MARJORIE PERRY

NATURE PRESERVE

This month, I want to share some

information on a hidden treasure

tucked away in the heart of rural

Greenwood Village, the Marjorie

Perry Nature Preserve. The nature

preserve, located just south of

Belleview Avenue, is comprised of

59 acres of open space area

providing an opportunity for park

and trail users to enjoy nature with a

backdrop of scenic landscapes,

natural vegetation, wildlife habitat,

and drainage ways. The Marjorie Perry Nature

Preserve is the perfect location for artists and

photography buffs to capture nature’s beauty and

can be accessed by following the High Line Canal Trail north

from the trail’s intersection with Orchard Road or south from

the trail’s intersection with Belleview Avenue.

Marjorie Perry owned a 200-acre parcel in the rural

Greenwood Village. Koelbel and Company acquired the

property and in 1990 dedicated 55 acres to the Village for

use as a nature preserve and wildlife habitat. In 2005, the

City Council protected the area by recognizing the Marjorie

Perry Preserve as a “Nature Preserve.” Thereby making it

Greenwood Village’s policy to establish guiding principles for

stewardship of this special land. In 2007, two additional lots

totaling 4.29 acres were added to the holdings. These lots

known as the “the inholdings” were purchased by the Village

using a Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Grant. Now, all

59 acres are protected by a conservation easement that is held

by Colorado Open Lands.

BELLEVIEW AVENUE

AND I-25 INTERCHANGE

Many of you have asked about the Belleview and I-25 traffic

congestion. The congestion has increased over the years as the

area north of Belleview is further developed. This is

particularly true for the area on the northwest side of the

Belleview and I-25 intersection. As many of you remember,

this area was the Mountain View golf course prior to being

redeveloped into a dense concentration of offices,

apartments, hotels and retail without taking measures to

mitigate the resulting traffic’s impact.

Since 2012, Greenwood Village in conjunction with

Arapahoe County, the City and County of Denver and

Southeast Public Improvement Metropolitan District

(SPIMD) have been analyzing ways to improve this

intersection. This ongoing study has been financed by the

same partnership.

In November of 2019, the technical advisory committee

presented their findings. This committee recommended using

the existing Union Street overpass with improvements for

multi-modal transportation as the best solution to meet the

area’s traffic requirements through 2040. (It should be noted,

that in 1993 the Goldsmith Metropolitan District paid for

and built the Union Avenue Overpass to offer long term

relief to traffic demands on the I-25 and Belleview

interchange. This overpass was subsequently given to

Denver). This solution not only included Union Street

interchange improvements but also improved access to the

Belleview Light Rail Station, addressed first/last-mile

connectivity concerns, built a grade-separated pedestrian

bridge to link communities on the east and west side of I-25,

added new sidewalks along Belleview Avenue to improve

walkability, and improved connections to the northern part

of the DTC.

During the November 2019 Executive Committee meeting,

the Executive Committee voted 7-1 to move the Union

Street recommendation forward which means following the

technical committee’s Split Diamond recommendation.

Denver cast the lone dissenting vote. Denver requested and

was granted additional time to study the various options. The

additional analysis included three public meetings with the

last public meeting taking place in October of 2020. During

this process, Denver developed an alternate configuration

which the Federal Highway Administration has subsequently

turned down twice for technical reasons.

In order to keep the project moving forward, GV in

conjunction with Arapahoe County, have continued to

pursue funding so that once an agreement is reached, the

project may be constructed in a timely manner. Together we

have the Belleview and I-25 project designated as

Congressman Crow’s top designated project in the

transportation reauthorization bill. Denver’s continued

development on the north side of Belleview makes moving

this project forward critical before congestion gets any worse.

We are hopeful Denver will stop promoting congestion and

reconsider their opposition to the best technical solution.

Additional information on the I-25 and Belleview project

and timeline are included on pages 12-14 of this Newsletter.

