Cherry Creek Village South Traffic Calming Program

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Cherry Creek Village South Neighborhood Traffic Calming Program was initiated in September 2019. Residents raised concerns about speeding and cut through traffic in the neighborhood. Village staff investigated and collected speed and cut-through data in October of 2019. That data did not show a speeding problem in the neighborhood, but it did show a high percentage of cut-through volume.

On May 2, 2022, Greenwood Village City Council approved several actions that will facilitate the safe movement of vehicular and pedestrian traffic in the neighborhood. This letter is to notify residents of the upcoming enforcement of the new restrictions beginning on Monday, August 15, 2022.

School Zones

New school zones have been created on E. Chenango Avenue from Yosemite Street to S. Beeler Street and from S. Chester Street to S. Clinton Street. The speed limit within the school zones has been reduced from 25 MPH to 20 MPH and is effective Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Parking/Stopping Restrictions

Parking/stopping restrictions have also been implemented on E. Chenango Avenue adjacent to Chenango Park and at the intersection of E. Chenango Avenue and S. Clinton Street. Vehicles are prohibited to stop and drop off students at these locations.

Time-of-Day Right Turn Prohibition

A right turn prohibition will be implemented for westbound E. Belleview Avenue to S. Beeler Street. The turn prohibition will be effective Monday through Friday from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM. As a result, vehicles will not be able to make a right turn onto S. Beeler Street from westbound E. Belleview Avenue. Please note that residents who live in the Cherry Creek Village South neighborhood will not be exempt from this turn prohibition. This is a temporary turn restriction and the signs will be taken down on October 14th.

A map of the new restrictions has been included on the Village Voices page. Please be aware of the new signage in the neighborhood that designates these locations. Greenwood Village Police will begin enforcement of the changes on August 15, 2022. There will be a brief education period before Greenwood Village Police will begin issuing citations.

    Hi. Just wondering why the traffic counter on Beeler was installed once the seniors were done with the school year. seems that counting car traffic after the bulk of the school drivers through the neighborhood are done with school will not give true reflection of the situation.

    ShariCFox asked 2 months ago

    Thank you for your question. A speed study was conducted prior to the installation of the temporary speed humps. A second speed study will be conducted int he fall after school has started.

    I’m confused - you are installing these measures as school is out for summer break - then assessing the measures for the three months that there is no traffic due to school being out? How is that timeline going to give valid information? Thank you

    Palma asked 5 months ago

    We will be installing the traffic calming measures while school is out for summer break, however, the effectiveness will not be measured until school returns for the fall session.

    Can we please extend the school zone to include all of Chenango and Beeler? I fear this broken school zone concept will exacerbate the speeding problem. The mindset will be, "The officers will not be looking for speeders on Beeler because the school zone is the "lucrative" area to patrol." I see no reason why all of Chenango and Beeler shouldn't be a school zone.

    DonIee asked 5 months ago

    We will monitor the effectiveness of the school zones as laid out in the map. If they are not working as intended we can discuss extending them tot he full length of Chenango.

    The proposed No Parking/Stopping and School zones are very limited in area. The afternoon pick up (3:40 to 4pm) parking on Clinton, for example, already extends to Grand Place on most days and beyond that during inclement weather. The restrictions as proposed will likely only push the problem down the road. Is it possible to extend those zones? I support the proposal, but believe the narrowness of the restrictions will limit their effectiveness. Thank you

    We will monitor the effectiveness of the parking/stopping restrictions and will be happy to discuss extending those zones if they are not working.

    It is now 8:00 on a Tuesday morning, I just tested how long it would take to "go around" because of the turn restriction, I passed Beeler going west on Bellview at 7:53, and I arrived in my driveway at 7:55. Two minutes, and I never went over 20MPH.

    Thanks you for your comment.

    It is approaching the end of the month, and I have not seen or heard of any progress. The comments below get one-liners from the city, is anything happening? As I write this, cars are streaming by as if the main thoroughfare; this is a significant safety concern. Is this concern falling yet again on the back burner of the city? This is real "86 cars driving North on Beeler; 25 cars coming from Yosemite. All within 34 minutes." and seriously concerning.

    An update is being mailed out this week and pushed out to those who have registered on Village Voices. Staff were working with the City Attourney to determine if city council action was required for the implementation of the school zone and stopping restrictions. These items will be sent to the City Council for the April Study Session and May City Council meeting. The speed humps will be installed in May after the snow stops falling.

    "Regarding emergency access to CCVS neighborhood, a method of closing Beeler at Belleview to traffic – but not to emergency vehicles" I would like to reinforce my absolute support for this option.

    DonIee asked 6 months ago

    Thank you for your comment. We will keep this option in mind pending the results of the traffic calming devices to be installed in the near future.

    Will there be a synopsis or minutes of the January 26 meeting or is the recording the only way to assess this info?

    CUMom2 asked 6 months ago

    A transcript of the meeting will be uploaded.

    What is the timeline for the implementation of the "temporary" resolutions, including turn restrictions and school zones? Also, I happened to drive down Clarkson south of Bellview, can we model that section of street for both Beeler and Chenango?

    DonIee asked 6 months ago

    We will be rolling our the temporary restrictions later this month. We are coordinating with PD and the City Attourney to ensure that we can have support and enforcement for these new restrictions.

    Yesterday my son narrowly missed an accident due to a blue Mercedes pulling a U-Turn in front of him without looking or signaling during drop-off. This morning ~7:55am, a Pepsi semi cut through our neighborhood. Just FYI
