Jun 23, 2016
06:30 PM - 09:00 PM


Highland Senior Center
131 Monroe St. SE
Albuquerque, NM 87108


Albuquerque is making its largest-ever transit investment and a once-in-a-generation zoning code update. Other American cities that have done both in a coordinated way have doubled the economic and social benefits to their community. What are the issues and opportunities for replicating or exceeding those results to serve all of ABQ?
You are invited to join motivated individuals, developers and business people, foundations, community doers and leaders to align our efforts, articulate shared visions, establish priorities and partnerships, and implement all kinds of important projects for the best possible future for all of Albuquerque.


  • Session I - Tuesday, June 21nd - 3:00pm-5:30pm  Epicenter (101 Central Ave NE at Broadway)
  • Session II - Thursday, June 23th - 6:30pm-9:00pm Highland Senior Center (131 Monroe St SE)
  • Session III - Saturday, July 9th - 9:30am-1:00pm Los Volcanes Senior Ctr (6500 Los Volcanes Rd NW)


In each session, you will identify all of the issues and projects that you think are most important – for yourself, your communit(ies), and the whole of ABQ. We’ll breakout into working groups, large and small, and you’ll choose for yourself where to connect and contribute. You’ll learn what is possible, what is happening, and how it all benefits ABQ. You’ll tap into emerging initiatives and meet others who care about the same issues and opportunities that you do. You’ll help align local policies, leverage resources, and make the best possible future for all of ABQ.
