I agree that the infrastructure is terrible in the South Valley. I drive on Atrisco and that road is hard on my Jeep and is bumpier than most forest roads. The South Valley seems to be ignored on a regular basis by the City of Albuquerque that is why I’m looking forward to the proposed new mall that is supposed to be built near the Wal-Mart off Rio Bravo.

On the State Fair: let's start by dropping the snooty word "Expo" and calling it the New Mexico State Fairgrounds again.
Bulldoze Tingley (old, too many supports block the view of spectators) and replace it with an arena like the city wanted to put Downtown. The new arena should be able to handle rodeos, circuses, indoor sports, and music concerts. Plenty of parking is available.

Why would the city pay for services the county should provide?

The South Valley is a patch work of city and county and as you mentioned, Valley Gardens is well into the South Valley. The city ignores the South Valley because it chooses to, it suits their bottom line. When I call for the police or any emergency service, I always have to make two phone calls, one to the city and one to the county—each entity states it’s not their problem…I mean their district. I live in the city and across the street is the county. The South Valley is either part of Albuquerque or we are not—there are over 70,000 residents in the South Valley, if we secede that will put a mean hurt on the city. I pay taxes for the city, yet we don't have sidewalks or decent drainage systems. The city needs to step up.
