Commission Selects Foch Street Redesign

On Wednesday, the City Commission of Truth or Consequences voted unanimously to select “Option B” for the redesign of Foch Street between Main and Broadway.

Option B retains the two-way street and improves parking and pedestrian amenities significantly.

The design was one of three options provided by MRWM, the architectural firm charged with redesigning the street in association with a grant received by MainStreet Truth or Consequences. The design process was informed by two well-attended public meetings and scores of emails and calls from the community. The final decision fell to the city commissioners following a presentation of the public process by City Manager Morris Madrid.

MRWM can now proceed with generating the engineering and technical documentation required to make the project “shovel-ready”. The city and MainStreet will begin seeking the funding to implement the new design.
