THE MAYOR’S

message

I HOPE YOU HAD

A HAPPY AND

HEALTHY HOLIDAY

SEASON!

A few weeks ago, I received a letter

from a long-time resident outlining

some reasons why he

appreciated living in

Greenwood Village. I

enjoyed reading his

letter. The point he

made was how grateful

he was for the many

benefits we receive for

the minimal property

tax we pay. As you may

recall in a previous

Newsletter, the Village’s

share of property tax on

a $500,000 home is

$104.82 or $209.64 on

a home valued at

$1,000,000. What do we as residents

receive for this money? There are a

number of them, let me outline a few:

SAFETY

One of the largest benefits is our

Police Department. Our police are a

highly progressive and a customer

service-oriented community policing

organization. They consistently work

to sustain and enhance the safety of

our community through education,

problem solving, crime prevention

strategies utilizing the most current

technology, ongoing data analysis, and

innovation. The department also

offers a large variety of programs for

residents to learn about the

department and interact with police

officers. These offerings include the

Citizens’ Academy, Youth Academy, a

Police Ride Along, Vacation House

Watch and a number of additional

educational opportunities to keep you

and your family safe.

PARKS, TRAILS

AND OPEN SPACE

We have parks, trails and open space

accessible from every district in the

Village. There are over 279 acres of

parks, 40 miles of trails (15 miles are

paved) and 84 acres of undeveloped

parks and open space. There are also

one-of-a-kind amenities like the

mountain bike and disc golf courses

for us to enjoy.

RECREATION

REIMBURSEMENT

PROGRAM

The Village’s Recreation Reimbursement

program reimburses households

up to $500 for a portion of the activity

expense at qualifying agencies along

the front range. These agencies include

nonprofit youth sports entities,

municipal golf courses, park and

recreation districts and metropolitan

districts that provide recreation

activities. Another option is to use

your reimbursement toward your

membership fees to Club Greenwood.

TRASH AND RECYCLING

PROVIDED AT CURBSIDE

Greenwood Village provides trash

collection and recycling service to

eligible Village private residences with

individual trash containers. Our

contractor will pick up your trash once

a week and recycling every other week.

SNOW REMOVAL

The Village is recognized for having

our streets and park trails cleared even

after major snowfalls. The Village staff

prides itself on getting our

thoroughfares and main streets cleared

often before people leave for work. I

often see the trails in our parks cleared

well before people leave for work or

school.

LARGE ITEM PICK UP

One of our resident’s favorite services

is large item pickup. This service is

available for items too large to be

picked up with the regular trash

service. All large items pickups must be

scheduled with the Public Works

curb. Be sure to confirm what items are eligible for pick up.

A list is available on greenwoodvillage.com/1289/large-itempick-up.

HAZARDOUS ELECTRONIC WASTE

PICK UP OFFERED ALL YEAR

The Village also provides a free service for picking up

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW). Residents may discard

household items including, but not limited to: batteries,

paint (solvent-based only), oils, antifreeze, and pool

chemicals. Computers, monitors, televisions, keyboards,

printers, radios, calculators, and almost anything with a cord

may be picked up through the program. Just call the HHW

Hotline at 1-800-449-7587 to schedule a collection.

These are just a few of the benefits we realize as residents.

We are thankful for the businesses, residents, and visitors

who help contribute to our financial stability through the

sales/use tax they pay, allowing the Village to provide these

services.

TRI-COUNTY HEALTH

DEPARTMENT TRANSITION

Since 1966, Arapahoe, Douglas, and Adams counties have

partnered with the Tri-County Health Department (TCHD)

for public health services. In 2021, Douglas County and

Adams County both announced their intention to leave the

TCHD partnership effective December 31, 2022. With their

departure, the Tri-County Health Department will cease to

exist in its current form. Arapahoe County must now

determine how best to serve the public health needs of our

County’s residents and businesses. As required by law,

Arapahoe County must have a health department in place

once TCHD ceases to exist.

The County recently announced a comprehensive process to

establish a new health department. A core project team has

been established to provide the Arapahoe County

Commissioners with the information necessary to make an

informed decision. We will provide you with additional

traffic. In addition to the circle, the intersection of

Orchard Drive and Orchard Road was realigned.

2. The Monaco Street Traffic Circles. These traffic circles

were originally installed in the late 1990s as a traffic

calming measure; helping reduce speeds along the

roadway. The existing circles were hard to maintain and

not very aesthetically pleasing. The Village developed a

new design that was more aesthetically pleasing, more

cohesive with the Village’s existing structural features, and

easier to maintain.

3. The implementation of a digital approach to capital

projects and right of way permits by our Public Works

Department. Public Works implemented the Trimble R2

Unit to inventory annual pavement and concrete

rehabilitation contracts such as asphalt patch locations,

asphalt crack repair, utility adjustments, and concrete

panel replacement. This program allows the Village to

better manage our substantial pavement rehabilitation

program by bringing efficiency, precision, accountability,

and forethought to our annual maintenance and project

permitting processes.

GV AWARDED THREE ELECTRIC

VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS

I am pleased to announce the Village has been awarded three

(3) grants to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.

