Message from the Mayor - March 19
Dear Residents and Businesses of Greenwood Village,
The health and safety of the Greenwood Village community is our highest priority. We are all concerned about the spread of COVID-19 and we want to minimize the likelihood that it spreads in our community. As we continue to monitor this rapidly evolving pandemic, Village staff and I are in constant contact with federal, state and local agencies to share resources and information. At the local level, Greenwood Village has partnered with Arapahoe County and its’ jurisdictions to combat COVID-19, through the formation of a County Wide Incident Emergency Management Command System, which includes an array of agencies, law enforcement, and key personnel from every city.
As we work together to find ways to help one another stay safe and healthy, City Manager John Jackson and I have taken the following steps, focusing on the health and well-being of our residents, businesses, visitors, and Village employees. Please note the information and dates provided herein may be updated, as we respond accordingly to protect the public and our Village employees’ health.
- Essential services continue to be provided include: police services, trash, recycling, large item pickup, snow removal, park maintenance, building permits and inspections. If you have questions or need assistance from a department, please call the main number at 303-773-0252; for emergencies, please call 911. You can also email us.
- City facilities are limited to only employees until at least March 30. This includes, but is not limited to, public business and activities at City Hall (including Municipal Court) and our Maintenance Facility. Please note the Curtis Center for the Arts is temporarily closed.
- All recreational events, programs, and classes have been canceled through April 12. Sadly, this includes the Branch and Poppy’s Eggstravaganza that was scheduled for April 9th. We will issue refunds for all cancelled programs, activities and classes that are effected by the safety guidelines. Please call 303-486-5773 or email should you have questions.
- A newly created City webpage (on our Website) is now available to provide updated information and resources that may be helpful to residents and businesses.
- Greenwood Village Municipal Court cases set between March 18-April 29, 2010 have been continued.
If you have a court date set in that time period, a letter has gone out with your new court date. If you have not received your letter by April 1, 2020, please call the Court at 303-773-6033.
- To support our Village restaurants, we have created a list of establishments that continue to offer takeout, delivery or curbside services. You can find the list on the Village Website. We are constantly updating this resource for your convenience. In addition, we encourage everyone to please support all of our businesses during this time. Many of them are creating unique ways to continue to provide services while adhering to safe practices.
- We are committed to remain responsive to the needs of our business community. Organizations that find themselves affected by COVID-19 and who, as a result, cannot meet their filing and payment deadlines should contact the City’s Revenue Manager at 303-486-8291 or email.
As we tread in a time of uncertainty, we remain optimistic that we will return to normalcy. Collaboration and compassion have become a part of our journey. We need to work together to ensure everyone’s well-being during this public health crisis. We must all do our part and follow all safety guidelines to prevent this virus from spreading. Please continue to practice social distancing, reducing social gatherings to no more than 10 people, and practicing good hygiene.
Mayor George E. Lantz
