City of Santa Fe

Weekly Wrap

Highlights from the Week of June 13, 2022

Celebrate July 4th Safely

YOU'RE INVITED to the free Independence Day Community Fireworks Display on Monday, July 4, at the Santa Fe Place Mall from 4 to 10 p.m.! Fire restrictions, and a ban on dangerous and illegal fireworks, are in still in effect across the city, so our team is working closely with the Kiwanis Club to hold a fun holiday fireworks display for the community with safety as the first priority.


Legal fireworks are available for sale at approved locations, so we've put together a safety tips sheet if you choose to purchase them. Always take precautions before lighting fireworks, and be a good neighbor – to your human neighbors and your furry ones too – by keeping your celebrations to safe, sane displays that are planned in advance.

Remember, the best way to prevent fires and stay safe over the holiday weekend is to join us at the Santa Fe Place Mall on July 4, and let our fire personnel handle all the safety details while you enjoy the free show.

New Playground, Free Movies

We had a blast at our first free movie last week, and we're so glad you all could join us! We have another screening tonight at Ragle Park, and we'll also be celebrating the new playground equipment, so bring your blankets and snacks, wear your favorite jersey or sports uniform, grab a shaved ice from Rainbow Snow, and take a selfie in front of the #SantaFeSummer backdrop before we all sit down to watch “Angels in the Outfield” at 6:30 p.m.

City Solar Progress Continues

We're working on a variety of upgrades and improvements to our facilities that will save water, energy, taxpayer dollars, AND help us achieve our goal of a carbon neutral future. This week, the Santa Fe Public Library shared a snapshot of the Southside Branch's the solar carport installation. When completed, the new panels and the other sustainability improvements in their building will help avoid the equivalent of 27 homes worth of greenhouse gas emissions each year.


Water Your Garden Wisely

Our Water Conservation Office wants to remind everyone that from May through October, watering restrictions are in effect. Don't water outdoor plants and landscaping between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and no more than 3 times per week. This helps keep the water from evaporating before your plants can utilize it, and it's healthier for them too! If you notice water waste, you can also call the Water Conservation Office's water waste hotline (505-955-4222) to report it. 

Lend a Hand for Our Arroyos

Our partners at the Santa Fe Watershed Association are holding a cleanup of the Santa Fe River, its tributaries, and arroyos from June 20-26. Pick up your free trash bags (and snacks!) at their offices next week from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and head out to tidy up our waterways. Afterwards, submit a report or email them with the number of volunteers, hours worked, trash bags filled, and location, and they'll work with our crews to collect the bags for disposal. 

There's a lot going on in the City Different!
