Santa Fe County Planning encourages community organizations to apply to become a Community Organization (CO) or Registered Organization (RO) to receive notifications on development projects within a specific geographic area or area of interest.

Santa Fe County has established a community participation process to provide improved public participation and to provide an organized and fair process whereby public input may be received on applications for development and community development issues. COs and ROs were created to maximize public input on important decisions that affect the County, a community or neighborhood. COs and ROs will receive notifications and be included in pre-application neighborhood meetings for development proposals within the specified area of interest. 

COs are appointed by the Board of County Commissioners for a specific geographic area to represent the community. COs have the right to meet with the Administrator concerning matters of interest and to participate in town hall meetings, leadership retreats and trainings.


Applications for COs and ROs include a pre-application meeting at the Santa Fe County Planning office. Please contact Senior Planner, Lucy Foma lfoma@santafecountynm.govor 505-995-2735 for more details.