These grants were awarded by the Regional Air Quality

Council (RAQC) through its Charge Ahead Colorado

program. These EV charging stations will be multi-port

stations that are capable of charging up to two vehicles at a

time. The charging stations will be placed in two Village

locations:

Two EV charger stations will be placed at City Hall: one in

the parking lot that serves William McKinley Carson Park

and the other in the main City Hall parking lot. The third

EV charging station will be placed on a public easement

within the Arapahoe Entertainment District. These stations

will complement the existing charging stations previously

installed at the city’s maintenance facility.

The RAQC grant provides the Village up to $9,000 per

charging station or approximately 80% of the multi-port

charging station expense. This grant requires the Village to

provide the remaining 20% as a match. Staff will begin

soliciting bids in January and the charging stations should be

operational this summer.

All the best to you and yours in 2022!

NEW WATER BILL

ASSISTANCE, RATES

As a reminder, Denver Water’s new water rates, approved by

the Denver Board of Water Commissioners in October, take

effect Jan. 1, 2022.

If residents are experiencing a financial hardship, it’s better to

pay what they can to keep the balance manageable. Denver

Water also partners with Mile High United Way to provide

And, if a household qualifies for the Colorado Low-Income

Energy Assistance Program, the new Low-Income Housing

VILLAGE ADOPTS REGULATIONS FOR RESIDENTIAL

GROUND-MOUNTED SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEMS

The City Council recently approved

Ordinance 10-21 [amending Chapter 16 of

the City’s Municipal Code] to allow

ground-mounted solar energy systems as

an accessory use of residential property.

The ordinance provides regulations

relative to the height, location, size, lot

coverage, and required screening of such

systems. The following provides the

highlights of the regulations:

• HEIGHT: Maximum 6’ in zone districts

R-0.75 and smaller; Maximum 9’ in

zone districts R-1.0 and larger.

• LOCATION: Must meet accessory

structure setbacks per the LDC.

• SIZE: The size of a ground-mounted

solar energy system is determined by

measuring the total panel surface area.

There is not a specific size limitation,

however the system must comply with

the lot coverage requirements.

• COVERAGE: The total solar panel

surface area is counted toward the

total maximum square footage allowed

for accessory structures for the

specific zone district.

Example of 80% screening of ground-mounted solar panels.

• SCREENING: Systems that are visible

from the ground-level living areas of

adjacent properties must be screened

with year-round dense landscape

plantings that are of sufficient height

and mass to effectively screen them at

least 80% from the view of adjacent

properties.

In addition to the Ordinance, Council also

adopted Resolution 02-22, which provides

a visual illustration of what the Council

has deemed is an example of acceptable

screening of ground-mounted solar

energy systems in terms of the density

and type of landscaping to be installed.

The above image is the illustration that

was adopted:

If you have any questions about

the regulation, please contact

PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING

ORCHARD DRIVE TRAIL

RECONSTRUCTION

You are invited to a public information meeting, to review

the design for the proposed Orchard Drive Trail

Reconstruction project on Thursday, January 27 from 6:30 to

7:30 p.m. at the Greenwood Village Maintenance Facility

(10001 E. Costilla Avenue).

The project will remove and replace the existing trail and

fence along Orchard Drive from Orchard Road to Holly

Street. The new trail will remain asphalt and the new fence

will also match the existing split rail style. In addition, the

grass buffer between Orchard Road and the trail will be

restored to promote long-term grass establishment and

minimize weeds. The project will also enhance safety

throughout the trail corridor by addressing drainage issues,

improving trail cross slopes, minimizing utility manhole

hazards, and adding safety railing between the upper and

lower trails near the Holly pedestrian undercrossing.

If you are unable to attend this public meeting and would

like information on the project, please visit Village Voices at

greenwoodvillagevoices.com starting January 20 where you

can view the design and provide feedback directly to Village

staff. For more information, please call Josh Morin, Parks

THE GARDNER SCHOOL

5580 South Park Place • 720-672-9980 • www.thegardnerschool.com

Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-6 p.m.

Founded in 2004, The Gardner School opened their

Greenwood Village location in August of 2021. The Gardner

School is an academically focused preschool for ages six weeks

through five years old. They are dedicated to serve the families

who live and work in Greenwood Village and provide a

nurturing learning environment for their young children. The

Gardner School’s mix of traditional and Montessori-style

education gives students the balance between learning and

playtime to allow them to build a solid foundation for their

brightest futures.

The Gardner School is headquartered in Franklin, Tennessee,

and has locations all over the United States. They chose

Greenwood Village as their first Colorado location because of

its vibrant business and residential community. The Village is

a place where they can serve young families and help students

learn and grow.

The Gardner School thrives to create a rich learning

environment that will stimulate student’s physical, social,

emotional, and intellectual growth. They believe each child

should be provided with experiences that enhance self-esteem

and that this is essential in the

adjusting, exploring, and growing

stages of child development.

They have been committed to an

evidence-based curriculum that

has been well-implemented since

opening their first location in

2004. Their diverse selection of

research-based curriculums allows

every class to build upon the

previous age groups’ foundations by reviewing and scaffolding

concepts and making connections in new ways through

hands-on experiences. The Gardner School weaves learning

opportunities into countless activities, including trying

nutritious foods in their Kids’ Café, learning from different

community visitors, and giving back to those in need. All of

this creates an environment for children to thrive

academically, emotionally, and socially.

The Gardner School also offers optional enrichment courses
