Since 1995, residents of Albuquerque have met to define the community conditions they view as most important to ensure the city is an active, thriving, culturally rich, and sustainable high desert community. The Albuquerque Goals Forum is one of the primary methods the city utilizes to obtain resident input into the city’s goal setting process. Participants at the forum play a vital role by describing the future Albuquerque they would like to see. The focus of the 2016 forum will be on describing the desired community conditions for two of the city’s eight goals:
The Albuquerque Indicators Progress Commission (IPC) is the convener of the forum in which residents have the opportunity to describe the future Albuquerque as a whole community, rather than the needs of any particular group or area. Your input can outline a meaningful path for elected officials and community leaders to follow.
Who Should Attend?
Seating is limited. Early registration is highly recommended.
What Happens at the Forum?
This will not be a typical conference with a series of presentations. There will be an opening session to set the context for the event, but the bulk of the forum is comprised of small group discussions among participants who care about the issues and want to contribute to Albuquerque’s progress.
Prior to the forum, participants are encouraged to review the 2014 Albuquerque Progress Report. This report provides a basis for the discussions held during the forum. See the Reports tab for more background information on the city’s existing goals.
What Happens after the Forum?
Your suggestions will not sit on a shelf. Following the forum, the Indicators Progress Commission will use the input received to produce a report for the mayor and city council with a recommended vision, goals and desired community conditions. If adopted, your suggestions become an important part in guiding the city’s growth, providing city services, and assisting in allocating the city’s resources.
Note: We strive to accommodate the accessibility needs of our registrants. If you require any physical accommodations to participate, please register by July 1 so we can respond to your request.
