Santolina: Smart Growth Or Public Health Risk?
KUNM Call In Show 5/7 8a:
Bernalillo County commissioners are considering a residential development plan to build almost 40,000 new homes west of Albuquerque. Developers say it’s a smart, efficient way to plan for population growth and boost the local economy—but critics say it will hurt public health and burden dwindling water supplies. We’ll talk with Santolina’s planning team, public health researchers and South Valley farmers.
Bernalillo County commissioners will consider the Santolina Master Plan again on Monday May 11, 2015.
