Do you live in an area of the county covered by a Community Plan? Santa Fe County is looking for residents to serve on Community Plan Committees. These committees will amend respective existing community plans, recommend base zoning, and assist in developing an overlay community district. The plans, zoning, and overlay districts will become part of the final Sustainable Land Development Code.
For more information, this link will take you to the relevant county web page.
The County Commission passed the Sustainable Land Development Code (SLDC) in December, 2013. However because the Zoning Map and Fee Schedule have not yet been approved, the code is not yet in effect.
At its special meeting October 14, the BCC voted unanimously to postpone the target date for completing the approval process from end-of-year 2014 to an unspecified future date. Completing the 13 community plans is a critical part of making the SLDC the governing document for land development within the county.
Please check our SLDC page within the Advocacy tab for details.
