Jones Advocates for NE Heights

As City Councilor for Albuquerque’s District 8, Trudy Jones knows what’s important to her constituents. She’s worked tirelessly to defeat legislation at both the state and local level that would have placed needless and burdensome regulations on private homeowners’ associations. And she’s also championed a spate of improvements in Albuquerque’s Northeast Heights.

“It’s important to make our city attractive to businesses and their employees, not just in terms of the regulatory and tax environment, but in terms of the services and amenities that we offer,” said Jones, who moved to Albuquerque with her family some 30 years ago. “Creating and maintaining great public spaces, as well as top-notch public safety facilities, are wonderful ways to enhance the quality of life for everyone who lives, works and does business here.”
Her office provided these updates on the progress of key District 8 projects:
Holiday Park Community Center
• Programming and schematic design phases completed
• Design Development phase to begin soon, which will result in construction documents
• Bidding is expected to begin in December 2011
• Construction is expected to begin in February 2012

Bear Canyon Senior Center
• Architect selection completed, with the job awarded to Greer Stafford
• The architects can begin work as soon as City Council approves enabling legislation
• Ideally, design will be completed by mid to late fall of 2011 (Oct.-Nov.)
• Because of the size of this project, it will need to go out to bid for construction
• Construction likely to begin in early 2012 (Feb. - Mar.)

Juan Tabo Medians
The last section of unfinished medians in District 8, between Montgomery and Spain on Juan Tabo, are scheduled to be landscaped this fall.

Rescue Unit at Fire Station 8
The Station 8 (Tramway and Indian School) Rescue Unit is now in service. This has resulted in better emergency service coverage for all neighborhoods in District 8 by relieving pressure on Rescue 16 (Juan Tabo south of Montgomery), which had been responding to one-third of all calls in the service area. The new rescue unit delivers advanced life support and can transport critically ill or injured patients to the hospital.
