A meeting to solicit public input on a proposed crossing over the Arroyo de los Chamisos as part of a plan to extend Richards Avenue between Siringo and Rodeo roads has been rescheduled to Feb. 11.

The city postponed the meeting, which had been scheduled for Jan. 16, after a heavy snowfall blanketed Santa Fe and made streets difficult to navigate.

The rescheduled meeting will be from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Santa Fe Higher Education Center, 1950 Siringo Road.

"This public engagement meeting is to collect input on the preferred alternatives to be studied further in Phase B of the Arroyo de los Chamiso Crossing Study," the city said in a news release. "Three options are under consideration, plus a ‘no-build’ option."

Living in Rancho Viejo, I support a Richards Ave extension to expedite access to Cerillos and to reduce congestion via other routes. Helpful if the 4 options info was available in advance to study and allow for more thoughtful discussion.

The meeting address shows up on Google maps as a warehouse and truck lot across the street from the Higher Education center. Why is the meeting being held more than a mile from the place where Richards would cross the Arroyo Chamiso? There are meeting rooms at the Chavez Center within a couple hundred yards of the proposed crossing location. Public meeting notification signs that I saw for the earlier (canceled) meeting never used the term "Richards Extension" nor to my recollection even mentioned Richards Ave. so it was entirely unclear what kind of "crossing" the signs were talking about. Once again public notification signs are sadly lacking in relevant detail.

Welcome to the discussion.
