The students from Stonehill College traveled to Santa Fe, New Mexico from Boston, Massachusetts for a week of service and learning. Their time consisted of working alongside humble individuals that devote their time and resources to serve their community. On their first full day, the students were able to visit the Santa Domingo pueblo for Feast Day. In the following days, they served free hot lunch at the Guadalupe church, learned how to clean seeds and corn, and sort produce at a local farm, helped take care of farm animals in Santa Cruz at Four Bridges Traveling Permaculture Institute, and enjoyed the natural beauty of New Mexico. On their last day, the students mentored middle school students at Turquoise Trail. They also enjoyed the lessons and wisdom from many local elders.

The Bicycle Master Plan is a tool that will be utilized by its member entities (City of Santa Fe, Santa Fe County, and Tesuque Pueblo) along with many other non-governmental stakeholders in making decisions that shape the rules, regulations and the built environment that directly affect transportation and bicycling in the Santa Fe area. It should only take a couple minutes but we thank you for your time and insights.
Since the MPO is seeking a broad range of community input, we also hope you would consider circulating this survey among any other organization and business, as well as staff, co-workers, family, or friends.
Thanks again for your input!
Meanwhile, hope the holidays proved nourishing and sending best wishes for a wonderful 2019.
We have a heap of exciting things brewing and look forward to sharing an amazing year! Stay tuned...
