Bernalillo County Greenprint

The Bernalillo County Greenprint is a community-driven conservation plan. The purpose of the Greenprint is to guide where public funds should be spent to protect open space and farmland and expand access to local parks and trails throughout Bernalillo County. The Trust for Public Land worked with Bernalillo County Parks and Recreation Department and a local steering committee to develop the Greenprint based on community input. The Bernalillo County Board of County Commissioners passed an administrative resolution to adopt the Greenprint report on October 24.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING SAFETY TIPS
Shopping in Stores
• Do not buy more than you can carry. Plan ahead by taking a friend with you or ask a store employee to help you carry
your packages to the car.
• Save all receipts. Print and save all confirmations from your online purchases. Start a file folder to keep all receipts
together and to help you verify credit card or bank statements as they come in.
• Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise, such as onetime or multiuse disposable credit cards or money
orders, at online stores and auction sites.
• Wait until asked before taking out your credit card or checkbook. An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to
get your account information.

“Several years ago, Bernalillo County families affected by opioid addiction warned elected officials that the tsunami of opioid use in America was a looming, catastrophic threat to public health – a threat more ominous than any health crisis in the history of this nation.
