Before the first draft of the new Master Plan is completed, we want to get input from residents of Tierra Contenta, other parts of Santa Fe, and nearby sections of Santa Fe County. We want to know about your hopes and concerns for new developments like this. This survey closed on Jan. 30, 2020. A report will be published in mid-February.
Plans are being prepared to build 1,150 quality, mixed-income homes and apartments in the last undeveloped part of Tierra Contenta. In addition, land will be reserved for a new school, community facilities, neighborhood parks, and trails.
The nonprofit Tierra Contenta Corporation (TCC) owns 227 acres of undeveloped land located southeast of Capital High School, of which approximately 25 percent will be preserved as open space. TCC is in the process of updating its plan to reflect the impact of major changes in the surrounding area—such as new schools, roads, stores, and parks. Also, the Design Standards for all new construction are being reviewed. More than one-third of the land will be preserved as open space.
