ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Should the Albuquerque Bosque stay the same or get some enhancements in the name of development?
The city wants input on the issue Wednesday night.
Some of the ideas include adding a boardwalk, public bathrooms, even canoes and kayaks.
Those are just a few of the ideas the city of Albuquerque is throwing around to fill up this big, green natural setting that surrounds the river.
It's called the Rio Grande Vision.
The city council's already set aside almost $3 million that could be used to develop the area. But not everyone thinks that's money well spent.
One biker says the Bosque is perfect the way it is. He says he fears that with more development, there will be more people and more safety hazards for bikers and others on the trail.
“I think if you bring food and stuff for resting, people will congregate in this one area and they'll have a tough time going past," Larry Jones said.
Most people KRQE News 13 talked to say that public bathrooms would be a welcome addition.
If you want to voice your opinion on the matter, head on over to the Albuquerque Museum from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday.
If you miss the meeting Wednesday, another meeting is scheduled in two weeks.
