THE MAYOR’S message

TOMMY DAVIS

PARK

I hope the spring

weather and the budding

flowers are brightening

your day. This month, I

want to share some

interesting facts about

another beautiful park.

Tommy Davis Park is a

walk-to park located at

9200 East Orchard

Road. The park consists

George Lantz

303-486-5741

of 9.29 acres built along

the west branch of

Goldsmith Gulch. After

being annexed in 1987,

the Huntington Acres HOA donated

the majority of the park’s land to the

Village, retaining title to the existing

pool, tennis court and parking rights

to half of the pool parking lot. The

Sundance Valley HOA donated the

land along the western edge of the

park. The Village completed the park

in 1989. The park was originally

named Huntington Acres Park before

being renamed in memory of Tommy

Davis, a Greenwood Village resident

and Chairman of the Parks, Trails and

Recreation Commission.

The park’s amenities include a

playground, volleyball court,

basketball court, small informal

baseball field and a pond. The park’s

pond has hosted the Village’s Annual

Fishing Derby for over 25 years. The

Village developed a park Master Plan

in 2007. The first phase included a

pond expansion which was completed

in 2008. In 2010, the Orchard Road

pedestrian trail undercrossing was

completed connecting Tommy Davis

Park to Orchard Hills Park. An 8-piece

exercise equipment circuit was updated

in 2013. The final Master Plan phase

was completed in 2020 when the

channel, bridges and connection to

Caley Avenue were completed.

KNOW THE SOUNDS OF THE LIGHTNING

DEVICES AT MAJOR VILLAGE PARKS

During the summer storm season, Village park users and visitors may be exposed to potential

dangers of a lightning storm while being outside. In efforts to provide a safer environment while

attending events at Village Greens Park, Curtis Park, Westlands Park, Silo Park, and Tommy

Davis Park, the Village has installed lightning prediction and warning systems to alert park users

of the potential for lightning before it strikes.

The lightning systems in designated Village parks are prediction systems not detector systems.

These systems measure the shift of the positive and negative ions in the atmosphere and in the

ground that could create an energy flow that may result in a lightning strike once a conductive

cloud to ground path is available. The lightning prediction and warning system senses and

evaluates these shifts and changes in the electrostatic field that precede the occurrence of an

actual lightning strike and activates an audible, as well as, visual warning alerting of the

dangerous conditions.

The systems are set to monitor a 2.5 mile radius from its location. When the conditions are ripe

for lightning at the parks or within the 2.5 mile radius, a continuous audible horn is activated for a period of 15 seconds alerting users of the

potential for lightning and activating yellow strobes on the roofs of the structures located within the parks. These strobes will stay activated

throughout the period of potential lightning activity and will shut off only after an all clear signal consisting of three five second audible horn

blasts. The systems are operational between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 p.m., seven days a week, through the spring and summer months.

For more information, please call Dustin Huff, Parks Manager, at 303-708-6155.

NEW RESIDENTIAL

TRASH AND

RECYCLING

PROVIDER

Greenwood Village has provided trash

and recycling services to single-family

residences since 1996. Republic

Services has been provider of this

service for many years, and their

contract with the Village expires at the

end of 2021. Village staff requested

bids from trash companies to continue

this service beginning in 2022, and

after an extensive review of the

proposals, the Village has selected

Waste Connections of Colorado to

continue this service beginning January

1, 2022. Residents will continue to

enjoy the same levels of service that are

currently provided by Republic,

including containers provided by the

company, every-other-week recycling,

and the ability to place an unlimited

number of additional bags out beside

the containers for collection.

Q: Why is the Village changing from

Republic Services?

A: Republic’s current contract expires

at the end of 2021. While choosing

a provider to continue this service,

the Village’s main goal was to

continue the service levels that

residents currently enjoy.

Unfortunately, Republic is unable

to continue providing the same

level of service moving forward.

Waste Connections, however, can

continue the current service levels

and currently provides a similar

service to the City of Lone Tree.

The Village also spoke with Lone

Tree and other communities in the

metro area that use Waste

Connections and heard high

remarks about their service. The

Village is confident that Waste

Connections can provide a high

level of service to Greenwood

Village residents.

