Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Southeast Community Policing Council. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar.

Just received this from the City:

"Good Afternoon, Ladies and Gentlemen:

First of all, I would like to apologize for sending out the Y2K version of a “form letter;” I toyed with the idea of sending out 591 individual emails, but I think the reality of time intervened. This will be a first and last group email.

I am the City of Albuquerque Community Policing Liaison and my job is to help the 6 Albuquerque Community Policing Councils promote APD’s transition to Community Policing. For those of you who may be unaware, the Department of Justice came up with a decree in 2015 that the Albuquerque Police Department’s unnecessary use of force demanded changes in the department, one of which being the establishment of the aforementioned Community Policing Councils;

The Community Policing Councils work closely with the Albuquerque Police Department to develop a comprehensive community policing approach that collaboratively identifies and implements strategies to address crime and safety issues.

Rather than simply responding to crimes once they have been committed, community policing concentrates on preventing crime and eliminating the atmosphere of fear it creates. Earning the trust of the community and making those individuals stakeholders in their own safety enables law enforcement to better understand both the needs of the community and the factors that contribute to crime.

A well–functioning police department has the trust of the residents it protects, functions as a part of the community rather than isolated from it, and cultivates legitimacy when the public views it as engaging with them fairly and respecting the rule of law.

Officers should value civil rights, respect every member of their community, and see their work as an investment in the community.

I am sending this letter to you today in hopes that you will pass it on to members of your Association so that we can get more community involvement in our monthly webinars: Our next SECPC webinar will be held on Thursday, May 20th, and these meetings contain information vital to the local community regarding the Police Department, crime, and issues caused by crime. We offer the opportunity to meet the police officers in the local command, make suggestions and ask questions. Invitation below;

You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
When: May 20, 2021 06:00 PM Mountain Time (US and Canada)
Topic: Southeast Community Policing Council

Register in advance for this webinar:

Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you soon at the NE Community Policing Council meetings."

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:

Albuquerque / Bernalillo County Comprehensive Plan

The CPA (Community Planning Area) Assessments are a critical part of the Comprehensive Plan that was adopted four years ago (March 2017). Altho lots has changed because of COVID-19 (regarding commuting, etc.), it is worth it to review this document. The Introduction is 25 pages--read that and then skip around to other chapters (drop-down menu lets you go directly to different section). https://compplan.abc-zone.com/abc-comp-plan

Albuquerque City Council to preserve land near Bosque (March 1, 2021)
For four(4) years, neighbors organized push back on a plan to build tract homes at the sensitive San Antonio oxbow wetland. We are relieved this parcel will become a public amenity and that area wildlife will have a refuge.
Thank you for all the emails you wrote (some of you attended hearings as well) in support of preservation and enforcement of protective land use laws.

From KRQE:
Albuqueruqe City Councilors have signed off on buying a piece of land at the center of a development fight and preserving it as open space. Monday night, councilors approved a list of properties they hope to acquire. One of the spots was the 23-acre Poole Property near Coors and Namaste.

Is there going to be a VHNA meeting tomorrow?
Thank you to Patty from VHNA for talking with KRQE about the smoke from Fairview Memorial Park and for updating neigbors on NextDoor about what she's learned from Fairview. For those interested in this issue, there is a longer video and some context at: http://chng.it/6GGrMyDj. Hopefully, the City can work with Daniels Family Funeral Services to help prevent instances where cremation smoke drifts low through the surrounding residential areas.
Is VHNA planning to issue a statement or express an opinion on the Loma Linda Gym? Those of us on the design committee seem to have been bypassed and the gym will be for the sole use of the therapeutic rec program. Was this sanctioned by anybody?
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
