Archaeological Review Committee
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 4:30 pm in the City Hall Councilor's Conference Room on the first floor of City Hall, 200 Lincoln Ave. 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.

COMMUNICATION WITH ARC MEMBERS
Archaeological Review Committee meetings regarding land use development applications are quasi-judicial public hearings. It is prohibited by law to discuss or communicate in writing or by e-mail with ARC members regarding pending land use development applications prior to an ARC hearing. Members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend ARC hearings to speak about their thoughts or concerns about a specific development application. The public can also submit written comments for consideration by the ARC. Written comments must be submitted to Historic Preservation Division staff, not to ARC members directly. Send written comments to: City of Santa Fe Historic Preservation Division, P.O. Box 909, Santa Fe, NM 87504-0909 or by email to [bot protected email address].
