A PLAN TO REVAMP THE WAY PEOPLE GET AROUND IN ALBUQUERQUE IS MOVING FORWARD. THE MAYOR SAYS TO THINK OF IT LIKE A SUBWAY WITH A VIEW-- A RAPID BUS SYSTEM CONNECTING SOME OF THE BUSIEST PARTS OF THE CITY. AS NEWS 13'S TINA JENSEN REPORTS... THE IDEA HAS BEEN IN THE WORKS FOR A WHILE-- AND NOW-- THE MAYOR SAYS IT'S REACHED A TIPPING POINT. AS MALCOM GLADWELL WOULD SAY, WE'RE STARTING TO REACH THAT TIPPING POINT 9:15 A TIPPING POINT.. BECAUSE THE CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE SENT THE FEDS THEIR THREE- YEAR STUDY FOR A BUS RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM ON CENTRAL...AND IT GOT THE GREEN LIGHT TO GO INTO THE DEVELOPMENT PHASE. THAT MEANS THE CITY PASSED THE FIRST STEP TOWARD GETTING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF MATCHING FEDERAL FUNDS FOR THE BRT. IT'S LIKE A RAIL SYSTEM ON WHEELS. BUSES WOULD HAVE THEIR OWN LANE-- AND STOP LIGHTS WOULD BE TIMED TO KEEP IT MOVING. IT WOULD RUN FROM 98TH STREET TO TRAMWAY. SO WHAT'S NEXT FOR THE PROJECT? THE CITY KEEPS DESIGNING... AND WORKING TOWARDS FINAL APPROVAL. THE CENTRAL LINE IS ONE OF THREE POTENTIAL BUS RAPID TRANSIT LINES IN THE CITY... ANOTHER ONE'S PLANNED FOR PASEO... AND THE MID-REGION COUNCIL OF GOVERNMENTS IS GETTING READY TO SUBMIT ITS STUDY OF A ROUTE NEAR CNM, UNM AND THE SUNPORT TO THE FEDS. 8:10 COUPLED WITH WHAT MR COG IS DOING, THEIR BRT PLANS - 20 YEARS PUBLIC STANDPOINT WILL BE A LOT MORE ROBUST 8:20 ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT .. ALBUQUERQUE WAS ONE OF FIVE CITIES NATIONWIDE TO BE CHOSEN FOR THE "LIVING CITIES" GRANT FUNDED BY MAJOR CHARITIES AND FOUNDATIONS FOR URBAN RENEWAL. ALBUQUERQUE WILL GET GRANT MONEY WHICH WILL BE USED TO HELP DEVELOP DOWNTOWN -- THAT MONEY COULD ALSO GO TOWARDS THE BRT. 8:03 MY HOPE IS THAT DURING MY SECOND TERM AS MAYOR, I WILL BE ABLE TO CUT THE RIBBON ON THE FIRST MAJOR BUS RAPID TRANSIT LINE IN ALBUQUERQUE. THE MAYOR'S OFFICE WLL GET AN INITIAL 100-THOUSAND DOLLARS FROM LIVING CITIES TO PLAN WHAT TO DO WITH ADDITIONAL GRANT MONEY... LIVING CITIES FOCUSES ON PROJECTS THAT HELP LOW-INCOME RESIDENTS.

WELCOME BACK. THIS IS EYE ON NEW MEXICO, JOINED WITH MAYOR RICHARD BERRY, MAYOR OF ALBUQUERQUE. ALWAYS GOOD TO TALK TO YOU. WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THE IMPORTANT TOPICS, MOVING TO ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BECAUSE YOU CAN'T GET OUT OF A CONVERSATION IN THIS TOWN WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT SOME KEY THINGS. ONE, JOBS, AND TWO, HOW WE'RE DOING AS ECONOMY AND WHEN IT COMES TO JOBS, THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SOME REALLY GREAT NEWS WITH TESLA. YOU AND YOUR TEAM HAVE WORKED AND MAKING ALBUQUERQUE AS ATTRACTIVE AS POSSIBLE. >> IT IS ACTUALLY MUCH LARGER NATIONAL DISCUSSION ABOUT WHAT THE JOB PATH IN AMERICAN IS DOING. TESLA WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE IN NEW MEXICO. WE'RE DOING EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MAKE SURE THEY SEE US AS ATTRACTIVE PLACE TO BE. EFFORT GOING ON BETWEEN THE STATE, CITY, ALBUQUERQUE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, WHICH IS RUN BY GARY TONGIS AND HIS TEAM, VERY HIGH LEVEL DISCUSSIONS TO BRING THIS GREAT PROJECT HERE. