COMMUNICATION WITH HDRB MEMBERS

 

Historic Districts Review Board 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 HDRB members regarding pending land use development applications prior to an HDRB hearing. Members of the public are invited and encouraged to attend HDRB hearings to speak about their thoughts or concerns about a specific development application. The public can also submit written comments for consideration by the HDRB. Written comments must be submitted to Historic Preservation Division staff, Submit written public comments in 24 hours in advance of the meeting via the virtual comment “button” at https://santafe.primegov.com/public/portal.

 

 

 The Process:

Once you have submitted your application packet, your case will be put on the next available agenda (please see schedule of deadlines below). You will then attend your scheduled hearing where you will discuss your case with the HDRB. At the next hearing (usually two weeks later), the Findings of Fact for your case will be voted on (approved or disapproved). Once Findings of Fact are approved, the appeal period for your case begins. The appeal period is fifteen (15) calendar days. You may file for your permit during this time. However, your permit will not be released until after the appeal period and only if there are no appeals on the case. If there is an appeal filed on a case, the permit will not be released until after the appeal has been completed and the permit will be dependent on the outcome of the appeal. This full process from submittal to end of the appeal period, with no appeals filed, takes approximately sixty (60) days.
