Students Design Vision for Santa Fe Airport Road Corridor
August 23, 2012 - Carolyn Gonzales
The City of Santa Fe sought assistance with an assessment of the Airport Road corridor. They found the right people for the job in the UNM School of Architecture and Planning's Community and Regional Planning program. It is Santa Fe's emerging immigrant district that features affordable housing and 70s and 80s era strip malls. In the last five to seven years Mexican immigrant businesses have moved in, said Moises Gonzales, assistant professor, adding that the area is seeing a rise in the student numbers at area schools.
