Just Looking, Albuquerque Meadows, Albuquerque, NM
My family has owned land in VC since the 70's. My father was a Viet Nam vet, who bought into it with a bunch of other vets. The city of Albuquerque has basically taken the land to give to developers to make a 'Portland style' high density living space, expecting the land owners to donate up to 30% of their land for the city to use as it wants, be it parks, schools etc., hence the law suit. It's a shame that this is the way the city has decided to handle the retirement investment of a bunch of veterans, many of whom are now dying, having waited decades to do something with their land. Most people do not move out west to live in tiny apartments above shops, and in fact that is exactly what they move here to get away from! Anyway, noone really knows what is happening, as last I heard some of the city council had been hired as consultants by the developer (standard pratice here, apparently), so the city may just end up calling 'imminent domain', and stealing the land. Gotta love the Duke City...