COVID AND PUBLIC

HEALTH ORDERS

The Council and I have been asked if we have the legal

authority to “opt out” of Health Department Orders. The

answer is we do not unless we have our own Health

Department. I want to share with you the specifics of what

Colorado law allows.

Colorado law places the authority for public health in the

hands of the County or district public health agencies like

Tri-County Health Department (TCHD). These agencies

have the authority to establish public health rules applicable

to all unincorporated areas, towns and cities within their

jurisdiction. Unless the a public health order specifically

allows cities the ability to “opt out” of a public health order,

the only way a city can ignore public health orders issued by

a county or public health agency is to form their own public

health department, appoint a municipal board of health, and

take over all of the duties of a county or district health

department regarding implementation of state public health

laws and directives from the state public health board, the

water quality control commission, air quality control

commission and solid and hazardous waste commission, and

maintain vital statistics, vector control, health inspections,

and other public health programs. As you can imagine,

continued on page 4

SEPTEMBER 2021 | GV NEWSLETTER PG. 3


GOVERNMENT

continued from page 3

funding a public health department and providing

all these services would be very expensive.

As you may have heard, TCHD recently granted,

then took away, the ability of Arapahoe County to

opt out of any mask mandate. You can find the

latest information on the pandemic on pages 22-23

including where to get the vaccine. Stay safe and

healthy.

CULTURAL ARTS

SURVEY RESULTS

We are pleased to present the results of our Cultural

Arts Survey on pages 20-21. We had over 700

residents complete the survey. Live concerts were

the most requested event. With the help of the Arts Council,

the Parks, Trails and Recreation staff, we hosted four concerts

in August. It was great to see so many residents and their

families enjoying the bands, right in their own

neighborhood. Based on the survey, staff and the Arts

Council will be working to offer additional programs. Please

be on the lookout for additional activities and events coming

next year.

HAPPY RETIREMENT FOR

TWO PTR EMPLOYEES

One of the greatest assets we the Village has is our employees.

These people work every day to provide the programs and

services we enjoy as residents and businesses living and

working in the Village. Previously, we have not featured any

employee retirements in the Newsletter, but I felt it was

important to recognize employees who have dedicated their

careers to Greenwood Village.

In September, we have two long term employees who are

retiring. They are Cathy Delap (Pate), Recreation Manager,

and Kurt Nielsen,

Park Supervisor,

Horticulture.

Cathy Delap has

been with the Village

for 33 years and has

been our Recreation

Manager for the

entire time. Many of

you recognize her

work and creativity

hosting special events

including GV Day,

Fall Fest, Fishing

Derby, and the

Mayor’s Holiday

experiences at these events through the years for our children

and families. Cathy also managed the youth and adult sports

programs like Fun in the Sun.

Kurt Nielsen worked for the Village for

40 years. He has been the Village Arborist

for 40 years and was the Village’s Urban

Forestry Supervisor for 30 years. Kurt, the

“tree” guy was responsible for the

maintenance of nearly 13,000 trees in our

Village. In addition, he and his crew have

the 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. His

efforts included planting, fertilizing,

pruning, and removing trees.

On behalf of the Village, we wish both

Cathy and Kurt well and thank you for

making a difference in our community.

You will be missed.

WESTLANDS PARK SUNDIAL IMPROVEMENTS

In July, with the help of Boy Scout Troop 373, improvements were made to the Westlands

Park Sundial. The sundial is located at the north-west corner of the park and features a time

capsule, scheduled to be opened in 2050.

The area in which the sundial is located had become overgrown by old plants and was in

general disrepair. Led by Eagle Scout Jasper Langley-Hawthorne, the troop removed old

plants, soil, and debris from the planting beds. The troop also cleaned the pavement and

installed new plant material, mulch, and two bee hotels. The new plant selection includes

pollinator friendly and low water use plants.

assure a smooth transition.

