UPDATE ON GV PROVIDING

GIGABIT HIGH SPEED

INTERNET TO RESIDENTS

Last summer, the City Council Infrastructure Committee,

comprised of Councilmembers Dave Bullock (chair), Dave

Kerber, Libby Barnacle, and Judy Hilton began exploring

options to provide high speed (gigabit) internet

to residents and businesses in Greenwood

Village. City Council wanted to understand

how the increased internet demand brought

about by changes in how people work, shop,

and experience entertainment could be

addressed. I am pleased to report the City

Council has authorized a comprehensive study

by industry consultants.

At the February 7, City Council Study Session,

staff recommended hiring a consultant to help

understand the options and expense to provide

George Lantz

fiber to the premise internet service. The three

glantz@

greenwoodvillage.com options that will be studied include a service

303-486-5741 provided by private industry, a public-private

partnership, or the Village providing the

service. The study’s results will include network designs and

the associated cost estimates. We are anticipating the study

will be completed this summer.

PROPERTY TAX 101

Like many of you, I recently received my property tax

statement from the Arapahoe County Assessor’s Office. I am

regularly asked who receives the property taxes and what

services are provided. To help explain those questions, we

have included a copy of our property tax brochure enclosed

with this month’s Newsletter. This brochure summarizes a

Village homeowner’s property tax statement (per $500,000

value). Your individual property tax statement will vary based

on the appraised value of your home and the school district

where your property is located (Littleton Public Schools or

Cherry Creek Schools). I hope the brochure provides some

valuable information on your property tax dollars and the

benefitting taxing entities. You will find it interesting that the

City of Greenwood Village receives less than 4% of your

property taxes.

TRASH CODE REMINDER

Now that the trash provider transition has been completed,

please note that the Greenwood Village Code regulates the

placement and storage of your trash and recycle containers to

protect the aesthetics of our neighborhoods.

• Timeframe for Container Placement at Curb

Trash and recycle containers may be placed at the curb no

more than one (1) day before a scheduled pickup and

must be removed from the curb no later than midnight

following a scheduled pickup.

• Screening and Storage

By City Ordinance, trash and recycle containers must be

stored in such a position on the property as to be

SPRING CLEANING

Although the temperatures still feel like winter, Spring will

shortly be here. Warmer temperatures are a great time to

clean out the garage and discard those household items

that no longer serve a purpose or collect unwanted dust.

For your convenience, Village residents are able to use our

Large Item Pick Up Service. This service is used to dispose

of many items including homeowner-removed branches

or brush (Note: The branches must be cut into sections 10

foot in length or less.) Other items include unwanted

furniture, mattresses, box springs, hot water heaters and

rugs.

The following items are not accepted for large item pickup:

commercial or contractor generated waste; concrete and

asphalt; roofing and siding; fences and decks; drywall and

framing; landscaping materials — including sod, soil, mulch,

bark, rock and pavers; branches or brush removed by a

contracted service; or items generated from projects requiring

a Building Permit.

All large items pickups must be scheduled with the Public

Works Department at 303-708-6100 before placing them at

the curb. Happy Spring cleaning!

THANK YOU TO OUR

SNOW REMOVAL CREWS

If you live or work in Greenwood Village, you can appreciate

the snow removal activities performed by our crews from

Public Works, Parks, Trails and Recreation, and Community

Development on our streets, sidewalks, trail systems, and

Village facilities prior to, during, and after every snowstorm.

For many years, our staff has delivered a level of snow

removal services that makes Greenwood Village one of the

best cities in which to live and work.

I extend my appreciation to every staff member who works

during our snowstorms. Every storm requires staff members

to become snowplow operators, ATV plow drivers, snow

throwers and shovelers, and mechanics. When a storm hits,

our affected employees shift their work schedule to provide

the Village with around-the-clock coverage.

GVPD ANNOUNCES

PASSING OF

K-9 RIGGS

We are heartbroken to announce the passing

of Greenwood Village Police K-9 Riggs. K-9

Riggs a 5-1/2 year old Belgian Malinois,

passed away unexpectedly on Sunday,

February 13, 2022, from a cancerous tumor.

With his police handler, Jeff Mulqueen and

his family by his side, K-9 Riggs was

euthanized while chewing on his favorite

Kong toy. K-9 Riggs was cremated, and his

ashes were laid to rest at his home next to

former Greenwood Village Police K-9s,

Magnum and Max, who were also police

dogs of Officer Mulqueen.

