Press release just in: Santa Fe Mayor David Coss is putting together a roundtable of citizens to "discuss and make recommendations on how the city's historic Plaza can best be protected and preserved while also serving as a community gathering place."
The Plaza board will have nine members collectively representing the following interests: Major commercial event organizers; other special event organizers; the historic preservation community; ohe 400th anniversary event planners; downtown merchants; and the public at large.
I can think of only one individual to represent the dance-dance-rave-firedance-artist-hippy-hip-hop-indie-rock-twenty-and-early -thirty-something segment of the Santa Fe community, of which I'll go ahead and include myself.
Funk the plaza. Yeah, that's who I'd want representing me as the plaza roundtable discusses:
1. Appropriate use of the Plaza for major commercial events and special events;
2. Alternative sites for major commercial events and special events; and
3. Restrictions on the use of the Plaza for major commercial events and special events.
That's all for 2011, by the way. Here's the full text of the resolution
