The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the city on Monday released the list that includes plaques, events, monuments and murals.

City officials say residents can contribute to the inventory until the end of next month when the officials will then compile a final report.

Mayor Javier Gonzales proposed an examination of the city's historical and cultural markers as discussions continue across the country over Confederate monuments.

An event listed on the inventory is the Entrada, the annual re-enactment during the Fiesta de Santa Fe that depicts the Spanish conquistadors' 1692 reoccupation of the city. The event has elicited staunch opposition.
