    Keep Southside Open Space, OPEN SPACE

    Keep Southside Open Space OPEN SPACE! The city is hosting another Early Neighborhood Notification Meeting regarding the proposed development of a promised Open Space TOMORROW Oct 14 at 5:30 pm over zoom.  Meeting information: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82748618627?pwd=QmlyeDRwNC9zMzg4SmY3SkRXQ2NsQT09 Meeting ID: 827 4861 8627 Passcode: 865084 We are getting development packed in our neighborhoods yet have very few amenities to live a high quality of life. Now the very little open space available to our neighborhoods is under threat under the guise that this is where more development needs to happen. Last meeting about 100 residents showed up & spoke out about the lack of consultation & the very real issues with packing more off of South Meadows. Thank you Santa Fe Reporter for writing and interviewing residents! READ HERE:  https://www.sfreporter.com/news/2021/10/13/land-in-limbo/

    Ground Breaking on the Southside Teen Center Site!

    September 14, 2021 Southside Teen Center Ground Breaking Ceremony Zona Del Sol, Santa Fe, New Mexico On Tuesday, September 14, Earth Care youth leaders took part in the groundbreaking for the Southside Teen Center. Thank you Seneca from YUCCA & Alicia from the Boys & Girls Club for your leadership on this important community asset. We're excited to continue putting youth voices at the front of this development & excited for the possibilities for the solar, LEED certifications and more holistic construction! We're excited that we will finally have a space to come together as young people, and to develop awesome programs and opportunities with youth voices guiding the process every step of the way. We want to take this momentum and opportunity to ask the City and the state of New Mexico to invest even more into the development of this whole site as an intergenerational hub -- for learning, growth, and community-building. A center for civic and cultural life here on the Southside. Not the only one -- we need a lot more public investment down here. But this Zona Del Sol site, with the Teen Center - as a center point, is a critical investment. For us this is part of a larger campaign we call -  Youth at the Center -- a campaign to place young people and our voices, our needs, and our leadership at the center of development initiatives here in Santa Fe. In 2019, we led the community engagement work for the design. We spoke to 100s of youth in our Southside neighborhoods who contributed their ideas and visions -- to the design of the teen center - but also to a vision of how our community’s investment can serve our community for years to come. You can check out our Teen Center report from 2019, HERE. Thank you City of Santa Fe, City Staff, our Councilors Roman Tiger Abeyta & Chris Rivera, and our State leadership Linda Serrato, Sen. Rodriguez and all those supporting the development of the Southside Teen Center! Check out the video recording from the groundbreaking on Tuesday! WATCH HERE
