Due to the observance of Martin Luther King day on January 16, this year January 17 is the final deadline for submitting reimbursements for the previous year. There are NO Exceptions to this deadline. If sending your reimbursement in by mail, it must be post marked by the 17th. Submittal of receipts may occur throughout the year in which the purchase was made, not the year in which the activity takes place.

Support Art through Your Recreation Reimbursement Refund!
On November 4, 2013 at the City Council Study Session, City Council reached general consensus to place a donation box on the recreation reimbursement form. Residents now have the option to donate all or a portion of their recreation reimbursement refund to the Greenwood Village Arts and Humanities Council (GVAHC) for the purpose of acquiring and placing art in public parks, trails, open spaces and facilities owned by the Village.
The GVAHC has been instrumental in bringing public art to the Village; recent pieces include the re-installation of the “The Dolphins” and the installation of the “The Nest.” Both sculptures are on loan from the Museum of Outdoor Art and located in Westlands Park.
In addition to bringing public art to the Village, the GVAHC sponsors public programs, art workshops, annual fundraisers, and is responsible for awarding art scholarships to Arapahoe County Seniors majoring in one of the art disciplines at an arts college.
Residents interested in learning more about the GVAHC are encouraged to attend their monthly meetings held at the Curtis Arts & Humanities Center (2349 East Orchard Road, Greenwood Village) on the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m.
