Solarize Program Shines

TODAY, the City received a "2022 Mayors' Climate Protection Award" at the U.S. Conference of Mayors' annual meeting for the "Solarize Santa Fe" pilot program. The program helps homeowners of all income levels overcome the financial barriers of solar installation, and save money on their energy bills, through solar energy bulk-purchasing. Forty Santa Fe homeowners participated in the pilot, and all the solar panel installations were completed this spring.

The solar power generated from these new installations will eliminate about 220 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year – the equivalent to driving 547,000 less miles per year or planting 3,600 trees per year. While the road to a carbon-neutral future isn't an easy one, it's programs like these that will take us across the finish line. Stay tuned for news about the expansion of Solarize Santa Fe in 2022, and kudos to the pilot project team for this recent recognition!

Waterwise Business Leaders

The Water Conservation Office's "Certified Waterwise Business" program has helped Santa Fe establishments save over 450,000 gallons of water since it began – that's win-win for water AND the businesses' bottom lines! The program has handed out 91 certifications so far, and there's never been a better time to enroll your business and reap the benefits. (Or, show your support by patronizing the many Certified Waterwise locations around the city.)


Trail Closures Extended through June 7

On Tuesday, the Governing Body voted to extend the trail closures that went into effect on Saturday, May 28, through June 7, 2022 due to the persistence of the extreme fire conditions and potential fire danger around Santa Fe. We can all do our part to keep the city and our community safe by abiding by the closures and taking advantage of the many trails, parks and open spaces that remain open.

Tennis Court Makeovers Moving Forward

The Herb Martinez Park tennis courts were closed this week in preparation for a complete renovation over the summer. The project, which also includes Atalaya and Larragoite Parks, will result in brand- new courts that are guaranteed to last 20 years. The Parks and Open Space Division has planned a groundbreaking next week to celebrate the launch of these much-anticipated overhauls.
