The issue came to light after 44% of Alamosa citizens told the City, through the Comprehensive Plan update, that the streets in Alamosa were bad or very bad. Only 29% of residents felt that the city was doing a good job of maintaining streets. Smoother roads, sidewalks, and bike lanes were all identified as top priorities.
