GHSCGNA Semi-Annual Meeting
We will be having our next semi-annual meeting beginning 6pm on Thursday, September 18, 2014 at the James Dwyer Community Room located on the south side of Montgomery, about 1 block east of Tramway.
We will announce presenters in the near future.
The meeting usually lasts from 1 to 2 hours.
Limited parking is available at the James Dwyer Center, and additional parking is available at the bus station immediately below / west of the Center.
Everyone is welcome, GHSCGNA members and non-members as well as those from other neighborhoods who are interested in attending.
You may have recently received a mailer from a web based service called 'Nextdoor' for which one of our neighbors registered our neighborhood.
The GHSCGNA does not support the use of Nextdoor. Nextdoor provides the same service as our GHSCGNA Message Board already provides.
Nextdoor requires you to provide them with your name and email information to register and use their service. They claim they do not provide your personal information to anyone else. GHSCGNA also requires you to provide your name and email information to register for our Message Board. We cannot vouch for Nextdoor, but we know we do not provide your information to anyone else for ay reason.
Nextdoor is a free service and it's unclear what Nextdoor uses as income to pay for the announcement mailers they sent out to our neighbors. Our guess is that Nextdoor will either be advertisement driven (something we don't bother you with on our Message Board) or they may begin charging members at some time in the future to cover Nextdoor's costs. Our Message Board is supported by your annual dues and is supported by volunteers donating their time to maintain the Message Board and the website.
GHSCGNA will continue to provide you with any information we receive, from the city, APD, and etc., via our Message Board.
GHSCGNA will not provide the city information we receive to the Nextdoor site, so we recommend you continue to monitor / participate in the GHSCGNA Message Board as your primary method of receiving the neighborhood information we are receiving.
Your GHSCGNA Board

About Our Neighborhood
Our neighborhood is made up of more than 625 households. Neighborhood development started in the mid 1970's, and there are 5 Subdivisions within our neighborhood: Glenwood Hills South, Casa Grande, Glenwood Square, Pheasant Hill and Prairie Dog Ridge. Our boundaries are roughly from Candelaria on the south side and Tramway to the west side, to Commanche on the north side and Camino de la Sierra on the east side.
The Neighborhood Association was created in the year 2000 with the City of Albuquerque to promote a better neighborhood and community through group action, so that the quality of life in the area shall be in keeping with the social, environmental, cultural and historic needs and interests of the residents. To this end, the activities of the Association shall include, but are not limited to, sponsoring cooperative planning, research, fund-raising, and public education programs as they are deemed necessary.
The original goal of the neighborhood was safety. Concerns for traffic control and property damage led to a meeting of concerned residents in June of 2000. As a result of that meeting members of the neighborhood met with the City to form an association. In September of 2000 the Neighborhood Association was formed and officially recognized by the City. The Association has accomplished many things to make this a better neighborhood since that original meeting.
A sign that a neighborhood is desirable is when new homes are being built in it. Some new homes have been built recently and many have undergone extensive remodeling. This is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Albuquerque. It is close to town, mature, borders the Open Space, and has large homes with spacious lots.
