Santa Fe's Centers & Corridors Map

This map highlights areas of the city anticipated to absorb most of the city’s growth and physical change in the future and includes approved master-planned areas, existing major roadways with a mix of stores, offices and housing as well as centers of business and retail activity.  These areas can be viewed as a kind of central nervous system for the city. 

Conversely, the city’s long and storied history and sensitivity to its unique natural setting is reflected on the map in various “areas to conserve” throughout the city where physical growth and change should be modest, or minimal, and in keeping with surrounding neighborhoods.  Santa Fe’s historic downtown and the adjoining historic residential areas hold a special place in the Santa Fe Community and are key areas to conserve.


Committees staffed by the Long-Range Planning Division include:

  • Capital Improvements Advisory Committee (CIAC) -  This nine-member citizen advisory committee oversees and makes recommendations on the city's Impact Fees program.
  • Long-Range Planning Committee (LRPC) - This five-member citizen advisory committee provides review and feedback on Long-Range Planning activities such as the City Plan and other division activities.
