MEDIAN

Keep Albuquerque Beautiful welcomes all community organizations, businesses, neighborhood associations and private citizens to adopt a median in your area.

Imagine driving down the streets of Albuquerque and enjoying plants and colorful flowers rather than dirt or concrete. What a beautiful sight! Your organization can do just that! Adopting a median in your area makes a huge difference. Adopted medians become powerful symbols of the pride that people take in their community while working together to create lifelong friendships.

You can take advantage of this opportunity and make your community a cleaner and more beautiful place to live, like Goodrich Roofing recently did. These revived strips of land in the center of our streets can be a great advertising opportunity! Every organization is recognized with a sign placed at the site with their name on it to be seen by the public.

Call Keep Albuquerque Beautiful today to adopt your median at (505)761-8334 to get started today.

Project will create 62 full-time jobs, 150 construction jobs

Bernalillo County – The Bernalillo County Commission this evening approved an $11.3 million industrial revenue bond package for a Downtown mixed-use development including new apartments and a grocery store at Silver and Second Street SW.

The bonds are privately financed and allow the developer, UR 205 Silver, to exempt property taxes.

The project will create 62 full-time jobs and 150 construction jobs, as well as a new grocery store and 68 mixed-income housing units.

“Bernalillo County is proud to help revitalize Downtown Albuquerque with new developments that serve our community,” Commission Vice Chair Art De La Cruz says. “This is a great project that creates new jobs, new apartments and a new grocery store in the heart of Downtown.”

Last week, county and community leaders cut the ribbon on the nearby Silver Moon Lodge apartments, which features 151 affordable apartments with amenities.

Since 2010, the Bernalillo County Commission has supported projects that have created more than 1,800 new jobs and nearly $200 million in new private investment activity.

BernCo incentives support 151 new apartments at Silver Moon Lodge, create jobs

Bernalillo County – Commission Vice Chair Art De La Cruz today joined community officials in cutting the ribbon on the Silver Moon Lodge Apartments, a new workforce housing development in Downtown Albuquerque.

The County Commission in 2013 approved an $8 million project revenue bond for the project, which allowed the developer DBG Properties to access bonds at a lower interest rate and receive some tax exemptions. The bonds are privately financed.

Today, Silver Moon Lodge features 151 affordable apartments with amenities in Albuquerque’s urban core.

“There’s clearly a huge demand for more workforce housing and more housing options in Downtown Albuquerque and throughout Bernalillo County,” Commission Vice Chair Art De La Cruz says. “Bernalillo County is proud to support high-quality developments such as the Silver Moon Lodge Apartments, which are crucial to generating a more vibrant Downtown Albuquerque and improving our quality of life.”

The Silver Moon Lodge Apartments are located within walking distance of many major employers and are close to several public transportation options, from the New Mexico Rail Runner to the city’s Rapid Ride bus service.

The project also created 150 temporary construction jobs and four permanent jobs.
