PHSZD Meeting Information

Online Meetings and Contact with the Commission

  1. See below and on the FORMS page for Online Public Meeting instructions. The public is always welcome. Please use the ZOOM link listed on the home page. The link is updated before each meeting. Meetings are held on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month.

  2. The Commission assists applicants with projects by telephone or email. Questions can be left via the CONTACT page. You may also call 505-407-4381 if you prefer that method. If you call, please leave a detailed message. Commissioners will return calls or issue instructions by email from contact@paradisehillsspecialzoning.org.

  3. Calling or emailing the Commission will not expedite an incomplete application or an application without paid fee.

  4. All PHSZD Public Meetings will be online via Zoom with audio, video, and phone capabilities for those with and without access to the Internet. The Commission has placed all zoning permit instructions, forms, meeting schedules, and proposed projects on the website. This page contains public comments, instructions for public engagement, and instructions to request participation in future meetings.

  5. The PHSZD Commission will reassess procedures when new guidance is available to public state commissions operating under the New Mexico Public Meetings Act and Sunshine Laws. Our goal is to serve our community responsibly.

  6. Participation in an online meeting is optional to obtain a PHSZD Ordinance conforming zoning permit. You must submit a complete application with supporting documents and all permit fees. Conforming reviews are for zoning permit requests that comply with the PHSZD Comprehensive Ordinance regulations. The project MUST conform to zoning actions permitted within the zone classification. VARIANCES, CONDITIONAL USES, OR SPECIAL AND PLANNED DEVELOPMENTS REQUIRE FURTHER STEPS SUCH AS COMMUNITY NOTIFICATION OR ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING. The Commission will review your application and issue a permit without further steps if the zoning actions conform and are defined as permitted. The current PHSZD Ordinance is available on the FORMS page.
