El Vado announcement possibly coming

Jerry Ueckert of the Edgewood (N.M.) Advocate told the Route 66 yahoogroup that an announcement is rumored to be coming later today from Albuquerque Mayor Martin Chavez regarding El Vado Motel.

As many of you readers know, El Vado has been the subject of a lengthy battle between a developer who wants to raze the historic Route 66 motel and city officials who want to preserve it.

Chavez has said several times that the city would condemn the property to preserve it if a settlement was not reached with the owner. But whether this will be part of the announcement remains unknown until it happens.

Cross your fingers.

UPDATE: Story is here.