The Village is thankful to Republic

Services for their many years of

excellent service to Greenwood

Village, and are looking forward to

continuing this service with our

new partner, Waste Connections.

Q: Will I receive new containers?

A: Yes, Waste Connections will be

providing all single-family

residences with one 95-gallon trash

container, and one 95-gallon

recycling container free of charge.

Residents may request one

additional 95-gallon recycling

container, free of charge, if one

container is not enough. Waste

Connections will be reaching out to

residents later this year to confirm

recycling container needs.

Remember that all containers need

to be screened from the road when

not placed at the curb.

Republic will be collecting all

Republic-branded containers at the

end of the year.

Q: Will my trash day change?

A: Republic Services currently collects

trash and recycling in Greenwood

Village Mondays through

Thursdays, starting on the west side

of town. Waste Connections will

continue to service the Village

Monday through Thursdays, and

the Village has requested that

current pick-up days are

maintained. If any changes are

made, they will be minor and

Waste Connections and the Village

will communicate the change to the

affected residents.

Q: Will recycling collection be the

same?

A: Yes, Waste Connections will

continue to be collected recycling

every-other-week. This will continue

to be single-stream recycling (no

need to sort items), and Waste

Connections will provide resources

on what items are recyclable.

DID YOU KNOW?

Greenwood Village offers a variety of

trash and recycling collection services.

In addition to the weekly household

trash and recycling service, residents

can contact the Village to dispose of

large bulky items, large branches,

appliances or other household

electronics, and household hazardous

waste such as yard chemicals. Please

TRAIL ETIQUETTE — MIND YOUR MANNERS

Just like dining in a fine

restaurant, there is proper

etiquette when using area

trails. Though multi-use

trail signs may vary in the

way they look, the rightof-way

is universal:

bicyclists yield to

everyone; pedestrians

yield to horses

(equestrians); equestrians

yield to no-one and

always have the right-ofway.

Pedestrians — of course it’s more fun to walk side-by-side to talk with your walking

buddies than to walk single file, but please be aware that taking up the whole trail

makes it difficult for bicyclists and equestrians to pass safely. Stay to the right and close

to your walking partner.

Equestrians — It is safest to ride single file, but as with pedestrians, many prefer to

ride side-by-side to talk with friends. Be aware that two horses riding take up a lot of

trail space, making it difficult for others to pass safely. Trails in the Village are multiuse,

so you will encounter bicyclists and pedestrians; it is the rider’s responsibility to

ensure that their horse in under control. Also keep in mind that many people are not

familiar with horses and do not understand that objects such as bikes and runners

coming up behind them can scare your horse. Be courteous and notify pedestrians

when passing.

Bicyclists — bicyclists yield to both pedestrians and horses. Be courteous to other

users, and keep right when possible. Verbally alert others when you are approaching to

pass; call out “on your left” or “on your right” as equestrians and pedestrians may not

hear you approaching. GV

HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED A HORSE JUMP?

Here’s why: horses are easily scared. In nature, horses are prey. Horses’ eyes are situated

on the sides of their heads which causes objects to appear to jump from one side of their

vision to the other. This can trigger the horse’s instinct to flee.

COVID-19 UPDATE

we’re all in this together!

PUBLIC HEALTH ORDERS

TRI-COUNTY MASK ORDER —

MASKS REQUIRED INDOORS ONLY

On April 5, the Tri-County Health Department (TCHD)

amended its face covering order in place for Adams,

Arapahoe and Douglas counties to remove the requirement

that face coverings be worn in outdoor public spaces. The

TCHD order will remain in place until June 30, 2021,

unless rescinded, amended, or extended. Increasing spread

of potentially more severe and contagious variant strains

and changes in individual behaviors are major sources of

uncertainty at this point in the pandemic.

The face covering order requires that individuals older than

10 years old must wear a face covering over their nose and

mouth when entering or within any public indoor space. In

addition, parents, custodians, and caregivers are strongly

encouraged to have their children between two and 10 years

old wear a face covering, with supervision.

This order is currently relevant to all parts of Adams,

Arapahoe, and Douglas counties that did not opt out of the

order. Face coverings should be worn regardless of COVID-

19 vaccination status.

