Santa Fe, NM – The city’s primary citizen-led board for review and decision making on land use issues has five seats that are opening for consideration of applicants as a result of expiring terms. Mayor Javier M. Gonzales, charged with appointing members of the body, is asking for letters of interest from the community.


The Planning Commission is the principal city land use administrative board and reviews and makes decisions in the City of Santa Fe on Development, Zoning, Sub-Division, Variances and other Land Use issues, among other duties. The planning commission is composed of nine members who are qualified by training, experience and ability to exercise sound and practical judgment on civic, social, economic and governmental affairs. They serve overlapping two year terms.


Mayor Gonzales said, “We’re grateful to all the members of the Planning Commission for their hard work on a board that receives a lot of attention. With five terms expiring, we want to consider a mix of people, including new applicants and sitting board members, who can help us chart the course for growth across our community and be part of finding solutions to challenges we face.”


Sitting commissioners with expiring terms have been contacted and invited to submit a letter if they wish to continue on the board. They include:


John Hyatt
Sarah Propst

Justin Greene

Roman Abeyta

Mark Hogan


Those interested in appointment are asked to submit a letter, addressed to the Governing Body, and mailed, emailed, or delivered by hand to City Clerk Yolanda Vigil.
