Council approved an ordinance, requested by the Town of Silver City, for a zone change for five tracts of land along Pinos Altos Road amounting to 11.39 acres and one tract of .1148 acres at 2005 Trapper Road, together totaling some 11.51 acres. The ordinance changes the zoning from Residential B-2 to Highway Commercial. Town Manager Alex Brown told the Beat the lots along Pinos Altos Road are between Pine and 32nd streets.
Priscilla Shoup, Planning and Zoning planner, representing the Silver City Community Development Department, said all property owners of the affected tracts of land were contacted. Other town departments, and other property owners within 300 feet of the tracts affected, had no comments.
Secretary-designate of the New Mexico Department of Health Dr. Tracie Collins and Secretary of the New Mexico Human Services Department Dr. David Scrase gave the COVID-19 health update on January 25, 2021.
Collins said of the 221,375 vaccine doses received, 203,830 have been administered. That is over 92%, and in the past 7 days providers have doubled the pace of administration from January 11, 2021.
"New Mexico has the third highest vaccine administration rate among all of the states in the United States," Collins said. "New Mexicans have a lot to be proud of."
Collins reminds New Mexicans to register at the vaccine registration website. "Half a million New Mexicans are registered," she said. "We encourage all New Mexicans to register and we will reach out when a vaccine appointment is available."
