The South Metro Enterprise Zone Announces New Economic Development Response
The City of Englewood and the City of Littleton are proud to announce that the South Metro Enterprise Zone has approved a new contribution project to encourage donations to assist businesses that have had to close, have limited operations, or are in the process of reopening due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The approved COVID-19 Small Business Recovery contribution project is now open to accept cash donations for eligible businesses.
“The entire City of Englewood is fortunate to reside within the designated South Metro Enterprise Zone and this new donation program will be an appreciated companion program to the efforts we have instituted to support our local business community during this very challenging time,” said Englewood Mayor Linda Olson.
“I know there are many people who want to help businesses that have been devastated by COVID-19,” added Littleton Mayor Jerry Valdes. “I support the Enterprise Zone contribution project because it’s a great way for citizens to make a tax-deductible donation to help businesses in that zone to sustain and recover.”
Donations will be used to assist eligible businesses, located within the South Metro Enterprise Zone that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of support that donations may fund include rent/mortgage payment, employee support (salaries, insurance, paid leave), utilities payment, expenses associated with marketing alternate hours or closures due to county and/or state restrictions, COVID-19 protection and cleaning supplies, and expenses to institute alternative business access (curbside pickup, delivery, etc.). This project will supplement other State, Federal and local programs for which businesses may be eligible.
The partnership with the South Metro Enterprise Zone allows donors to receive a 25% state tax credit for their donation. The minimum donation is $100 and all donations will be distributed to eligible businesses that apply for assistance.
For more information on how you can donate to these businesses, please visit Small Business Recovery Project

Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if hands are not visibly soiled.
Take extra precautions for those with chronic medical conditions
Older adults (over age 60) and people who have severe underlying chronic medical conditions, like heart or lung disease or diabetes, seem to be at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19 illness. Please consult with your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.
Consider avoiding crowds, avoiding non-essential air travel, limiting close contact when you're out in public, and washing your hands often. Review more at CDC’s people at risk for serious illness from COVID-19.

The state of Colorado has moved to Level 2: Safer at Home.
Colorado has been doing a great job following the Stay-at-Home order, and we must keep it up. The virus is still present in Colorado and can re-surge at any time. Everyone needs to do their part for themselves, their loved ones, and our community. We have a responsibility to ourselves and to each other to protect our state and our community. Right now, we are in Level 2: Safer at Home. Coloradans are no longer ordered to stay home, but are strongly advised to stay at home. Critical businesses are open and non-critical businesses are operating with restrictions.
People should be prepared for state and local public health orders to be extended, amended, or changed as needed to protect public health. This means we may move between the different levels during this pandemic:

Virtual Community Sharing Circle
To RSVP please fill out this form below and you will be emailed the meeting link and directions on how to join the meeting on the device (computer, iPad, phone) you are using.
In our efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing and minimizing contact with others, we are at risk for becoming more isolated. A Community Sharing Circle (CSC) is an opportunity for all Englewood community members to engage in an intentional, structured conversation with one another. The facilitated dialogue welcomes all participant voices and experiences to be shared and heard, which creates the possibility for authentic connection.
If you choose to attend the CSC, sharing is voluntary. However, all participants are asked to keep what is shared in the circle private out of respect for one another’s experiences.
With the closure of our indoor recreation facilities and City parks, the Parks & Recreation department put together this virtual stop for fun, fitness, indoor and outdoor activities, education, and resources. They are committed to ensuring that our community members have everything they need to maintain healthy lives and continue to have fun from home. Remember we may be isolated, but we are NOT alone!
Follow Parks & Recreation on Facebook for new ideas to keep you and your loved ones active, entertained, and engaged.
