This Newsletter is an informal publication by the Board of the District 8 Coalition of Neighborhoods
for the residents in City Council District 8. It is not an official publication of the City of Albuquerque.

If possible, please share the information in this newsletter with the residents
in your neighborhood association.


For the past year, we have experimented with this online website
to provide information we think may be useful for
District 8 Coalition neighborhoods.

Much of the information is also being provided by the
City website, the APD websites, and also through
emails sent directly from the President and Secretary
of the District 8 Coalition of Neighborhood Associations.

As a result, we believe it is not worthwhile for the
District 8 Coaliton to renew the domain name registration or
to keep the account active for space on the server we use.

If you have a differing opinion, please send your comments
to the email address at the bottom of this page.

Thank you.


Thanks to Aziza Chavez, Councilor Jones’ Policy Analyst, many of us
have been receiving a handy monthly calendar of events from the Albuquerque
Cultural Services Office. For those who may not be on the mailing list, you
can view it by clicking on the button above.


District 8 is served by both the Foothills Area Command and the NorthEast Area Command

The new Foothills Area Commander is John Thies
The new Northeast Area Commander is Randy Remiker

The Foothills Area Command now has a website to keep Northeast Heights neighborhoods informed.

Be safe in your home:

If someone is at your door, you should never open the door if you are not expecting them or if you don't recognize the person.  However you should do something to let that person know someone is home.  You can yell “I'm busy” or just make a loud noise by slamming a nearby door inside.  Posting a "no solicitors" sign will deter most door-to-door solicitors.
Almost all of our residential burglary offenders are gaining entry to homes via breaking a window or sliding glass door in the rear of the residence.  Please be alert to anyone in your neighborhood knocking on front doors or ringing front doorbells and then making their way around the sides of homes to the back.  Lock up and if you have home alarms, please activate them.

Doggie doors being used as points of entry for residential burglaries again.  Secure your doggie doors!
