Zoning Change Recommended for New Garbage Transfer Station in Albuquerque, N.M.

If the recommendation is adopted, it would reverse a ruling made by City Code Compliance Manager Andrew Garcia.

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.
