THE MAYOR’S message

ARAPAHOE COUNTY

APPOINTS ITS FOUNDATIONAL

BOARD OF HEALTH

I want to update you on the formation of the new Arapahoe

County Public Health Department.

Commencing on January 1, 2023, the new

Arapahoe County Health Department will be

responsible for public health services. Until

that time, Arapahoe County residents will

continue receiving all public health services

from Tri-County Health Department

(TCHD).

In June, a critical milestone

was reached as five individuals

were appointed to the

Foundational Board of Health

George Lantz (BOH). The Arapahoe County

glantz@

Board of Health has

greenwoodvillage.com

303-486-5741 responsibility for the County’s

public health department. The

foundational BOH members will focus on

ensuring that Arapahoe County Public Health

is operational by January 1, 2023.

Following an extensive outreach process and

consistent with the State Statute, the

Arapahoe County Commissioners appointed

five individuals with staggered terms.

The Commissioners selected:

Arapahoe County Commissioner

Nancy Sharpe, Board Chairman

(term to expire on December 31, 2023)

Arapahoe County Commissioner

Nancy Jackson

(term to expire on December 31, 2023)

Bebe Kleinman

(term to expire on December 31, 2025)

Dr. Heather Signorelli

(term to expire on December 31, 2025)

Shawn Davis

(term to expire on December 31, 2027)

On June 29, the new health board appointed

Jennifer Ludwig as the new Director. Most

recently, Ms. Ludwig was the Deputy

Director of the Tri-County Health

Department.

GREENWOOD VILLAGE

DAY IS BACK

The City Council and I are excited to host Greenwood

Village Day, July 30 from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. This special

event has been canceled the past two years due to the

pandemic and related uncertainty. Our Parks, Trails and

Recreation staff has been planning the event for several

months. The event will include games, music, and a

magnificent fireworks display as the finale. You will need

tickets for this Greenwood Village special event. You may get

tickets for you and your immediate family at

FINAL PHASE

HUNTINGTON-

CALEY

MASTER PLAN

IMPROVEMENTS

You may be wondering about

all of the dirt being moved near

South Yosemite and Caley. This

is the final phase of the

Huntington-Caley park project

along the Goldsmith Gulch

corridor. The project began in

2014 with the creation of a

master plan, following input

from the surrounding

neighbors. The master plan

includes the pedestrian

undercrossing of Caley Avenue,

an extension of the regional trail,

braided gardens, improvements to the

pond, stream and wetland restoration,

and park landscape improvements.

This final phase will provide sculpted

berms along Yosemite Street and Fair

Avenue, a large informal lawn for

recreation, a natural play area, a

parking area off Caley Avenue, shade

structures with swinging benches, and

more.

Village employees Henry Sliwinski, 39

years, and Guy DuCharm, 41 years.

CELEBRATING OUR

EMPLOYEES

I would like to congratulate

two Village employees who

celebrated their 30+ year

work anniversary during the

second quarter of 2022.

Their efforts help make

Greenwood Village a special

place to live and work.

Guy DuCharm, Parks,

Technician II, 41 years

Henry Sliwinski, Fleet

Manager, 39 years

Thank you for your service!

VILLAGE HERO

Julia Lace is an 11-year-old

who loves the environment.

Julia recently graduated from

fifth grade at Greenwood

Elementary. Julia coordinated

with a composting company

to set up a service for 50

households in her District 1

neighborhood. To learn more

about Julia and composting,

COMPOSTING EVENT

On a blazing hot day in June nearly 50 people gathered in

the parking lot behind City Hall to get the breakdown on

composting.

Julia Lace, a Greenwood Elementary student now

transitioning to middle school, gave an engaging talk on the

importance of composting and how she launched a grassroots

effort to bring home pickup of compostable kitchen and

garden waste to Greenwood Village. Julia informed event

attendees about how composting can reduce waste going into

landfills, where it produces methane gas harmful to the

environment, by about 30 percent. She shared with her

listeners how she first heard about composting from her aunt

and decided that a weekly composting pickup service would

be valuable to have in Greenwood Village. Over the next year

and a half, she went door to door in her neighborhood until

she had convinced 50 households to sign up for a home

pickup service.

Volunteers from Denver Urban Gardens (DUG), and the

Arapahoe County Colorado Master Gardeners SM , were

available to answer the many questions attendees had about

how to begin or improve their composting at home. There

were also vendors onsite to give information on composting

related products and services. Wompost (wompostcoop.com)

and Compost Colorado (compost-colorado.com) are the two

companies providing service to Greenwood Village. They

offer home pickup of compostable kitchen and garden waste,

which is composted and returned to customers to use in their

gardens. The Greenwood Village Lowe’s was on hand to

showcase the compost and soil amendments sold at the store

and guide visitors to products like composting bins that are

available online. Backyard Boxes showed off their made-toorder

home composting bins and raised garden beds.

DUG, www.dug.org, offers learn to compost workshops and

a master composting training program. The Master Gardener

volunteers, who plant and tend the Silo Park gardens, provide

help with home gardening, lawn, and tree care questions.

