County Commission Approves Revenue Bonds for New Workforce Housing Development


Bernalillo County Commissioners approved the issuance of $8 million in multi-family housing revenue bonds for the Valle del Rio Apartments in the southwest part of the county.

Residents eligible for workforce housing can live in this 58-unit affordable housing project which will be located near Bridge Blvd. and Orchard Garden Rd.

“This will give low and moderate income, working seniors, a new housing option in the south valley, says Commissioner Steven Michael Quezada. “This is a great use of a space that had rundown, dilapidated, boarded up apartments that can now be a viable nice-looking apartment complex.”

It’s estimated the project’s construction will generate $15 million in economic impact from construction activity, support 113 direct and indirect jobs, and generate $5 million in direct and indirect construction salaries for area workers.

Project Revenue Bonds are issued by the county and backed by investors. The bonds are repaid through income from the financed project.

The bonds were approved by the commission by a 4 to 0 vote. Commissioner Talbert was excused from the meeting.
