District 3 Projects
We have been working diligently with City Departments to address median landscaping, curbs and sidewalks, traffic problems, and clean-up of bikes, trails and intersections.
- Working with Parks and Recreation department on redesign of the Alamosa Skate Park when funding becomes available. It is in need of some refurbishing to make it a safer and fun place for the youth in our community.
- The Anderson Heights Park on Cenote Rd is still in design phase. It has been discovered that some of the designated land sits on an archaeological site, so that has slowed up the process.
- The design for traffic calming measures for the Merlida Alleyway near Alamosa Elementary School is complete and construction should start in the next few months.
- Be on the lookout for infrastructure and other improvements on the Southwest Mesa and West Central in the next year.
- Work on 114th and De Vargas was completed at this dangerous intersection. More concrete barriers placed to protect the homes at the intersection, new traffic speed signs were installed and other traffic calming measures put in place.
- Collaborated with school, local and state officials to place needed infrastructure to create safer pedestrian and traffic measures at Atrisco Heritage Academy.
- Representatives from APS, the City of Albuquerque, State Senator Padilla, APD and others agreed to work with each other to develop a plan for traffic safety issues at Amole Mesa & 98th Street.
- The groundbreaking for Sierra Sunset Park at Messina and Amole Mesa was held on November 14th. The 6.8 acre state-of-the-art park located west of 98th St. and south of Gibson. The park is estimated to be completed by late summer 2015.
- Sidewalks were constructed on Churchill Rd east of Old Coors and on Fredrick Lane east of Unser.
- Westgate Little League Park on 86th and Sapphire was cleaned up and some repairs made to the dugouts to alleviate some of the maintenance issues.
- New signs were constructed and placed in Valley Gardens and Alamosa neighborhoods.
- The Tower medians are getting new landscaping installed with shrubbery, trees and flowers.
