MAYOR RON CALLS TO 9-1-1 FROM CELL PHONES There is an important safety matter regarding the use of your cell phone when you call 9-1-1. Depending on your location, your cell phone will be routed to the nearest dispatch center in the community you are in or near when you dial 9-1-1. Just because you are in Greenwood Village does not mean your cell phone will always be routed to the Village Ron Rakowsky Police Department’s rrakowsky@ 9-1-1 Center. It is greenwoodvillage.com imperative that you know 303-486-5741 your location when you call 9-1-1 so that the police dispatcher receiving your call can guide police, fire or rescue services to your location. All landlines in Greenwood Village are routed to our dispatch center.

CITIZEN SURVEY COMING TO RESIDENTS THIS FALL

After postponing the distribution of a citizen survey in 2010 due to budget constraints, residents will now receive the 2012 Citizen Survey in the mail this fall. The citizen survey assesses the level of citizen satisfaction with a wide variety of specific outcomes provided by the Village, and identifies where improvements are needed. The Citizen Survey will ask questions regarding quality of life, safety, aesthetics, cleanliness, recreation and the arts, mobility and ease of travel, environment, Village identity, sense of community, and customer service. All residents will receive a hard copy of the survey to complete and return, postage paid, to the Village.

As we work through the details to finalize the survey, our hope is to also provide residents with the option of completing the survey online if they so choose. We will provide further details about the Citizen Survey in the October Newsletter. For more information, please call Matt Cohrs, Assistant to the City Manager, at 303-486-5746.

PATENT OFFICE COMING TO DENVER In July the Denver metro area was selected as one of three locations for a new U.S. Patent and Trademark satellite office (USPTO). The other two locations selected are Dallas,

Texas, and San Jose, California, representing Silicon Valley. These offices are in addition to the alreadyannounced first USPTO satellite office that opened on July 13 in Detroit, Michigan and the Washington, D.C. headquarters located in Alexandria, Virginia. These offices will work closely with entrepreneurs to process patent applications, reduce the backlog of unexamined patent applications, and speed up the overall process, allowing businesses to move their innovation to market more quickly creating new jobs.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

It may seem like it can only happen in movies or narrated in your favorite non-fiction book, but what if you find yourself or your family in a life-threatening situation and you have a leading role. What would you do? Would you know how to react? Sometimes what may seem as an easy decision will be one of the most difficult to make and any wrong move could cost you. The Greenwood Village Police Department wants citizens to be prepared with critical information to know if you ever find yourself in a trying situation that puts you in the wrong place at the wrong time. Knowing proper procedures to follow will be vital to surviving any dangerous situation or confrontation.

BULLYING Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school-aged children that involves actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose. Bullying also includes cyberbullying where a bully can harass, threaten, or humiliate someone by using computers, cell phones, and social networking sites. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time that can be devastating to a child or teenager.

PREVENTION: PARENTS CONSTANT VIGILANCE • Frequent cuts and bruises for which your son/daughter cannot explain. • Having few or no friends. • Coming home with clothes torn. • A fear of walking to school. • Sudden drop in school performance or a decreased interest in school work.

• Most damaging aspect is bullying repetition which leads victim to live in constant fear of where and when the bully will strike next, what they will do, and how far they will go.

STEPS TO DEFEAT A BULLY: RETAIN YOUR SELF-CONTROL AND PRESERVE YOUR SENSE OF SELF • Appearing sad or depressed when your child arrives home from school. If you notice any of these signs with your child, you should talk with him/her immediately and seek assistance from school administrators and the Police.

WHY BULLYING HURTS AND THE IMPACT TO THE VICTIM • The victim is made to feel hurt, angry, afraid, helpless, hopeless, isolated, ashamed, guilty, and even suicidal. • Greater risk of developing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, low sel-esteem, or adult Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). • Victims tend to miss, skip, or drop out of school to avoid being bullied.

Tip #1: Respond As Bullying Is Occurring Walk away and don’t react with anger or retaliate with physical force. Calmly and assertively tell them you are not interested in what they have to say. You are demonstrating that they don’t have control over you. Report every bullying incident to a trusted adult until it stops. If you don’t report it, a bully will often become more and more aggressive.

the long-term effects this behavior can have on a child.

Tip #2: How to Handle a Cyber-Bully Do not respond to cyber-bullying messages and save and print out emails and text messages to document the actions of the cyber-bully. Block the cyber-bully on your phone, IM list, websites, or social media pages and report inappropriate messages to an Internet service provider. Tip #3: Avoid Isolation Reach out to connect with family and friends for support which will boost your resilience against your bully. Find others who share your same values and interests and learn a new sport, join a team or take up a new hobby.

