MAYOR RON PUBLIC WORKS DAY

Over the past 15 years, more than a thousand children have walked through the doors of the Village Maintenance Facility to learn about Public Works services. This year’s Public Works Day was another successful event where our Public Works staff educated young people from Belleview Elementary. As you will read on page 17, the employees of Public Works opened their facility to teach our youth about what they do to make the Village clean, safe, and beautiful. As we transition from winter/spring to summer, please join me in extending our appreciation to the entire staff of Public Works. Whether they are a maintenance worker, administrative assistant, mechanic, engineer, or inspector, this group of men and women dedicate their work every day to maintain and enhance the quality of life in Greenwood Village. We enjoy the best Ron Rakowsky roadways in the metro area, beautiful parks, and rrakowsky@ clean trails because of the dedication of greenwoodvillage.com 303-486-5741 employees of Public Works. Thank you Public Works for making a difference in the lives of the people who live, work, and visit our community every day.

GVPD AND CHERRY CREEK SCHOOL DISTRICT WORK TOGETHER FOR SAFETY In an effort to improve the safety of the nearly 5,000 students, faculty, and staff of the Cherry Creek School District (CCSD) campus, including Cherry Creek High School, Campus Middle School, Belleview Elementary, and District headquarters, our Police Department is working with other law enforcement agencies and officials of the CCSD to improve the overall safety of the campus. One project in particular is to upgrade the District’s emergency notification system. Currently there are five School Resource Officers who receive text messages on their cell phones when there is an emergency issue at any Cherry Creek facility located in the Village. This is an early warning alert system intended to give police officers real time information as the school receives it. In order to be prepared for any emergency situation, our Police Department continues to work with Aurora PD and Arapahoe County Sheriff ’s Department, along with officials from CCSD to enhance and implement resources in safety issues at Village schools where they will be the most effective. The most efficient response is the one for which you are prepared. PG. 2

BICYCLISTS, EQUESTRIANS AND PEDESTRIANS REMINDED TO USE PROPER ETIQUETTE Many trails in Greenwood Village are multi-use to accommodate bicyclists and pedestrians and even equestrians in specified areas of the Village. I know when I walk the trails it is more fun to walk side-by-side to talk with your walking buddy than to walk single file. However, please be aware that taking up the whole trail makes it difficult for bicyclists and equestrians to pass safely. Stay to the right and close to your walking partners. If you are a bicyclist, please be courteous to other users, keep right when possible, and verbally alert others when you are approaching to pass. The speed limit on Village trails is a maximum of 15 mph depending on conditions. Lastly, equestrians should always be aware of trail

WELCOME MERRICK AND COMPANY The City Council, staff, and I welcome Merrick and Company to Greenwood Village. Merrick and Company relocated its corporate headquarters to Greenwood Village earlier this year. We are ecstatic that Merrick and Company chose our beautiful Village and the Greenwood Plaza business park as their new location where they will grow and thrive.

KUNI LEXUS NOW OPEN In May, we celebrated the opening of Kuni Lexus of Greenwood Village at its brand new luxurious location on the southeast corner of East Belleview and South Quebec Street. This new state-of-the-art dealership provides a gateway gem enhancement to the Village and represents the type of high quality development we strive to attract to Greenwood Village. The 6.16 acre parcel included construction of a 194,808 square foot three story building for the retail sales and service operations of the dealership, including 52 service bays that will service over 100 vehicles per day. The parking garage will be used primarily for the storage of new vehicles, while new and previously owned vehicles will be part of the landscaped outdoor display. The contemporary design of the building presents a country club concept of amenities for customers that will include a media room, customer lounges, and a second story “green roof ” balcony. Kuni Lexus of Greenwood Village brings 100 jobs to our local economy. I encourage all of you, if you haven’t already had a chance, to stop by Kuni Lexus of Greenwood Village and see what makes this dealership feel like a five-star hotel.

