ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A developer is planning a new city west of Albuquerque that could be home to 90,000 people in 50 years.
KOB-TV reports that developer Jim Strozier unveiled his plans for a city called Santolina through a new website.
Strozier says Santolina — a 13,000 acre master-planned community west of Albuquerque’s edge — won’t just be a mess of homes and will be planned out. But he says the biggest concern for the future city will be water.
According to plans, the city would have a town center, business park, and then industrial district along the west edge
He says the city has been in the planning stages for nearly two years but has yet to be approved by the Bernalillo County.