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THEM. A LOT OF PEOPLE FEEL THEY ARE USING NEW MEXICO TO TRY TO BOLSTER A COMPETING STATE. ANY TRUTH TO THAT. WE HAVE THIS DISCUSSION ANY TIME ANYBODY COMES TO TOWN. YOU KNOW, COMPANIES HAVE OPTIONS WHERE THEY GO. THEY ARE GOING TO GO PLACES THAT HAVE VIABLE WORKFORCES AND GREAT QUALITY OF LIFE, NATURAL RESOURCES, MORE COMPETITIVE TAX CODES, THANKS TO MARTINEZ AND FRIENDS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE IN THE LEGISLATURE, NEW MEXICO IS BEST TAX ENVIRONMENTS FOR MANUFACTURERS IN THE WESTERN U.S. ALL OF THOSE THINGS COME TOGETHER. THOSE ALL TOOK ACCOUNT AS WELL AS LOGISTICS. WE'RE KNOW WE'RE IN THE RUNNING. NOBODY IS GOING TO MAKE A MULTI BILLION INVESTMENT WITHOUT LOOKING AT OPTIONS. WE WANT TO MAKE SURE WE PUT OUR BEST FOOT FORWARD AND SHOW THEM WHY WE THINK THIS IS A GREAT PLACE FOR THEM AND LET THE EXPERTS GO IN AND DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN. YOU PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD. WHEN IT COMES TO WHAT WE CAN OFFER AS A CITY OR STATE, DO YOU THINK WE'RE THERE? DO YOU THINK WE'RE IN A PLACE WHERE WE ARE OFFERING THE BEST POSSIBLE PACKAGE OR DO YOU THINK THAT THERE IS STILL WORK FOR YOU THE CITY COUNCIL, GOVERNOR AND LEGISLATURE. THERE IS ALWAYS WORK BECAUSE AS THE JOB ENVIRONMENT ECONOMIC ENVIRONMENT GLOBALLY CHANGES WE'LL CONTINUALLY HAVE TO RESET, PIVOT AND CREATE NEW OPPORTUNITIES AND THAT IS NO DIFFERENT THAN ATLANTA OR SAN FRANCISCO OR ALBUQUERQUE. THAT IS JUST THE WAY IT WORKS. THAT IS THE WAY COMPANIES WORK. YOU JUSTCAN'T DO THE SAME THING AS A COMPANY ALL DAY EVERYDAY FOR EVER. TO MAKE CHANGES AND GO WITH THE FLOW OF WHAT THE ECONOMY IS DOING. I CAN LOOK ANYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY IN THE EYE AND TELL THEM THEY SHOULD BE IN ALBUQUERQUE NEW MEXICO. I BELIEVE THAT. I AM A PERSON THAT HAS A FAMILY BUSINESS HERE IN ALBUQUERQUE, MADE PAYROLLS, HAD TO SWEAT THE DETAILS AND TRY TO GROW A COMPANY. A FAMILY BUSINESS THAT WORKED IN THE FIVE STATE REGION. I KNOW WHAT IS LIKE TO DO BUSINESS THERE AND I CAN LOOK ANYBODY IN THE EYE AND TELL THEM ALBUQUERQUE IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE. WITH THAT SAID, WE NEED TO CONTINUE TO BE COMPETITIVE FROM A BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT, FROM A TAX ENVIRONMENT. WE NEED -- THE REASON WE ARE WORKING ON SO MANY THINGS LIKE RUNNING START FOR CAREERS, WHERE WE ARE BRINGING PEOPLE TO TALK TO HIGH SCHOOLS, TALENT ALBUQUERQUE, THROUGH INNOVATE EDUCATE, PUTTING 26 SKILL CENTERS AROUND THE CITY, MISSION GRADUATE, ADDING 60,000 COLLEGE DEGREES WHICH I AM A PART OF THAT, ALL OF THESE THINGS, WHAT CNM IS DOING, WHAT UNM IS DOING, INNOVATE ABQ DOWNTOWN, BIG ANNOUNCEMENT FROM CNM ABOUT BRINGING A MAKER SPACE FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES. REVITALIZATION DOWNTOWN, ALL THINGS COME INTO PLAY. IF YOU LOOK AT 10 YEAR PATH OF WHERE JOBS GO, PROFESSIONAL JOBS, WHERE YOU HAVE THE CREATE AND THINK, ARE GOING TO INCREASE. LOW PAYED SERVICE JOBS, TAKING CARE OF ELDERLY FOLKS, HEALTHCARE, HOME HEALTHCARE TYPE THINGS, RETAIL, JOBS THAT WE LOVE BUT THEY ARE NOT AS HIGH PAYING ARE GOING TO INCREASE AS WELL. WHAT IS NOT GOING CONTINUE TO CEASE ARE TRADITIONAL MID OLE CLASS JOBS THAT MOM AND DAD AND GRANDPA HAD WORKED IN FACTORIES MAKING EXTRAORDINARY WAGE. WE HAVE TO RESET THAT NATIONALLY, THAT IS WHY ALBUQUERQUE IS SEEN ON THE FOREFRONT OF THAT.
