Our Mission:  Stop Twin Parks from conversion into drainage basins.  Eliminate flooding in Pueblo Alto.

Background:  The Albuquerque Municipal Development Department (DMD) in collaboration with AMAFA (Albuquerque Metropolitan Area Flood Control Authority) has postponed the storm water runoff project that would convert Twin Parks into drainage basins.  The “Near Heights (Pueblo Alto) Storm Drain Improvements Project” is planned to convey excess storm water runoff via larger underground pipes from east of Washington NE to discharge into deep drainage ponds covering most of both parks.  Our Twin Parks as we know them would be destroyed.

Current Status:  Mayor Keller state in a recent letter on August 7, 2020 that “The project is on hold for the foreseeable future due to social distancing.”   This is therefore only a delay, not a stop to the project.

Your signatures on our petition and your letters created this postponement!
