June 19 - Santolina Developers Respond to criticisms

Earlier this week the Bernalillo County Commissioners voted 3-2 to approve the first step for a Master plan for a controversial housing development called Santolina. Critics opposed to the plan say it will take more than its share of water and is unnecessary considering the lack of growth in the Albuqueque area. Douglas Meiklejohn of the Environmental Law Center spoke to us on wednesday about their pending lawsuit. Representatives of the plan also wanted their voices heard. KSFR's Zelie Pollon spoke to Tom Garritty of The Garrity group which represents the development on how they see the development helping New Mexico's growth.
