City of Santa Fe

Weekly Wrap

Highlights from the Week of June 20, 2022

Pride Flag Flies at City Hall

ON MONDAY, the City celebrated LGBTQ+ Pride Month with a gathering of community members, elected officials, and staff at City Hall. City Manager John Blair, and Councilors Carol Romero-Wirth, Signe Lindell, Renee Villarreal, and Michael Garcia (pictured) joined together in a reading of Mayor Webber's Proclamation of June as "City of Santa Fe Pride Month," and then raised the inclusive Pride flag on the City Hall flagpole. Thank you to all the attendees who joined us to show your support.

The celebrations will continue on Saturday with the Pride Parade organized by the Human Rights Alliance. Our Santa Fe Public Library, Police Department, Fire Department, Community Engagement Department and Environmental Services Division will all be in attendance!

New Bioscience Certification

Santa Fe now has a certified "Community Ready" bioscience site thanks to the efforts of the Office of Economic Development. The award comes from the New Mexico Bioscience Authority, which introduced the Community Readiness program "...[to help] out-of-state and in-state companies easily identify locations in terms of infrastructure and utilities, regulatory framework, and workforce and training to support bioscience ventures." Kudos, ED team.

La Farge Garden Growth

Before and After: The staff at La Farge Library has been working with Santa Fe Community College to make some much-needed improvements to the Children's Garden. Thanks to their efforts, and the support of additional community partners – Reunity Resources, and the Friends of the Library – the garden is full of fresh soil and new plants, making it an inviting space for the whole community.

Ragle Playground Revived

Last week, we held a "First Slide" celebration for the new equipment at Ragle Park, which has three exciting features for children of all ages! Kids took turns breaking in the new slide to the cheers of all attendees, and there were even some adults who joined in too. A permanent panel replacing the old, unsafe slide was installed this week, and the area is ready for all to enjoy for years to come.

We have a fun lineup of FREE events and activities planned for the upcoming holiday weekend, including another movie screening at SWAN Park on Friday, July 1, a pool party at Bicentennial Pool on July 2, and a community fireworks display on Monday, July 4. Click here to download a copy of the flyer  so you can mark your calendar and make a plan for how to spend your 4th of July weekend.
