SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales wants his city to have gender-neutral bathrooms and to launch a new push to attract film productions.

Gonzales made the proposals in his first State of the City address Tuesday. The address was titled “One Santa Fe, One City, One Family.”

The mayor said he’ll introduce a resolution to require that every single-stall bathroom in Santa Fe be gender-neutral. He didn’t spell out details in his address but said it’s a response to what he’s hearing from the transgendered community.

According to Gonzales, Santa Fe needs to do everything it can to guarantee safe spaces for all residents.

Gonzales said he’s asking the City Council to provide the city with a full-time office and a film commission to work on bringing productions to Santa Fe.