DENVER WATER DELAYS DROUGHT PRICING ON YOUR BILL Denver Board of Water Commissioners decided to change drought pricing for water. Drought pricing was scheduled to appear on bills beginning June 1 and is designed to encourage customers to use even less water and help reduce revenue losses due to lower consumption. Based on the Board’s action in May, drought pricing has been postponed until July 1, 2013. They said their decision was influenced by the wet spring and water saving habits practiced by customers. Depending on how much water makes its way to the reservoirs, Denver Water suggests they may change their drought response from Stage 2 to Stage 1, which would

cancel drought pricing entirely. This decision will not be made until they have a better appreciation of the current reservoir levels and summer conditions after runoff is over in late June or early July. I have met with the CEO of Denver Water on behalf of citizens and will continue to follow all announcements by Denver Water on the drought to keep citizens informed. In the interim, I thank all of our residents and businesses for doing their part to conserve water whenever and wherever possible.

SUMMERTIME IN THE VILLAGE Now that the weather is officially moving into summer this month, this is a great time to enjoy the outdoors in Greenwood Village. Many of our fabulous restaurants have outdoor patios with terrific views that would make for a great breakfast, lunch or dinner while catching some sun. Don’t forget to mark your calendar for Tuesdays this summer for Concerts at the Crescent. This year there is a wonderful lineup of bands that will keep you dancing. You can find the band schedule on our Website at www.greenwoodvillage.com. Take some time to enjoy some of our parks and trails. They make for a fun outing for a picnic with the entire family or an opportunity for you to enjoy some alone time, under a tree reading your favorite book, tablet or iPad. GV

BELLEVIEW AVENUE CORRIDOR STUDY AND I-25 INTERCHANGE PROJECT PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 19 AT CITY HALL Citizens are invited to attend a public open house on Wednesday, June 19, 2013, from 4-7 p.m. at Greenwood Village City Hall, 6060 South Quebec Street. The purpose of the meeting is to present proposed findings of the Belleview Avenue Corridor Study, and solicit comments from the public regarding recommendations for improvements to the study area and the Belleview and I-25 interchange. The study is expected to be completed in the Fall of 2013.

WHAT’S THE PROBLEM? TRAFFIC CHALLENGES AND CONCERNS The Belleview Avenue Corridor impacts traffic congestion in the

southeast area. The corridor experiences heavy traffic throughout the day, with high traffic volumes in the morning, noon and evening peak periods. Nearly 50,000 vehicles per day utilize the Belleview Avenue Corridor to travel through Greenwood Village, Denver, Cherry Hills Village and unincorporated Arapahoe County. These traffic volumes are expected to increase to 60,000 by 2035 created by commercial, residential and retail development. The existing interchange design at I-25 and Belleview Avenue will not be able to accommodate these future traffic demands.

THE STUDY The Belleview Avenue Corridor Study is under way to help plan for future improvements that will relieve congestion at the interchange and along the corridor. The study will also address safety concerns, improve access and mobility for transit users and people who may bike or walk along the corridor. Planning now for future development will allow for a safe and reliable roadway, and minimize impacts on local businesses and residents. The Belleview Avenue Corridor Plan includes the area of Belleview Avenue from Monaco Street

on the west to DTC Boulevard on the east, including the I-25 interchange.

PROPOSED ALTERNATIVES A series of improvements have been considered and screened for their ability to alleviate traffic congestion, improve public safety, cost feasibility, and other important factors. Alternatives were categorized as being either interchange-related, west-side related (west of the I-25 southbound ramp intersection), or east-side related (east of the I-25 northbound ramp intersection). Alternatives will be available to view and comment on at the open house, and on the project website after the open house.

PROJECT UPDATES For more information on the progress of the Study, public meetings, or how to provide input on proposed alternatives, please visit the project’s website at http://www.co.arapahoe.co .us/Departments/PW/Transportation/ Belleview/belleview.asp or call Tom Reiff, Transportation Planner at 303-486-5748 or email at treiff@greenwoodvillage.com.

