Contact(s): Julie Anne Overton

SANTA FE, NM – March 17, 2020 – The Jemez District Office will be closed this week to accommodate the move into temporary quarters while the construction of new facilities at 051 Woodsy Lane is underway.

During construction, the Jemez Office will share space at the Administrative Office of the Valles Caldera National Preserve (VCNP), located at 90 Villa Louis Martin about a half-mile south of the current ranger station.

The Jemez District will be available by phone at 575-829-3535 next Monday, March 23. The Santa Fe National Forest is implementing virtual services to protect the health and safety of employees and members of the public during the COVID-19 outbreak in accordance with guidance from federal and state authorities.

Developed in the 1960s, the current office compound is dysfunctional and obsolete. The approved plans for the property, which is owned by the Forest Service, include demolition of the old infrastructure and construction of a new two-story office building, a building to house the district’s fire program and a warehouse for storage. The project is expected to take 18 to 24 months to complete.
