New Santa Fe County Sustainable Land Development Code

In December 2012, the County Commissioners approved a new Sustainable Land Development Code for Santa Fe County.  Among other changes, the new guidelines require that all new residential construction attain a HERS rating = 70 for better energy efficiency (see http://www.RESNET.us for HERS).  The commissioners estimate that the new SLDC will take 6 mths to one year to go into effect – new zoning maps require approval first.   The SLDC will affect parts of La Entrada and future developed parcels in the College District area.
