It’s one of the most common questions on the Santa Fe plaza, and soon it will have a better answer.
“We went into the Palace of the Governors and there was no public restroom, and we’re like, ‘ok,'” a visitor said.
Finding bathrooms around the plaza has been a challenge for years, even prompting one business owner to propose an app to help people find businesses with bathrooms available.
Now, thanks to $550,000 from the legislature, the city plans to build a restroom near the Water Street garage.
The preliminary design includes 22 stalls and a family restroom. Construction is expected to start in the fall.
