As Santa Fe County officials continue to consider options for the future of the vacant First District courthouse building on Catron Street, lack of adequate parking remains the biggest predicament at the site.

About two dozen community people — including several members of the First Presbyterian Church next door — listened to the county’s proposals for the downtown building during a public meeting Wednesday. Mark Hogan, who is managing the project, presented a study that recommends razing the court and then constructing a new office building with ample parking.

    And have we factored in the archaeological delays and costs when they find more burials?

    The property should be used for the greater benefit of the entire downtown area. Long term the greatest need I should think is parking. In season downtown parking keeps folks away. They should raise the entire building and replace it with a multi level parking facility. Maybe some street level shop area abound the permitter. Long term the benefits would be enormous if it was well done.
