CURTIS CENTER FOR THE

ARTS AND CURTIS PARK

This month, I would like to highlight Curtis

Park and the Curtis Center for the Arts located at

2349 East Orchard Road in Greenwood Village.

In 1901, Mary J. Curtis, an area

resident, donated land to the

Littleton School District for a oneroom

schoolhouse to serve three

families with 10 children.

Originally, the school was known as

the Mary J. Curtis School, but later

the name was shortened to Curtis

School. The school was located at

the corner of Orchard and

University with additional land to the west for

a parking lot and park.

In 1914, the original clapboard building was

replaced with a red brick school for children

from first through eighth grades. The new

building, with a cupola and big bell, had a basement, which

was divided into a long room and coal furnace room. There

was no electricity, running water, or indoor plumbing.

Windows and gasoline lanterns provided the school’s lighting.

The janitor brought drinking water from home every day in

a 10-gallon jar so the children could drink from their own tin

cups. In 1927, electricity was installed.

In 1931, the Curtis School aesthetics changed. Two

additional classrooms were completed in 1932. The addition

included a garden-level classroom with large windows and a

classroom above it, on the same level as the original

classroom. Additionally, an eight-to-nine-hundred-foot

artesian well was drilled in the southeast corner of the school

yard. The well water became popular in the community, with

people frequently stopping by the school for water. In 1935,

indoor plumbing was installed. In the 1950’s, a small kitchen

was installed in the school’s basement to provide a hot lunch

program. Prior to that time, children brought lunch from

home.

School life for children of Curtis School included a variety of

activities and programs. Boys and girls enjoyed many

activities like dances, baseball, marbles, games of Fox and

Geese, art lessons, field trips searching for artifacts, Kite Day,

picnics and the celebration of May Day.

In 1967, the Littleton School District initiated a plan to close

Curtis School. Community meetings were held inviting

parents to participate and voice their concerns about the

future of the little red school house. One of the main reasons

(according to the parents) why the Curtis School was closed

was because the school did not have a gymnasium. The

parents told school officials they liked having their children

play outdoors in the fresh air, but the school was closed.

The Curtis School continued to serve as a community center

after the school closed. The first community group to meet

regularly at Curtis School was Grandview Grange #151. Boys

and Girls 4-H used Curtis School for meetings. Vacation

bible school and church services were also held at the school.

Curtis School also served as the Town Hall for Greenwood

Village, where City Council meetings and traffic court were

held after school hours.

In 1971-1972, the Village took over the lease on the parking

lot and park from the South Suburban Parks and Recreation

District, and as a result, the Village became responsible for

Curtis Park which was still owned by the Littleton School

District. When the Green Oaks subdivision was

approved in 1973, the Village was deeded property on

the Park’s west edge which was developed into a soccer

field.

In 1985, the Littleton School District sold pieces of the

original property to the Mission Hills Baptist Church

and the Village. The property where the Curtis School

resided was sold to the church. When the church’s

expansion plans necessitated the school be demolished

or moved, citizens and Village officials worked together

to preserve the building. In 1988, the building was

moved and for the next three years, the school

underwent renovation to preserve its heritage. In 1991,

Curtis School was dedicated as the Greenwood Village

Arts and Humanities Center before becoming the

Curtis Center for the Arts in 2016. In 2018, restrooms

were added to the upper level.

The Curtis Center for the Arts is now home to many unique

and exciting art exhibits, lectures, cultural events, concerts,

adult art programs and activities for seniors and youth.

Curtis serves as the focal point in the Village’s commitment

to the arts. Many exhibits are offered including Youth Art

Month, the Greenwood and Beyond Photography Show, and

the All-Colorado Art Show. To learn more, visit

MEET THE VILLAGE’S

ARBORISTS

The Village’s Arborists are part of the Parks, Trails, and

Recreation Department’s Open Space and Forestry

group. The crew includes Kurt Nielsen (who recently

celebrated his 40th work anniversary with the Village),

Josh Harlan, Jacob Hammer and Greg Knox. Our four

Arborists are responsible for approximately 12,000 Trees

in the Village. In addition, the Village’s staff has

responsibility for our section of the High Line Canal

which includes another 2,600 trees over 6” in diameter

and at least that many under 6” in diameter. The work

of our Arborists include planting, fertilizing, pruning,

and removing trees. All three Arborists are skilled in

rope and saddle techniques to climb trees and are

proficient in operating the 75-foot aerial lift truck. They

have climbed trees from 12 feet to 100-feet. Tree work is a yearround

job when they are not helping on the snow removal crew.

