Spring Architecture Walk May 16th!

On Saturday, May 16, in partnership with the Nob Hill Neighborhood Association, our Spring Architecture Walk will take place.

We will meet at 10 am on Wellesley Drive in front of the iconic 1936 Jones Motor Company (now Kelly’s Brew Pub ).

After exploring that wonderful building we will move on to the 1935 Monte Vista Fire Station and the 1938 Lobo Theater enjoying the well-preserved retail blocks along the way.

Then we will proceed into the earliest residential portion of Nob Hill, University Heights. Col. D.K.B. Sellers and A.B. McMillen platted this area in 1916, an event that will be widely celebrated throughout 2016 when Nob Hill turns 100.

An interactive discussion style is planned so we can address what interests you, including how to maintain or remodel your house in a way that preserves its historic character.

Signups are limited so all can hear and interact. Make reservations here or call 991-1388.

If you have a house in the area that retains much of its historic character and would be willing to provide your yard for a reception at the end of a walk please let us know here on the website or at 991-1388.

NHNA Comments on NMED Strategic Plan Regarding Kirtland Fuel Spill Cleanup

January 29, 2015

Dennis McQuillan
New Mexico Environment Department
Environmental Health Division
P.O. Box 5469
Santa Fe, New Mexico 87502

Dear Mr. McQuillan;

Thank you for providing the opportunity to comment on the NMED strategic plan draft regarding the Kirtland Air Force Base fuel spill cleanup. The Nob Hill Neighborhood Association is deeply concerned about the environmental impacts of this very large spill and urges all efforts possible to clean up and remove the contaminants before it reaches the Albuquerque and Bernalillo County water supply.

We agree with the stance of the Water Authority that zero contamination is the only acceptable level for EDB so we have concerns that NMED has not chosen zero as the acceptable benchmark.

We agree with the various approaches to the clean up as it is clear that only by using all available technologies will the spill be fully removed and cease to be a threat.

However, we are very concerned that there are no clear deadlines for any of the interventions. As a result there are no consequences for KAFB continuing its history of missing deadlines and benchmarks. We believe NMED must exert maximum pressure on KAFB and set firm deadlines and fines for failure to meet established targets.

There is great cynicism in the community regarding KAFB’s commitment to clean up this spill and our state government’s efforts to hold KAFB accountable. We urge you to revise your plan as we discuss above and make strides in building the confidence we need going forward.

Sincerely,  Susan Michie, President

**PLEASE DIRECT QUESTIONS & COMMENTS ABOUT THE KIRTLAND FUEL SPILL CLEANUP TO KURT KRUMPERMAN **
