Welcome To The Comanche Foothills Neighborhood
(formerly the Glenwood Hills South Casa Grande Neighborhood Association)
It Was A GREAT National Night Out Event
The Comanche Foothills Neighborhood Association (formerly known as the Glenwood Hills South Casa Grande Neighborhood Association) held their first National Night Out Event August 2nd, 2016. The event was held on the linear park just south of Comanche.
About 50 of our neighbors and families attended this casual, meet and greet event where ice cream, cookies and water was provided. APD Lieutenant Eric Jordan and Sargent Anaya, and a city representative were in attendance, circulating through the crowd to socialize, educate and answer questions.
We want to thank Creamland Dairy, Staples Office Center, and G2 Realty for their donations and support of our event. Also thanks to APD and the City of ABQ for having their representatives in attendance.
A Call For Pictures
We have added a Photo Gallery to our website. We currently have pictures from past 5k Fun Runs, Easter Egg Hunt Events, Snowstorms and the Open Space.
We’d be happy to add your pictures to our webpage. We’re looking for any interesting pictures from neighborhood activities, events, wildlife and etc. We’d really appreciate any pictures from the 2016 Easter Egg Hunt we had on March April 26th.
If you have pictures you would like posted to our website, please email them to Webmaster@ComancheFoothills.org and we’ll get them posted!
Neighborhood Association $25 Membership Dues Now Due
Each year we ask our neighbors to renew their Comanche Foothills Neighborhood Association membership. This shows the city that we do represent our neighbors at the various local, district and city meetings we attend on your behalf.
Comanche Foothills membership has been $0.00 for many years as we had an excess of funds in our bank account and didn’t see the sense in charging for membership.
Your dues help us to pay for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt event and, new this year, a neighborhood Ice Cream Social.
We also use dues money for improvements such as a new neighborhood sign at the entrance to Comanche from Tramway, pay for planting flowers and maintenance of greenery on the Comanche median, and many neighborhood improvement activities to keep our neighborhood an attractive, beautiful place to live and play.
For these reasons the board has voted to increase annual dues to $25 per household beginning in 2016.
About The Comanche Foothills Neighborhood
In August 2014 the City of Albuquerque approved our requested name change from Glenwood Hills South Casa Grande Neighborhood Association to Comanche Foothills Neighborhood Association. We believe our Comanche Foothills name more accurately reflects where we are located and is easier to remember than our former name.
The Comanche Foothills neighborhood is located in the Northeast Heights of Albuquerque and 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. The Comanche Foothills Neighborhood Association boundaries are roughly from Candelaria on the south side and Tramway to the west side, to Comanche 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 necess
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.
