03/17/2021

The 2020 IDO Annual Update applications for City-wide and Small Mapped Areas has left the Environmental Planning Commission with a recommendation of approval with conditions. The applications head next to the City Council for review and decision. Planning staff will create a redline draft that shows the EPC's recommended conditions of approval for Small Areas and Citywide changes. Public comments will be taken at Council's Land Use, Planning, and Zoning (LUPZ) Committee and at full City Council, so there are still multiple hearings to give input. The date for the first LUPZ committee meeting will be available once the bill is on the Letter of Introduction. Send comments to the Clerk of the Council, Crystal Ortega and Council Planning staff at:

May the luck of the Irish be with you this St. Patrick's Day! If you're going to paint the town green and celebrate with some drinks, use UBER code GREEN21. Bernalillo County is sponsoring this safe-driving initiative. The rides began on Saturday, March 13 and will continue through 3 a.m. on Thursday March 18, 2021. By using the code, riders will receive a credit of up to $20 off one trip. The maximum number of rides available is 750 and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The credit can only be used for rides, not Uber Eats, and the discount does not cover tip. If the cost for the ride exceeds $20, the patron will have to cover the remaining amount.

This program is made possible through a partnership between the Bernalillo County Behavioral Health Services Department, the New Mexico Department of Transportation (ENDWI), Ron Bell Injury Lawyers, the City of Albuquerque Department of Family & Community Services, Uber, Sandoval County DWI Prevention and Cumulus Media Albuquerque are once again offering a safe ride option during St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. The “Take a Ride on Us” program gives the community the opportunity to take advantage of a safe ride option to avoid driving under the influence during the times in which high alcohol consumption is common.

03/11/2021

The City's Consumer Financial Protection Initiative is launching a public awareness campaign about unfair and deceptive solar panel marketing to Albuquerque homeowners. While going solar can be a win-win for saving money and protecting the environment, it’s important for residents to have all the details. “Thinking of Solar for Your Home?" provides information about the differences between a financed purchase, a leasing agreement, and a power purchase agreement. These agreements are not the same and some may put homeowners at risk of higher costs or disadvantageous contract provisions. Some companies market door-to-door and use high-pressure tactics to steer homeowners into agreements that are more advantageous for the company than the homeowner. For more information about the City’s efforts concerning solar panel awareness, please go to https://www.cabq.gov/consumer-financial-protection-initiative/solar-awareness
