From Our Mayor

Overall, 2022 was a year of purpose and progress for the City of Santa Fe. We’ll always have more work to do; making life better for all of the people of our community is both unending and endlessly rewarding. We can all look back at last year and see how we made a difference. We’re on the right path, with the right people and the right agenda, and we can see both how far we’ve come and what more we need to focus on.

I’m a “lists” guy. It’s how I reflect on how far we’ve come. With that, I offer you two lists, each of 10 accomplishments in 2022. The first is a “Top 10 List”: Ten significant and noteworthy achievements that deserve to be recognized. The second is a list of “Ten Really Important Accomplishments That You Probably Never Heard Of.” This list consists of achievements that are of major significance—but that would likely go unreported. They just help us do our work better, smarter, more effectively, and more efficiently. I look forward to 2023 and another year of progress and achievement for the city we all love.

Mayor Alan Webber

  8. Completed the year-long CHART process, with 52 recommendations pending for Governing Body consideration and a path forward to resolve long-standing concerns over diversity, equity, inclusivity, and accessibility.
