On the far west side of Los Lunas, south of NM Route 6 and west of US Interstate Highway 25, there has been a building frenzy going on for the last 3 years or so. Several building contractors have been busily erecting a whole new neighborhood of single family homes. There is no formal area name as yet; Sundance has been one neighborhood name I have heard bandied about. Huning Homes is another. The city recently built a beautiful, large elementary school here and they named it Sundance Elementary School, presumably after the Sundance Construction Developers. On the other hand, the new school abuts a huge hill formerly belonging to the Huning family which they recently donated to the city for a park, not to mention that Mr. Huning has been Mayor of Los Lunas for many years. I personally think they ought to name the area after me, if for no other reason than I would like repaint half the houses red, purple, blue, green, white and something other than the horrible same brown sand color every single house is colored now. There must be a couple of hundred of these boring look-alike homes. Of course the homeowners can't do it. They have a neighborhood association and nothing on the exterior can be changed without the association's approval. Sounds sick to me. No individuality allowed.
