All Draft Recommendations Now Ready for Review

In the posts preceding this one, you’ll see highlights of recommendations for potential improvements along Albuquerque’s historic Central Avenue Corridor. The goal is to make the most of opportunities created by the planned bus rapid transit line along the Corridor.

There are 11 sections available for review, including an introduction. Two address big issues of concern to all — equity and inclusion in the economic and social benefits of Corridor improvements; and strategies to overcome financial barriers and leverage future investment. Seven sections address concerns and opportunities in neighborhoods near the University, West Central, Downtown, EDo, Nob Hill, International and Old Town transit station areas.

Explore each section here:

Online comments and questions are welcome anytime, of course. And plans are in the works for community meetings along the corridor to focus on specific topics in the section drafts.

For a refresher on the basics of the process that got us to this point, go here. And here is a summary of the work we did together during an intensive community workshop in March.

The draft sections now available for review were heavily informed by that week of collaboration. So, again, thanks for your participation at each of the stages that helped us move closer to a final report that can be considered for incorporation into action plans for the Corridor. Please continue your support.
