What's going on, Albuquerque?
Fries: does Chik-A-Fil cook their chicken in the same vat with fries? I don't want Chicken Waffle Fries.
Target: I can't think of much that can be worse for a neighborhood than dust storms from vacant lots and empty deserted malls. I'm not necessarily in favor of big business and big box stores generally. The area had been on the decline until UpTown I, but it seems the whole Louisiana / Menaul / Lomas / Central corridor has been "commercial" for a long time. I'm sure some neighbors would welcome the convenience of more shopping. It a'int happening downtown thats for sure and the Rapid Ride ( which should go back to a more frequent and later schedule ) make it more practical for bus people to shop. What practical solutions are the opponents offering up? A shuttle service around the commercial areas would be a plus and cut down on pedestrians having to cross busy intersections. Do the opponents want the near vacant mall torn down? They want a park? Can the City afford a park and police it?
Making up Snow Days After Memorial Day: Fine with me.
Free fries in Chicken oil: Fine with me.
Two-story Target in Uptown: Fine with me.
Brooks & Martinez: Corrupt. (Victims of a corrupt system/complacency with corruption and cronyism?)
Local Blues Bands: Fine with me.
@ hunter - south of indian school, it's the old quorum site right? was supposed to have a movie theater and hotel and restaurants back when abquptown was being designed?
that uptown target article is really quite funny. it's as if the uptown sector plan, which has been in place for YEARS, is creating development conditions that are apparently a surprise to (some) local residents.
