  • Community Plans
    • The Community Planning process utilizes community knowledge and leadership as a mechanism to design land use plans specific to an unincorporated community area. After approval by the Board of County Commissioners (BCC), community plans constitute an amendment to the SGMP for the specified geographic area. The BCC has adopted Community, District and Corridor Plans and ordinances for communities throughout Santa Fe County.  These plans and ordinances have been developed in accordance with the Sustainable Land Development Code (SLDC) in coordination with planning committees and community members to create plans that serve as a guide for future development, land use, community facilities, projects and programs for the specific community.  Here’s a list of existing community plans:  San Marcos; La Bajada; Tesuque; Galisteo; Los Cerrillos; Madrid: San Pedro; La Cienega and La Cieneguilla; El  Valle de Arroyo Seco; U.S. 285 South Highway Corridor; Tres Arroyos del Poniente; Village of Agua Fria; Pojoaque Valle; and Chimayo.  Click community plans to access the individual plans.
