Bob McCannon Parkway Dedication

WHEREAS, Robert McCannon lived in the Ladera West neighborhood off of Ouray Road since 1987 during which time he was a dedicated volunteer to the community and worked with all levels of government[] to make his community a beautiful and safe place to live; and

WHEREAS, Bob and his wife Shariesse McCannon started the Ladera West Neighborhood Association in 1988, always serving on the board and serving the community as president of his neighborhood association for several decades, and at all times working with elected officials, the police department, and other neighborhood associations to better the Westside and the City of Albuquerque; and

WHEREAS, Bob also worked with multiple Mayors, the members of the Albuquerque City Council, and the Parks and Recreation Department to renovate and keep the Ladera Golf Course “up to par” and see its revitalization with a new irrigation system…

Thus begins the Resolution, spearheaded by our dedicated City Councilor Ken Sanchez, and passed earlier this year, to dedicate and rename Ouray Road to honor the memory of LWNA’s long-serving President, Bob McCannon.

On Tuesday, September 29th there was a dedication ceremony for the newly signed “Bob McCannon Parkway,” attended by Shariesse and Bob’s family, community leaders, friends and neighbors.  It was a warm and moving celebration of someone who helped all of us here in Ladera West so much, and we were pleased to be a part of this tribute.

If you were unable to be there, please share in the celebration through some photos of both the dedication and the new street signs:

On behalf of LWNA, we thank Bob and Shariesse for their years of dedication!!!

    Nice dedication and idea. But I must say having 3 names for a short stretch of road is confusing, especially when your trying to give directions. It would make things easier to have one name. Are the rest of the signs going to change on the West side of Unser and where you exit the Frontage and I40?

    Also I need the names of the members involved with the neighborhood watch. Or a contact email?
