SAVE OUR PARK!
The proposed Clayton Heights Metropolitan Redevelopment Plan includes a potential redesign of the Korean War Veterans Memorial Park and Loma Linda Community Center area on Yale Blvd. The Plan recommends reducing its green space significantly by developing the frontage areas on Yale for retail/residential uses and by developing the back of the property for housing. This would eliminate the soccer field and leave no room for future expansion of the Park or Community Center.

We support the city’s revitalization efforts. However, we would like to see a Plan that enhances the Park and Community Center and expands the area’s recreational uses only. Opportunities for retail/residential development on other sites are available.
If this Plan is approved, our open space moves one step closer to being lost. Once developed, outdoor recreational areas and green space is gone forever!
The MR Plan will be reviewed by the Land Use, Planning & Zoning (LUPZ) committee of the ABQ City Council on Wednesday, April 14, 2010 at 5:00 pm at the Council Committee Room on the 9th floor of the ABQ/Bernalillo County Government building at One Civic Plaza NW. We urge the LUPZ committee members to send the Plan back to city staff with a directive to amend the Plan to reflect our vision.
