Won't You Be My (University Heights) Neighbor?

I haven't really gotten too involved in local politics here-- with the exception of doing my civic duty and voting (I realize it's not really the voting season, but just in case here's info on where to register).
Anyway, last month I attended the annual meeting for my University Heights Neighborhood Association and now find myself on the board. If you want to read a report from the meeting, and check out the neighborhood website, it's a great resource for all kinds of neighborhood and city information (as it pertains to the neighborhood). The board seems like a nice group of concerned and involved folks and I look forward to participating. (Note: I haven't really committed to much except going to meetings and asking a lot of questions.) There's lots going on of concern in our neighborhood, from the Gilcrist house to UNM's plans to build more student housing, the Lead / Coal project, tree planting plans, and much more.

So, if you live in Albuquerque, check out your own neighborhood association and find out how you can get involved... besides, getting to know your neighbors is a great way to fight crime.

And Mark Your Calendars: we have a clean up day scheduled for May 22. I'll post more info as it becomes available.

I've always maintained that your neighborhood is your community and getting involved doesn't have to be political if you don't want it to be. Asking lots of questions is a great place to start, thank you for posting and being brave enough to participate on the board. I am excited to see what is in store for the UHA and happy to see the new faces.