Since he joined the police department in

2018, K-9 Riggs played an instrumental role

for the Greenwood Village community as his K-9 skills

helped solve countless narcotic cases. K-9 Riggs was trained

in patrol work which included searching and apprehending

suspects; narcotic detection; and participated in numerous

tactical operations with the department’s Emergency

Response Team. K-9 Riggs also was known to lend a paw to

other police agencies when in

need including the Arapahoe

County Sheriff’s Office and

North Metro Drug Task Force

and the police departments of

Cherry Hills Village,

Englewood, Lone Tree, and

Parker.

When not working the streets

or hanging out at home resting

from his police work, K-9 Riggs

enjoyed making guest

appearances at community

events hosted by the Police

Department and other K-9

organizations such as Heroes

with Paws and Back the Blue

K-9 Force.

With the passing of K-9 Riggs,

the Police Department K-9

team includes K-9 Miner and handler, Juan Villalva. The

Police Department and Officer Mulqueen announced they

will be acquiring a new K-9 dog to add to the department’s

K-9 team in the future. For more information, please visit

the Greenwood Village Police Foundation at

Rest in peace K-9 Riggs. We will miss you! GV

OUR NATURAL environment

SPRING COYOTE BEHAVIOR

Wildlife experts indicate that most coyote and human

conflicts have been a direct result of human behavior such as

feeding coyotes, walking a dog without a leash, or leaving

food or water outside for your pets. Although these behaviors

may seem innocent, they are actually harmful to you and

your family, and to the health and safety of the coyote

population.

DO NOT FEED COYOTES

The feeding of coyotes by humans is one of the most harmful

actions man can inflict on coyotes and wild animal

populations. It is essential to minimize human/coyote

conflict as well as the health and well-being of coyotes to not

be fed by humans. Coyotes used to being fed become

habituated to human-provided food and alter their foraging

and hunting behavior. The feeding of coyotes encourages

them to remain in residential areas, increasing their

encounters with pets and humans.

What You Can Do:

• Never feed coyotes! Intentionally feeding coyotes is

illegal and these laws will be enforced.

• Keep pet food and water inside.

• Discourage others from feeding coyotes.

• Do not touch young coyotes. A coyote that appears

orphaned most often is not; the mother is usually nearby.

• Teach children not to feed, play with, or pet coyotes.

• Do not give coyotes the opportunity to get into your

garbage; keep garbage in sealed containers with secure lids.

• Remove attractants from your yard such as pet food, water

sources, bird feeders and fallen fruit.

• Fully enclose gardens and compost piles.

IF A COYOTE APPROACHES YOU

Be as Big, Mean, and Loud as possible

• Wave your arms and throw objects at the coyote

• Shout in a deep, loud and authoritative voice

• DO NOT RUN or turn your back on the coyote

• Face the coyote and back away slowly

• If attacked, fight back with your fists and feet

KEEP YOUR DOGS ON A LEASH

As coyotes adapt to their surroundings, they have discovered

that humans provide a sufficient source for food, water, and

shelter. Coyotes will feed on whatever is available to them,

including your household pets. While some attacks on pets

have been known to occur in backyards, many coyote-pet

interactions occur when a household pet is allowed to roam

free.

What You Can Do:

• Keep pets on a six-foot leash when walking at all times.

It is illegal to have your dog off a leash and the law will

be enforced.

• Never allow your pets to “play” with a coyote.

• Pick up small pets if confronted by a coyote.

• Always supervise your pet when outside, especially at

dawn and dusk.

• Never leave cats or dogs outside after dark.

• If you must leave your pet outside, secure it in a fully

enclosed kennel.

• Keep your pets up-to-date on vaccinations.

REPORT COYOTE

BEHAVIOR AND ACTIVITY

Please call the Greenwood Village Police Department at

303-773-2525 with information on coyote sightings. The

Police Department is actively keeping a record of coyote

activity in the Village which will assist the Village in tracking

the coyote population. GV

VILLAGE EFFORTS

TO BURY POWER

LINES CONTINUE

IN 2022

One of the reasons why people live and

work in Greenwood Village is due to

the majestic views and the quality of

parks, trails and open space areas. The

burial of power lines, through the

Village’s Utility Undergrounding

Program, is a shared investment of the

entire community which has

contributed to enhancing and

preserving these views.

In 2019, the City Council adopted a revised Utility

Undergrounding Policy to expedite the undergrounding of

overhead lines along roadways in residential areas based on

recommendations of the City Council Infrastructure

Committee. The committee is comprised of Councilmembers

Dave Bullock, Dave Kerber, Judith Hilton, and Mayor

George Lantz. Potential projects are prioritized based on

factors including, cost savings, safety, the number of homes

served, and complexity. Additionally, the Policy was modified

to focus on residential projects within public rights-of-way,

and to distribute projects equitably throughout the

neighborhoods. When a project begins, residents could

expand the scope of work outside the right-of-way at their

own expense.

