Public Safety Issues Necessitate New Location for Veterans’ Banner Program


City to Convene Meeting to Find Alternatives for Honoring Veterans
SANTA FE, June 7, 2022 – Today, the City of Santa Fe announces its intention to work with the entire veterans’ community to design a safe and sustainable way to celebrate the community’s veterans, without posing any risk to Santa Fe residents. The need for this new approach is a consequence of public safety issues that have recently emerged that prevent the Hometown Hero Banners from being posted on the light poles on Cerrillos Road. The City will convene a meeting of veterans’ organization leaders later this week to look at other locations for the banner program and to consider other options for honoring Santa Fe veterans.
