For the last two years, after developing a project plan, and purchasing lights thanks to a generous grant from New Mexico Resiliency Alliance, we have worked hard on getting through the red tape necessary to move forward with this project. After all this time and after we finally were able to secure the necessary permissions/blessings/sign-offs, French Brothers - Alamogordo stepped up to the plate and offered to provide grant matches in the form of purchasing the needed hardware and even more importantly, the drive, motivation and PEOPLE to help make this project happen! With Alamogordo MainStreet and French Brothers teamed up, we secured additional (and vital) help from TDS Telecommunications LLC AND some private donors to knock out Phase 1 of this project. Also, a big shout out to the City of Alamogordo - Government Public Works! Even though this was a privately funded project, the City stepped up to assist us as much as they were able to! Thank you SO MUCH to everyone involved and all those that braved the scorching heat on the street this past Sunday!

We were nominated by Mesa Verde Enterprises, Inc. to join the #ThisIsOurTown challenge and we accepted! This past Sunday, the Alamogordo French Brothers team partnered with Alamogordo MainStreet and TDS Telecommunications LLC to complete a big project that has been in the works for a while - hanging lights on New York Ave!!

This project has been in the works at Alamogordo MainStreet for 2 years, they just needed the parts and man power to complete it. French Brothers donated electrical cable, steel cable, hardware and man power; TDS donated their bucket trucks and man power; and
Picacho Brewing Company provided the much needed refreshment! We just love it when communities come together to get things done!

Its our turn to challenge now, so French Brothers is nominating White Sands Construction and TDS is nominating Tularosa Basin Telephone Company/Tularosa Communications, Inc. to do something good for Alamogordo!

So next time you are downtown grabbing a beer and a bite, or doing some shopping, check out the amazing lights overhead and know that your community made it possible! This Is Our Town and we are proud of it!!

07/02/2020

Alamogordo MainStreet Executive Director, Cam Wilde, will be resigning, effective early fall, 2020. Wilde, who has held the Executive Director position since 2016, will soon be working directly with the New Mexico MainStreet program as one of two Revitalization Specialists in Graphic Design and Marketing serving 31 NM MainStreet communities and other programs across the state.

Wilde has been a champion of our Historic District’s preservation, revitalization, and economic development for the last 6 years, and we will miss his energy and enthusiasm. Wilde initially volunteered for the Alamogordo MainStreet Application Initiative in 2014 and 2015. He was hired as Executive Director by Alamogordo MainStreet Past President, Dr. Terry Marquardt, on September 1, 2016, and managed the program into its first State and National Accreditation in February 2017. Wilde was awarded State Certified Executive Director on January 31, 2018. In August 2018, under Wilde’s guidance and leadership throughout his first two years as Executive Director, Alamogordo MainStreet won the Spirit of MainStreet award from New Mexico MainStreet and New Mexico Economic Development Department.

In the 4 years that Wilde has held the Executive Director position, Alamogordo MainStreet has generated over $273,000 for beautification and business assistance projects within the Historic Downtown District through grants and state capital outlay. The program has additionally leveraged and facilitated services from New Mexico MainStreet totaling over $435,000 market value.

Wilde oversaw and managed more than 10 beautification and small business development projects, working with New Mexico Revitalization Specialists and Economic Development Department staff to improve and strengthen small businesses and infrastructure with the Historic Downtown District.

In addition to actual projects and funds invested into the program, Wilde laid the foundation for and continually developed positive partnerships with the City of Alamogordo - Government and Otero County Leadership. For every $10 of public funds invested into the Alamogordo MainStreet program since 2016, $90 in services, grant funding and direct assistance has been leveraged into the local economy.

Cam Wilde, the only employee of the Alamogordo MainStreet Program, was assisted in these endeavors by a working Board of Directors, all volunteers, who helped to facilitate projects and events.

I just wanted to take a quick minute to publicly and wholeheartedly thank Officer Heisinger of the Alamogordo Police Department AND his father.

You might have heard about the other night's brief and relatively minor wave of vandalism across Alamogordo. Well, as one of our previous post states, our friends at Alamo Jump were unfortunately affected. One of their great, big windows were busted out that night. Well, Officer Heisinger responded immediately after seeing the damage (unfortunately some time AFTER the damage was done) and not only was he finally able to contact AlamoJump's business owners (they, like many of us, enjoy sleeping in the middle of the night so it was a bit tough to reach them), but he contacted his own FATHER, Bob from Bob Heisinger Painting [(317)997-7410] to come down to the location and board up the broken out window! All this at around 4:00am. Bob didn't need to come down and do that, but he did anyway because, like his son, he obviously cares a great deal about our community.

On behalf of the entire Alamogordo MainStreet organization and all our district merchants and businesses, THANK YOU Officer Heisinger and Bob Heisinger Painting for all you do!

- Cam Wilde, Executive Director, Alamogordo MainStreet

You may have already heard about a small spout of destructive vandalism across the city that occurred last night/early this morning. Unfortunately our friends in the Alamogordo MainStreet district — Alamo Jump — were hit along with Thrive, EZTV and possibly others. Alamo Jump was able to capture some footage last night so please check their post comments section to have a look. Thanks to the Alamogordo Police Department for their timely response and wonderful assistance to Alamo Jump!

Also, please check out Alamo Jump's campaign for some assistance with needed repairs (it's looking like the insurance deductible is making this one impractical to file a claim). Please, if you are able, go here to donate! https://www.gofundme.com/f/alamo-jump-window-replacement

Unfortunately one of our front windows got shot out last night. It possibly happened between 9pm - 2:30am. We have a possible video of the car/perps who shot out the window (video in the comments) but if you have any possible leads or insight please reach out to the Alamogordo Police or message us directly. A few others (EZ TV, Thrive, etc) also had bullet holes in their windows from last night

A huge thank you to the great men & women of our police dept! They are extremely gracious & we're grateful for everything they did for us last night

**Update** Unfortunately the deductible is too high to get insurance involved so we've decided to start a small Go Fund Me. If you can pitch in $5 or $10, it would be appreciated! We will find a way to make it up to you!

Thank you Zuni Electric Inc. for leading by example. This looks amazing!

Today we kicked off project #thisisourtownAlamo With the City of Alamogordo being short handed the past couple of months due to health and safety precautions, they have only been able to focus on immediate issues. Therefore, we are going to challenge 2 organizations, Mesa Verde Enterprises, Inc.and @TDStelecommunications to find something in our community that they can pull together as a team to make a difference.

Zuni Electric spent the morning cleaning the area around the historic water tank on Tenth Street! Great job team, we appreciate the hard work.

If @MesaVerdeEnterprises and @TDStelecommunications accept this challenge to help #thisisourtownAlamo then they are going to challenge 2 organizations. Lets do this!

Contact Rodney Eaton at [email protected] to schedule your event and discuss local safety precautions while working.