Most of the undergrounding projects are managed through

the Village’s Utility Undergrounding Program, which is

funded by Xcel Energy based on its franchise agreement with

the Village. Xcel Energy allocates one percent (1%) of their

preceding year’s electric revenues for utility undergrounding.

These funds are held by Xcel Energy and are not part of the

Village’s annual budget.

In addition, utility undergrounding can also be accomplished

through other funding mechanisms. New development or

redevelopment projects typically require adjacent overhead

lines to be buried. Undergrounding projects can also be

coordinated with Capital Improvement Projects, in

partnership with adjacent municipalities, or utilities can be

undergrounded through the formation of a Local

Improvement Districts (LID) where the Village pays the

upfront costs and is then reimbursed by residents and

businesses benefiting from the overhead conversion through a

property tax assessment.

To date, approximately 13.5 miles of power lines have been

undergrounded throughout the Village. Approximately 12.5

of the 13.5 miles of lines have been funded through the

Utility Undergrounding Program at an approximate cost of

$8,900,000. The first undergrounding project was along

Clarkson Street, Belleview Avenue, and University Boulevard

in 1993.

Projects completed since 2019 include:

• Red Fox Lane west of South Monaco Street;

• East Garden Avenue west of South Colorado Boulevard;

• East Berry Avenue east and west of South Monaco Street;

• South Franklin Street from Franklin Circle to Cherryville

Road; and

• Cherryville Road west of South Franklin Street.

Staff will also be continuing work with Xcel and residents for

undergrounding in the Cherry Creek Village North

neighborhood.

Projects for 2022 include:

• Willamette east of University Boulevard;

• Garden Avenue between University Boulevard to Steele

Street; and

• Prentice Street, Dorado Avenue, and Powers Avenue

between Holly Street and Monaco Street.

Works Engineering Manager, at

CHOOK CHARCOAL CHICKEN

Are you looking for a quick lunch or an exhilarating evening

excursion? Want a tasteful, responsible, nutritious, and

affordable dinner for your family? Whether you dine in and

savor delicious drinks or take away, Chook Charcoal Chicken

aspires to provide delicious, responsible food that is easy to

take home and equally enjoyable in a relaxing and thoughtful

environment.

What exactly is “chook” you ask? “Chook” in Aussie lingo

means chicken. Can anyone say G’Day Mates? Chook

Charcoal Chicken recently opened their fourth location in

the Denver metro area right here in Greenwood Village in

the Cherry Hills Marketplace at 2500 East Orchard Road,

Suite C.

Chook Chicken really started with the egg. Founder Adam

Schlegel is also a co-founder of Snooze Eatery. While living

in Melbourne, Australia, with his lovely Australian wife and

two boys, Adam relished the local neighborhood chicken

shops where chicken was cooked fresh and nutritiously over

charcoal grills. Adam teamed up with James Beard Awardwinning

and famed chef Alex Seidel, a force in the world of

farm to table. Alex has built some of the top restaurants in

the country and the idea of creating memorable delicious

food that is affordable by all, something not just for special

occasions, but for every occasion, was formed. The two

teamed up with Randy Layman, a famed barman and

hospitality extraordinaire, to build something great.

Following a jaunt by the three founders back down to

Australia in 2018, Chook was “hatched.”

According to Adam, Greenwood Village was selected because

“we’ve known and have loved this community for years. It’s

such a strong community with families, schools,

neighborhoods, and partnerships. We really believe that what

we do, serving delicious, thoughtful food in a casual, fun

environment, fits in well with the community.”

Chook Chicken’s specialty is its delicious rotisserie chicken

cooked over their charcoal grill. Their menu boasts whole,

half, quarter dark or quarter white chicken with your choice

the same grill to cook several great veggie dishes including

grilled mixed vegetables, an unreal delicate squash dish, and

offer classics done well like Mac and Cheese and mashed

potatoes. Delicious salads, scrumptious bowls, tasty

sandwiches, and a yummy kid’s menu are also available.

Their sweets are all handcrafted by Fudmill Bakery and

include Lamingtons, Chocolate Chip Chookies and S’mores.

Also available is a thoughtful array of fine Colorado beers

and wines from Piemonte, Italy, on tap. You can also get your

favorite cocktail served in a lively little pot.

Looking for a family meal to eat in the comfort of your own

home? Grab some delicious Chook, bring it home, reheat,

replate, and show it off as your own. No offense taken. They

will even happily supply Chef Alex’s recommendations for

reheating Chook.

What makes Chook so special? Their free-range chickens are

sourced from Miller Farms, raised with no antibiotics and are

vegetarian fed with no animal byproducts using non-GMO

feed. According to Chef Alex, their chicken gets most of its

delicious flavor from their overnight brining process. The

brine helps retain moisture in the bird so it’s juicy and full