PUBLIC MEETING WILLIAM MCKINLEY CARSON PARK POND EDGE IMPROVEMENTS THURSDAY, JUNE 20, 7 P.M. AT CITY HALL Citizens are invited to attend a public meeting on Thursday, June 20 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall to learn about and provide comments on the proposed design concept for improvements to the pond at William McKinley Carson Park. The pond at William McKinley Carson Park is a wonderful amenity to the park. However, over the years, the pond edge has significantly eroded away leaving unsafe conditions for the Village’s maintenance crews and users of the park. The Village has begun design work on a project to construct a hardened edge around the pond at William McKinley Carson Park in order to prevent future bank erosion and minimize the possibility of collapse. For more information on this project, please contact Suzanne Moore, Public Works Manager, at 303-708-6142 or email smoore@greenwoodvillage.com.

Traffic delays are expected and lanes will need to be closed periodically throughout the duration of the project to accommodate the construction.

Improvements have begun at University Boulevard and Belleview Avenue. Construction started in May with work by Denver Water’s contractor to replace water valves in and around the intersection. Upon completion of this project, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin a resurfacing project to improve roadway quality and drainage in June and will continue Work under way at University and Belleview.

ENHANCING OUR

community

SUMMERTIME IS IN THE AIR… LET THE HOME IMPROVEMENTS BEGIN As summer approaches, you may be thinking about home improvement projects. Here’s what you need to know before beginning your project. Q: What projects require a building permit? A: A permit is generally required for any new building, addition, alteration, repair, change in use of an existing building or structure, site improvements, some landscaping, outdoor living amenities including patios, fire pits, hot tubs, swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, decks, pergolas and water features. Residential dwelling unit examples may include re-roof, interior remodel, window replacement, water heater replacement, fences, basement finish, decks, patio covers and sheds. Permits are not required for painting, floor covering or other similar finish work. Please submit your building permit application to the Community Development Department before you begin any work. Q: Why do I need a permit? A: The Community Development Department is dedicated to protecting the health, safety and well-being of the community by ensuring that all construction is completed consistent with safety standards.

The permit process assures the appropriate use of land through the enforcement of zoning ordinance and the safety of residents through enforcement of the building codes. Q: What types of drawings, plans, site plans, or other paper work are required? A: Please contact the Community Development Department for specific submission requirements. Small, simple projects require minimum documentation. Larger projects require more detailed information. Q: I have a Home Owners Association. Will they need to be contacted for approval? A: You should contact your HOA to understand their review process. Your permit application to the City of Greenwood Village is independent from the HOA approval process. Q: When should I apply for a permit? A: You may apply for a building permit at any time. The City recommends that you have a complete understanding of your HOA requirements before submitting your permit application to the City. Q: How long will the permitting process take? A: The Community Development Department works quickly to respond to your permit application. For example, complete submissions for residential re-roof, landscape or interior remodel permits are usually reviewed within three business days. Residential decks or additions are generally reviewed within five business days.

Q: How much will the building permit cost? A: Permit fees are calculated based upon the valuation of the proposed project. Building fees include a permit fee, a plan review fee and building materials use tax. All fees are paid prior to the issuance of the building permit. Q: How is Building Materials Use Tax calculated? A: Building materials use tax is calculated based on the valuation of the proposed project, which includes the total cost of the project, including building materials, labor, overhead expenses, and profit. The building materials use tax is 3.25%, of which 3% is the Village’s Use Tax and 0.25% is designated to Arapahoe County Open Space Tax. The estimated tax due is 3.25% of 60% of the cost of construction. The first $3,500 of building material is exempt. Tax-exempt entities such as government agencies and religious and charitable organizations are exempt from the building materials use tax. If you still have questions about planning your home improvement project, please contact the Community Development Department. The Community Development Department staff is available to meet with customers on Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. at Greenwood Village City Hall, 6060 South Quebec Street; by telephone at 303-486-5783; or email comdev@greenwoodvillage.com.