WARNING SIGNS YOUR CHILD IS A BULLY • Frequently becomes violent with others. • Gets into physical or verbal fights with others. • Has extra money or new belongings that cannot be explained. • Is quick to blame others. • Has friends who bully others. • Needs to win or be best at everything.

THE LONG-TERM IMPACT ON THE BULLY It can be difficult for any parent to learn that their child is bullying others. The sooner you address the problem the better chance you have of avoiding

• Have a higher risk of abusing alcohol and other drugs. • Are more likely to get into fights, vandalize property, and drop out of school. • Are twice as likely as their peers to have criminal convictions as adults and four times more likely to be multiple offenders. • Are more likely as adults to be abusive toward their romantic partners, spouses, or children.

HOW TO HELP THE BULLY Bullying is a learned behavior that can be learned from the bully’s experience at home. • Limit the amount of violent content your child is exposed to on TV, movies, and video games. Let your child know you’ll be monitoring his or her use of computers, email, and text messaging. • Educate your child about bullying. Foster empathy and awareness by encouraging your child to look at their actions from the victim’s perspective. Remind your child that bullying can have legal consequences. • Teach your child positive ways to manage stress. • Establish consistent rules of behavior. Make sure your child understands your rules and the punishment for breaking them. • Parents should refrain from aggressive behavior such as abusing your child’s sports coach, swearing at other drivers on the road, humiliating a waitress who makes a mistake, and talking negatively about other students, parents, or teachers. • Seek help from school administrators and Police.

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

IF YOU WITNESS BULLYING • Interrupt it. • Stand next to, or speak up for, the person being bullied. • Ask the bully to stop. • Comfort the person being bullied and offer friendship. • Get help and find an adult who can intervene. For more information, please call the Greenwood Village Police Department at 303-773-2525. GV

TRAIL USERS: WATCH OUT FOR DOGS

Runners, walkers, bicyclists, and equestrians enjoy the 41 miles of trails in Greenwood Village. The Village encourages awareness of trail users about dogs they may encounter. Although most encounters with dogs are harmless, being aware and respectful of all trail users will result in a positive and enjoyable experience for everyone. Pet owners must follow the Village leash law requiring all dogs to be secured with a pet leash in all public areas. The following is a list of suggestions trail users should consider when approaching dogs on trails: •

• • •

• • •

• • • • •

Give your full attention to the trail or roadway. Be aware at all times of other trail users walking or running with their dogs in front and back of you. Never run up to a dog or run away from a dog. Don’t make eye contact with the dog. Some dogs see staring as a threat. If the dog approaches you, stop and stand very still. Don’t yell or make any sudden movements. In a firm, but calm voice, say, “Go home,” “Sit” or “No.” If the dog tries to jump on you, turn to the side and push it off with your forearm. If you keep encountering the same aggressive dog, find a new route and report to Animal Control at 303-773-2525. Always ride to the right and single file. When passing other bikers or pedestrians, let them know your position by shouting something like, “On your left!” When approaching a dog and its master on a trail, yell ahead and alert them to your presence. Ride or run at a far distance from the dog when passing. Be careful when passing to avoid getting tangled with the dog’s retractable leash. Always be prepared to stop. Keep your hands on or close to the brakes. Dogs can be very territorial and their prey instinct is triggered by fast movement, so runners and bicyclists can catch their attention. Even when a dog seems friendly, if the owner isn’t around, it’s best not to approach it.

When approaching from behind, yell ahead to alert the dog owner and the dog of your presence.

Always ride to the right and be careful not to get tangled with the dog's leash.

For more information, please call the Parks, Trails, and Recreation Department at 303-486-5773.

PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG • •

Bring pet waste bags with you when you walk or run. Dog owners, please dispose of pet waste in the trash receptacles provided at all Village parks and along trails.

Bicyclists should always stop and look both ways before crossing the street from a trail.

TRAFFIC SAFETY AROUND OUR SCHOOLS DRIVERS CAUTIONED TO SLOW DOWN AND OBEY TRAFFIC LAWS The Greenwood Village Police Department would like to remind drivers of some safe traffic regulations around our schools: 1) Pay attention to the Flashing Yellow Light. Flashing Yellow Light School Zone areas indicate that traffic must slow down from the beginning of the lights until the next speed limit sign or signage that indicates the school zone has ended. School Zone times vary, and it is the driver’s responsibility to be aware and drive according to the posted signs and lights. 2) Fines are doubled in a school zone. 3) Stop for school buses. Colorado law dictates a driver of a vehicle, upon meeting from either direction any school bus which has stopped and has activated its red flashing lights, is required to stop the vehicle. Drivers do not need to stop for a school bus upon meeting or passing a school bus which is on a different roadway. School bus drivers are authorized to report violators to the appropriate law enforcement agency who may issue a citation on the basis of the information provided. 4) Remember that the sun can obscure your vision any time of the year. Use visors and sunglasses to reduce glare and make it easier to see pedestrians. 5) Pedestrians once in a crosswalk have the right of way. If you maintain a safe speed for conditions and foot traffic you should have plenty of time to slow down and stop safely.

