Did you know that the Planning Department has made it easier to see the top 15 most problematic properties in Albuquerque? These properties are often hotbeds for criminal activity, are dangerous to inhabit and become eyesores across the city. The Problematic Properties Program is modeled in part after APD’s Metro 15 Program, which keeps a list of 15 offenders who are drivers of crime in Albuquerque to target for arrest. Check out these properties at: www.cabq.gov/problematicproperties and track the top 15 of the worst buildings out of approximately 300 substandard properties in Albuquerque. The Problematic Properties Program website also has a link to a companion webpage that highlights 25 properties that were once problems, but have been turned into success stories. You can find this at www.cabq.gov/resolvedproperties

On Thursday June 17, at 3:00 p.m. via Zoom, Albuquerque City Council will be holding a Special City Council meeting to discuss the 2020 Integrated Development Ordinance (IDO) Annual Update, which includes amendments to address recreational cannabis. The IDO is the city’s regulatory document governing land development and use of property.

The IDO was updated in 2019 to address possible future cannabis businesses during a time when the New Mexico Legislature was having advanced discussion about legalizing a market for cannabis, following the lead of other States, like Colorado. While the IDO took steps in 2019 in anticipation of possible, future legalization, that day is now here. The New Mexico Legislature enacted House Bill 2 (The Cannabis Regulation Act), at a special session of the state legislature in early 2021. The City Council is now considering updates to the IDO in response to that Act.

While the State Legislature established a licensing and industry structure through the Cannabis Regulation Act, it is the job of local government to determine where it would be most appropriate for those licenses and that industry to operate within the City, and under what limitations to best preserve the character of special places and ensure compatibility with surrounding areas and community goals. The City Council has access to many tools through zoning regulations to accomplish community goals relating to cannabis uses. The provisions the City Council will be considering bridge the gap between a paper license issued by the State, and the physical establishments that will operate in the City. They relate to the density of facilities (i.e., how many facilities are within proximity of one another), distance separation requirements from perceived sensitive land uses such as schools and daycares, limitations on signage and operating hours, and how zoning regulations can ensure equitable and fair access to economic opportunities for all communities in the City, among others.

More museums are opening up, neighbors!

The New Mexico History Museum is pleased to announce that the renowned Native American Artisan Portal Program will reopen on Friday, June 11.

The program has been closed since March 12, 2020 as a result of the Covid pandemic. A reopening plan has been crafted in accordance with state public health orders and Covid-safe practices. Protecting the health of artisans and the public is a primary concern of the museum and the Department of Cultural Affairs.

All vendors will wear masks and will be separated from one another by at least six feet. To adjust for the increased spacing, vendors will be selling along Washington and Lincoln Avenues, as well as under the portal. Pedestrian traffic under the portal will be one-way, from west to east. Customers are encouraged to comply with state law regarding mask wearing. The Portal opens at 10:00 every day and closes at 3:00 although vendors may stay later.
