County Commission Approves Development Funding for Mid-North Valley Agro-Recreation Complex

12/13/2019

The Bernalillo County Commission approved $1.5 million for the planning and development for the Mid-North Valley Agro-Recreation Complex commonly known as Sandia Ranch.

The money will fund site-work, infrastructure to include parking, landscaping, park amenities, roadways, trails, water and sewer systems, and arena areas.

Several public meetings regarding the roughly 17-acres of developable land have been held in the past year, and the county will continue to take public input and host additional community meetings.

The Albuquerque Sign Language Academy has shown interest in 4 acres of land, but the county has made no determinations and no sale is pending. Should a sale move forward, the land would be sold at current market value and would require County Commission approval. In addition, any development on the land would require zoning approval through a public hearing.

A future phase of development at the Mid-North Valley Agro-Recreation Complex will involve potential buildings with offices and meeting space for the Bernalillo County Extension Service, Grow the Growers program and other agricultural collaborators of the county.

The financial resolution was approved on a 5 – 0 vote.

  • Art Along the Rio Grande: Experience Nature Through the Artists' Lens is a visual exploration of the ecological and cultural richness of the South Valley’s Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge. The exhibit is a joint project of the Refuge, Gutiérrez Hubbell House, Friends of Valle de Oro, Hubbell House Alliance, and Bernalillo County Public Art. Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the Southwest’s first urban refuge, located in the South Valley, just a few miles south of downtown Albuquerque. The refuge is in the process of restoring a former dairy farm back to a mosaic of native New Mexico habitats in order to provide an oasis for wildlife as well as an abundance of education and recreation opportunities for the community. The exhibit showcases the work of local artists in diverse mediums. For the past 7 years, photographers of all ages and skill levels have been invited to participate in an annual photo contest hosted by the refuge, to capture images of the refuge's wildlife, landscapes and people. This exhibit will feature the winning images from the 2019 photo contest, highlighting the refuge this past year as it begins restoration. Sketches and images from the Fall 2019 field mural project featuring 5 women muralists will be on display at GHH. The murals can still be seen at the Refuge, while sketches, photos, and other works reflect the goals and processes of the artists. Artwork by local Artist Wren Walraven, will also be featured. Wren’s artwork content comes from her personal experiences with wildlife, her passion for those animals and the magical desert scenery. Join us in this celebration of the South Valley’s environmental beauty, creativity, and community connections.
