This section provides an archive and record of recent and past Legal Notices for the Community Development Department, 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.

Town of Silver City 2004 Comprehensive Plan
The Silver City Comprehensive Plan offers a guide for achieving balanced growth and development in Silver City now and into the future. Early in 2002 the town initiated a process of bringing the 1996 Comprehensive Plan up to date. Throughout Year 2003 and into 2004, the town planning staff, the Comprehensive Plan Task Force and consultants have been working to engage the citizens of Silver City and to gather and review existing information for the Silver City Comprehensive Plan.
The town's comprehensive plan update took place simultaneously with the comprehensive plan update for Grant County. This represents the first time that Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds through New Mexico's Local Government Division have been used simultaneously and under a single contract to develop the respective comprehensive plans of a municipality and county in New Mexico. This has resulted in collaborative efforts of town residents and officials and their counterparts in both the incorporated and unincorporated areas outside Silver City. As a result, the respective comprehensive plans contain many common elements, especially with regard to land use and economic development.
