Will the CHART Team decide the fate of Soldier's Monument/Obelisk?
No. Team members do not take a stand on any issue. The CHART team is charged with facilitating a public engagement process designed to LISTEN to the views of residents of the City and County of Santa Fe and gather a body of information, input and data. This information will include opinions about the disposition of Soldier's Monument as well as a wide range of additional issues important to residents. These will inform recommendations to the City of Santa Fe Governing Body at the end of the project
and the Governing Body will decide whether to act upon CHART recommendations.
What is the Community Solutions Table?
The members of the Community Solutions Table consisted of individuals who consistently participated in the project and were selected after the majority of the public events had occurred. Membership on the Community Solutions Table was intentionally diverse in
terms of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. It included a balance of perspectives
and opinions on the City’s culture, histories, and stories, as well as a balance of
perspectives on the obelisk and other monuments and statues. As a group, Table
members reviewed a large body of data collected over the course of public
engagement activities (surveys, dialogue session notes, one-on-one interview
notes, results of art activations, responses to Cultural History Series events, and
more) and used this as a basis for proposing recommendations to be included,
along with others, in the final report. See the "panelist agreement" form
