Gazette Premium Content Santa Fe mayor revises plaza traffic-ban proposal

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales is revising his proposal to close the northern New Mexico's historic downtown plaza to vehicular traffic. That's as the proposal draws a cool response from a City Council committee.

Gonzales has said he wanted traffic barred to make the plaza friendlier to pedestrians, particular families with children.

He's now proposing that traffic be barred from streets adjacent from the plaza only during summer months, from Memorial Day to early September.

The council's public works committee discussed the proposal and heard testimony on it Monday but ended up making no recommendation.

Most residents who spoke during the committee meeting opposed the idea, and several members said the proposal isn't ready for consideration.

That leaves some doubt about whether and when the full council will consider it.
