Extraterritorial Subdivision Commission Legal & Public Notices
This section provides an archive and record of recent and past Legal Notices for the Extraterritorial Subdivision Commission, including notices for meetings and events that have already taken place:

Open Meetings Act Compliance
Public access to the proceedings and decision-making processes of governmental boards, agencies and commissions is an essential element of a properly functioning democracy. We believe strongly in open government. Meetings held by public officials to discuss public business, particularly when conducted with the public taxpayers’ money, are the taxpayers’ business. The Open Meetings Act is one of New Mexico’s 'good government' laws, and it deserves the full support of all New Mexicans.

About the ETJ Commission
The Grant County/Silver City Extraterritorial Subdivision Commission was created by the County and Town to:
  1. Create a single application for developers and others which would initiate a single  procedure for the review and consideration of a request to subdivide land located within the ETJ.
  2. Employ a single and comprehensive set of design and technical standards for subdivision development within the ETJ, including, but not limited to standards for roads, water systems, development density, conservation, grading and drainage.
  3.  Provide for an integrated staff for purposes of processing applications and subsequent review.
  4. Create a commission charged with governing the application and review process, and with making final recommendations to the County Commission and Town Council during a joint meeting of the two governing bodies.
