►Our Fall Membership Meeting is scheduled for Monday September 29th 2014 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Again we will be using the North Domingo Baca Multigenerational Center located at 7521 Carmel Ave. NE. The NDBMGC is two blocks north of the Paseo del Norte and Wyoming intersection, west off of Wyoming.
►On August 14, 2014 the Environmental Planning Commission postponed the approval of Project 1010144 the two new additions to the Del Rey property. The additions will include the Resort Lifestyle Communities at Santa Monica Place and the Santa Monica Place Assisted Living/Memory Care Facility. Evidently the City failed to notify some the residents north of the Del Rey property of the EPC meeting as required. The issue has been rescheduled for September.
►As part of the agreement for the City to assume ownership of Pan American Street the NMDOT will provide funding for the needed improvements. The City as begun the design of a new sidewalk from Harper Drive to San Mateo along with a bridge to provide crossing over the Borealis Arroyo. Included in the design Pan American will be resurfaced along with a three- way stop at Pan American and Harper Drive to insure a safe north-south crossing for pedestrians at the intersection. The NMDOT Bridge Bureau is reviewing the bridge portion of the project now and construction should start first quarter of 2015.
►One of the City’s Bond issues on the November Ballot will deal with updating the San Pedro/San Antonio intersection.
►The mental Health initiative proposed by the City Council was vetoed by the Mayor, no new taxes.
►Our multigenerational center will be getting an Olympic size swimming pool along with lap pools. The pool will be built instead of a 5000 square foot addition to the center.
►The 2014 Annual Officer Appreciation Day had a good turnout. We donated a Sportsman’s Warehouse gift certificate to the officer’s raffle. It is always good thing to recognize APD’s contribution to our community’s safety and let them know we care.
►We have had some individuals express interest in speaking at our September meeting. They are Metropolitan Judge Peg Holguin and Sarah Brugge an intern with New Mexico Child Advocacy Networks. This group works to help young people who have aged out of foster care or are at risk of doing so. If anyone has additional suggestions let me know.
►I am not getting the attention of PNM to look at a solution for our dim street lights and the addition of some street lighting along Pan American Street.
►Leave messages for our Neighborhood Association at

►Dave Coles a  City of Albuquerque Facilitator was inquiring  as to whether or not we would want a facilited meeting for the newest additions to the Dey Rey Property. No neighborhoods have shown interest in a meeting about an issue already signed and delivered to the EPC by the City of Albuquerque. The suggestion was made to have the facilitator enter our comments into the record. The following is a copy of the email I sent him.

June 2014 Newslettter

►I just received information describing the next areas to be developed on the Del Rey property. The first area will be at the northeast corner of the property Louisiana Blvd. and Derickson Ave.. This is now called Tract 3-B and the proposal is for a Senior Assisted Living and Memory Facility. Tract 4-B is at the corner of Louisiana Blvd. and Santa Monica Ave. The proposal is for a Senior Independent Living Facility. Located between the two tracts there will be a new street San Vicente Ave. which will run west into the development from Louisiana Blvd. Another new street called Brent Wood Blvd. will run north from Santa Monica Ave. and intersect San Vicente at the northwest corner of Tract 4-B.

The Tract B-3 development will be called Elan-Santa Monica Place (Senior Assisted Living/Memory Care). TRACT 4-B will be called Resort Lifestyle Communities at Santa Monica Place.
I have attached the Site Planning Principal’s letter along with some colored representations of the buildings. The EPC hearing for this project will be August 7, 2014. I am sure we will have more details to pass along after the EPC meeting.

► Saturday February 1st I attended the Mayor’s Neighborhood Associations Presidents Forum. The meeting is divided into three sessions; the first two sessions were with Department Directors of each City service and the last session with Mayor Berry. I will give you short summaries of the items discussed during the sessions.
● City finances are in good shape. The 60 million dollar deficit from four years ago has been retired.
Major city projects currently in progress are the Paseo I-25 Interchange, the Convention Center rehab,
transit projects, road resurfacing and bicycle lanes.
● The 311 App for I-phones is now also available for Android phones. It can be downloaded from the City’s website.
● Senate Bill 61 was introduced during the last NM Legislative session which would provide cities with laws
to deal with nuisance properties, abandoned or inoperable cars and copper theft. As of today I do not believe the bill was up for a vote at the end of the legislative session.