GOT DRUGS? NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG TAKE BACK DAY SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29, 2012 10 A.M.-2 P.M. AT CITY HALL On September 29, 2012, The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will coordinate a collaborative effort with the Greenwood Village Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from every household’s medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Greenwood Village City Hall parking lot, 6060 South Quebec Street. Police Officers will be available

6) When the traffic lights turn yellow it is the time to slow down and prepare to stop. Please don’t drive to beat the lights as they are timed based on the speed limits and traffic. When you rush one light you often just get stopped at the next one. 7) Be patient, be aware. Many people are not in these hurried times. Make sure the intersection is clear of people and traffic before going ahead, even if you do have a green light. 8) Right on Red. Where allowed and not all intersections are clear for right on red, the car at the red light does not have the right of way. Cars turning on arrows, or going with the flow of traffic always have the right of way. Again be aware, don’t force a turn and hurt yourselves or someone else. For more information about traffic safety, please call the Greenwood Village Police Department at 303-773-2525. GV

in the parking lot at City Hall so citizens can simply drive up and drop off their unused prescription drugs. The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety. Here are some guidelines for this oneday effort intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse. • The program is anonymous. • Controlled, non-controlled, and over-the-counter substances may be dropped off.

• All solid dosage pharmaceutical product and liquids in consumer containers, with the exception of chemotherapy drugs, may be accepted. • Liquid products, such as cough syrup, should remain sealed in their original container. • Prescription and over-the-counter solid dosage medications, e.g. tablets and capsules will be accepted. • Intravenous solutions, injectibles, and syringes/needles will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens. • Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.

HAVE LARGE ITEMS THAT CAN’T GO WITH THE TRASH? CALL FOR LARGE ITEM PICKUP

One of the benefits of single family residency in the Village is the large item pickup service for items too large to be picked up with the regular trash service. Currently the Village does not have any restrictions on the number of times or quantity of materials left out for pickup other than it should not be contractor generated. To allow for Village staff to provide residents with the best possible service in the most cost effective manner and without extensive delays, the following items are not accepted for large item pickup. • Commercial or Contractor Generated Waste — including Non-Profit Organizations • Concrete and Asphalt • Roofing and Siding • Fences and Decks • Drywall and Framing

• Landscaping Materials — including Sod, Soil, Mulch, Bark, Rock and Pavers • Tree branches greater than 10 feet in length and done by a contracted service • Items generated from projects requiring a Building Permit — excluding plumbing, mechanical and electrical • Hazardous Materials • Tires The most popular items requested for a large item pickup would be branches or brush removed by the homeowner and cut into sections 10 foot in length or less, unwanted furniture, mattresses and box springs, hot water heaters and rugs. All large items designated for pickup must be scheduled with the Public Works Department at 303-708-6100 before placing at the curb. GV

LEAF RECYCLING SEPTEMBER 24-NOVEMBER 9 VILLAGE GREENS PARK Recycle your leaves at Village Greens Park. Leaves can be dropped off loose or in bags between September 24 and November 9 in the dedicated area of the north parking lot any day of the week. This option is the most environmentally friendly and does not impact the landfill. You do not have to wait until your trash day to dispose of them. Residents who do not participate in the Village’s Leaf Recycling Program are requested not to place loose leaves or yard debris in the street as sweepers are not equipped to pick up large piles of leaves. Moreover, this debris can be wind blown or inappropriately washed into the storm systems and waterways of the Village.

ARTS AND HUMANITIES COUNCIL FUNDS RE-INSTALLATION OF BRONZE DOLPHIN SCULPTURES IN WESTLANDS PARK POND The Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council (GVAHC) partnered with the Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) to reinstall the bronze dolphin sculptures at the pond at Westlands Park. After being removed for restoration, the dolphin sculptures will be reinstalled in the middle pond in Westlands Park in September. The dolphin sculptures were selected and acquired from Galleria Romanelli in Florence, Italy in 1980 by Greenwood Plaza developer John Madden.

Current Maintenance Facility building and site.

