Like most other cities in the nation, Albuquerque is suffering from lack of planning. It's growth is huge and hapazard. Deterioration and conjestion reveal itself throughout the city. To help fight this deterioration, Albuquerque has asked for federal funds. Unfortunately the appropriation received was not adequate enough to renew all of Albuquerque's deteriorating areas and a decision has been made to inject the funding into the central business district, Martinez Town, South Broadway and the Berelas Area. However, this is only a small portion of Albuquerque's depressed areas. Deterioration has spread through out the Southwest Valley. There is considerable evidence of it in Alemeda and Corrales as well, fortunately these areas are not being completely neglected. For the past three years, an organization called "The home improvement project" has been responding to the problems of economically depressed areas throughout the entire city.
