Sawmill/Wells Park Sector Plan Amendments

The City of Albuquerque adopted the Sawmill Wells Park  Sector Development Plan in 1996 and has amended the plan several times to reflect changed and changing conditions.  In response to additional new developments proposed in the area, the neighborhood voiced concerns about traffic impacts and circulation.

To maintain the intent of the sector plan with respect to connectivity and traffic, efforts began several years ago to draft transportation amendments for the plan. The amendments were also intended to manage cut-through traffic, recommend traffic calming measures, and establish standards for Complete Streets that serve all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, transit users and vehicles.

The Environmental Planning Commission (EPC) will consider the amendments on Thursday, December 11, at 8:30 am. Location: Plaza del Sol hearing room at 600 2nd Street NW.

You can email your comments and suggestions about the amendment to Vicente Quevedo, vquevedo@cabq.gov

Company’s Comin’ Community Clean-Up

The City is sponsoring a pre-Balloon Fiesta clean up for the 5th year. The “Company’s Comin’ Community Clean-Up” will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., throughout the city.  We can register as a group, get free gloves and trash bags and a trash truck will pick up the collected bags at a designated Wells Park drop-off point that afternoon. It will be like the Great American Cleanup that we participated in last Spring.

If you are willing to help out, even for a couple hours, please contact Catherine Mexal through Nextdoor by 9/9 so we can have a count by the registration deadline (9/12). We’ll send in the registration form and pick up the supplies then distribute them at the drop-off site the morning of 9/27
