City of Santa Fe

Weekly Wrap

Highlights from the Week of June 6, 2022

Tennis Court Construction

ON THURSDAY, we held a ground-breaking at the Herb Martinez tennis courts to formally launch and celebrate major tennis court construction projects taking place at Atalaya, Herb Martinez, and Larragoite Parks from June through October 2022! The Parks and Open Space Division has contracted with certified tennis court builder Hellas Construction for the project, and secured $1.3 million dollars of funding through Gross Receipts Tax funds and impact fees for its completion. Once done, the courts are guaranteed to last 20 years and yearly maintenance costs will be minimal.

As one Parks project begins, another is just wrapping up – we hope you'll join us on Friday, June 17, for a ribbon-cutting of the new slide and playground equipment at Ragle Park. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m., and will be followed by our second #SantaFeSummer movie night at 6:30 p.m.

Reminder: Redistricting Meetings

Gun Violence Awareness

Last week, Councilors Amanda Chavez and Jamie Cassutt, State Representative Linda Serrato, School Board Member Sascha Anderson, and Superintendent Hilario "Larry" Chavez organized a public reading of Mayor Webber's Proclamation of June 3 as "Gun Violence Awareness Day" at the Southside Libraryand held a moment of silence held for the lives lost in Uvalde, Texas. Thank you to the community members and officials who joined us!


SFFD Extinguishes House Fire

On Tuesday, our firefighters responded to and quickly contained a fire in a multi-unit house complex on the south side of Santa Fe. Fortunately, the blaze did not result in any losses of life, but it's an important reminder of the dangers of fire and of how quickly they can spread once ignited. Indoors or out, fire safety is critical at any time of year, and especially now in our current drought conditions. Let's all do our part to stop fires before they start.

Summer Food for All

Our Youth and Family Services Division is sponsoring one of the locations for The Food Depot’s Summer Food Program. Access to food during the summer is critical for youth and families who rely on School Lunch Programs for meals when school is in session. The Food Depot ensures access to regular weekday meals during the summer by bringing food into the community via this program.
