Presbyterian Hospital: Presbyterian has suggested changes to put an 8’ path where Silver is now. While this is better than their initial design it will still destroy the continuous tree lined boulevard, which stretches from Yale to I-25. Why would we want to lose this beautiful street scape for 20 extra parking spaces? We recommend that it stay the way it is now.
Albuquerque Rapid Transit (ART): – We anticipate that there will be negative impacts on traffic on Gold Avenue caused by people cutting through our residential neighborhood. Something that would help slow this extremely fast traffic down is a 4-way stop on Buena Vista & Gold. Other changes to the roadway configuration that will stop traffic from detouring though our neighborhood would be welcomed.
National Institute of Flamenco: The National Institute of Flamenco is having a street festival on April 22. They will be closing the street and invite the Silver Hill Neighborhood to join them.
