The county-owned property opened to the public for the first time on Nov. 23.

This weekend, the public got its first up-close glimpse at a high-dollar property purchased with taxpayer money in Santa Fe County.

The county purchased the ranch—formerly known as the Ranch at Santa Fe Canyon and now called La Bajada Ranch—for $7 million in 2009, ending a contentious battle over what landowners should be allowed to build there. But county commissioners haven't decided what to do with the land yet.

A map provided on the Nov. 23 tour identifies 265 acres as a possible conservation area that's unsuitable for development; 60 acres as the best location for development; and 145 acres suitable for development with restrictions.  

What do you think the county should do with the property? Let us know in the comments or write a letter to the editor to editor@sfreporter.com.

In the meantime, if you missed the tour, check photos of the beautiful property, located in La Cienega:

Mark Hogan, division director for projects and facilities for Santa Fe County, estimated 60 to 80 showed up for the opening of the ranch.
