Petroglyph National Monument - History of the Atrisco (U.S. National Park Service)
The Atrisco Land Grant
The Spanish land tenure or land grant system was a practice brought from Spain to establish economic development and settlement in New Mexico. Prominent individuals requested large parcels of land and their ownership was granted by a Spanish official or by the King of Spain. The Rio Grande and its surrounding valley were lush with native vegetation therefore Spanish settlers considered this land ideal for settlement, agricultural and grazing purposes. The Coronado expedition of 1540, led by Captain Hernando de Alvarado, marked the earliest sightings of what would later become known as the Valle de Atrisco in the present Albuquerque area.

Sadly Rich, SunCal owns most of it now.. 120,000+ homes in the future.

Why not just name it South Valley or just Atrisco

I think its a bad move on the behalf of the South Valley and if incorporated will have one of the highest crime rates and poverty.

It will be one of the worst cities in New Mexico.. but anyways, South valley isnt even a good name. They should break the city in two portions, up near the subdivsions, Weedville and in the Valley Loco Hills.. oh wait its already taken haha just messing I have family there..

Seriously a name like

- Farming Meadow
- Bloomington
(I like this one) -Blooming Crest

Valle de Atrisco..Not many people would think thats even in the US



DID YOU KNOW ....

Santa Fe's real city name is: La Villa Real de La Santa Fe de San Fransico de Asis.

How about "Spralling Boomtown". At least that would be descriptive.

Boomtown implies the place is doing well.

Not sure that fits, actually.

I've heard "the hood" used.

Personally I think we're 10 years away from seeing any incorporation taking place. Economy's not great, and the additional bureaucracy (mayor, mayor's office, council, etc., municipal buildings, etc.) in and of itself will create a huge expense.

No worse than writing Ranchos de Taos.
