Districts are as follows for road improvements: 6 miles at a time
Previously, the main roads were bad. Now it’s like right outside my house — Matt Geisel, City Manager
At the Italian American Association luncheon, Rio Rancho Regional Chamber of Commerce President Jerry Schalow, Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull and City Manager Matt Geisel briefed local and national businesses the future of the city and its infrastructures.
In the future, Rio ancho can expect many things including roads, community events, funding for traveling educational exhibits at public libraries, renovations to public facilities, more inspector positions, as well as emergency vehicles and supplies.
But above all, roads and infrastructure are at the top of the list
“I have three generations of family in Rio Rancho and I want to see the next generations staying here,” Hull said.
Since the city got a lower interest rate on bond issues, it plans to invest more in infrastructure. This includes roads, libraries and recreation centers.
“Before, the main roads were bad. Now it’s like right in front of my house,” Geisel said.
Roads always have priority. Hull has announced that roads in the area will be the next to be refurbished.
However, no date has been given for these projects.
“Of course it will be six miles of road at a time because we want people to be able to get home,” Hull added.
The city also plans to add more entertainment and recreation facilities and restaurants.
“We have found a building to put more activities that will attract Gen Z groups and Millennials. I’m excited for pickleball,” Geisel said.
They plan to open a recreation center located at the Hub Plaza in Enchanted Hills in early 2023.
