9/30: Community Dialogue to Re-Envision the West Central and Old Coors Corridors in Albuquerque

On Saturday, September 25, the University of New Mexico’s Community and Regional Planning Program (UNM-CRP) will host a community forum in collaboration with the West Central Community Development Group (WCCDG) to gather community input for a re-visioning of the West Central and Old Coors Corridors. The event will run from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM in the Alamosa Multi-Purpose Center at 6900 Gonzales Road SW in Albuquerque.

Albuquerque City Council President Ken Sanchez will open the event. Other speakers will include Klarissa Peña on behalf of WCCDG and Professor Tim Imeokparia (UNM-CRP).

The purpose of the dialogue is to receive input from community members on topics ranging from improving transportation, enhancing economic and community development and learning about other community interests. Community members are welcome to spend as much time as they would like to share their thoughts and ideas. The dialogue will help us develop community recommendations for future planning, design and development.

Refreshments and children’s activities will be provided. A wrap up of the community recommendations will start at 4:00 PM. If you have questions, please contact Tim Imeokparia at (505) 277-1666 or timeokpa@unm.edu.
