Albuquerque city council is expected to sign the dotted line on a grant from the state’s “New Mexico MainStreet” program Monday night.

If they do, Albuquerque’s Nob Hill will get a $48,000 grant from the state, and the city will chip in $10,000 worth of indirect costs to make it all work.

MainStreet money pays for programs like unified branding, promotions and area-wide events to get more people thinking of Nob Hill as a place to spend time and money.

New Mexico MainStreet has had a lot of success in towns like Taos and Roswell. In 2012, it helped create more than 600 jobs and expand 21 businesses, and got private investors cashing millions of dollars into MainStreet areas.

People with questions or comments about how the program could affect Nob Hill can weigh in during the public comment section. The city council meeting begins at 5 p.m. in city council chambers.
