City Different, May 2013

The newest addition to The New Mexican’s roster of special supplements, The City Different focuses on the future of business and innovation in Santa Fe, the problems unique to the City Different and the individuals and organizations working to make the region’s creative economy and heritage tourism culturally and commercially sustainable. The inaugural edition includes stories about community leaders’ visions for the city, the challenges of retaining and engaging 20-somethings, the impact of the aging population on housing, the case for alternative transportation and the impact of online digital media and social networks on arts organizations and other local businesses. Profiles of the enterprising Ortega family (in business locally for more than 100 years), Judith Espinar, co-founder and creative director of the International Folk Art Market (now celebrating it’s 10th anniversary in Santa Fe) and Cyndi Conn, executive director of Creative Santa Fe (a newer nonprofit dedicated to strengthening the city’s creative economy and enhancing the quality of life for both residents and visitors) are also included. A look at child- and family-friendly educational policies, the Santa Fe Children’s Project, a model United Way program, the new shared biology lab embedded in the Santa Fe Business incubator and a look at the region’s broadband needs round out the issue.
