In an effort to make the submission of Architectural Plans and Variances requests easier, the ECIA Architecture Committee has worked to develop forms for these submissions and make them available on this site. The forms may be found under the menu Resident Resources>>Forms & Applications. Or at these links:
A private landowner has purchased an easement from the State Land Trust and has received a permit from Santa Fe County to construct an extension of Avenida Eldorado to connect to a ranch in the Galisteo Basin. The road will extend West from the State Trust Land boundary for several hundred yards, and then turn South for about a mile. The private property that the road will service is about 1,000 acres of undeveloped land. Under existing Santa Fe County zoning, this property could only be subdivided into individual lots of 160 acres. The current owner intends to sell the property either as a complete ranch or to a developer. The ECIA was not notified by the property owner, state land trust officials or county officials prior to the beginning of construction.
The ECIA Architecture Committee has an immediate opening for one new member. Ideal applicants should have some knowledge or experience in planning and/or zoning as well as at least a basic understanding of building concepts and architectural design. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume to the ECIA to the attention of the ECIA Architecture Committee, c/o Mark Young Staff Liaison.
