The City of Albuquerque has been working on updating the 1976 Downtown Neighborhoods Area Sector Development Plan (DNASDP). This plan involves the zoning for all properties within its boundaries. The updated DNASDP, which has been in development through a public process for the past two years, is currently being considered by the City Council’s Land Use, Planning and Zoning (LUPZ) Committee. The LUPZ Committee deferred the legislation (Resolution R-110225) that would adopt the updated DNASDP to its November 30, 2011, meeting in order to provide time for additional review and discussion of outstanding issues.

Based on public comments and concerns, City Council planning staff has determined that a special meeting should be held with property owners and other interested parties to discuss zoning options for the areas labeled as “Areas for Further Discussion” on the LUPZ Proposed Zoning Map. The areas in question are key “transition” areas between the single-family neighborhood and areas of high-intensity activity. As such, it is critical that these areas be carefully considered, thoroughly analyzed, and appropriately zoned.

Your feedback and ideas are needed to develop zoning recommendations for the areas in question to present to the LUPZ committee on November 30, 2011. You are invited to a facilitated meeting on Thursday, October 13, 2011 6-8PM at the Mid-Region Council of Governments’ office (809 Copper Avenue, NW). Please note that the focus of the meeting will be limited to discussing the properties identified on the LUPZ Proposed Zoning Map as “Areas for Further Discussion.) Please direct questions or comments about all other properties to City Council staff, either via phone or email (contact information below).

If you would like to have a copy of the map or have any questions about this meeting, are unable to attend but would like to offer your input and find out what was discussed or have questions or comments about the DNASDP in general you may contact either:
