Approving The Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Area Plan (Winter, by request)



WHEREAS, the New Mexico Legislature has passed the Metropolitan Redevelopment Code (herein “Code”), Sections 3-60A-1 to 3-60A-48 inclusive NMSA, 1978, as amended, which authorizes the City of Albuquerque, New Mexico (the “City”) to prepare metropolitan redevelopment plans to undertake and carry out metropolitan redevelopment projects; and

WHEREAS, the City Council, the governing body of the City, (the “City Council”) after notice and public hearing as required by Code, has duly passed and adopted Council Resolution R-16-93, which designated the Coronado Area as a Metropolitan Redevelopment Area (MRA) and established its boundaries; and

WHEREAS, these Resolutions made certain findings, among other things, declaring the Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Area to be blighted and that rehabilitation, conservation, development and redevelopment in the Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Area is necessary in the interest of public health, safety, morals and welfare of the residents of the City; and

WHEREAS, the City Council has conducted a public hearing, after proper notice as required by the Code, on the Plan; and

WHEREAS, the Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Plan proposes projects and improvements that will help spur redevelopment of underutilized sites and improve infrastructure within the area; and

WHEREAS, the Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Plan identifies multiple strategies for revitalization of the area, including improvements to public right-of-way, traffic calming measures, safety improvements such as pedestrian lighting, and private property improvements to prepare for redevelopment.

WHEREAS, this Metropolitan Redevelopment Area Plan will promote the local health, general welfare, safety, convenience and prosperity of the inhabitants of the City and will benefit the City’s effort to revitalize the area.


SECTION 1. The City Council, after having conducted a public hearing pursuant to the code, finds that:

A.         The proposed redevelopment of the Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Area will aid in the elimination and prevention of blight or conditions which lead to the development of blight.

B.         The Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Plan does not require the relocation of any families or individuals from their dwellings; therefore, a method for providing relocation assistance is not required.

C.         The Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Plan complements the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Comprehensive Plan and affords maximum opportunity consistent with the needs of the community for the rehabilitation and redevelopment of the Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Area by public activities and private enterprise; and the objectives of the Plan justify the proposed activities as public purposes and needs.

D.         The Coronado Metropolitan Redevelopment Area Plan, as attached as Exhibit A, and made a part hereof, is approved in all respects.

SECTION 2. SEVERABILITY CLAUSE. If any section, paragraph, sentence, clause, word or phrase of this resolution is for any reason held to be invalid or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions of this resolution. The Council hereby declares that it would have passed this resolution and each section, paragraph, sentence, clause, word or phrase thereof irrespective of any provisions being declared unconstitutional or otherwise invalid.
