After a nearly 30-year wait, Volcano Vista landowners can now get roads, sidewalks and water.
Albuquerque Mayor Richard Berry signed a measure Friday Authorizing the city to finance a Westside neighborhood associations' infrastructure efforts to enable economic development.
Residents are responsible for paying back the city for financing the project.
The neighborhood association connected with the property purchased 30 years ago requested hook-up to the city's utilities because it as difficult to build home without proper infrastructure.
And the property had been locked in legal battles with the city ever since, according to a press release.
In general, developers are required to build the necessary infrastructure associated with the development, but no one developer was connected with the project.
