Urban ABQ works on policy, practices and planning to help shape Albuquerque’s built environment. We support places people love- and work to strengthen places so that they love people back.
Albuquerque is an amazing city.
Research universities and facilities, amazing weather, second to none outdoor recreation, incredible ethnic and cultural diversity, and a burgeoning urban character are just a few things that define and attract us to this amazing place. The Duke City has endless potential.
However, there are elements that are lacking. Its nascent urban character is in need of help and encouragement. The City’s walkability in the majority of the city, for instance, is desperately lacking in good facilities. There are pockets of urbanity and strong urban design, but they certainly are not the norm.
Fortunately, this is changing and is where UrbanABQ.com enters the game.
This site and our group primarily:
- Serves as a center for information about important public meetings and opportunities for involvement
- Reports on relevant private sector developments, focused primarily on the “core” of the Albuquerque metro area
- Reports on relevant public sector investments in infrastructure
- Discusses and provides commentary on the issues of walkability, transportation, urban design, and general urbanity
We will continually be looking for guest and regular contributors so feel free to contact us with story ideas and please comment when you feel inclined.
