Sustainable Land Development Code
Sustainable Land Development Code
Santa Fe Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved an Ordinance to adopt the Sustainable Land Development Code (SLDC) at the December 10, 2013 Board meeting. The Sustainable Land Development Code will not become effective until after the County Zoning Map is adopted. The County Zoning Map adoption process will include legal notice and a public process which is anticipated to begin in early 2014.
The SLDC provides a legal framework for implementing land development and growth management policies of the Sustainable Growth Management Plan adopted in 2010. The SLDC will replace the existing County Land Development Code after the zoning map is adopted.
Santa Fe County released a draft of the Sustainable Land Development Code for public review on September 10, 2012 and concluded a public comment period on October 26, 2012. During this time, hundreds of comments regarding the draft Sustainable Land Development Code have been submitted. Santa Fe County released the Adoption draft of the Sustainable Land Development Code on October 1, 2013.
