Credits Gov. Lujan Grisham’s Support for Advancing the Plan
(Santa Fe, NM) – Lieutenant Governor Howie Morales today announced that a proposed transfer of historic Fort Bayard property to the village of Santa Clara by the State of New Mexico is making strong progress during discussions he facilitated in Santa Fe. Since taking office in January, Morales has initiated a series of high-level meetings between State officials of the administration of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, which controls the Fort Bayard site, and key legislators and representatives of Grant County communities. Reversing years which saw no discernible State interest in cooperating on the annexation and redevelopment plan, Morales credited promising signs of a breakthrough to the support of the new Governor and her cabinet team.
