Counter-petition urges Santa Fe city council not to ban cars from downtown street

New Mexico News

SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – A proposal to ban cars from a busy Santa Fe street is getting some pushback. Wednesday night a petition was started by shop owners on San Francisco Street along the plaza to make the stretch, car-free.

The idea is to create an open, European-style outdoor space for businesses where people can gather, dine, and enjoy live music but a group of Santa Feans started a counter-petition advocating against the change. They argue closing the street will make the area feel more touristy and less appealing to locals.