PHASE I OF NEW MAINTENANCE FACILITY TO BEGIN IN 2013 In August, the City Council gave preliminary approval of the 2013-2018 Capital Improvement Program (CIP) which included final design for modifications to the Maintenance Facility to house Public Works services. Funding for final design of the Maintenance Facility modifications, included in the 2013-2018 CIP, will be officially approved as part of the Council’s approval of the 2013 Budget in November. “The City Council feels it is the appropriate time, given current economic conditions and the current level and stability of our city reserves, to move forward with final design of the Maintenance Facility modifications,” said Mayor Ron Rakowsky. The current Village Maintenance Facility was built in 1994 to house park and street maintenance services which included 37 regular employees, 19 seasonal workers, and maintenance of 150 vehicles for all Village operations. Due to the increase in the levels of service and investment in infrastructure by the Village starting in 1994 and continuing into the late 1990s, today the maintenance facility is home-base for all Public Works operations, including Engineering that was relocated from City Hall. These Public Works operations are responsible for 220 lane miles of roadways, 193 acres of developed parks, 43 miles of trails, 1.5 acres of floral beds, drainage systems, 254 acres of open space, and 53 acres of streetscape and medians. Current service levels require work by 87 employees, 12 seasonal workers, and maintenance of 251 vehicles for Village operations, including the Police Department. The proposed Maintenance Facility modifications will occur to the existing building and site at 10001 East Costilla Avenue, as well as on the adjacent property at 6810 Emporia Street, which the Village purchased in 2009. Major areas to be addressed as a part of the redesign will include parking, office space, site circulation, and equipment storage to protect the Village’s fleet investment. PG. 14

“For several years, we have had deficiencies in office space and with parking spaces for our employees and customers, to name a few. Modifications to the maintenance facility will create a more productive and efficient work environment and reflect the proper image of the Village with our customers,” added City Manager Jim Sanderson. Since fall 2011, Village staff has worked to develop a conceptual design for improvements to the existing maintenance facility and the adjacent property on Emporia Street. In addition to Public Works services, the modifications will also address storage facility needs for the Police and Parks, Trails, and Recreation departments. This will include renovations at the City Hall location. The final design is estimated to cost $1,250,000 and is scheduled to begin in 2013. Construction of the modifications will occur in three phases, with Phase I planned to begin in 2014. Phase I improvements will occur primarily on the Emporia Site with construction of a new fleet services building to maintain the Village’s fleet of vehicles. Portions of the existing building will be preserved to meet operational needs. Phase I will also include new de-icer storage, canopy, fuel island modification and cold storage. The cost for Phase I is estimated at $7,250,000. For the past several years City Council has been increasing cash reserves in anticipation of completing modifications to the maintenance facility. Funding for final design and Phase I will be paid for by the Village out of the Village’s cash reserves. Funding for the remaining phases has yet to be determined and will require City Council approval in the future. The entire project is estimated to cost $16,000,000. “We pride ourselves in assuring the Village’s public areas are safe, useable, clean, and they promote a beautiful appearance,” said John Sheldon, Director of Public Works. “The modifications to the maintenance facility will help us to continue to deliver the highest quality of services to our residents and businesses long into the future.” For more information, please call John Sheldon, Director of Public Works, at 303-708-6136.

BEAR SAFETY TIPS IF YOU ENCOUNTER A BEAR ON A TRAIL • Stand still, stay calm and let the

BEAR FACTS •

Color: In Colorado, many black bears are blonde, cinnamon, and brown. • Weight: Males average 275 lbs; Females 175 lbs. • Diet: Grasses, berries, fruits, nuts, plants, insects and scavenged carcasses. Bears need 20,000 calories a day to gain enough fat to survive the winter without eating or drinking. • Active: Mid-March through early November. Naturally nocturnal, but sometimes travel at night in hopes of avoiding humans.

bear identify you and leave. Talk in a normal tone of voice. Be sure the bear has an escape route. • Never run or climb a tree. • If you see cubs, their mother is usually close by. Leave the area immediately. • In late summer and fall, bears need to forage up to 20 hours a day, so avoid trails that go through berry patches, oak brush and other natural food sources.

IF THE BEAR DOESN’T LEAVE • A bear standing up is just trying to identify what you are by getting a better look and smell. Wave your arms slowly overhead and talk calmly. If the bear huffs, pops its jaws or stomps a paw, it wants you to give it space. • Step off the trail to the downhill side, keep looking at the bear and slowly back away until the bear is out of sight.

