The Planning & Zoning Coordinator helps develop, administer and enforce the city's standards for land use and development. Most of the following zoning requests require an application, multi-department review, a hearing before the Planning & Zoning Commission, and a hearing before the City Council.
A use variance is a request to change the use of a property, i.e. such as putting a commercial enterprise in a residentially-zoned area. These are rarely granted – the owner must show unnecessary hardship, that is, that the property is unable to be used for any other viable use.
Please contact Terri Hamilton Planning & Zoning Coordinator at 575-748-8298 or
to make an appointment to discuss any of these requests.
