Springing into Action in ABQ
It’s officially spring, and as we enter this new season, we want to acknowledge where we are and where we are headed.
There are many new projects on our City’s horizon, as we continue strengthening our community, expanding opportunities, and creating spaces for current and future generations to enjoy. We are moving forward with a land swap deal with the State to bring closure to several land issues and advance important projects. The swap secures acreage needed at a critical downtown location for the Rail Trail, as well as another property for our Solid Waste Department. A State public safety facility will be taking over City land at 1250 Menaul, previously under consideration for transfer station and temporarily for a safe outdoor space. Accordingly, there will be no safe outdoor space or transfer station at the site.
We also unveiled plans for a new multigenerational center in the heart of the historic Santa Barbara-Martineztown neighborhood that will break ground this summer. This weekend, Albuquerque Community Safety (ACS) will be hosting a community celebration and groundbreaking on their long-awaited headquarters at San Mateo & Kathryn. And last but not least, we announced that the New Media Academy will be housed at our Rail Yards, teaching the next generation of filmmakers right here in the Duke City. All around us, there are reminders of the good that is possible through collaboration and a shared dedication to making our home the best it can be.
We are hopeful for our city because we see the work that our team is doing each and every day to make Albuquerque safer and more inclusive. Whether it’s new opportunities for our creative community or getting more people in touch with housing and resources, we have seen glimpses of Albuquerque’s full potential. We’re determined to keep raising the bar so that our city is a place where families can thrive in healthy, supportive communities.