In addition to wearing masks, the spread of the virus can be

reduced or prevented through social distancing, testing,

isolation if a person is sick, quarantine if a person has been

exposed, case investigation, contact tracing, and vaccination.

For more information visit www.tchd.org/covid.

GOVERNOR’S NEW ORDER

EFFECTIVE MAY 2

The Colorado statewide mask mandate has been

updated. Masks are no longer required in indoor

public spaces if 80% of people in attendance

have provided proof of COVID-19 vaccination or

by restaurant employees if 85% of staff are fully

vaccinated against COVID-9.

For more information or clarification,

please visit: tchd.org. or

covid19.colorado.gov/mask-guidance.

TCHD ADOPTS SIMPLIFIED VERSION

OF THE STATE COVID DIAL

The COVID-19 Dial issued by Governor Polis and the

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment

(CDPHE) expired, and counties across Colorado issued their

own guidance for their citizens. On April 8, 2021, the Tri-

County Health Department’s Board of Health (BOH)

authorized and directed the Executive Director of Tri-County

Health Department (TCHD) to issue a Public Health Order

for a simplified version of the Dial with the goal to continue

to control and/or slow the spread of COVID-19.

The TCHD Public Health Order (PHO) is in effect from

April 16 through May 15. Highlights of the Public Health

Order include:

• Phase 1: Moving Toward Full Re-Opening, April 16 -

May 15 (30 days): Counties will move to a new level on

the Dial, one Level less restrictive than the level indicated

by their metrics on April 15. For example, a county at

Level Yellow metrics on the current state Dial on April 15

will move to Level Blue on April 16 and remain there

until May 15.

• Phase 2: Observation Period, May 16 - August 16 (90

days): Counties will move to Level Clear, which has no

restrictions, subject to TCHD observation of hospital

admission rates in the County. In Level Clear, businesses

will be able to operate at 100 percent capacity with no

Mitigation Requirements, although face-covering

requirements may still apply.

To enhance personal safety and help reduce levels of

COVID-19 transmission across our communities, our

residents should continue to social distance; wear masks in

public indoor areas; avoid large gatherings or crowds,

PG. 10 GV NEWSLETTER | MAY 2021


GOVERNMENT

especially indoors; stay home while they are sick and get

tested for COVID-19 if they have symptoms; wash their

hands often; and get vaccinated as soon as possible.

Phase 1 took effect at 12:01 a.m. on April 16, 2021, and

expires at 11:59 p.m. on May 15, 2021. The Phase 2

observational period will continue from May 16 through

August 15 in order to evaluate the need for any subsequent

restrictions. During any time of restricted capacity, counties

may continue participating in the 5-Star program for

businesses.

For more information, please visit tchd.org.

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL

RECOMMENDATIONS

Because of the potential introduction and spread of new

variants of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and

differences in rates of disease and level of vaccination around

the world, CDC is providing the following guidance related

to international travel:

• Fully vaccinated people can travel internationally without

getting a COVID-19 test before travel unless it is required

by the international destination.

• Fully vaccinated people do not need to self-quarantine

after returning to the United States, unless required by a

state or local jurisdiction.

• Fully vaccinated people must still have a negative

COVID-19 test result before they board a flight to the

United States and get a COVID-19 test 3 to 5 days after

returning from international travel.

• Fully vaccinated people should continue to take COVID-

19 precautions while traveling internationally.

FEMA TO HELP PAY FUNERAL COSTS

FOR COVID-19-RELATED DEATHS

The Federal emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will

began providing financial assistance for funeral expenses

incurred after Jan. 20, 2020, for deaths related to COVID-19

to help ease some of the financial stress and

burden caused by the pandemic. The funeral

assistance call center is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

EDT, Monday through Friday. Applicants can

call 844-684-6333. There is no deadline to

apply for assistance since funding is not going to

run out.

Once that waiting period has been completed, provided

below are 14 things you can do safely:

Outdoor activities you can do without a mask

• Exercise outdoors alone or with members of your

household

• Attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated

family and friends

• Attend a small, outdoor gathering with fully vaccinated

and unvaccinated people

• Dine at an outdoor restaurant with friends from multiple

households

Outdoor activity with a mask

There’s only one outdoor activity listed on the CDC

guidelines that requires a mask.

