This week, the Santa Fe City Council will decide whether or not to spend hundreds of millions of dollars in state funding to renovate one of the newer mixed-income housing facilities in the city. The city helped purchase the old Santa Fe Suites late last year for a non-profit which now operates the facility for those experiencing and transitioning from homelessness, and for low-income residents. Now, the city is looking to make upgrades.
“The idea was always that this would be a mixed-income community. So, kind of [an] opportunity for everybody from the homeless up to workforce renters,” said Alexandra Ladd, Director of Santa Fe’s Office of Affordable Housing.