As a new customer of Waste Connections, you will be

receiving new containers, including one 96-gallon trash

container and one 96-gallon recycling container, from Waste

Connections at the end of this year. Residents may continue

placing an unlimited amount of waste out for collection,

which can be in Waste Connections-provided containers,

personally owned containers, or in bags. If the containers

provided by Waste Connections are not enough for your

needs, you may request additional containers through Waste

Connections; residents may obtain one extra recycling

container at no charge, but additional containers may incur

additional costs that will be paid by the resident directly to

BELLEVIEW AVENUE AND I-25

INTERCHANGE PROPOSED

IMPROVEMENTS

WHERE ARE WE AT TODAY?

The Belleview Interchange serves as a major connection in

the south Denver region. The interchange experiences heavy

traffic throughout the day with high traffic volumes in the

morning, noon and evening peak periods. Nearly 50,000

vehicles per day travel on Belleview Avenue to access places

in Greenwood Village, Denver, Cherry Hills Village and

unincorporated Arapahoe County. These daily traffic

volumes are expected to increase to 65,000 by 2035 due to

the region’s growth and development. The existing Belleview

and I-25 Interchange is not able to accommodate current

and future traffic demands, and the addition of future

traffic will result in even further congestion and safety

concerns.

2012 CORRIDOR STUDY

LAUNCHED TO ADDRESS

TRAFFIC CONGESTION

In 2012, the Belleview Avenue Corridor Plan study was

initiated through a partnership between Arapahoe County,

City and County of Denver, Greenwood Village and the

Southeast Public Improvement Metropolitan District

(SPIMD) to help plan for future improvements that would

relieve congestion at the interchange and along the corridor.

The study area included the area of Belleview Avenue from

Monaco Street on the west to DTC Boulevard on the east,

including the I-25 Interchange. The plan outlined

recommended improvements for automobile, transit, and

pedestrian and bicycle traffic along this major arterial.

Several dozen ideas were identified, analyzed, and vetted with

each of the stakeholder agencies that participated in the

study. The interchange area was fraught with constraints

including development on all four quadrants of this already

tight interchange; a light rail line along the west side of the

interchange; and four closely spaced signalized intersections.

The potential solutions resulting from this study established

the long-range objective for improving the Belleview Avenue

and I-25 Interchange. Stakeholder agencies began

collaborating on identifying potential funding sources. A

public open house was held on June 19, 2013, to present

findings of the study to the public. The Belleview Avenue

Corridor Study was later completed in 2016.

ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY

COMMENCED IN 2018

As a result of the Belleview Avenue Corridor Study which

identified potential solutions to the Belleview Avenue and

I-25 Interchange, the next step was for the stakeholder

agencies to complete an Environmental Study, required by

the Federal Government, in coordination with federal, state

and local agencies. The study reevaluated alternatives that

were considered in the Belleview Avenue Corridor Study, as

well as new alternatives.

The Belleview Avenue and I-25 Interchange Improvement

Study began in 2018. The goal of the Environmental Study

was to identify a preferred alternative that can move into

final design and construction. The technical analysis

included alternatives analyzed in a detailed evaluation of

specific criteria, including traffic operations, safety,

multimodal, community impacts (access, environmental,

right-of-way, constructability), and cost.

Two alternatives, along with the No-Action Alternative, made

it through detailed screening and were considered for

recommendation. The first alternative is a Single-Point Urban

Interchange at Belleview Avenue and I-25 (shown on page 13).

PG. 12 GV NEWSLETTER | SEPTEMBER 2021


GOVERNMENT

Single-Point Urban Interchange at Belleview Avenue and I-25

The second alternative is a Split Diamond Interchange with

Union Avenue and Belleview Avenue (shown on page 14).

In November 2019, the Technical Committee presented their

findings to the Project’s Executive Committee. The Executive

Committee voted 7-1 to support the Technical Committee’s

Split Diamond recommendation as the best alternative.

Denver did not support the Split Diamond and requested

more time to study the alternatives.

The technical staff completed the requested additional

technical analysis in the summer of 2020. The stakeholders

also conducted public comment meetings and the public was

able to provide input online at greenwoodvillagevoices.com.

