KUNM Call In Show 7/23 8a:
Albuquerque has been home to the Rio Grande Zoo since 1927 and its 64 acres of exhibits delight and teach children of all ages. Now the city is considering a master plan for the zoo’s next 20 years.
A new entry plaza, more room for big cats and a remodeled gorilla habitat could all be coming—IF there’s money to fund them. That’s why supporters are proposing a gross receipts tax increase that could raise $17 million for the zoo.
What do you love about the zoo? What needs work? What do you want to see happen over the next 20 years? And how much are you willing to pay for it?