The metro area’s semi-arid climate makes it difficult to maintain

trees. To maintain your trees, prune them regularly (3-5 years),

give them water in the winter when, for extended periods, there

is no snow on the ground and frequently examine your trees,

identifying little issues before they become big problems. For

more information or resources on how to take care of your trees

year-round, visit the Colorado Tree Coalition at

coloradotrees.org.

FOURTH OF JULY

CELEBRATION

Fireworks are a traditional part of America’s July 4th

Independence Day celebration. For many July 4th is not

complete without sparklers and fireworks. As we celebrate,

the Greenwood Village Police Department would like to

remind residents the possession and use of fireworks are

illegal in Greenwood Village. Please be mindful of this law

and keep your family and neighbors safe.

DRIVER SAFETY TIPS

Road safety is the responsibility of all road users. Whether

you are a driver, a bicyclist, or a pedestrian, everyone has a

duty to follow all traffic laws to protect yourself and others.

Remember that you are not the only driver on the road and

must share the road with others, recognizing that all roadway

users deserve to be treated with respect. Please do your part

to prevent accidents and keep our roadways safe.

Stay Alert — Actively pay attention to your actions and

those of the drivers around you when you are driving.

Use Turn Signals — Always use your turn signals in advance

of making a lane change or turning.

Buckle Up — Wearing your seat belt is an essential safety tip

for drivers.

Follow Traffic Signals — Pay close attention to and obey

stop signs and traffic lights.

Respect Yellow Lights — Remember that the intent of a

yellow light is to notify drivers to slow down and prepare to

stop. A yellow traffic signal should not be viewed as a sign to

step on the gas to rush through an intersection before the

light turns red.

Come To A Complete Stop — When you see a stop sign or a

red light, it’s important to bring your vehicle to a complete

stop, even if you think no other vehicles are coming.

Do Not Text And Drive — It is never acceptable to send text

messages when operating a motor vehicle.

Obey Speed Limits — When driving, it’s important to stick

to the posted speed limit at all times.

Never Drive Under The Influence — It’s essential to avoid

operating a vehicle if you have been drinking, taking certain

types of prescription or non-prescription drugs, or are

otherwise impaired.

Yield Right Of Way — When other drivers have the right of

way, be sure to yield to them.

Respect Stopped Vehicles — When passing vehicles that are

stopped on the side of the road, move over to get out of the

way if the way is clear for you to change lanes. If changing

lanes is not possible, slow down while passing stopped

vehicles.

For more information on roadway safety, please call the

Police Department at 303-773-2525. GV

DRIVERS AND BICYCLISTS — SHARING THE ROAD

Even though a car may weigh more and can attain far greater speeds, bicyclists have the same rights and duties that are imposed to drivers.

• When overtaking a bicyclist proceeding in the same direction, a driver shall allow the bicyclist at least a three-foot separation between the

right side of the driver’s vehicle, including all mirrors or other projections, and the left side of the bicyclist at all times.

• The driver of a vehicle shall yield the right-of-way to a bicyclist or other authorized user of a bicycle lane in a bicycle lane.

• The driver of a vehicle shall not, in a careless and imprudent manner, drive the vehicle unnecessarily close to, toward, or near a bicyclist.

PROVIDER

Greenwood Village has provided trash

residences since 1996, and starting on

January 1, 2022, Waste Connections

unlimited number of additional bags

out beside the containers for

collection.

Waste Connections is an international

headquarters is in Houston, Texas, all

Waste Connections’ locations operate

as a local company with local

management, customer service, and

Colorado provides service to over

200,000 households and over 10,000

commercial customers in the Denver

metropolitan area, making Waste

Connections of Colorado one of the

largest providers of solid waste and

recycling removal in the area. Waste

Connections currently provides a

similar service to the City of Lone Tree

and is the preferred provider for

Highlands Ranch.

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. Single-stream

recycling will continue to be collected

every-other-week. While residents are

encouraged to use the containers

provided by Waste Connections,

you may still use any personal

containers that you have previously

purchased. Republic Services will

collect all Republic-branded

containers at the end of the year.

on the delivery of new Waste

Connections containers and the

collection of old Republic containers,

COVID-19 UPDATE

we’re all in this together!

