Public Involvement

Phase A Public Involvement

During Phase A, alternatives were developed with a suite of ten typical sections that screened two alternatives that included either a 4-ft bike lane or a 5-ft bike lane. Public and business owner meetings were held in July of 2021. During the meetings, study team members provided an overview of existing conditions and introduced preliminary alternatives under consideration.  Approximately 55 attendees were present at both the public and business owner meetings, and the recorded public meeting event hosted on July 21, 2022, was viewed by 26 unique viewers.  A Metro Quest Survey, an interactive online survey, was also offered to get additional feedback from the community.  

All comments received through the Metro Quest survey, during the meeting, phone calls, and emails were shared with the City of Santa Fe and Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization staff.  A summary was developed from responses prepared.

Design Considerations include:

  • Limited Highway Right-of-Way (80-ft)
  • Utility Conflicts with Sidewalks
  • Multiple Buildings Located at Edge of Right-of-way
  • Multiple Historically Sensitive Properties

Phase B Public Involvement

As part of Phase B, alternatives were narrowed to a couple of typical section options for the corridor.  A virtual public meeting was hosted in April 2022 to present the alternatives to be evaluated in more  detail and to gather public feedback to further incorporate refinements of the recommended alternatives.  Approximately 27 people attended the live virtual public meeting and a number of public comments were received during the comment period which closed on May 26th.

All comments received will be shared with the study team, City of Santa Fe, and Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization staff and a public involvement summary will be prepared.  We do appreciate your participation!
