Catron Courier - - Opinions & Editorials -

As noted in the Ca­tron Com­mis­sioner meet­ing notes, the Com­mis­sion­ers drafted a let­ter to send re­gard­ing the San­tolina devel­op­ment that is planned for Ber­nalillo county, stat­ing that they would op­pose send­ing any wa­ter from Ca­tron County to this devel­op­ment. The Pue­blo of Isleta has also come out in op­po­si­tion to the devel­op­ment.

For any­one in­ter­ested in learn­ing more about the San­tolina devel­op­ment, which starts with a 38,000 home devel­op­ment that may pull wa­ter from out­side Ber­nalillo county, a story was re­cently pub­lished in The Guardian and can be found on­line at: www.the­guardian.com/ cities/2015/may/19/bar­claysc­ity-new-mex­ico-desert­san­tolina-ur­ban-sprawlal­bu­querque#com­ments
