ARCHAEOLOGICAL REVIEW COMMITTEE
The City of Santa Fe Archaeological Review Committee (ARC) hears applications for archaeological investigations, and takes final actions issuing or denying archaeological clearance permits. The ARC also approves or disqualifies individuals for inclusion on the city's list of approved archaeologists and historians.
ARC meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month (except when otherwise noted to accomodate holidays) at 3:30 pm via Zoom. ARC meetings are public hearings at which the public is invited and encouraged to speak. ARC members are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the Santa Fe City Council.
