SANTA FE, N.M. — A mass migration of Santa Fe County employees starts this week when workers from a couple of agencies – the Growth Management/Land Use and Assessor’s Offices – move from the historic county administration building on Grant Avenue to a new complex two blocks away that is still under construction.

County officials want the public to know that anyone with business with the county – whether it’s to apply for a building permit, pay property taxes or visit the probate judge – should start getting in the habit of going to the new county complex.

“It’s kind of a one-stop shop for constituents,” Paul Olafson, one of the project managers, said last week.

That’s because most county offices constituents go to are moving to the new location at the site of the old county courthouse over the next few weeks.
