The City of Albuquerque, N.M., is planning to build a new garbage transfer station, which many locals oppose. In response of the opponents’ concerns, a land-use hearing officer at City Hall is recommending that city councilors require a zoning change before the project is built.
If the hearing officer’s recommendation is adopted, it would reverse a ruling made by City Code Compliance Manager Andrew Garcia, who recently decided that the new transfer station is a “permissive activity” in light manufacturing zones.

Opponents of the city’s plan to build a garbage transfer station at Edith and Comanche NE have won a round in their fight against the project.
A land-use hearing officer at City Hall is recommending that city councilors require a zoning change – a process that requires a public hearing – before the project can be built.
His recommendation, if adopted, would reverse a ruling from the city code compliance manager, Andrew Garcia, who decided in June that the transfer station is a “permissive activity” in light manufacturing zones like the Edith and Comanche property.
