Community Planning Area Workshops

Planning Department Hosting a Series of Free Workshops for the Public!
The City of Albuquerque Planning Department (Planning) is hosting a series of eight Civic Skills workshops and six Community Planning Area (CPA) workshops through the month of October. The Civic Skills Workshops describe the history of the development in Albuquerque, focusing on how ethnic and economic backgrounds strongly influenced how and where neighborhoods were developed. The CPA workshops actively seek neighborhood input on how to effectively collect feedback that best represents your neighborhood and community's needs! Refreshments will be served at each workshop, and activities and childcare will be available at all locations. For a complete schedule of Civic Skills and CPA workshops, visit: www.cabq.gov/planning/events

Opportunities Available

Get involved in the behind-the-scenes activities that keep our HOA ticking.

An immediate opportunity to become part of the HOA organization is available on the Architectural Control Committee (ACC). The ACC works with homeowners to ensure that changes to the homeowner’s property are in compliance with the Covenants, Conditions, and Restrictions (CCRs) of our HOA. Following the guidance of the CCRs keeps our neighborhood looking great and protects the value of our homes. Be part of that process.

If interested, contact Stephen Arguelles – sarguelles23@msn.com.

Neighborhood Watch Block Captain Volunteers Needed

The Northwest Area Command is instituting a new program that will strengthen the ties between our officers and the community. Each Neighborhood Watch Block Captain will have a police officer assigned to them. The officer will be your liaison with the Northwest Area Commander and his supervisory staff. The block captain will be provided the officer’s email address in order to communicate neighborhood block issues to the officer. If the block captain cannot communicate by email, the block captain should contact the Northwest Area Command Substation and leave a message for the officer. The assigned liaison officer will respond and discuss your concerns.

There are a few guidelines that the block captain should follow:

 

1.     If the issue of concern is currently occurring, the block captain should contact the police dispatcher at 242-COPS.

2.     If the issue of concern is currently occurring and is of an emergency nature, such as any major crime in progress or any life threatening situation, the block captain should call 911.

3.     The block captain should contact the liaison officer about issues that are ongoing in the neighborhood block, such as abandoned home in disrepair, speeding, acts of vandalism, and any other issues that are ongoing and causing a disturbance in their block.

4.     The officer will reach out at least once a month via email or phone call (once they get their city issued cell phone), and a face to face meeting every three months.

The officers and staff at the NW Area Command look forward to having a partnership with our Neighborhood Watch Block Captains and their neighborhoods. Please contact Crime Prevention Specialist Pete Gelabert at (505) 803-2982 if you wish to participate in this initiative as a Block Watch Captain.

Bogus Non-compliance Letters

One of our HOA homeowners reported receiving a letter from the “Northwest Albuquerque Realtors Association” telling him that he must remove the basketball hoop he has in front of his house. Upon investigation, we found that no such organization exists and even if it did, such a letter from them would be bogus. Notification of potential violations within the HOA would come from either Corder and Company or the city. If you receive letters from anyone else about possible violations, please let Corder and Company know.

The Ethics Committee of the Board of Realtors would be interested in information about the letter senders since the letters are not from any licensed Realtor organization and it is illegal to impersonate a real estate agent.