ARAPAHOE COUNTY/

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

NOW IN LEVEL CLEAR

On Sunday, May 16, Arapahoe County moved to the newly

established Level Clear on the State’s COVID dial. Under

Level Clear, Adams and Arapahoe counties will enter a 90-

day Observation Period during which businesses, schools,

restaurants, and other facilities will be open at 100 percent

capacity. There will be no further restrictions beyond the

state’s mask-wearing requirements and any state public health

orders still in effect. The move to Level Clear is part of a

measured regional approach to safe reopening that happens

side-by-side with continuing efforts to vaccinate Colorado

residents against COVID-19. Vaccines are one of the most

powerful tools in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and

public health experts estimate that 70 to 80 percent of the

population must be vaccinated to stop the spread.

While the move to Level Clear is very encouraging and long

awaited, it leaves many people uncertain of how to prevent

and protect themselves from COVID-19, which is not gone

yet and can still impact people’s lives. The number one way

people can protect themselves and others is to be vaccinated

as soon as possible. The Tri-County Health Department

(TCHD) website is also another source of helpful guidance

for those who have loved ones that may not be able to be

vaccinated such as children under 12 and those with

weakened immune systems who may not optimally respond

to the vaccine. There is also good information from both the

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the

Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment

(CDPHE) on the TCHD website, that provides guidance on

returning to work and our daily lives while still living with

COVID-19.

MASK ORDER UPDATE

In May, the Governor announced an update

to the Statewide Mask Order:

• If you’ve been vaccinated, you don’t need

to wear a mask (unless a business

requires it).

• If you’re not vaccinated, masks are still

suggested in indoor settings.

• There are some situations where masks

are required:

Prisons, jails, healthcare, schools,

congregate care facilities.

• Many businesses are still going to require

masks to enter. It is suggested that you

still carry a mask with you for businesses

that may still require masks to enter.

For more information or clarification, visit

tchd.org or covid19.colorado.gov/. GV

Under Level Clear’s 90-day Observation Period

that began on May 16, TCHD health officials

will closely observe and monitor local conditions,

paying particular attention to the rates of hospital

admission. Counties may be moved to a more

restrictive level on the Simplified Dial if they

experience hospital admission rates higher than

two hospital admissions per 100,000 people. The

hospital admission rate is an important health

metric that indicates the severity of COVID-19

infections. Adams and Arapahoe Counties have

not surpassed this metric since January of 2021,

and we are hopeful that increased vaccination

rates, as well as other prevention strategies, will

keep all hospitalizations below this threshold

moving forward.

For more information about what the transition

to Level Clear means and how it affects residents

of Adams and Arapahoe counties, visit

www.tchd.org.

Looking for something new to satisfy your sweet tooth? Need

a pick me up in the morning? Celebrating a special occasion

or having an office meeting? Spice up your day with lipsmacking

treats from We Knead Donut.

We Knead Donut recently opened in Greenwood Village and

is conveniently located in the Cherry Crest Shopette on the

southwest corner of Orchard Road and University Boulevard.

The owner, Brad Kwon, was an engineer for 10 years prior to

entering the donut business. He states that he couples his

strong passion and love of donuts with his engineering sense

and applies pinpoint accuracy into making all his recipes.

We Knead Donut is Kwon’s third donut shop in Colorado.

He opened his first shop in Lone Tree six years ago and has

another location in Johnstown under the name of Mr.

Donuts. This is his first We Knead Donut location. The new

name was selected to differentiate and upgrade their product

and service. According to Kwon, Greenwood Village was

chosen since he was “interested in introducing his awardwinning

products to the people of the city. Greenwood

Village is the city where I have dreamed to open a shop since

we started business and I am happy to make our dream come

true. We wanted to serve the community with high quality

products and service.”

There is nothing quite like freshly handcrafted donuts to

start your day. We Knead Donut offers a variety of

scrumptious treats to satisfy all your cravings, from basic oldfashioned

donuts to mouthwatering unique variants. The

choices are numerous including classic flavors, raised, cake,

specialty filled donuts, cinnamon rolls, twists and apple

fritters. Several flavors of icings, fillings and toppings are

also available. The Cronut, a croissant donut, is one of their

best-sellers, famous for its crunchy thin layers of rich taste.