They can be contacted via their website,

https://arapahoe.extension.colostate.edu/colorado-mastergardener/,

or by phone at 303-730-1920. GV

GOVERNMENT

ENSURING A SAFE

community

The Greenwood Village Police Department works to protect residents and businesses from crime, but to effectively sustain a crime-free

environment requires an active, engaged, and aware community. Remember — the most important single act you can do is to be aware of

your surroundings at all times and call the Police to report crimes or suspicious activities! As an observer, if the situation doesn’t look or

feel right, it probably is not. By going with your instincts, your actions could help deter a crime in progress or save your life or the life of a

neighbor.

TORNADO

PREPAREDNESS

When a tornado is coming, you have a

short amount of time to make critical

decisions. Advance planning and quick

response are the keys to surviving a

tornado. Greenwood Village does not

have a tornado siren system. Instead,

we would utilize the Citizen Alert

System to notify residents and

businesses of any impending danger.

KNOW HOW TO

SPOT A TORNADO

• An approaching cloud of debris can

mark the location of a tornado even

if a funnel is not visible.

• Some tornadoes are clearly visible,

while rain or nearby low-hanging

clouds obscure others. Occasionally,

tornadoes develop so rapidly that

little, if any, advance warning is

possible.

• Before a tornado hits, the wind

may stop and the air may become

very still.

• Tornadoes generally occur near the

trailing edge of a thunderstorm. It

is not uncommon to see clear,

sunlit skies behind a tornado.

• They may strike quickly, with little

or no warning.

• They may appear nearly transparent

until dust and debris are picked up

or a cloud forms in the funnel.

• The average tornado moves

Southwest to Northeast, but

tornadoes have been known to

move in any direction.

• Tornadoes are most frequently

reported east of the Rocky

Mountains during spring and

summer months.

• Tornadoes are most likely to occur

between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m., but can

occur at any time.

WHAT TO DO

BEFORE A TORNADO

• Develop a plan for your family and

your home.

• Conduct frequent drills.

• Designate an area in your home as

a shelter.

• Discuss difference between

WATCH and WARNING.

• Listen to television and radio for

information.

• Develop an emergency

communication plan.

• In the event family members are

separated during a storm, have a

plan for getting back together. Ask

an out-of-state friend to serve as the

“family contact.” After a disaster, it

is often easier to call long distance.

Make sure everyone in the family

knows the name, address, and

phone number of the contact

person.

• Have disaster supplies on hand.

WHAT TO DO

DURING A TORNADO

If At Work Or School

• Go to the basement or to an inside

hallway at the lowest level.

• Avoid places with wide-span roofs

such as auditoriums, cafeterias,

large hallways, or shopping malls.

PG. 8 GV NEWSLETTER | JULY 2022


GOVERNMENT

• Get under a piece of sturdy furniture such as a

workbench or a heavy table or desk and hold on to it.

• Use arms to protect head and neck.

If Outdoors

• If possible, get inside a building.

• If shelter is not available or there is no time to get

indoors, lie in a ditch or low-lying area or crouch near a

strong building.

• Be aware of the potential for flooding.

• Use arms to protect head and neck.

If In A Vehicle

• Never try to outdrive a tornado. Tornadoes can change

direction quickly and can lift up a car or truck and toss

it through the air.

• Get out of the vehicle immediately and take shelter in a

nearby building.

• If there is no time to get indoors, get out of the vehicle

and lie in a ditch or low-lying area away from vehicle.

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE

BETWEEN WATCH AND WARNING

Tornado Watch

The National Weather Service issues a tornado watch when

tornadoes are possible in the area. Remain alert for

approaching storms. This is the time to remind family

members where the safest places within your home are

located, listen to the radio and television for further

developments.

Tornado Warning

A tornado warning is issued when a tornado has been

sighted or indicated by weather radar. This is the time to

be in the safest places. GV

Lulu’s also carries an impressive collection of gift ideas for

many occasions. They carry Lafco and Nest candles, books,

personal care items, Houston Llew Spiritiles, Caddis glasses,

Blenko glass and just recently added Sid Dickens Memory

Knowing where to find the furniture and decorative items is

only part of the process though, the harder part is knowing

what you want or what will work well together. The experts

at lulu’s furniture & decor can help with that too. The

mother and daughter owners both grew up in the furniture

business and have over 30 family members that are currently

or have worked in the industry. This has not only given them

experience, but connections and the ability to buy from

hundreds of vendors as well. Lulu’s furniture & decor,

Christy Vranesic Brant and Caitlin Marsh have been featured

in numerous publications and are available to help create

the space you have always wanted or to figure out what that

may be.

Lulu’s furniture & decor is open seven days a week. Their

hours of operation are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to

Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. They can be

found at 5910 South University Boulevard in Suite E, online

and Parks Association (NRPA), the Parks,

Trails, and Recreation Department would like

to recognize July as National Parks and

Recreation Month. We Rise Up for Parks and

Recreation and all the professionals who build

strong, vibrant and resilient communities

through the power of parks and recreation.

This July, we are bringing attention to how

important it is to rise up and support our

field, because every day, park and recreation

professionals rise up for their communities in

service of equity, climate-readiness, and

overall health and well-being.

In celebration of Parks and Recreation Month, we will be offering the

following activities and events.

• Ice Cream Social — July 8 at Silo Park, 1 to 2:30 p.m.

• Proclamation — July 11

at City Council Meeting.

• Interactive Photo Scavenger

Hunt in the parks throughout

the month. Follow us on social

media for more information.

• Greenwood Village Day —

July 30 at Village Greens Park,

4 to 10 p.m.
