Draft Sustainable Land Development Code (SLDC) Chapters Now Available

The first four chapters of the Sustainable Land Development Code (SLDC) were released to the Santa Fe, NM Board of County Commissioners (BCC) and the public at the December 13, 2011 BCC Meeting. The SLDC will implement the goals, policies, and strategies of the adopted Sustainable Growth Management Plan (SGMP), which was approved in November 2010.

Copies and CDs are available at County Administrative Offices in the Planning Division at 102 Grant Ave. and are available at the County Satellite Offices (Pojoaque, Eldorado, Edgewood). Santa Fe County will release the remaining SLDC Chapters as they are drafted and would like to encourage all residents to review the draft chapters and provide input. The final draft code will incorporate public input and be presented to the BCC once completed for direction on an approval process.

The draft SLDC Chapters 1-4 and a link for residents to provide public comment are available at www.santafecounty.org under Hot Topics or the direct link is www.santafecounty.org/growth_management/sldc.

The 21st century will overturn many of our previously-held assumptions about civilization. The challenges and opportunities land development stakeholders now face – to fulfill the needs of society and achieve a favorable return on investment without harming the environment – have vast implications on the sustainability of our communities around the world.



SLDI - Sustainable Land Development Initiative is a stakeholder social media association now positioned to help transform the industry that creates the very infrastructure of our civilization. SLDI is dedicated to delivering sustainable land development technology and knowledge resources to promote and enable fully integrated sustainable land development worldwide.

How do we develop a sustainable civilization?
By delivering the "holy grail of sustainable decision making" - a universal geometrical algorithm that balances the needs of people, planet and profit - The SLDI Code™
The World’s First Sustainable Development Decision Model is symbolized as a geometrical algorithm that balances and integrates the triple-bottom line needs of people, planet and profit into a holistic, fractal model that becomes increasingly detailed, guiding effective decisions throughout the community planning, financing, design, regulating, construction and maintenance processes while always enabling project context to drive specific decisions.
