Bernalillo County – County Commissioners approved funding for up to $2 million for phase two of the Carlito Springs Open Space renovations project in the East Mountains.

Phase two project renovations will include the main house, public spaces and a caretaker unit.

“Carlito Springs is a crown jewel property in the county’s open space program and was recently recognized for the State Register of Historic Places,” says County Commissioner Charlene E. Pyskoty. “The planned renovations will grant improved access and capacity for visitors and will be a treasured retreat in the East Mountains.”

Phase one of the project is currently underway and involves construction of all of the site work and infrastructure including parking, landscaping, roadways, water systems, and sewer.

BernCo estimates the construction and renovations of both phases to be complete by early 2022, at which time the property and building will be reopen to the public.

The funding resolution passed on a 5 – 0 vote.
