Keep watering those new trees.

Tis the season to mulch! Add extra mulch now to insulate your tree's roots. Leaves are also great to mix in. "Leave the leaves!" It is still pretty warm so continue watering young trees at least once or twice per week low and slow.

In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Greater Albuquerque Association of REALTORS® (GAAR), the organization has up to 100 REALTORS® coming to do a massive cleanup at Historic Fairview Cemetery. The Make a Difference at Fairview event takes place on Saturday, October 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Tumbleweeds, grass, and trash will be gathered up and collected in a City of Albuquerque trash compactor truck. Breakfast burritos and snacks will be provided, and Bernalillo County Commissioner Adriann Barboa is providing coffee.

The first woman president of GAAR, Margaret Medler, is buried in Historic Fairview Cemetery. She was president in 1932. Her maiden name was Kent, and she is buried in the Kent family plot.

Hope you can come out and join in the clean up tomorrow!

City Council on 2021-10-04 3:00 PM - TWENTY-FOURTH COUNCIL - FORTY-SECOND MEETING - Oct 4th, 2021

This email arrived from a neighbor wanting to know if anyone had been involved in and/or commented on the UNM South Campus TIDD:

Hello,

In yesterday's final presentation to the Board of Regents regarding the final action of the $300,000,000 public finance for UNM, it was represented that 23 neighborhood associations were contacted and that no negative reply was received. In fact, it was stated, a few positive responses were submitted. Do the NAs closest to these efforts - Districts 2, 6, and 7 - feel properly informed? Though this issue indeed affects every tax paying citizen.

I am hoping to find those parties that submitted a positive response.

It would be informative to know if it was made clear and understood that with this deal structure, there is a threat the public would forgo at least $2.2 million annually in monies that would otherwise go to services to meet public mandates - such as APS, police, social services, utility infrastructure - expected of typical development would instead revert to the university?

According to the presentation on the issue on Oct. 4th, $136,500,000 is to be spent on "Building Improvements". According to the UNM representative at yesterday's Regent meeting, when the TIDD closes, the assets will be transferred to either UNM or the City; which makes good sense for roads and sewer, but is complicated when dealing with buildings housing private tenants.

When the $136,500,000 is transferred to UNM, that property becomes exempt; resulting in a ~$2,200,000 annual forfeiture of property tax. Over the next 25 years, that would equate to more than the stadium cost. And then again. And again. The tax revenue will be continually forfeited to the university.

Below is a link to the city council meeting discussing the action, Item 11e, about 20 minutes. For $300,000,000 the public discourse seems sadly lacking, but it was represented members on this chain were informed. And that for a $300,000,000 public financing effort, that was to be sufficient. The entities responsible for meeting public mandates, that rely on property tax revenue, have not been approached about the effort.

If you have comment on the public financing, please let your city councilor know. Also, if you expressed support, but were unaware of the details, please contact UNM Regents office at [email protected] to clarify your position.

Final action on this item is expected to occur at the Nov. 3 City Council meeting.

On September 25, 2021, Tree New Mexico’s ABQ NeighborWoods program surpassed the 5000 tree mark in our goal to increase the tree canopy in Albuquerque! We have planted or given away to be planted 5,044 trees!

Championed by ABQ City Councilor Isaac Benton in 2017 along with a committed team of State and City foresters, landscape architects, tree growers, tree service professionals, ABQ Planning, The ABQ Office of Neighborhood Coordination, and TNM, the program was kicked off and has been gathering momentum ever since.

Thanks to all the City Councilors who have sponsored the ABQ NeighborWoods grant in their districts, the 27 neighborhoods who have participated, and all the volunteers who helped us reach this milestone!

Patricia, I understand that you are the president of the Victory Hill Neighborhood Association. I am the neighbor of 901 Princeton Drive. I live at 817 Princeton Drive. On Saturday, the homeless mentally ill man threw his f***s, a brick, and a burning stick in my yard. I have been actively calling the Code Violations Dept. (Diego Gonzales), Pat Davis' office, the Mayor etc. I would like to make contact with you Patricia to discuss this situation further and get your assistance.
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
