SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Santa Fe County commissioners have approved settlements ending rights-of-way disputes with four northern New Mexico pueblos.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the settlements approved Tuesday clarify rights of way for 34 miles of roads through Nambe, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso and Tesuque pueblos through the year 2216.
Under agreements with Pojoaque and Tesuque, the county is granted rights of way for roads it maintains within the pueblo boundaries. The rights of way for roadways within Nambe and San Ildefonso pueblos go to the U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs.
All roads will remain open to the public, but San Ildefonso and Nambe have the right to close roads temporarily for cultural events.
