DEVELOPMENT

IN A GROWING ECONOMY, HOW DO WE PLAN FOR  THE RIGHT AMOUNT AND TYPE OF DEVELOPMENT WE WANT IN GREENWOOD VILLAGE? OUR CITY VALUES SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS  ABOVE ALL, BUT IS THERE A PLACE FOR  LIMITED HIGH-END TOWN HOMES OR CONDOMINIUMS FOR LONG-TIME RESIDENTS WHOSE CHILDREN HAVE GROWN? WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO MAKE SURE WE CONTINUE TO ATTRACT THE FIRST-CLASS EMPLOYERS WHO ARE THE BACKBONE OF OUR COMMERCIAL ECONOMY? WHAT IS THE RIGHT MIX AND TYPE OF RETAIL FOR OUR VILLAGE, AS THE ONLINE ONSLAUGHT OVERTAKES BRICK-AND-MORTAR STORES?


PARKS AND TRAILS

IN A TOTAL AREA OF 8 SQUARE MILES, GREENWOOD VILLAGE CONTAINS 22 SEPARATE PARKS ON 280 ACRES, 47 MILES OF PATHS AND TRAILS, AND ANOTHER 200 ACRES OF OPEN SPACE. HOW DO WE ENSURE THAT THE SERENITY AND UNIQUE LIFESTYLE AFFORDED BY OUR UNPARALLELED NATURAL RESOURCES IS MAINTAINED AND STRENGTHENED FOR GENERATIONS TO COME?


TRANSPORTATION AND TRAFFIC

GREENWOOD VILLAGE HAS ALWAYS TAKEN A STRONG STANCE ON CONTROLLING TRAFFIC ON ITS OWN STREETS. AS UNBRIDLED GROWTH  CONTINUES IN OUR STATE AND IN OUR AREA?  WHAT PLANNING POLICIES SHOULD WE ADOPT TO ENSURE THAT THE RESIDENTS OF GREENWOOD VILLAGE CAN TRAVEL SMOOTHLY TO AND FROM THEIR JOBS, THEIR SCHOOLS, AND THEIR HOMES? HOW DO WE INTERACT WITH OTHER GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES TO IMPACT TRANSPORTATION AND TRAFFIC DECISIONS THAT AFFECT US?


FINANCIAL

WITH A $48 MILLION ANNUAL BUDGET, GREENWOOD VILLAGE HAS NO DEBT WHATSOEVER. WHAT ARE THE ISSUES WE MUST CONSIDER TO MAINTAIN OUR STRONG FINANCIAL FOOTING AS WE MOVE INTO THE FUTURE? OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH BY ANNEXATION ARE FEW. HOW DO WE USE THE ASSETS WE HAVE MOST EFFECTIVELY?


CITY SERVICES

GREENWOOD VILLAGE PROVIDES UNEQUALED CITY SERVICES TO ITS RESIDENTS. WE HAVE A STAFF THAT IS HIGHLY EDUCATED AND TRAINED, DEDICATED TO THE CITIZENS OF THIS COMMUNITY, AND TO THE QUALITY OF LIFE OUTCOMES AND EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE WE VALUE. HOW DO WE MAINTAIN THOSE VALUABLE TRAITS INTO THE FUTURE?
