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.

Boston Hill remediation under consideration
The NM Energy, Minerals, and Natural Resources Department Abandoned Mine Lands Program is considering performing remediation work on the abandoned mines on Boston Hill. The Albuquerque design firm of Dekker Perich Sabatini is asking the community what types of projects, if any, it would prefer to see on Boston Hill, and will develop a plan to implement them.
A presentation about the planning process (PDF), including the public outreach portion, was presented to the Town Council at its January 8, 2013 meeting. An update (PDF) was presented to the Town Council at its October 8, 2013 meeting.
