City worried about Santa Fe Indian School plans
City officials are worried commercial development might be coming to the Santa Fe Indian School campus.

"They're doing something. They're definitely doing something," Santa Fe Mayor David Coss told The Santa Fe New Mexican.

The school is part of Bureau of Indian Education system but is run by the 19 Pueblo in the state. The campus is held in trust for the tribes.

The tribes demolished over a dozen buildings this fall and documents obtained by The Santa Fe Reporter suggest some sort of retail and hotel development is being considered. But the All Indian Pueblo Council hasn't divulged its plans.

A visit to the campus in August showed a sign from Flintco, an Indian-owned construction company, that touted a health/wellness center and other education-related facilities. The school is next to an Indian Health Service hospital.