• If you attend a “crowded, outdoor event, like a live

performance, parade, or sports event” you should be

masked even if you’re fully vaccinated.

Indoor Activities ALL Require a Mask

According to the CDC, the following indoor activities are all

considered low risk for fully vaccinated people but only if

you mask up properly.

Precautions should still be taken as transmission risk in these

settings is higher and likely increases with the number of

unvaccinated people present. Thus, fully vaccinated people

engaging in indoor social activities in public settings should

continue to wear a well-fitted mask.

1. Visit a barber or hair salon

2. Go to an uncrowded, indoor shopping center or museum

3. Ride public transport with limited occupancy

4. Go to an indoor movie theater

5. Attend a full-capacity worship service

THE LETUP EATERY

The Shops at Greenwood Village • 9696 East Arapahoe Road

Monday 7 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesday-Saturday 7 a.m.-9 p.m.,

Closed Sunday • 720-387-7815 • theletup.com

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

follows: to diminish or slow down; slacken; cease; stop or

to become less severe. Given the fact that the world news is

incredibly stimulating right now, don’t you think it would

be nice to “letup” from the

COVID chaos of 2020 and

move forward to bigger and

better things? This was the

vision of Stephen and Teri

Culler who opened The

LetUP Eatery in Greenwood

Village in April 2021. Their

desire is for their down-toearth

establishment to

provide a state of ease for

their patrons and lessen their burdens while enabling them

to take comfort during their dining experience.

Stephen and Teri moved to Colorado from Las Cruces,

New Mexico in 2009. Stephen has spent over a decade in

some of the best kitchens within the Denver area: Colt &

Gray, The Populist, The Wooden Table, and Lucky Pie

Denver among others. Stephen has been an Executive

Chef, Sous Chef, and responsible for hiring staff and

ordering and maintaining inventory supplies as well. Now,

Teri has put aside any other career aspirations she may have

had to help her husband with this incredible adventure.

When the couple chooses to dine out, Stephen is usually

craving a breakfast burrito and Teri’s indulgence is a juicy

cheeseburger. Quite often after partaking in such a meal,

they expressed their feeling of lethargy and desire to sleep

the afternoon away. Part of their inspiration for The LetUP

came from their active lifestyle and their desire to enjoy

their favorite foods without feeling sluggish and apathetic

afterwards.

Thus, they set out on a journey to make their favorite

foods in a healthier way using high-quality, locally sourced

ingredients with the best cooking practices available. The

LetUP purchases all their natural ingredients from many

small businesses around Colorado. Some of the wonderful

companies they support include Wisdom’s Natural Poultry,

Raquelita’s Tortillas, Colorado Berkshire Pork, Lasater

Grasslands Beef, Isabelle Farms, Kilt Farms, and Fresh Guys.

If you have not already guessed, their delectable breakfast

menu includes a wide selection of breakfast burritos as well

as a Breakfast Sammy and Overnight Steel Cut Oats. The

appetizing food selections on their current lunch and

dinner menu range from beginners, which includes fries,

rings, deviled eggs, and fried pickles, to burgers, wraps and

The Cullers selected Greenwood Village because of the great

of the locavore movement which supports locally grown or

produced foods. Thrilled to welcome you to their new

restaurant, they hope the friendliness and kindness they

provide will put their patrons at ease during their visit.

They are open for business on Monday 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.

They are closed on Sundays. Breakfast is served from 7 a.m.

meal and an enjoyable break from your routine.

GENERAL INTEREST

OUR NATURAL

environment

WATCH OUT FOR

BABY WILDLIFE

As spring progresses, the chance of encountering newborn

animals such as baby birds, rabbits and deer in backyards or

neighborhoods is very common. According to Colorado

Parks and Wildlife, it’s normal for animals to leave their

young alone while they go search for food. But encountering

newborn wildlife can be an awe-inspiring event and can

trigger emotions causing someone to want to “rescue” what

they think is an animal in distress.

