change can have a great impact

and taking a little time for self-care can help make these

uncertain times a little easier. A simple manicure or new

color may be a small change, but it could also be just the

thing to brighten your day. The experts at Sky Nails & Spa

are taking all the necessary safety precautions for the

welfare of their staff and clients.

Sky Nails & Spa is located at 9555 East Arapahoe Road,

Suite #7 and is open Monday 9 a.m. through 7 p.m.,

closed Tuesday, and opens again Wednesday through

Friday 9 a.m. through 7 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. through

6 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. through 5 p.m. Sky Nails &

Spa can be found on Facebook and Instagram at

SkyNailsandSpa or can be contacted by phone at

303-649-2272. Treat yourself today! GV

ARTS AND RECREATION

CALLING GREENWOOD VILLAGE ARTISTS FOR STUDIO TOUR

In 2014, a group of artists located in rural Greenwood

Village joined forces to begin what is now known as the

Women of Steele Studio Tour. These women had been

surprised to learn that between them they had four active art

studios within a few hundred yards of each other. The

circumstances were ideal for an event that would celebrate

these artists’ work and workspaces. Thus began their annual

tradition of opening their art studios to the public for a day.

Now in its sixth year, the studio tour has become a muchanticipated

event with golf cart rides on dirt roads and guest

artists. Today that tradition has grown to encompass more

neighborhoods and more artists.

The City of Greenwood Village’s Cultural Arts Program is

seeking artists residing in Greenwood Village to participate

in the Greenwood Village Studio Tour on Saturday and

Sunday, September 11 and 12, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Accepted

artists will have the choice of opening their home/studio to

the public as part of the tour or to show their work at “Art

on the Green,” an art festival setting that will take place in

Curtis Park on the same dates.

Interested artists must meet the following criteria. Artwork

must be original and completed within the last five years.

Work done by a production studio or mass-produced items

are not acceptable. All work must be designed and executed

by the accepted artist. All work exhibited must be of the

quality, category, and body of work of that has been

presented. Artwork produced with commercially acquired

casts, molds, prefabricated forms, studio volume production

or other commercial methods will not be permitted.

Accepted media categories include: ceramics, digital art,

drawing, fiber, glass, jewelry, metal, mixed media, painting,

photography, printmaking, sculpture and wood.

If you are interested in participating in the studio tour or the

Art on the Green art fair, please contact Chris Stevens at

303-708-6110 or cstevens@greenwoodvillage.com.

Deadline to reserve your space is Friday, May 21.
