NNOposterTuesday August 2nd from 6:30pm – 8:30pm at Mary Fox Park: The Downtown Neighborhood Association will be celebrating the National Night Out again this year with an Ice Cream Social!

Join your neighbors, friends, family and board for an evening of family activities and fun…oh and ICE CREAM!

Bring a blanket or some lawn chairs and spend an evening in the park to show the city we are united for safety in the neighborhood! Meet your fellow downtown dwellers and find out more about making our hood more safe!




Would you like to have a new street tree?

The DNA has received a grant from the PNM Foundation to provide street trees at selected house lots within the DNA boundary.

You can sign up to be considered for a new street tree if:

  • The space between your sidewalk and curb (right-of-way) is 28 inches wide or more.
  • You are willing to sign agreements between yourself and the City of Albuquerque and the DNA, to water the tree on a scheduled time table and keep it alive.

To sign up for a tree, email and provide your name(s), street address, telephone numbers, email address and width of your right-of- way.

We know that there will be more house lots needing a street tree than the grant monies will provide. Selection of the actual recipients of a tree will be made by the DNA Street Tree Committee.  They will use on-site investigation and evaluations to make a selection. Your on-line request will certainly be a factor for the STC’s consideration.

Please note that there will be no August DNA meeting due to National Night Out being the evening before our regular meeting time.

Our next meeting will be on September 7th at 6:45pm at a new location: Lew Wellace Elementary School library.
