East Gateway Metro Development:  Albuquerque's East Gateway district, the area along Central Avenue and I-40 from Four Hills Road all the way to Wyoming Blvd, is the first glimpse of the City that visitors see as they pass through the Tijeras Canyon. The purpose of the Metropolitan Redevelopment Area Plan, in the works since 2009, is to make this area more welcoming to residents and visitors by facilitating redevelopment of vacant and underutilized land parcels and providing for a greater variety of businesses and services needed in the area.  The web page for the Plan is here and the (large PDF file) Plan can be viewed here.  
Comp Plan:   In January 2016, the ABC-Z Project Team released for public review an update of the existing Comprehensive Plan for both the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. Comments were due by March 11, 2016.  What is this Plan and what happens now? 

This comprehensive plan or “Comp Plan” is a policy document that is jointly adopted by the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. It describes the community’s vision for the future of the built and natural environment and provides goals, policies, and implementing actions to achieve that vision. In this way, the Comp Plan shapes the future of Albuquerque and the unincorporated areas of Bernalillo County by guiding decisions about growth, development, and public investments related to land use, transportation, urban design, parks and open space, housing, economic development, neighborhoods, infrastructure, community facilities, and human services.  

There are hundreds of plans for the City's development, such as the Metropolitan Redevelopment Area Plan (see above), and all such plans must fit within the vision of the Comp Plan.  The Introduction to the Comp Plan (PDF file) is here.  There is a chapter in the plan for each major emphasis, such as Neighborhoods, and Parks & Open Space.  The Table of Contents with links to each chapter is here.  The web site for the April 15-16 public discussion of revisions to the January draft and to help finalize the draft is here.  
The City of Albuquerque ABC-Z Project team will then finalize the draft to be submitted to the City’s Environmental Planning Commission as the first step in the review and approval process

Tree-of-heaven Project:  Tree-of-heaven is an invasive tree in southwestern states that has been listed as a noxious weed in New Mexico.  Read more here.

The Canyon Club (formerly the Four Hills Country Club) is open to you for dining membership, tennis membership, or golfing membership.  Details here.   

Four Hills Shopping Center:  Located at SW corner of Tramway and Central, is now managed by Daskalos Development & Investments.  Entire shopping center has received a new facade.  Some of the primary tenants:   Icon Cinema, featuring first-run movies, VIP seating, all-you-can-eat popcorn, all-you-can-drink Coke, Burke's Outlet, and  Sprouts Farmers Market.  The renovation continues.   

No Solicitors!  Our own APD Foothills Substation is now offering you a NO SOLICITORS sign free of charge.  Click here for details. Here are some other items from Jill Garcia, Crime Specialist at our Foothills Substation:
  • APD Foothills Area Command web site:  www.foothillsareacommand.com; we have a web site now and want all citizens to sign on as subscribers (at the bottom of every page) and they will get automatic emails alerting them when I post to the web site.  I am currently posting Daily Watch Notes on property crimes in the past 24 hours, events, community workshops we are hosting, etc.  It's a great resource.
  • No Solicitors signs:  we have a new supply and they are available at the substation.  Just come by the lobby and get one; if you don't see one just ask one of our Office Assistants.  I've also placed the APD Crime Prevention handout on Door to Door Soliciting with the signs so our citizens can read about the ordinance.  The signs are the size of a license plate and are meant to be posted at the front door, front window or front gate to the home.
  • Foothills Substation Lobby:  I've got a brief write up I did available for the public on the new chip-embedded credit cards rolling out this year and related crime prevention materials on ID Theft, Safety on the Internet, and Preventing Scams, Cons and Fraud.


Supper Rock NA sign:  Congrats to our Neighborhood Association on the new display sign, which can be seen near our 'entrance' sign on Copper Blvd, just East of Tramway.  Our neighborhood web site URL (SRNA.NM.org) will be displayed there, as well as pertinent news for the neighborhood.  SRNA President is investigating the possibility of a second sign on Encantado entrance to our neighborhood.  Continue to check your SRNA web site as well.

SRNA Membership:  Dues are $10/year.   Membership Form is here (PDF).

Bike/Pedestrian path on Tramway:  Anne Hickman has worked with NM DOT to allow SRNA to be "in charge" of a section of the bike and walking trail on East side of Tramway Blvd near our neighborhood. Anne and a small group of volunteers accomplished our first clean-up back in March 2015.   The idea is to clean the area along the bike path, not the "adopt a highway" larger area.  Known clean-up times are in the Fall and in the Spring; otherwise as needed.  Contact Anne here to get on the list to help! 
Dead Vegetation:   As a result of the past winter freezes, many of our yards now have dead pyracantha, dead ice plants, evergreens that are brown and not recovering.  Please note that these dead plants can be an additional fire hazard to yourself and your neighbors during our ongoing drought conditions.  If you need assistance in getting these hazards (and eyesores!) removed, please check with the City or a landscape company - or notify your SRNA officers!
