“Serve the Community for Generations to Come”
Councilor Don Harris says, “This truly was a team effort, with the City of Albuquerque and neighborhood leaders coming together to build a center that is user friendly, built with great quality, and has a high standard of service that this community deserves. We were honored to be a part of this project.”
“In this historic Albuquerque neighborhood, we welcome this great new facility and we know it will serve the community for generations to come. We are proud of the work that has been done and without the voters of Albuquerque approving the bond funds, this great community center would not be here today, thank you to the voters for the support of this project.”
