The Board of Comanche Foothills wishes you Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and a great New Year
We are looking forward to a great 2018. We are planning the following events for next year: Easter Egg Hunt, Car Show, and National Night Out. Don’t forget to pay your dues to help fund and promote these 2018 events. You can now join by paying on-line at comanchefoothills.org
As President of the Comanche Foothills NA, I was invited to attend Mayor Tim Keller’s inauguration. Both the Treasurer and I were in attendance. We were very impressed with Mayor Keller’s all-inclusive attitude. He said, and we agree, not to blame past administrations but look forward to the changes we can make to improve Albuquerque. Also the time for complaining is over. It is time to get involved in our community. We are confident things are going to be much better during the next four years.
Neighborhood Association $10 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.
Last year Comanche Foothills membership dues were $25.00 and, upon review of our treasury balance and planned activities for the coming year, we have decided to reduce this year’s dues to $10 per household. Membership is for the 12 month calendar year starting January 1st.
Your dues help us to pay for the Annual Easter Egg Hunt event and a neighborhood Ice Cream Social / National Night Out event.
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.

National Night Out
Ice Cream Social Event
Tuesday, August 1st, was the 2nd Annual Comanche Foothills Annual National Night Out and Ice Cream Social Event held in the Casa Grande Linear Park, immediately south of Comanche.
About 95 neighbors attended the event and enjoyed free Ice cream while listening to neighborhood association updates from Paul Beck, President.
The event was also attended by Mayor Berry, his assistant Sara Mancini, the Office of Neighborhood Coordination, and a Foothills Police Department Sargent. Pictures of the event can be seen by clicking this link.
Neighborhood member Bob Bradley was honored for his dedication keeping the doggie bag dispensers full on the Linear Trail.
Some attendees renewed their membership at the event while others took home membership applications to mail in.
Comanche Foothills First Annual Car Show
Sunday, May 21st, 2017 we hosted the first Annual Comanche Foothills Car Show.
The YMCA set aside their East parking lot for us. It started at 1 PM and went on until almost 4. The show was well attended and we had about 20 cars and a truck. Ribbons were handed out to all participants.
All types of cars were presented from a 1932 Ford to 2017 Alfa Romeo and Jaguar. There were all original classics. Including two 1964½ and a 1967 Mustangs. GTOs, Corvettes, XKE
Jaguar and more high-performance vehicles. Most of the cars were from our neighborhood but a few were from around the YMCA.
We hosted it the same day as the Albuquerque Museum’s, which is the largest car show in New Mexico. Next year we will have them on different days. All in all it was a great turnout and we are looking forward to next years.

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.