After this review, the Technical Committee reaffirmed

their recommendation of the Split Diamond alternative.

The partners continued discussions on how to move the

project forward until in August of 2021, Denver formally

announced the split diamond alternative is against their

policy and they will not support the option.

To date, no decision has been made nor agreed upon by the

funding partners on the recommended alternative. All

funding partners must agree on an alternative to continue the

process.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE POSITION

AND RECOMMENDATION

Greenwood Village supports the Split Diamond Alternative.

The Split Diamond provides the best overall congestion

mitigation. However, in July of 2021, Denver informed the

other project partners that this alternative is against their

policy on not adding travel lanes. Denver’s policy on

congestion includes the addition of bike, pedestrian, and

transit facilities but does not support the addition of vehicle

travel lanes. While the Split Diamond includes bike,

pedestrian, and transit lanes on Union Avenue it also adds

two turn lanes for vehicles. The addition of these lanes on

Union Avenue is not consistent with Denver’s policy and

therefore, they do not support this alternative.

While we continue to work with our partners, Greenwood

Village and Arapahoe County continue to pursue funding

so that once agreement is reached on an alternative, the

project can be constructed in a timely manner. Congressman

Jason Crow has recently included the Belleview/I-25 project

on his top project list sent to Congress for consideration

in the transportation reauthorization bill to be considered

this year.

NEXT STEPS

The next step in the process to make improvements to the

Belleview and I-25 Interchange is for Greenwood Village, Arapahoe

County, City and County of Denver, and the Southeast Public

Improvement Metropolitan District to select one of the alternatives

proposed from the study

as the “preferred

alternative” based on their

review of the technical

analysis and feedback from

the public. This decision is

required to apply for

construction funding and

inclusion onto regional

long-term plans. The

identified solution, once determined, will proceed through

preliminary design including evaluation for environmental impacts,

as required by the Federal Government and then a final design can

begin. Once funding has been identified and secured, the project

will be able to move forward to construction stages, which could be

years into the future. It is estimated that split diamond or the single

point interchange would cost near $110 million to construct.

SCHOOL RESOURCE

OFFICERS

Children’s safety is the number one

priority of the Greenwood Village

Police Department as we begin the

2021-2022 school year. Through a

partnership between the Village and

the Cherry Creek School District, the

Greenwood Village Police Department

provides six (6) school resource officers

to enhance the safety of approximately

8,725 students, faculty, and staff of the

Cherry Creek School District (CCSD)

campuses in Greenwood Village. Five

school resource officers are assigned to

the Cherry Creek School campus,

including Belleview Elementary and

Campus Middle School; and one

officer is assigned to West Middle

School and Greenwood Elementary.

The Greenwood Village Police

Department school resource officers

are involved in many activities at each

school focused on safety, education,

mentoring and relationships, and

events. Some of their responsibilities

include working with school safety

teams on improving school safety,

investigating direct and indirect school

threats, and managing traffic

enforcement and safety around the

schools.

School resource officers also teach

classes on a variety of subjects

concerning safety and legal principles

such as defensive driving, Creek 101,

social media safety class, Arapahoe

County Youth Sexting Diversion

program, and court ordered Life Skills

program.

Serving as positive role models,

building relationships, and mentoring

students is a passionate undertaking

for every school resource officer as

Officer Rodney Valenzuela, Sergeant Steve Nelson, Corporal Sarah Joswick, Officer Reiley Attenburg, and Officer Max Addante.

relationships are key to creating

and sustaining a safe school

environment. School resource

officers operate out of offices in

each school they are assigned to

provide direct and safe access for

staff and students to request

assistance.

School resource officers also have

an active presence and play a

significant role in attending

school related events, including

pep rallies, highs school

graduations, registration days,

special education games, student

and political protests, parent

information meetings, and

school sponsored events to

ensure the safety of activities.

