A Photographic Tour of Polluting Industries on
Santa Fe’s Southside
*Taken on Tuesday, February 15, 2022 by Linda Marianiello and Franz Vote, Tierra Contenta residents
Follow the Route we took on this tour of some of the industry adjacent to our neighborhoods
AAM’s facility at 3810
Oliver Road within City of Santa Fe Limits.
Constellation Drive/Riverside Loop and Avenger Way.
From Riverside mobile home park looking toward AAM’s plant in the city
Riverside mobile home park from
El Camino Real Trail Head just north of Riverside mobile home park and adjoining an industrial
site. The photo below is of the sign at the entrance to the
industrial site and right by the Trailhead sign.
From Constellation Drive and looking west to the second AAM facility on Paseo de River on the opposite side of 599. AAM claims that they are
moving further away from the mobile home parks.
Moving across to the other side of the highway and
expanding operations to 24/7, 7 days per week does
not seem like a significant move.
Truck traffic on 599 going north
toward downtown Santa Fe. The amount of truck traffic
in the areas we photographed was overwhelming.
There was hardly a moment at which huge trucks
weren’t passing us in both directions.
Mobile home park
and new apartment complexes from the S. Meadows/599 interchange.
Kates Way just off
South Meadows, including a sign of a meeting
regarding another proposed development on the
opposite side of El Camino Real Academy and closer to
Pre-Leasing sign at the
entrance to the above-mentioned apartments, which we understand are intended to mainly house LANL employees. Are the people moving into these
apartments aware of the pollution issues to the west of them on the opposite side of 599?
More photos of
truck traffic, in this case at Naumburg Industrial Park.
Naumburg is just off Airport Road to the west of 599,
including Colony Drive and Paseo de River.
The entrance to Naumburg
Industrial Park at the intersection of Airport Road and
Colony Drive. Names of the businesses
located in the Park: Honstein Oil Company, Concrete Pumping, Roadrunner Redi-Mix, CBC, etc.
