    BernCo Commission Continues Santolina Hearing to May 28

    Andy Lenderman

    The Bernalillo County Commission on May 11 voted to continue the hearing on the Santolina Master Plan application to Thursday, May 28. The commission heard two of five appeals at the May 11 meeting. The commission listened to testimony on the first appeal, but did not take action. In that appeal, the developer is appealing certain conditions such as job creation requirements and development costs that the County Planning Commission placed upon the master plan in December 2014. In the second appeal, the commission denied an appeal by the Southwest Organizing Project, New Mexico Health Equity Working Group and Pajarito Village Neighborhood Association to deny the master plan application as recommended by the County Planning Commission last year.

    The County Planning Commission recommended approval of the master plan with conditions last December. Now, the Bernalillo County Commission is hearing the application.

    The May 28 meeting is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. in the Vincent E. Griego Chambers at the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Government Center, One Civic Plaza NW.

    On May 28, the County Commission will hear the remaining three appeals and consider a development agreement that outlines the rules for future development at Santolina.

    Western Albuquerque Land Holdings has requested approval of a Planned Communities Level A Master Plan and Planned Communities Zoning for 13,851 acres of undeveloped land in the southwestern area of Bernalillo County.

    The Santolina Master Plan, which is contingent upon future demand and market conditions, provides a general framework for development over the next 40 to 50 years, to include residential villages and village commercial uses, two business parks, a town center, an industrial/business park, and an urban center, along with parks, trails, public open space, educational facilities, roads and utilities. Over time, the applicant proposes that the project will be developed with approximately 38,000 households and provide approximately 75,000 jobs.
