Neighborhood Clean-up THIS Saturday! *POSTPONED

Hello Neighbors! The clean-up on APRIL 29th is POSTPONED due to the inclement weather.  We’ll try and reschedule.

Great American Clean Up – Saturday, April 29th, 9am to 12pm (come for as little or as much as you can, it all makes a difference!). Meet at Rinconada Point Park (Bob McCannon Pkwy & Painted Rock) for bags & supplies.

Looking forward to seeing you there!!!  The LWNA Board

Clean Up Recap and Yard Sale Days Info

Hello Neighbors!

Last Saturday, April 30th, LWNA participated in the Great American Cleanup.  We are grateful for the wonderful volunteers (both in getting out the newsletters and at the clean-up itself) and for the City crew who went above and beyond picking up our trash bags by helping us clear out the tumbleweeds (i.e. fire hazard) in the arroyo and open space.  If you weren’t able to make it, we’re looking forward to next year’s event and will hopefully see you there!

Not only did we get the neighborhood looking great, we had a chance to chat and get to know our neighbors.  Check out the pictures from the event, below.

We also wanted to give you an update on the “yard sale days.” Clear out those closets and get ready for the sale weekend – beginning Thursday May 19th.  Have your sale as few or many days as you want – it’s up to you.  We will be advertising on craigslist, nextdoor and our marquees. So, with a neighborhood full of sales and free advertising it’s the perfect time to Spring clean and make a little bit of money!

Looking forward!

 

Neighborhood Clean Up Saturday April 30th

Dear Neighbors,

Just a friendly reminder about the Great American Cleanup which will take place this year on Saturday, April 30th.

Here’s the agenda:

anytime between 9:00 – 11:00: pick up your supplies (plastic bags, gloves, snacks and beverages) at Riconada Park; you’ll let the LWNA board members know what areas of the neighborhood you’ll be cleaning so that we can send a truck by to collect the city-issued bags after the clean-up.

anytime between 9:00 – 12:00: clean up the area of the neighborhood you selected and leave the bags at the end of the streets.

12:00 and forward: enjoy the fruits of your labor by admiring how nice the neighborhood looks!

While it’s not mandatory to sign-up ahead of time, it will help us get a head-count for supplies (and snacks!). Planning on participating? Sign up here:

West Side Day at the Roundhouse, Spring Clean Up and MORE!!!

Hello Neighbors!

Have you had enough of the winter doldrums and are ready to “Spring” into action?!?! Many of you have expressed an interest in getting more involved in the neighborhood. Well, you’re in luck –  there’s plenty of upcoming activity for the West Side!

The big kick-off is West Side Day at the Roundhouse – a chance to meet your representatives, take a tour and celebrate our late LWNA President Bob McCannon’s street naming.  See the flyer below for details and schedule.  (Other events are constantly updated under the “Events” tab to the right – check back often to see what’s new!)

Want to do something in the neighborhood itself?  Great!  April 25th is the Great American Cleanup and LWNA will be sponsoring a clean-up and other activities.  Stay tuned here for more details.  Don’t want to wait that long to get to work?  You can always help beautify the neighborhood in 15 minutes.

If you’re tired of solicitors or people who speed down your street, “Slow down Albuquerque”  and “Stop! No soliciting” signs are available for pick up at the APD Northwest Command Sub-Station, 10401 Cibola Lp NW (across from Cibola H.S.), 768-4850.  If you’re having trouble with litter or zoning problems, you can report those to the City.   There is a Senate Bill, 382, sponsored by our Senator, Jacob Candelaria, that would provide more enforcement of ordinances; contact Senator Candelaria to express your support.

Do you have other ideas for neighborhood activities or would you like to get more involved?  Great!  Send the LWNA board a message and we’ll get right back to you!

Looking forward to a great Spring in the neighborhood!
