Last week a group of neighbors came together to keep our neighbor Hillary Malu’s house from becoming a victim of property crime.
Will was out for his daily walk when he saw someone hanging around Hillary’s home. When he returned from his walk, he saw the person was in her backyard. Neighbors Jay and Adri also notice the person lurking about Hillary’s property and notified Will and his wife Nola. Nola contacted Eric Sutton, who reached out to neighbors to get Hillary’s phone number to warn her. Eric Sutton and Ruben monitored the situation and saw that the person had entered the house. Nola and several others call the police. Thanks to the neighbors’ efforts, the police quickly responded. Eric, Will, his wife Nola, Jay, Adri, Kathy Turner, and Alice Harsh all helped to make sure that the police had the information they needed and stayed to support Hillary when she arrived from work.
It was truly heartwarming to see neighbors come together in this caring and supportive group. Thanks to these heroes (the neighbors and the law enforcement) nothing was taken or damaged and the offender was arrested. Without this vigilance, it could have been so much worse. I personally would like to thank everyone who came together to support our neighbor.
Please note there was a conversation about which number to call. Always call 911 when a crime is in progress or there is the possibility of physical or property harm. Call 242-COPS for all other reports. It is important not to tie up the 911 line with calls about anything other than a situation that law enforcement must address immediately to avert a crime or harm.
The Fair West Neighborhood Association Board has been working with the City of Albuquerque to upgrade and renovate Marion Fox Park including the tennis courts, playground, sidewalks, picnic tables and trash cans. The next step is to ask our state legislature to fund this request. But we need your help!
Please send a letter, email or phone call to NM State Senator Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez and NM State Representative Kay Bounkeua supporting the park renovation and why. It is also helpful to contact Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis and Bernalillo County Commissioner Adriann Barboa to support this initiative.
Time is of the essence as the legislation session runs from January 18 thru February 17, 2022. Contacts are listed below. Also available is a letter that you can use for your convenience. Click here to download the letter template.
Once funding is secured, a meeting will be scheduled for public input as the final plans are developed

When Alvarado Drive became a bike boulevard and several stop signs were removed in the neighborhood, concerned neighbors informed the City of Albuquerque about speeding issues between Lomas Blvd. and Copper Ave.
As a result, the City of Albuquerque asked Lee Engineering to evaluate traffic using the Neighborhood Traffic Management Program (NTMP) to determine if the traffic operations on Alvarado Dr. meets the threshold criteria for implementation of traffic calming measures.
The goals of the NTMP are to improve neighborhood traffic safety, preserve neighborhood character and livability, and increase neighborhood involvement. The evaluation’s objective was to use the collected data and the site observations with guidance from the City of Albuquerque.
Between April 14 and April 15, 2021, traffic data was collected over 48-hours using road tube counters to determine traffic volume and moving speed traveling through the corridor. Consequently, Alvarado Drive between Copper Avenue and Lomas Boulevard qualifies for traffic calming measures per guidance from the City of Albuquerque’s Neighborhood Traffic Management Program.
