LPD awarded prestigious CALEA accreditation for the fifth time

   The Littleton Police Department (LPD) has been awarded CALEA accreditation at the organization’s 2018 spring meeting. The award demonstrates the agency’s commitment to professional excellence in policy and practice. This is LPD’s fifth consecutive accreditation.

Accreditation from CALEA (Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies) requires that the department meet 381 professional standards based on national best practices. The reaccreditation process takes place every four years and requires an extensive review including a week-long, on-site audit by outside assessors. The agency must demonstrate continuous compliance during the full four-year award cycle.

LPD is one of only 18 Colorado law enforcement agencies who has achieved full accreditation status. Chief Doug Stephens stated, “We are very proud to have received our fifth reaccreditation from CALEA. Accreditation helps us achieve our goals of transparency and commitment to high professional standards for the community we serve.”

Conservatrice Boutique opens on Main Street and immediately wins ‘best of’ recognition from Westword magazine

Gift, clothing and floral boutique Conservatrice opened at 2376 West Main late in 2017 with accolades from loyal customers who eagerly followed them from their previous spot on Broadway in Denver to the new Littleton location.    On March 29th, 2018, Westword magazine called the shop a ‘revitalizing sanctuary’ and added Conservatrice to their  2018 ‘Best Of’ list, recognizing the business for outstanding fresh floral designs.

Drawing inspiration from her Great-grandmother Minnie’s garden and love of nature, head floral designer Meg Jamison crafts seasonally-selected flowers into soft, European-style arrangements.  Customers can choose blooms for a special arrangement or select from an ever-changing variety of ‘grab-and-go’ bouquets.  Delivery is available for floral sales of $65 or more.    Meg’s mom and shop owner Betsy Jamison carefully curates unique handbags, charming children’s gifts and clothing, on-trend women’s clothing, artful gifts and romantic jewelry for the fantasy Parisian lifestyle shop.

City Funds Available to Assist Historic District Property Owners with Maintenance and Repair

In 2005 Main Street’s Historic District Preservation Grant program was formed to help property owners in the historic district enhance and preserve downtown Littleton’s unique character. Since then, more than 50 grants have been awarded for projects such as design assistance, window repair, painting and façade rehabilitation.

This year City Council has allocated a total of $50,000 for historic preservation grants. Those interested in applying must submit their grant application to the City of Littleton by May 7, 2018. Additional information about the program is available here.


Lights Out! Escape Rooms and Social Lounge opens in Woodlawn Shopping Center

Lights Out! Escape Rooms and Social Lounge located on the first floor of the Woodlawn shopping center at 1500 W. Littleton Boulevard opened March 30.   A growing phenomenon throughout the world, escape rooms originated in Japan in 2008.  Based on video adventure games, escape rooms test wits in a race against time.  To play the game, a group of people are locked in a room with 60 minutes to solve puzzles and find clues leading to the key which opens the door to freedom.   Often used for team building exercises, escape rooms involve teamwork, communication, and delegation as well as critical thinking, attention to detail, and lateral thinking.


Lights Out! Escape Rooms and Social Lounge has a horror theme owners Justin and Pam Goodchild characterize as ‘horror flair without the scare’.  The space features two rooms set up for competitive games between groups and three additional, uniquely-themed rooms for individual group play.   Wine, beer, pizza, and snacks are served in ‘The Sanctuary’ social lounge, a laid back environment stocked with board games and puzzles for groups to enjoy before and after the game.  Coming soon is food from Harleys, A Hot Dog Revolution.  The reception area features an art gallery of original pieces based on iconic horror films by North Carolina artist Jim Ferguson.  Prints of the artwork in varying sizes are available for sale.  Open every day except Monday, ages 16 and up are welcome to participate in the escape rooms until 9 pm.  After that, admission is limited to those 21 and over.

Refresh Nail Retreat (RnR), a posh new nail salon now open in downtown Littleton

Refresh Nail Retreat (RnR), a posh new nail salon has opened at 2555 West Alamo in downtown Littleton.

A list of hours, services, and rates are available on the RnR website.
