A developmental hurdle has been cleared for a project that will see the construction of a 45-unit affordable housing complex in midtown Santa Fe.
Members of the Santa Fe City Council have given their approval to amending the city ordinance governing traffic in the area of the proposed project at 1115 Calle La Resolana.
The two-story housing project, which has been in the talking and planning stage for more than a year, will belong to the Santa Fe Civic Housing Authority and will go up on a 2.5-acre site some 4 miles to the southwest of downtown Santa Fe.
Residential homes border the site to the east and south of the project, with commercial structures on the north and west side.
Although the project was earlier approved by the Santa Fe Planning Commission, it has sparked the opposition of nearby neighbors who have said the size of the complex is too dense for the site.
