Albuquerque Public Schools proposes to construct a stadium and other sports facilities on Arroyo Vista north of Interstate 40, southwest of the intersection of Arroyo Vista and Tierra Pintada. The sports facilities site is referred to as the “APS Recreation Complex”. The proposed Stadium project is essentially Phase I of the “APS Recreation Complex”, and the focus of this study. A vicinity map is attached as labeled Figure 1. The “APS Recreation Complex” facility will consist of a 7,000-seat football stadium, an adjacent soccer field with a track that seats 2,600 people, soccer fields in drainage facilities, and tennis courts. Future plans include baseball fields to the east of the soccer field. The facility is not anticipated to be used for practice sessions as those will be conducted at each individual school. As the competitions are only held during specific times of the year, the traffic analysis to the site will consider the activities as “special events”.
Additionally, the City of Albuquerque is strongly considering a “City Regional Park” facility at the west edge of the “APS Recreation Complex.”
