Carlito Springs Improvements

The county will continue to develop Carlito Springs according to the 2012 Cultural Landscape Report and Master Plan. Building on the improvements completed in 2014, the county is using State Capital Outlay funds to design water system improvements and rehabilitation of the main house and the cabins. Programming and space needs are being explored for an intergovernmental research center, retreat center, and possible baracks for volunteers working within the Bernalillo County Open Space Program. Part of the effort will be to determine appropriate site strategies and locations for ADA access to the historic main house, including an accessible picnic area. Site landscaping plans will focus on rehabilitation of the historic pools, planting beds and orchards, as well as appropriate weed and integrated pest management, a forest management plan and wildlife habitat restoration. Future programming at Carlito Springs will include land health monitoring, youth education programs and volunteer efforts such as SiteWatch and the Carlito Springs Volunteer Cohort.
