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.
