You’re Invited to Revitalize San Pedro Partnership Connections!

The Revitalize San Pedro Partnership (RSPP) is a group of neighborhood associations (Fair West, Mile-Hi, Mark Twain, Alvarado Park), businesses and residents, that have partnered with the City of Albuquerque and New Mexico MainStreet to promote the unique features of San Pedro Drive between I-40 and Central Avenue and work toward solutions to challenges.

We’re revved up and ready to launch the first RSPP Business Connections!

Enjoy some food and beverages and get acquainted with your fellow businesses, neighborhood leaders, City Councilors Fiebelkorn and Davis, APD, ABQ Community Safety, and other key partners.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 1, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
WHERE: Navajo Elks Lodge #863
525 San Pedro Drive, suite 108


Learn about real action happening right now along the San Pedro Corridor to tackle critical issues like safety, crime, and economic growth. We look forward to learning more about YOU and what brought and keeps you here in the community!

We’re focused on developing a strategic plan by the end of 2022 that reflects the top priorities for neighborhood businesses. Designation as a New Mexico MainStreet Urban Neighborhood Commercial Corridor has provided a tremendous boost of technical expertise, training and funding opportunities – but we cannot create a workable action plan without YOU!

2020 Fox Park Christmas Luminarias

Fair West Neighbors, please help these candles realize the dream denied to them last year. The dream to be Fox Park Christmas Luminarias. These 147 candles were nestled their sandy beds, snug in their paper bag home ready to be set to be set ablaze to help Fair West Neighbors bring in Christmas last year, but nature damped their dreams. The rains destroyed the bags, but we saved these candles from destruction. We are asking for your help to keep the luminarias in the park tradition alive this year.Make as many luminarias as your family would like. Come to 616 Valencia Drive NE and rescue candles from the plastic delivery box on the south end of the porch. Put your luminarias up around Fox Memorial Park Christmas Eve. We will have a crew ready to light them at night fall.

If you would like to be part of the lighting crew, send an email, Katherine Turner, FWNA President at ABQFairWestPresident@gmail.com.

When you pick up your candles be sure to also get the 2021 Headwaters Calendar, Celebrating the San Juan-Chama Project. These beautiful calendars are provided by the Water Authority to neighborhood associations every year to give out as a gift to the community.
