Last week's meeting did not have a quorum so no business was conducted. Casual conversation included an update from Jose at the APD SE Area Command and discussion about the barriers at Carlisle and San Rafael (part of the San Rafael Traffic Calming measures). FYI, here is a link to the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program and how the process works: https://www.cabq.gov/neighborhood-traffic-management-program

Not in our neighborhood, but critical to development issues citywide!!!

SAN ANTONIO OXBOW WETLAND OPINION

John Ingram said: City Council Votes 4-3, Approves McCarthy’s Oxbow Development Plan, Violates IDO*.

On Monday night, city councilors Trudy Jones, Brook Bassan, Diane Gibson, and Don Harris approved Brian McCarthy’s Oxbow development plan.

McCarthy’s Oxbow construction plan violates ABQ’s Integrated Development Ordinance (IDO) on two (2) points.

Number one (1), IDO does not specifically and expressly allow development plans which propose to build more than one (1) cluster of homes on one (1) site plan.

Number two (2), IDO does not specifically and expressly allow development plans which propose to use drainage easement to meet ABQ’s open space requirement for one (1) cluster of homes on a development proposal.

By voting to approve McCarthy’s Oxbow development plan, Jones, Bassan, Gibson, and Harris have effectively added new IDO provisions without following legal requirements to expand rights granted to real estate developers under IDO.

Councilors Pat Davis, I. Benton, and Klarissa Pena voted against McCarthy’s Oxbow plan.

Council President Davis said that by this 4-3 vote, the ABQ city council has established a precedent which is not “a good precedent.”

In our opinion, it’s more than a bad precedent. It’s illegal. It will have to be challenge in District Court.

Instead of doing their job of enforcing IDO rules, councilors Bassan, Gibson, Harris, and Jones have unilaterally expanded IDO.

Harris (Dist 9), Gibson (Dist 7), Borrego (Dist 5), and Sena (Dist 1)*** must run for re-election next year, in November 2021. They should not be re-elected.

Our neighbors who own homes in the Oxbow area of ABQ’s west side must now decide if they can raise the money to appeal the votes of Bassan, Jones, Gibson, and Harris in District Court.

We hope they can.

*IDO=Integrated Development Ordinance
*** Borrego and Sena recused themselves. We believe Sena should be given another chance.

Hello Victory Hills Neighbors! For the last year we have had an unfilled seat on the Board, and our President just moved next door to Southeast Heights!

Hi all, I hope this message find you well. We lost our Husky dog "Meeko" today at around 10:00am and are looking for him. He is medium build and still a puppy. He is good natured and playful. If you've seen him or you have him, please message me back, as we are very worried about him and want him back home with his family. Thank you, Duran Family, Victory Hills Neighborhood, NM **Below is a current picture of Meeko
