At our last Chamber luncheon, City Manager Joshua Ray spoke of the downtown revitalization with the Metropolitan Redevelopment Area (MRA) study taking place now. It has been determined that there are various blighted areas in Aztec’s downtown district. This study was presented to Commission in 2015, by Frontier Community. The MRA District reports, an area must exhibit criteria specified by the New Mexico Legislature considered to be a deterrent to new development. This NEW study puts together a plan on how to best fix these areas. This study may allow additional eligibility for grants and other funds with this plan in place. We will keep you posted as we await the New Mexico finance authority to release the grant to the City to move forward.

Workshops at the HUB

The San Juan College Enterprise Center and its director, Judith Castleberry, who partnered with AARP, staged the first workshop, “Work for Yourself @50+,” at the HUB. The turnout was great! Attending were 19 participants and four business service providers. In addition Michael Petrick, Program Manager for AARP Foundation Work for [email protected]+ attended the workshop. Mr. Petrick brought greetings from the AARP Foundation and encouraged the participants to use both the national and local resources. Our participants were from Aztec, Flora Vista, Bloomfield, and Durango. The draw not only from Aztec, but from throughout the Four Corners was exciting to see. You will find more information at the HUB for the next workshop by San Juan College’s Enterprise Center. Stop by to learn more. The Chamber, and now with the HUB and its many resources, can help your business prosper and grow. Thank you both for making this essential workshop possible.