DEVELOPMENT IN GREENWOOD

BUSINESSES MAKING SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS

IN REVIEW

Greenwood Village is one of Colorado’s most desirable communities for business. Despite the weakened economy a few years ago, today Greenwood Village continues to remain a preferred choice for business. “One of our goals at Greenwood Village is to maintain a high quality business environment where we can retain our existing businesses, as well as attract new businesses to our community,” said Mayor Ron Rakowsky. “We continue to see positive shifts in our businesses community with new retail stores and restaurants, business expansions, and corporate relocations which are excellent indicators that our Village economy is improving.” Home to world class business parks, the Denver Technological Center, Greenwood Plaza, and Village Center, comprising elite Fortune 500 companies and highly successful medium size and small businesses, the Village’s refreshing and innovative business environment continues to attract some big names for business. For 2013, the Village has a number of redevelopment and development projects in the works that will facilitate new jobs and economic growth for the Village and the region. “It is a busy time for our Village,” said Jim Sanderson, City Manager. “We have residential and office development, redevelopment projects, large tenant finishes, new restaurants, and a five-star hotel development proposed for the east side of I-25 at the Arapahoe at Village Center Station. We are optimistic that more great projects will continue to be proposed for our community in the months and years ahead.” Greenwood Village offers a high quality business environment. As an economic leader in the Denver area and south metro region, the Village is a regional focal point for people, activity and business offering easy light rail access with three stations, an educated work force with two of the top-performing public school districts in the state, and a variety of reputable higher learning institutions. Some of the best commercial Class A and B office space with mountain views adjacent to light rail, quality of services including a proactive, business friendly Police Department, an abundance of beautiful parks, trails, and open spaces, and roadways and infrastructure noted as the best in the metro area — have all contributed to making the Village the number one choice on the list for businesses to invest in relocating, expanding, or keeping their business in Greenwood Village.

Every project, large or small, is guided by community values for high quality as each project aims to be a showcase of the community. Building appearance, neighborhood impacts, protection and preservation of natural areas, parking, landscaping, access perimeter for the property, lighting, and safety of the built environment are some of the major factors which play a significant role in every project’s review continued on page 13

continued from page 13 project of which we can both be proud.” For any development project, site development plan reviews by Village staff require detailed professional drawings and engineered reports to study the impacts of a development including traffic and drainage management. Applications must detail both existing and proposed improvements to the site, elevations of the new building, facade materials, parking plans and calculations, street accesses and design, screening and landscaping improvements, designated open space improvements and show all changes intended for the site or structures. The Site Development Plan review establishes how a project does or does not comply with applicable codes and regulations, assesses the project’s elements of design and function, identifies necessary referrals to other public agencies, and provides an analysis of the project’s consistency with the Village’s Comprehensive Plan, Land Development Code standards and provides recommendations as a result of the staff ’s assessment to Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council, for consideration. The public is notified of the development applications and invited to voice their concerns or comments at the public hearings before the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council. Upon final approval of the development by the City Council, the developer can proceed to the construction phase. The building permit review and inspection process ensures that the approved development plan is followed during construction. “The site development plan includes an illustration of how the proposed development will look once it is developed,” said Weaver. “At Greenwood Village, we do not rubber stamp any developments. We want every development project to have that special curb appeal and blend with the look and feel of our community.” Greenwood Village takes a proactive approach to work with members of the business community to learn about their needs of operating a business in the Village. Whether it is initiating dialogue with representatives of businesses in Greenwood Village, or reaching out to executives of companies involved in making business decisions to relocate, the City Council, staff, and citizens appreciate the significant investments the business community makes to the overall quality of life of Greenwood Village. “Greenwood Village is very enticing for us,” said Gregg Stone, President and General Manager, Kuni Lexus of Greenwood Village. “Kuni Lexus and Greenwood Village share many common attributes which we strongly believe make for a great marriage of equals. We really believe we put the right building in the right community.” If you own or manage a business already located here, or are considering relocating to the Village and have questions or need some assistance, please call the City Manager’s Office at 303-486-5745.

