At their regular meeting on April 18, San Juan County Commissioners approved amendments to the design and construction of a walking path for Kirtland Schools. NMDOT awarded a grant for the walking path in 2016, which was originally planned as a four-mile project. After the design phase, the path was reduced to 1.5 miles because of funding.

Commissioners also heard the annual update from the San Juan County Historical Society, outgoing president Zang Wood. Wood thanked commissioners for their continued support and also introduced the new president of the organization, Andrea Greenacre.

Tonya Stinson, Executive Director of the Farmington Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, introduced Jim Glover, Once A Day Marketing, LLC who presented an outdoor industry initiative they have been working on for the FCVB, to investigate the feasibility of building a sustainable outdoor recreation/adventure industry in Farmington and San Juan County. Glover told commissioners that out of the top ten outdoor recreation sectors, San Juan County has them all ... bicycling, camping, fishing, hunting, motorcyle riding, off-roading, snow sports, trails, water sports and wildlife viewing, and that our county could capitalize on those opportunities and work to bring more industries to the county. “Outdoor recreation is big business,” Glover told commissioners.

The next regular meeting of the San Juan County Commission is scheduled for May 2, beginning at 4 pm, in the Commission Room of the San Juan County Administration Building, 100 S. Oliver, Aztec.
