EDo Board to Meet with Mayor on Top Goals
The 10 member board will meet with Mayor Richard Berry on April 26th to brief him and three key staff members on the EDo Master Plan, and the Board's top goals for 2010.
     First, the Board wants to implement an on-street parking management plan for Central Avenue, and the commercial portion of the blocks just north and south of Central. These streets are Arno, Edith, Walter, High and Elm. The parking would be metered during business hours Monday through Saturday.  It would be free and unlimited all other hours.
     If this type of parking plan sounds familiar, it's the same arrangement found near UNM and in Nob Hill. The purpose of the parking program, here as there, is to provide visible and available parking to patrons of EDo retail businesses - those operating now, and those to come - during the business day.  After 6 PM, they belong to the residents.
     All other parking in the neighborhood will remain free and unrestricted.
     Second is the Board's hope to establish a Business Improvement District, or BID. The purpose of the BID would be to provide marketing and image enhancement services for EDo, as well as additional clean and safe services. BIDs are used frequently and effectively across the country in emerging residential and commercial neighborhoods like EDo.  
     We all want to see more convenient neighborhood services, more residents, more pedestrians and fewer parking lots.  The EDo BID will work toward those achievements.  
     Finally, the EDo Board believes the Mayor and the City Council must play a key role in the redevelopment of the First Baptist Church property, which has been vacated and is being sold.  The proper development of this site is the key to continued progress in making EDo Albuquerque's most convenient, safe, diverse, walkable neighborhood.
     The Board will seek to partner with the Mayor and his team to achieve these goals. 

World Premiere of "Stealing the Light" at the Kimo Theater This Friday
Please join local non-profit Caravan To Peace and their guests on Friday, April 9th at 7:00 PM for this exciting and worthy event.
     The evening will benefit a peaceful Afghani school destroyed in the war.  Aimie Burns' documentary captures the amazing resilience of the school's founder and its students.  
     The event kicks off with a concert by world-famous musician Rahim Ahaj, and a silent auction sponsored by local businesses.  
     A great cause and an enjoyable evening! or 505-255-2042 for tickets and more information.
Scene & Herd in EDo
Rumors abound concerning a possible new restaurant and some new retailers opening in EDo in 2010. We hope definite announcements will follow.   
     There are significantly more potential home buyers looking at EDo this year versus last.  We even hear of plans for the purchase of an under-loved but beautiful historic home in Huning Highlands finding an owner who will bring it back to life.  
     And have you seen the framing on top of Hotel Parq Central?  That, dear readers, will be The Apothecary, the rooftop bar that will afford EDo's best views!  Opening still planned for this Fall.
