New CONNECT–211 Partnership

United Way of North Central New Mexico, the City of Santa Fe, and Santa Fe County, are partnering to give Santa Feans greater access to local resources by linking United Way’s 211 information and referral Helpline to the CONNECT network. The 211 Helpline – CONNECT partnership will allow CONNECT navigators to provide referrals for services to community members throughout Santa Fe County, as well as give 211 callers access to a CONNECT navigator for more intensive assistance with services.

To donate to the CONNECT network, text “CONNECT” to 26989.

To request help, self-refer to the CONNECT portal here, or call 211.

Vote for Santa Fe

You have another opportunity to show your love for our amazing city by voting in the USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice polls for 2023!

We're in the running for "Best Public Square," and three of our local art institutes have been nominated for "Best Art Museum."

On Air with Sustainability Radio

On this month's "Climate Matters" radio show, Sustainability Officer Neal Denton spoke with guests from non-profit 350 Santa Fe about key bills to watch in the legislative session. Watch the recording to learn about the law that would require a 50% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, the Green Amendment, and what's going on with hydrogen. And, don't forget to visit our sustainability dashboard for tips on what you can do to make a difference!

New Certified Public Manager

Our teammate Romella S. Glorioso-Moss has graduated from her CPM course! The Certified Public Manager Program is a nationally accredited management development program, designed to prepare managers for careers in government and public appointments. Romella completed 18 hours of assessments as well as a capstone project in order to receive her certification. Congratulations and great work, Romella!

No Hot Coals & Ash in Trash

Cozy fires are a treat in the wintertime, but practicing fire safety is critical no matter the season. You should never put hot coals and ashes in your trash cart – it is just as dangerous as leaving a campfire before it's fully extinguished! Hot coals can melt through your cart and set flammable material inside on fire. Make sure ashes are dead-out before disposing, and only dispose in your green trash cart, never in the recycling cart.

Our Year in Review 2022

We've put together a list of 2022 accomplishments for the City of Santa Fe! Although the projects and wins differ for each department, division, and team, one thing is true for them all: Team Santa Fe is always hard at work for our community. Check out the list online or pick up a take-home flyer at a Library or Recreation Center starting next week!

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