ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Albuquerque residents packed a meeting on the city's Bosque redevelopment plan Wednesday night.
The City Council has set aside almost $3 million for the Rio Grande Vision, an idea to add boardwalks, bathrooms and kayaking to the Bosque.
A lot of people voiced opposition Wednesday to any development of the riverside woodlands:
“The issue with the mayor's plan is that it is converting the Bosque from a place where you go to really enjoy nature into an urban park type of environment,” said Richard Barish of the Sierra Club.
Barbara Baca of the Albuquerque Parks and Recreation Department said, “We've been managing the Bosque for years. We have an opportunity now for a little bit of money to go to improving that recreational experience.”
Another meeting about the issue will take place in two weeks.
