The intersection of Fourth St. and Osuna Rd. in Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, as seen in 2002. (Dean Hanson/Albuquerque Journal) Copyright © 2022 Albuquerque Journal Los Ranchos de Albuquerque trustees voted 3-0 to extend until the end of December a moratorium on applications for the village's Pilot Project and Conservation Development program, which requires a developer to give a percentage of a project site to the village for use as open space. The vote, taken during a special trustees meeting on Wednesday, is the latest ripple in a controversy that has been boiling since village residents became aware this past summer that four high-density development projects – one of which had received final approval – were in the works for the Fourth and Osuna area.
