October 24, 2018

As part of Mayor Tim Keller’s initiative to turn government inside out, the City of Albuquerque held a Neighborhood Summit at the Albuquerque Convention Center to meet with Albuquerque residents and provide a progress update on recommendations set at the Transition Capstone Event held at the beginning of the administration. The Capstone Transition event brought together hundreds of community members to voice ideas for an effective and efficient city government.

The goal of the summit was to show progress made on the recommendations set last year and to continue to build strong, productive relationships between residents and the City of Albuquerque. The City’s senior leadership team and representatives from each of the 22 City departments were in attendance with more than 300 people in attendance.

“The One Albuquerque Neighborhood Summit was a chance for all of the innovative teams working inside City Hall to engage with the communities they are serving,” said Mayor Tim Keller. “We want everyone to come together as One Albuquerque to share ideas and concerns and find solutions.”

The Mayor kicked off the event with a presentation updating the public on initiatives the City is working on including: public safety, building an economy that works for everyone, stepping-up for kids, addressing homelessness, investing in creativity and culture, the City’s sustainable future, and volunteer opportunities.