Provided at the end of this

article is contact information for

the 2021-2022 Greenwood

Village Police School Resource

Officers. In an emergency or for

immediate assistance in an

urgent situation, please call

9-1-1 FIRST. An available

officer will be immediately

dispatched to the situation.

In addition, we encourage you to

reach out to your school resource

officers who are available to offer

assistance to parents and

students. Get involved in what

your children are doing and how

they are feeling about life,

school, friends, etc. Parents who

notice red flags early have the

best chance to getting their

children to change or get help

before the situation worsens.

Declining grades, disrespectful

friends, loss of activity or

interest, and use of drugs are

some warnings signs to watch for

that your child may require

some immediate assistance and

CULTURAL ARTS

SURVEY RESULTS

CULTURAL ARTS

MASTER PLAN IN THE

WORKS TO DEFINE

FUTURE OFFERINGS

In March 2021, the Greenwood

Village Arts and Humanities Council

(GVAHC) conducted a survey to gain

input from residents as to what

cultural arts offerings they would like

to see provided in Greenwood Village.

Whether it’s an art class at the Curtis

Center for the Arts, a gallery exhibit, a

concert, or a special outdoor event,

the Village requested resident input to

determine a long-term Cultural Arts

Plan and programs for the Village. For

convenience, a printed survey was

mailed to all residents to complete, or

residents could complete a survey

online at greenwoodvillagevoices.com.

Of nearly 6,775 residential

households in the Village, 713 surveys

were completed, representing nearly a

10.5% response rate.

Questions on the survey provided

residents the opportunity to rank their

preferences for attending activities in

four main areas — Performing Arts,

Visual Arts, Arts/Education, and

Cultural/Heritage and activities. Live

music followed by visual arts, theater

and arts education were most favored

by respondents. Respondents were

also asked about what performing arts

offerings they would like to see, and

adult music, adult theater, and

comedy shows came in as the top

three. Lastly, residents would like to

see more art exhibits, art fairs, and

cultural programs such as Hollywood,

Independent and Documentary films.

An Art Fair, Art on the Green is

scheduled for September 11 and 12 at

COVID-19 UPDATE

we’re all in this together!

TCHD RESCINDS OPTION

TO OPT-OUT OF PUBLIC HEALTH

ORDERS; PASSES UNIVERSAL

SCHOOL MASKING ORDER

The Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) Board of

Health met on Monday, August 30 to discuss next steps

regarding the school masking order that went into effect

August 23 and the subsequent opting-out of the order by

Adams and Douglas counties. During the meeting, the Board

of Health voted to rescind their policy on allowing opt outs

to county-wide public health orders by Boards of County

Commissioners, rescind their recent school mask order for

children aged 2-11 years, and put a universal mask order in

place for all schools in Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas

counties, regardless of vaccination status.

The new order requires facial coverings to be worn by all

individuals aged 2 years and older in all school and child care

settings and was effective September 1, 2021, and is in effect

until December 31, 2021, unless amended, extended or

rescinded.

The Delta variant has now spread worldwide. It is twice as

contagious as the strain that was spreading in Colorado last

winter, and twice as likely to cause illness that requires

hospital care. There is also a growing concern about further

mutations of the virus (e.g. delta plus).

Adams, Arapahoe, and Douglas counties continue to have

high rates of community transmission and are currently in the

CDC’s “high level of community transmission.” There have

been 44 confirmed and suspected outbreaks since the beginning

of August in schools in Adams, Arapahoe and Douglas

counties. Most new cases are among those who are not or

cannot be vaccinated, including children younger than 12.

Wearing masks during times of high community transmission

provides added protection to the person wearing the mask

and can reduce transmission to others. Mask wearing in

schools is particularly important because there are so many

interactions in schools between vaccinated and unvaccinated

people, because children under 12 are not yet eligible to

receive COVID-19 vaccines, and because wearing a mask is

safe for kids age 2 years and older.

Mask-wearing is one aspect of a comprehensive mix of

mitigation strategies. Masks have been shown to be 50-70%

effective in reducing transmission of infection. However, like

vaccination, protection from masking is most effective with

higher levels of use; mask-wearing compliance is highest

when it is mandated.

Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, and Jefferson counties, as well as

school districts Adams 12, Adams 14, Westminster, Englewood,

Sheridan, Aurora, and Cherry Creek have each put

masking orders in place. TCHD has been working with school

districts to achieve optimal in-person learning and prevent

transmission of COVID-19 and will continue to do so.

corporate event that has something for everyone? Check out

the recently opened Pindustry, the biggest, baddest and

classiest place to spend your evening.

Pindustry is the first development to open in the new

Arapahoe Entertainment District (AED) along the Arapahoe

Road Corridor. Located on Arapahoe Road just south of

Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre, they boast a 54,500 square

foot entertainment venue including bowling, vintage gaming,

live music, restaurant, and bar. The site includes two floors of

entertainment and dining with a large outdoor beer garden,

stage for live music, and a massive rooftop patio. The Sky

Deck has room for 1,000 guests and features expansive openair

views of the Front Range and Pikes Peak.

Name your game, Pindustry probably has it, and most likely

they have three or four of each. Along with 11 lanes of

traditional bowling, Pindustry also offers 12 lanes of duckpin

bowling, a variation with smaller balls, lighter pins, shorter

lanes, and no need to change your shoes. You can enjoy a

beer, cocktail, or charcuterie board right at your very own

comfy couch. Take on your friends in darts or cornhole while

you enjoy the beer gardens or Sky Deck. Old classics like

skeeball, ping pong and Jenga will keep you entertained all

night. If vintage pinball and eye-popping retro arcades are

more your style, they have that too. Do not leave out the

billiards, foosball tables, or shuffleboard. Everything that you

could think of to play, they have got it covered.

Pindustry’s food menu is Italian-inspired and currently

focused on 13 different wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas. They

are gearing up to add charcuterie boards to their offerings

and will continue to expand their menu as they grow their

kitchen team. Future additions to the menu include salads,

ciabatta sandwiches, and dessert pizzas.

Technology is advancing in every area of our

lives. Xcel Energy is modernizing their electric

distribution grid and grid management

operations through the Advanced Grid

Initiative. The next generation of the energy

grid—the advanced grid — will help Xcel

Energy serve their customers better.

Over the next

few months,

Xcel Energy will

be installing

smart electric

meters across

Greenwood

Village. Along

with these smart

electric meters

will come

updated rate

structures, grid

and technology

enhancements, and new programs and services

– all part of the Advanced Grid Initiative.

The smart electric meters will include twoway

communication capabilities to wirelessly

transmit near real-time data between customer

meters and Xcel Energy’s network. These

smart meters will come with multi-layered

encryption that improves transmission security

while also emitting radio frequencies of less

than that of a cell phone.

The smart electric meter exchange requires

minimal to no action on your part. Xcel

Energy will notify you at least one month

prior to the meter exchange. Exchanges occur

between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday through

Friday. You will not need to schedule an

appointment or be home during the exchange

if your meter is accessible. You will receive

additional guidance in advance of your smart

meter exchange.

Energy grid sections do not necessarily follow

Greenwood Village’s boundaries, so

installation may be completed in one part of

the community several months before it’s

completed in other parts of the community.

2021 ART SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS

Each year, the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council gives out two $5,000 scholarships to graduating seniors who are

pursuing a degree in the arts. The winners’ schools also receive a $500 award to go toward the schools’ art program.

This year the awards went to Caetano De Sa, a Cherry Creek High School graduate and Malia Logan, a graduate of Eaglecrest

High School. Caetano will be attending the Berklee School of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, and pursuing a degree in Musical

Theater. Malia will be attending Bellhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi, and pursuing a degree in Creative Writing. The

Arts Council presented their awards at the City Council meeting on August 16, 2021.

Applications for the scholarships are available starting in March. For more information about the scholarship program, contact

the Cultural Arts Program at 303-797-1779.