THE NEST SCULPTURE FINDS ITS HOME IN GV ANOTHER PUBLIC ART PIECE INSTALLED AT WESTLANDS PARK The Greenwood Village Arts & Humanities Council (GVAHC) partnered with the Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) to install The Nest sculpture at Westlands Park in June.

The Nest sculpture, previously located at the Republic Plaza in downtown Denver, has a new home beginning in June at Westlands Park at the lower pond fishing dock adjacent to the bench area. Westlands Park was chosen by the MOA as the ideal location for the art piece due to the park’s reputation for being a regional

destination and to join other pieces of art already displayed at the park from the MOA’s collection. The Nest, designed by local artist Erick C. Johnson, stands more than 15 feet high and is made of steel and powdercoated sheet metal. The MOA commissioned the artist to create the $60,000 sculpture. According to its artist, throughout our natural world,

and among many different species of birds, fish, insects and mammals, a nest is an amazing, instinctively created environment for raising a family. It not only serves as a shield from the elements, but as a fortress against other threatening natural predators. Nesting is a communal force for pair of animals, so they may establish a safe haven to raise, protect and nurture their young. This protective habitat can also be a sanctuary for rest, revitalization and comfort. The installation of The Nest is a result of an agreement between the Village and the MOA of which the MOA agreed to fund installation, insurance and annual maintenance at no cost to the Village. The sculpture is on loan with the Village until 2015, with an option of the Village extending the installation until 2017. The City Council approved the installation of The Nest at the April 15, 2013 City Council meeting. Their approval was based on a Public Art Policy adopted by the City Council in 2011 which established procedures for the selection, placement and maintenance of public art in parks, trails and open space areas in Greenwood Village.

USE YOUR GREENWOOD VILLAGE ADDRESS Greenwood Village businesses and residents often pay a higher, incorrect sales tax. Many vendors do not realize they are making deliveries into Greenwood Village because Englewood is often included as part of the mailing address. As a result, the higher Englewood rate (7.75%) is often charged. Deliveries into the Village should have a total of 7.25% sales tax applied. If you have been charged another jurisdictions sales tax rate, here is what you need to do: 1) Inform your suppliers that you are in Greenwood Village; 2) Use the “Greenwood Village” name in your mailing address; and 3) Do not pay an incorrect Sales Tax. If a tax rate other than 7.25% appears on purchases delivered into Greenwood Village, inform your suppliers of the error.

BUSINESS TCBY – THE COUNTRY’S BEST YOGURT

TCBY — The Country’s Best Yogurt was born from a discovery that nutritious and healthy frozen yogurt could also be unbelievably delicious! With the country embracing healthier eating styles, TCBY founders Frank and Georgia Hickingbotham pioneered the yogurt business with the opening of their first store in 1981. They believed that an exciting new yogurt product could be an option to ice cream treats. A visit to TCBY in the Village will be a most convenient, affordable, and tasty experience…...and nutritious as well! Rick and Keri Green are the proud owners of the TCBY self-serve frozen yogurt shop that opened in the Arapahoe Marketplace on July 1, 2011. They were looking for something that would combine a focus on health with a love of working with people. “We looked at a lot of franchises,” Keri explains. “and we settled on TCBY because we grew up on it!” The longevity of the TCBY brand is what sparked Keri and Rick to select TCBY over all the other frozen yogurt franchises. After a tee-ball game, dance recital, or baseball practice in the Village TCBY has become a haven to relax and enjoy an outstanding selection of treats. TCBY has recently had an aesthetic overhaul to reflect bright, bold, and whimsical colors. Modern comfortable furniture, three flat-screen TVs, spacious outdoor seating, and “the only self-serve TCBY in Denver” make your experience delightful. But it’s the frozen yogurt and other treats that bring you back again and again.