SMOKE ALARM SAFETY TIPS Smoke alarms save lives. Almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and you need smoke alarms to give you time to get out. • Install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. • An ionization smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires, and a photoelectric smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both alarms (photoelectric and ionization) should be installed in homes. • Test alarms at least monthly by pushing the test button. • Smoke rises; install smoke alarms following manufacturer’s instructions high on a wall or on a ceiling. • Replace batteries in all smoke alarms at least once a year. If an alarm “chirps,” warning the battery is low, replace the battery right away. • Alarms that are hard-wired (and include battery backup) must be installed by a qualified electrician. • If cooking fumes or steam set off nuisance alarms, replace PG.18

GV N E W S L E T T E R | S E P T E M B E R 2 0 1 2

IF THE BEAR APPROACHES • A bear knowingly approaching a person could be a food-conditioned bear looking for a handout or, very rarely, an aggressive bear. Stand your ground. Yell or throw small rocks in the direction of the bear. • If you’re attacked, don’t play dead. Fight back with anything available. People have successfully defended themselves with pen knives, trekking poles, and even bare hands. GV

the alarm with an alarm that has a “hush” button. A “hush” button will reduce the alarm’s sensitivity for a short period of time. • An ionization alarm with a hush button or a photoelectric alarm should be used if the alarm is within 20 feet of a cooking appliance. • Smoke alarms that include a recordable voice announcement in addition to the usual alarm sound, may be helpful in waking children through the use of a familiar voice. • Smoke alarms are available for people who are deaf or hard of hearing. These devices use strobe lights. Vibration devices can be added to these alarms. GV

YOUR SMOKE ALARM HAS AN EXPIRATION DATE Most smoke alarms are only designed to last between eight and 10 years. After this time, the entire unit should be replaced. Tip: Write the date of purchase with a marker on the inside of your alarm so you will know when to replace it.


GENERAL INTEREST

MOUNTAIN LION SAFETY There are many species of wildlife which live in the open space areas, parks trails and undeveloped areas of Greenwood Village. Most of the time people and wildlife can coexist without any problems. The key to avoiding conflict with wildlife is to remember wildlife is wild. Occasionally we may have a mountain lion travel through the Village. Certain conditions such as drought or heat may cause these cats to extend their hunting range in search of their prey, which is deer. Mountain lions are most active from dusk to dawn. Mountain lions are generally calm and do not like to be around people. Lion attacks on people are quite rare. Most of the attacks are by young lions that are forced out on their own and do not yet have an established area. Younger lions are more likely to focus on easier prey such as pets.

PREVENT AN ENCOUNTER AT YOUR HOME • Don’t Feed Wildlife — By feeding deer, raccoons, or other wildlife in your yard, you will inadvertently attract mountain lions, which prey upon them. • Deer Proof Your Landscape — Avoid using plants that deer prefer to eat; if your landscaping attracts deer, mountain lions may be close by. • Landscape for Safety — Remove dense and/or low-lying vegetation that would provide good hiding places for mountain lions, especially around children’s play areas. • Install Outdoor Lighting — Keep the perimeter of your house well lit at night to keep any mountain lions visible. • Keep Pets Secure — Roaming pets are easy prey for hungry mountain lions. Either bring pets inside or keep them in a kennel with a secure

top. Don’t feed pets outside; this can attract raccoons and other mountain lion prey. • Keep Children Safe — Keep a close watch on children whenever they play outdoors. Make sure children are inside before dusk and not outside before dawn. Talk with children about mountain lions and teach them what to do if they encounter one. • The key to avoiding wildlife encounters is keeping unwanted wildlife out of your home and yard.

IF YOU ENCOUNTER A MOUNTAIN LION • You want the lion to realize you are not prey and make it feel it is in danger. • Do Not Run From A Lion — Running may stimulate a mountain lion’s instinct to chase. Instead, stand and face the animal. Make eye contact. Stay calm, talk firmly to it and move slowly back, do not run and/or turn your back to the mountain lion. If you have small children with you, pick them up if possible so they do not panic and

run. Although it may be awkward, pick them up without bending over or turning away from the mountain lion. Walk back slowly. • Do Not Approach a Lion — Most mountain lions will try to avoid a confrontation. Give them a way to escape. • Do All You Can To Appear Larger — Raise your arms, open your jacket, throw stones and branches, or whatever you can reach without crouching or turning your back. Wave your arms slowly and speak firmly in a loud voice. The idea is to convince the mountain lion you may be a danger to it. Do not crouch down or bend over. • Fight Back If Attacked — Fight back with rocks, sticks, caps, jackets, garden tools, and your hands. Since a mountain lion usually bites the head or neck, try to remain standing and face the attacking animal.
