We’re doing big things these days—and important small things too! Wednesday night three big projects were approved: Bicentennial Pool, the Airport and the Train Depot. We also pushed forward on a series of big public works projects: A new fire station, a new central library, and significant upgrades to streets, roads, trails, and parks. And a new Public Service Building might be in the works.
On top of those big wins, we’re breaking ground today at the MRC for a major solar project that will add 2.75 megawatts of renewable to our energy portfolio—a project that will save more than $750,000 in utility costs every year. This project brings us that much closer to our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2040.
And then a small project that sends a big message: In the last six weeks, we’ve collected 750 abandoned shopping carts and returned them to retailers! Another quality of life project for a cleaner Santa Fe.
Getting things done, big and small, to deliver on the promise of Santa Fe’s future. That’s what we do, together.
