A group of residents from the Cielo Lumbre, Coyote Ridge, and Calle Nopal areas recently had preliminary discussions with the County about creating a community plan with a moratorium for City zoning and density changes. This is only a beginning, and nothing is assured, but it is an indication we are being heard.
It is vital that we have a strong presence at this Thursday's ELUA meeting, to be held at 102 Grant Street at 6 PM. We are sorry for the long meeting at the ELUC, but our turnout this Thursday is critical to show our determination.
Continue to contact the people involved on this: ELUA here, County and City here. Also contact our County representative Commissioner Vigil: firstname.lastname@example.org , 995-2755.
We had a great series of op-eds and letters to the editor at the Santa Fe New Mexican, keep them coming: here is a direct link to submit a letter.
If the ELUA votes to adopt the existing ordinance, we sill have options and remedies available. We have made progress, however slight, this is a long and difficult road, and the other side had a formidable head start, but as they say, "it's not over until it's over".
Tell your neighbors. See you Thursday. Stay tuned!
