County seeks comment on zoning project proposal


Doña Ana County staff will host a series of meetings regarding the adoption of the Unified Development Code, UDC, Plan 2040: The Comprehensive Plan, and to create a zoning map for the area known as the Camino Real Regional Utility Authority Extra-Territorial Zoning, CRRUA-ETZ. 

The CRRUA-ETZ was jointly established in 2009 by the county and the city of Sunland Park. Input received from public meetings in 2018 was incorporated into the current zoning map proposal, available at gis.donaanacounty.org/portal/home, according to a news release. A letter with pertinent information was mailed to affected property owners in mid-January.

The public is invited to attend meetings hosted by county staff to provide input regarding the proposed ordinance and zoning map changes for adoption, 4-7 p.m. on Feb. 6 and 7 at 4950 McNutt Road in Sunland Park.

Public input meetings will be followed by Planning and Zoning Commission public hearings Thursday, Feb. 22 and Thursday, Mar. 14 to consider further input and their recommendation. Approval by the Board of County Commissioners will be considered Tuesday, Apr. 9.
