“The community planning process is not static and plans can be amended as new conditions arise, allowing for the community plan to evolve over time as the community changes”
The communities of La Cienega and La Cieneguilla are in the process of updating their 2001 Community Plan. Since the early 1990’s, residents of the community have been active in a variety planning efforts. In 2001, they completed the La Cienega/ La Cieneguilla Community Plan which was subsequently adopted by the BCC via Resolution 2001â€117. In 2007 and again in 2009, the community identified the need to revisit the 2001 Community Plan in light of changes in the area. On January 12, 2011 a new planning committee was formed as per the provisions of Ordinance 2002- 9: La Cienega and La Cieneguilla Traditional Community Planning Area and La Cieneguilla Traditional Community Zoning District. The Ordinance calls for a nine member planning committee representing La Cieneguilla, Upper La Cienega, and Lower La
The following are the current committee members:

Santa Fe County Planning staff has been working with the La Cienega/La Cieneguilla Planning Committee in structuring a process to update the adopted Community Plan. Planning committee meetings are held regularly at the La Cienega Community Center. All meetings of the planning committee are open to the public. When completed a draft of the community plan update will be presented to the Board of County Commissioners to consider for adoption by resolution as an amendment to the Sustainable Growth Management Plan. The intent and purpose of this plan update is to:
The plan area boundary is the same as the 2001 plan area boundary which follows the La Cienega Traditional Historic Community boundary. The boundary follows the upper edge of the La Bajada escarpment on the south, follows topographic features and County Road 56 C to the west and north, the southern airport boundary and NM State Highway 599 to the north and east, and Interstate 25 to the east and south.
