Housing Forward ABQ

The Albuquerque City Council is meeting on June 5th at 5pm to consider zoning changes that would allow additional dwelling units in residential areas throughout Albuquerque. Those additional dwelling units would be prohibited by the High Desert covenants, but our High Desert HOA would have to enforce any violations through litigation, rather than relying on city zoning enforcement. The High Desert Board encourages all High Desert residents to read the proposed ordinance and share any concerns either at the council meeting or with their city councilor, Trudy Jones. Below are links to the proposed ordinance, to meeting schedules/location for the council meeting, and for contacting Trudy Jones:

Upcoming Fire Preparedness Event!

On Friday, May 19th from 10-2 pm, the Fire Preparedness Committee and Albuquerque Fire Rescue (AFR) will be holding an event at the city park on Academy in High Desert. AFR has promised to bring all six fire trucks and showcase their capacity to handle a wildfire in our community. Also, we will showcase goatscaping in a section of the Academy arroyo west of Cortaderia with the chance to pet a goat and talk to residents who have used goats on their properties. The event is sponsored by a grant from the Fire Adapted Communities organization. Please walk to the park if you are able because of limited parking in the city park's parking lot!
We need volunteers to work at the signup table and help with a drawing for REI gift cards. Also, we need volunteers (from those who have used goats) to mingle around the goats and answer residents' questions. Please call or Judy Pierson: 505-220-9193
