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.

About the Community Development Department
What does the Community Development Department do?
On a daily basis, most residents of Silver City leave their homes for school, work, recreation, entertainment or shopping.
Do you ever think about why these places are located where they are?
Does traffic congestion cause you to wish you could walk to school or work, or ride your bike rather than drive?
When you turn on the tap for a glass of water, do you ever think about where the water is coming from or how it is getting to your house?
If so, you are beginning to consider some of the elements comprehensive planning deals with – housing, education, economic development, land use, transportation and infrastructure.
