Last Step to Make Albuquerque’s Complete Streets Ordinance Real – Urge Mayor Berry to sign this legislation. City Council passing the Complete Streets Ordinance last Wednesday was a major step, but now the last step is Mayor Berry signing this piece of legislation.

Please contact the Mayor urging him to sign the Complete Streets Ordinance (O-14-27) that was unanimously passed by City Council.
