BernCo Commissioners Approve Legislative Policy and Capital Outlay Priorities for Upcoming Session

01/15/2020

The Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners approved a list of capital outlay funding requests that the county is asking the New Mexico Legislature to fund during its 2020 session that begins in Santa Fe on Tuesday, Jan. 21.

Capital outlay funds are those used by local government to design, build, renovate, improve or equip physical property that will be used by the public. Roads, information technology equipment, playgrounds, parks, vehicles, schools, storm drainage and utility lines and specific types of equipment can all be capital outlay projects.

Legislative policy requests involve substantive legislation being passed that is in the best interests of Bernalillo County finances, programs, initiatives, and its constituents.

    • Art Along the Rio Grande: Experience Nature Through the Artists' Lens is a visual exploration of the ecological and cultural richness of the South Valley’s Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge. The exhibit is a joint project of the Refuge, Gutiérrez Hubbell House, Friends of Valle de Oro, Hubbell House Alliance, and Bernalillo County Public Art. Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge is the Southwest’s first urban refuge, located in the South Valley, just a few miles south of downtown Albuquerque. The refuge is in the process of restoring a former dairy farm back to a mosaic of native New Mexico habitats in order to provide an oasis for wildlife as well as an abundance of education and recreation opportunities for the community. The exhibit showcases the work of local artists in diverse mediums. For the past 7 years, photographers of all ages and skill levels have been invited to participate in an annual photo contest hosted by the refuge, to capture images of the refuge's wildlife, landscapes and people. This exhibit will feature the winning images from the 2019 photo contest, highlighting the refuge this past year as it begins restoration. Sketches and images from the Fall 2019 field mural project featuring 5 women muralists will be on display at GHH. The murals can still be seen at the Refuge, while sketches, photos, and other works reflect the goals and processes of the artists. Artwork by local Artist Wren Walraven, will also be featured. Wren’s artwork content comes from her personal experiences with wildlife, her passion for those animals and the magical desert scenery. Join us in this celebration of the South Valley’s environmental beauty, creativity, and community connections.