If you encounter one of these wildlife babies who appear to

be unharmed but alone, just observe from a distance and

keep domestic animals and people away. Chances are quite

likely the mother will be back shortly. In many cases,

“rescuing baby wildlife by removing them from the wild is

unnecessary and reduces their chances of survival.

DEER

Newborn animals, like deer,

are often found without any

adult animals nearby, leading

people to believe that the

newborn has been abandoned.

That, however, is typically not

the case. If you find a fawn:

• Mothers normally leave

their babies to feed. They

often return in the late

afternoon or early dusk.

• If the baby looks cold, hungry, diseased, or confused,

or if dogs, other animals, or people threaten its safety,

call 9-1-1.

• Otherwise, leave the baby alone and leave the area.

The mother will not return if people or pets are present.

SQUIRRELS

A baby squirrel has the best chance of survival when it is

cared for by its mother.

Sometimes healthy young

squirrels found on the ground

are not orphans — they simply

need help being reunited with

their mothers. Often, mother

squirrels will “rescue” their

fallen or displaced healthy

babies by carrying them by

the scruff back to the nest.

RABBITS

Baby rabbits leave the nest

when they are three weeks old

and are about the size of a

chipmunk. If you find a

chipmunk-sized but fullyfurred

rabbit with eyes open,

ears erect, and the ability to

hop, they are meant to be on

their own. As small and helpless as they may look, they are

not an orphan and do not need your help.

RACCOONS

Raccoon mothers must

leave their babies

unattended for periods of

time while they travel

around to find food. In

mom raccoon’s absence,

the youngsters sometimes

get in trouble (e.g. fall

out of their nest tree) when they explore outside their nest.

Another reason the raccoon kits may be alone is their family

may have been displaced from their nest, and the mom may

have had to go off exploring for a new den site. And even

when she does find a new den, she can only carry one baby

at a time.

DISTEMPER IN RACCOONS REPORTED

Raccoons can acquire canine distemper, a viral disease more

likely to occur when raccoon populations are large or

concentrated. Wildlife biologists note that it seems to run in

cycles of 5-7 years. Not all raccoons get the disease and many

do survive these outbreaks. The disease does not affect

humans.

The disease is spread when animals have direct contact with

body fluids or droppings from an infected animal. Distemper

is always present in the environment, so the best prevention

for dogs is to make sure they are vaccinated. Contact your vet

to make sure your dog’s shots are current.

Symptoms of distemper may include discharge from the nose

and eyes, a rough coat of hair, emaciated appearance, and

unusual behavior such as disorientation or wandering

aimlessly. The animals’ symptoms become progressively

worse, and the disease is usually fatal.

Keep children and pets away from sick raccoons. As the

disease progresses, the animal may appear calm, but can

PG. 16 GV NEWSLETTER | MAY 2021


GENERAL INTEREST

become aggressive if approached too

closely.

To Discourage Raccoons:

• Remove attractants from your yard.

• Feed pets indoors. If you feed

outdoors, bring in feeding bowls right

after pets have eaten.

• Make sure garbage cans have secure

lids. Placing a solution of equal parts

of ammonia and water in your trash

will deter raccoons.

• If you have a compost pile with fruit

and vegetable scraps, make sure

compost is securely covered in bins

that raccoons cannot access.

• Chimneys should have chimney caps

on to prevent raccoons from accessing

the interior of your home through the

fireplace.

WILDLIFE AND RABIES

If you are assisting young wildlife, it is

IMPERATIVE that you protect yourself

and others from being bitten or

scratched. Rabies, a deadly virus, is

common in Colorado and possible

exposures to the virus (mammal bites and

scratches) MUST be taken very seriously

and handled properly. If you are bitten or

scratched by a wild mammal

IMMEDIATELY wash the wound

thoroughly for several minutes with soap

and running water. Then call a doctor for

further advice.

If you, or your dog or cat comes in

contact and is bitten or scratched by a

raccoon, skunk, bat, fox or coyote, please

contact Tri-County Health Department

at 303-220-9200 and the Greenwood

Village Code Enforcement/Animal

Control.

looking for him. They checked the

ARTS AND RECREATION

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