The store features six machines making up to 18 flavor combinations along with a bar of 60 toppings. The self-serve model of yogurt was born over five years ago.

about everyone. White Chocolate Mousse is their mainstay flavor along with Vanilla, Chocolate, Sorbet, Fruit, and at least one “No Sugar Added” option. Flavors typically change each and every month. In May 2011, TCBY launched Super Fro-Yo, a reformulated version of its yogurt with a more nutrient-rich profile and a rich creamy texture and taste. Fiber, Probiotics, Vitamin D, Calcium and Protein comprise the Super Fro-Yo nutrients, making a yogurt that improves your overall sense of well-being. The Greenwood Village TCBY also has a popular YO2GO frozen yogurt “takeaway” freezer case, offering numbers of prepackaged frozen yogurt in a variety of flavors and sizes. In addition, pies and cakes for you to take home are also offered along with custom decorating and catering. Gluten free, low fat, and fat free options are also offered. A very popular and newly introduced flavor is Greek Honey Vanilla, containing twice the amount of protein per serving. Their “Shiver Maker” combines toppings and flavors of your choice into a mixed treat. “The Arapahoe Center is so accessible to customers,” said Keri. The center being home to some of the biggest brands in the retail marketplace was also a major factor influencing their decision to locate in the Village. Rick adds, “Our upbeat, vibrant, and family friendly store appeals to everyone from babies to senior citizens.” TCBY in the Village has had a positive and rewarding relationship with the community by supporting school fundraisers, Arapahoe Library District kids book club program, and donating to non-profit events. Keri and Rick have promoted environmentally conscious in-store practices with the use of all recycled products and special HVAC systems. The Village location also sells a variety of Tote Bags and T-shirts, and each time continued on page 24

DTC | GREENWOOD VILLAGE CHAMBER A new day and a new season are blossoming for the DTC | Greenwood Village Chamber, as the organization steps out of an exciting spring and prepares for a full slate of vibrant summer events that will showcase how great it is to live in Colorado. April wrapped up with two great events: the relaunch of the DTC | Greenwood Village Chamber on April 25 at Zink Bar+Kitchen at the DoubleTree Denver Tech. It was an exciting event that unveiled a new logo and website that represents the new attitude and energy of the revitalized the DTC | Greenwood Village Chamber. The other key event in April was a Town Hall Luncheon on April 30 featuring Mike Coffman, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Colorado. Congressman Coffman addressed a crowd of more than 50 business leaders to discuss key issues in Washington that will impact Colorado businesses, such as health care reform, tax legislation and ongoing budgetary issues. It was a lively and informative discussion and an incredible opportunity for “face time” with one of Colorado’s national legislators.

Village Chamber of Commerce partners with the Rollin’ Dreams Foundation for the Rollin’ Dreams Summer Festival, a celebration of all things cars and summer that will feature an up close look at 125 of the coolest, most spectacular classic cars in and around Denver. Proceeds from the Rollin’ Dreams Summer Festival will benefit the Rollin’ Dreams Foundation that was formed in honor of Austin Williams. Austin was a student at ThunderRidge High School who battled Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer and had a major passion for classic cars. His dying wish was to own his “dream car,” a 1972 Chevy Chevelle. Thanks to the generosity of many in the community, Austin was able to live out his dream before his passing in March of 2013. He and his family formed the “Rollin’ Dreams Foundation” to share his passion for cars and provide activities and distractions for kids fighting cancer. Since a car show has been a part of past DTC | Greenwood Village Chamber Summer Festivals, partnering with the Rollin’ Dreams Foundation was an easy decision.

Mayor Ron Rakowsky and Congressman Mike Coffman

“When we first were introduced to Austin and his family, we, like everybody, were inspired by the passion they had for cars and for helping other families,” said DTC | Greenwood Village Chamber-CEO, John Herbers. “The collection of cars and all of the fun activities at the Summer Festival will be a fantastic tribute to Austin and will celebrate his vision of using these incredible machines to benefit other young people going through what he did.”
