Adopting The Menaul Redevelopment Study And Recommendations As City Policy (Gibson)

...body

                     WHEREAS, the                      Menaul Boulevard corridor is characterized by its important role within the economy of Albuquerque; and

                     WHEREAS, the area is well located and central to Albuquerque with access to both Interstate 25 (I-25) and Interstate 40 (I-40) and is in close proximity to the rail lines and the airport; and

                     WHEREAS, Menaul is home to many locally owned small businesses that provide retail, dining options, and other services, as well as larger retail and hospitality chains, and

                     WHEREAS, generally the retail and service business are located along Menaul, with hotels located in proximity to I-25 and I-40, and light industrial and storage uses located between Menaul and I-40, and between Menaul, Candelaria, I-25 and the North Diversion channel; and

                     WHEREAS, while this is an important area for Albuquerque’s economy, it is also an area that has problems with crime and vandalism, business disinvestment, and vacant or under-utilized buildings; and

                     WHEREAS, the Menaul Redevelopment Study (the study) boundaries are Candelaria Road to the north, San Mateo Boulevard to the east, I-40 to the south, and I-25 to the west, and excluding single family residential development; and

                     WHEREAS, the study included a business owner survey, two community meetings, a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis, and site visits and research by the consultants; and

                     WHEREAS, the recommendations identified with and by the community are contained within the study; and

                     WHEREAS, the recommendations in the study propose a Metropolitan Redevelopment Area designation for a portion of the study area, identify opportunity sites, encourage continued dialogue with business owners, include measures to increase public safety, create a visitors center, and include improvements for street lighting, transit, trails, landscaping, and buildings and sidewalks; and

                     WHEREAS, the study seeks to document the existing conditions that may be contributing to a lack of investment and disinvestment with the area; and

                     WHEREAS, the recommendations in the study aim to improve lighting in the area, address safety, and to support the redevelopment and investment in the Menaul area.                     

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL, THE GOVERNING BODY OF THE CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE:
                     SECTION 1.  The Menaul Redevelopment Study, attached hereto as Attachment 1, shall be considered the current policy document for the Menaul area. The funding to further the recommendations in the study shall include but not be limited to Council set-aside funds, the CIP Program, and City requests for State Capital Outlay.
