Traffic Light Scorecard"Safe and accessible mixed-use areas with housing, employment, civic functions, recreation, and entertainment exist throughout Albuquerque"
PICTURE IS IN FOCUS
Based on the Following criteria:
Mixed-use development is occurring and increasing in the centers and corridors of Albuquerque. Between fiscal years 2005 and 2008, 26.5% of Albuquerque’s commercial construction permits and 26% of the multi-family housing permits were issued in centers and corridors. Over 9% of all permits issued in FY/08 were in centers and corridors, up from 1.8% in FY/06.
Albuquerque’s “centeredness” score, a measure of the concentration of population and employment is substantially above national average, 12th among the 83 metropolitan areas studied and second among six other Southwest benchmark cities.
In 2007, residents city-wide perceived this Desired Condition to be only slightly important, 50th of all 51 DCs and 4th of the five DCs in Goal 4. Downtown residents considered it slightly more important than did the residents of other areas in the City. Progress was considered to be somewhat better, 27th of 51 DCs. The data would suggest that more progress has occurred than perceived by the citizens surveyed.
