Southside greenway loop

Public Input and Visioning

The Southside Greenway Loop is a 2.24 mile proposed multi-use trail loop formed by the planned Acequia and River Trails. This trail has been included in regional transportation plans and is considered important to expanding the City of Santa Fe’s bikeways network, which is vital to addressing the City of Santa Fe’s sustainability goals by offering safe routes for alternative transportation modes. 

But is that all this trail is? 

Is that all it can be?

We need to hear from you!

Health related demographics were examined in the March 2021 Southside Greenway Loop Community Health Profile and showed that park and trail access is currently less than in other parts of the county. This document has elevated our perception of need in this community for both safer transportation routes, and also more access to recreational spaces.

The loop is identified on the map to the right as the “SSSA Trail proposed for construction”  in blue-green. This is how it is referred to in the Community Health Profile. 

 We have the route selected, but what are we overlooking? What else is needed? How urgent is this project actually? Please help us to understand your neighborhood needs so that you get the public investments that will benefit you. 


Now, we want to hear from YOU!

Right now, we are analyzing the results from our game

Recently, we met in the neighborhood to visit some of the locations along the trail to hear your feedback, concerns, and get your ideas. 

We are always interested in your feedback, so if you can’t play at this time feel free to send us your comments anyway using the “Get in Touch” button at the top of this page!

Game... Over

This game, hosted by the MPO, resulted in somebody winning a free bicycle! The winner found at least 10 of the signs around the community and answered the questions via a survey!

After mapping, projects can be prioritized for funding and implementation. The highest priority projects will be accessible for review with member governments so they can be included into the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). . Based on concentrations of high priority projects, high priority pedestrian improvement zones can be designated to complete improvements by geographic area.
