The old St. Michael’s High School building is standing on its last legs as Rios Freight Lines continues to raze the area to make way for further expansion of the capitol complex.

April 14, 1994: Residential developments that are made up of at least 25 percent affordable housing should be given rush status in the application process for building permits, members of the Santa Fe City Council decided Wednesday.
